    1. This book TERRIFIED me to no end as a child. Well into my 20s, I remember shuddering at the illustrations of the empty pants, framed in the eerie blue of twilight, jumping off a clothesline and chasing a little boy through the woods. If ever Dr. Seuss came up in conversation I would ask a friend, "Do you remember such and such a book about the pants?" Sure enough I would meet a fellow traveler who was also terrified of this book. Who cares about the payoff, the setup is enough to strike life-lon [...]

    2. Dr. Seuss no defrauda.Uno de mis propósitos para este año, es ya no comprarle libros a mi hija, hasta que terminemos de leer los que ya tenemos en casa, pero como buena mama lectora, al ver este libro no me pude resistir.La historia es simple, donde el protagonista ve unos pantalones flotando, y les tiene miedo. Una historia muy divertida, que nos enseña a enfrentar nuestros miedos.

    3. Dr Seuss' rhymes make Eminem look like a learner.His humor makes Kevin hart's jokes seem just about as funny and absorbing as stale bread and watching me try to rhyme.Uh-oh.☑ And No. I'm not done yet. I'm still trying to experience the wonders of his little works- something I should have experienced years ago O.o #Tolatecomersandlatebloomers

    4. 3.5"I said, I do not fear those pants with nobody inside them. I said, and said, and said those words. I said them but I lied them." Even if you're the bravest person you know, seeing a pair of pants with nobody inside them will freeze your blood in your veins, especially if they seem follow you everywhere and if you're the kind of people who like to get out in the night.

    5. Pretty sure we'll be reading this book every night. The MC wasn't scared, and neither was my kid. Not of no spooky green pale pants, not even with nobody inside 'em!

    6. Somehow this is my first time reading this book. My kids loved that it glows in the dark. We had to interrupt our reading to turn off the lights repeatedly to see the creature and the pants and the moon glowing. Cute story metimes the things we fear are nothing to fear at allor perhaps they are just as afraid of us as we are of them.

    7. "I said, I do not fear those pants with nobody inside them. I said, and said, and said those words. I said them but I lied them."O to think that I shall never seeA way to write like Dr. Seuss.And even if I did,Well, it would be completely derivative.

    8. That's his second book I read and I'm glad I enjoyed this one, especially the message from the story.

    9. This book was stellar! It is a newer Seuss book since my son was small. It teaches that sometimes things we are afraid of are just as afraid of us. I actually bought this as a Kindle "teach me to read" app. There were several on sale because of Dr. Seuss's birthday, this app was only 99¢ (plus I received free coins towards purchasing other apps). The teaching features are marvelous. You can have it set three ways: teaching, read it myself, and auto-play.I bought ten of these Seuss apps today fo [...]

    10. What's not to like about Dr Seuss? A bit of a silly, rhyming story about a pair of wandering pants the main character is frightened of. But I think this story also helps show kids that often the things we are afraid of are really just things we don't understand or haven't had experience with. Getting to know something/someone can ease our fears of differentness, especially when our fear is not really warranted.

    11. This is a fun book to read around halloween time when children are excited about all of the holiday's "scary" activities. It's so silly that everyone is sure to enjoy it. It could also be used to relate to school as well. Becasue many children are afraid of the anxiety or the myths that come along with a new school year, this book could be a teacher's way of lightening the mood and the environment of the classroom in a way that makes students laugh.

    12. I hadn't even heard of this story until I had my son and started reading him all the Seuss I could get my hands on. This is absolutely my favorite. It flows perfectly when read aloud and it's so creepy and funny. One of my favorite lines ever: "I said, I do not fear those pants with nobody inside them. I said, and said, and said those words. I said them but I lied them."

    13. This has always been one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books, mostly because the idea is so bizarre yet somehow poignant -- a guy afraid of a pair of empty pale green pants. My favorite line: "I said, 'I do not fear those pants with nobody inside them.' I said and said and said those words. I said them, but I lied them."

    14. Great book about how to overcome a fear by realizing that your fear may be as scared as you are. This book goes to show that once we get to know one another, we have more in common than what our fear told us and we can begin to mend that bridge to become friends.

    15. The first character in the book was out and came across a pair of green pants with no one in them. they kept meeting and the character wasn't scared but he kept running away. Until one night, they came across each other but the green pants became sad and started whimpering. The character realises that I was just as strange to them as they were to me. They went to meet often and would talk to each other. This is a lovely story with all the illustrations green except the characters. It is a lovely [...]

    16. This is one of my favorites from Dr. Seuss even though it isn't one of his more popular ones. This book does a great job at showing kids that even though you are scared of something, it might be because of nothing. If something scares you, then try to face the fear and it might turn out better than expected. I like this book because it shows children that what they are afraid of might be afraid of them too, so you should always try to face you fears. Also, Dr. Seuss incorporates bigger words and [...]

    17. What Was I Scared Of? would be a great book to read to the classroom around Halloween time. It's told in first person. The main character keeps running across a spooky pair of empty green pants. He is very afraid until he discovers that the pants are scared of him as well. They then become friends. We learn that it's ok to admit when we are scared and that sometimes our fears are unfounded. The pages all have a lot of dark blue which adds to the spooky feeling.

    18. My 3.5-year-old showed me this book at preschool when I picked her up one day, and said she wanted our own copy. I don't know whether she was scared the first time it was read to her, but with me she's always responded to the humor rather than the spookiness ("but they're just pants!" she says giggling). I appreciate the message that some things aren't scary once you get to know them.

    19. My son is obsessed with this book! I’ve read it multiple times in one day for him. He looks the suspense he gets even if he knows what’s coming. Definitely a toddlers favorite.

    20. Character spends the night terrified of a pair of pants, come to find the pants are terrified of him. Discover more, fear less.
