Kids love repetition of stories they like. I so much prefer interesting stories like Potter's to some of the later Dr. Seuss. The first Seuss books were good: Bartholomew and the Five Hundred Hats, To Think that I Saw it on Mulberry Street, If I Ran the Zoo, etc. The later ones got a little boring (for me) to read and read and read, although I did like Green Eggs and Ham. When my daughter was ten and having a birthday sleepover, we heard all this ruckus in the kitchen at 4:00 a.m. There they were, six little girls fixing green eggs and ham for their (early) breakfast!!!
