I was never aware of this Dr. Seuss book and it is ashame it isn't more popular like some of the others. The Sneetches is a great story of being an outsider/insider and learning to be yourself. The consequences may be out of a 3 year olds range for now, but that can explained. I really enjoyed the meaning of the story. The other stories are quite fun. There is one about green pants and my daughter just laughed and laughed at this story. It was so much fun and I recommend it for the lesson and just the absurdity of pants walking around by itself. My daughter and I had great fun reading this book.

You'll remember this story for years. It is the perfect tale of what it means to belong and what we're willing to do in order to be an insider.

I liked the Sneetches by Dr. Seuss this book is about funny stuff and it is so very funny. It makes me laugh and I love it so much. He makes up funny rhyming words. My favorite part of the book is when the Sneetches got mad because they have stars and that is funny. I would wnite this book because people will love it. By GT (grade 1)

A fascinating children's story about the meaninglessness in small differences of appearance and character.

My son LOVES this book! He's 5yr old but we've been reading Dr. Seuss to him as far back as we can remember. This book along w/99% of Dr. Seuss's other books are so amazing & classic! :)

Teaching ESL, I often run into difficulty finding stories that are appropriate for high school aged students, but are easy to understand. Dr. Seuss stories are always a hit with these students. You can discuss the difference in the way you read between something like this and, for example, the school newspaper. They pick up vocabulary and even some grammar and enjoy the story lines.

All of the stories in this book are fabulous, but The Sneetches is my all time favorite Dr. Seuss story. This story has wonderful illustrations and examines prejudice in a way that children can grasp and adults can appreciate. It is a fun story and there are no pieces of the lesson to be learned that are inappropriate for the youngest children who experience this book. There are the usual crazy contraptions and Seussisms that you can find in all of his books. It is filled with rhymes and imagination. I bought this book to read to four year olds. They understood the concepts. My own seven year old still enjoys the book and we still read it at least once a a month.

The star bellied sneetch is an excellent story about understanding personal worth and the worth of people as individuals. An excellent way to introduce a concept that will confront children their entire life. Oh, to be an individual ...

I remember loving The Sneetches as a child and our son (3 years) has been picking this book out every night for bedtime. There are such great interpersonal/citizenship lessons woven into these stories. All 4 stories are brilliantly written and sweet.

The lessons learned in the Dr. Seuss books are extremely well presented. My grand daughter wants one story read to her every night before bed time. One of my drama classes chose "Green Eggs and Ham" to dramatize, create props, and present to the kindergarten and first grade classes in our area. This was such a hit and great choice for the audience as they were totally mesmerized by the presentation. Dr. Seuss is always a good choice.

Satire with satisfying endings, illustrates some of those common human shortcomings that often make us quite shortsighted.

this is a great book about the flock mentality of humanity. Every child should have the opportunity to read this great book and to know that in God's eye we all have 'stars upon thars'

This was probably my favorite, besides There's a Wocket in my Pocket. I've really enjoyed reading these books growing up and glad that this one was actually on Nook, yay! :) It teaches a very good lesson on how to treat people who are different.
