Horton Hears a Who by Dr. Seuss

From the Inside Flap: Illus. in color. Horton, the lovable elephant, tries to protect tiny creatures on a speck of dust. An easy reader with delightful verse and pictures.
My Thoughts: This is among my favorite Seuss books. The kids enjoy hearing it and I like reading it. I enjoy the sound of the made up words in rhyming verses, the joyous feel of the text as it is spoken. It's a good lesson on caring for and respecting others no matter if they are different than you. What's not to like?
