A great video for young and old
I loved this when I was younger. Although it isn't done like The Lorax or The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, both of which are one-story, half-hour videos, it's still enjoyable.
Dr Suess' ABC is meant for children too young to perhaps sit though the lengthened versions of The Lorax or The Grinch, with their songs, added lines, and longer run times. Instead, each story on the tape takes about ten minutes to do. What shows on the screen are the exact illustrations in the books, while the words are voiced over, just as if someone was reading the book there with the viewer. If a child cannot sit through the full time of the tape, no problem! Just watch one story, stop the tape, and view the others later!
Parents can enjoy it, too, as it means the can re-experience the fun of hearing Dr. Suess, rather than being the one who reads the story. A great way to take a break from say, reading book after book before bedtime.
