Typical Dr. Seuss fare. It wasn't one of my favourites as a kid, but I liked it okay.

This book could be used just for enjoyment as reading to the kids as a read-aloud. ( )

I love this children's book! The book has a great overall message, and the illustrations are spot on. I love the lesson that children learn from this book. "A person's a person, no matter how small" ( )
