Books with a Beu

Jamie Beu, owner and co-author (with his wife) of CatholicFamily.info, is a "cradle Catholic", devoted husband, and father of two girls. He is a regular contributor to his parish newsletter, as well as an impassioned defender of the faith who is able to both support and challenge others as necessary -- all in an effort to build-up Christ's Kingdom on Earth. To this end, he does a lot of reading - not just of religious books (for education and research), but also of secular books, both to decompress as well as to keep a finger on the pulse of pop culture (the better to relate to others, as well as to help restore the culture).

Fox in Socks (Beginner Books)

Fox in Socks - Dr. Seuss books for kids come
books for kooks go
books for cooks and kooks and kids go

books for kids are often so-so
this is not a book for doodoos
try reading when they're ready to doze

your tongue will slip
your tongue will crimp
you'll feel you babble like a chimp

your kid will smile
your kid will laugh
make it a bribe, just do the math
I use it to make mine take a bath

when babies want books to take a bath
this is what's called a baby bath book

when those babies take a bath
and the bath is in blueberry bubbles
this is called a baby blueberry bubble bath book

and when those babies babble babbles with other babies in the bath about this book and the bath is filled with bubbles and those bubbles are blueberry, it's called a:
babbling babies blueberry bubble bath book

Thank you, thank you, Dr. Seuss, sir!
Thank you for all the use, sir,
that I get from reading your book, sir.
