If you are a racist, umm, I mean Star Belly Sneetch, you should buy and read this book. It will simplify your ignorance to the point where even you might be able to understand the implications of your own racism.
If you are not a racist, you should buy this book. It will simplify racists to the point that you will give a hardy chuckle -- and wish that the good old doctor could have lived forever . . . .

This Dr. Seuss offering I read to my own children 25 yrs. ago, and now my grandchildren are enjoying this book, as well. These stories are less non-sensical, yet convey a message in a whimsical way. Our kids ESPECIALLY like the pale green pants story, and when my 7 yr. old granddaughter read it to ME the other night, I could say it right along with her......I've read it so many times, I know it by heart!! I highly recommend this particular Dr. Seuss book.

I obviously don't HAVE to write a review about any Dr.Seuss books but it's amazing how they bring back memories. Now, 20 yrs after these books were read to me, my husband and I get to read them to our daughter, 3 months old. We're hoping that one day she will carry on the tradition of reading these books to her children. I'm hoping to own them all :)

I loved this book, it relates so much to the prejudice crimes of todays society. I bet a million bucks that that is how Seuss got his inspiration to write thsi wonderful childrens book. I read in my HONORS reading class and i absolutly loved it. It is a star book.

This is definitely one of my favorite books! It's a classic, for young and old alike. I've read it countless times, it just keeps getting better. They might be childrens' stories, but there is a lesson to be learned from each of them.

I personally feel that lyrical poetry is a wonderful tool to help children learn to read. It helps them to feel the rhythms of the English language, they can anticipate what will come next, and then they can memorize passages - it's just a wonderful thing. I often wonder if my love of Shakespeare developed from all those readings of How the Grinch Stole Christmas (William is most likely rolling in his grave right now...)
This book is loads of fun - expect squeals of delight when you read the story of the frightful "empty Pants with nobody inside 'em". You can't beat the Sneetches for a hidden story about equality, and the story about too many Daves is a riot! Especially since most of us DO know too many Daves!!
