Trivia to Know About Hop on Pop

  • Is there a review of Hop on Pop from a well-known figure?

    A former librarian and first lady, Laura Bush named Hop on Pop as one of her favorite books in a 2006 Wall Street Journal Article. She said, “Among children’s books, Hop on Pop has a lot of personal meaning for me. It features Dr. Seuss’s typically wonderful illustrations and rhymes, of course, but the main thing for me is the family memory — the loving memory — that the book evokes of George lying on the floor and reading it to our daughters, Barbara and Jenna. They were little bitty things, and they took Hop on Pop literally, and jumped on him — we have the pictures to prove it.”
  • Was this book ever banned?

    Back in 2014, The New York Times covered a story about a parent and father’s rights activist who complained to the Toronto Public Library about Hop on Pop “encourag[ing] children to use violence against their fathers,” but the library didn’t find merit in the complaint.
