Editorial Reviews

BookLoons.com
Cohen tells us that 'when the top-selling children's books of all time were compiled in 2001, Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories had sold more copies than either Curious George or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' . . . I was fascinated to learn that Yertle was 'actually a caricature of Adolf Hitler - 'a little domineering guy who pushes people around." Cohen also includes two lost stories - The Ruckus and The Kindly Snather - which both teach a lesson and both made me smile. If you're a Dr. Seuss fan (and who isn't?) then you really should have this anniversary edition . . . in your collection. [Highest rating]

    A treasure - don't let your kids grow up without it!

    This is the first book I remember as a very young child growing up in the mid '50s. I really believe it had a profound effect on my social and moral consciousness. I bought it to read to by children in the mid 80's and they still refer to its lessons from time to time. When I found out I was going to be a grandparent for the first time, it was the first purchase I made as a gift to the next generation of the family. Don't let your children or grandchildren miss out on the opportunity to learn from Yertle, Gertrude, or the the Big Brag! The world would be a better place if we all learned these simple lessons.
