Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carolyn Mott Ford
Therodor Seuss Geisel has offered generations of young readers amusement, but, of course, his books give them much more—much, much, more, in fact. Many incorporate a gentle lesson nicely presented, wrapped in wondrous rhyme and illustrated with pictures of unusual settings as well as unusual, but expressive characters of every type and size. One lesson in this book is often voiced. "A person's a person, no matter how small." The other lesson is that one person can indeed make a difference, especially when that one person joins in with all his neighbors and friends. This book, released as the movie of the same name is also released, is an attractive party edition and, as such, is slightly larger than the traditional Dr. Seuss hardcover. Kids are moved by the story of the huge, soft-hearted elephant who has such a touching regard for the little folks in Who-ville. This book would be great for reading aloud at bedtime.
