A good story about an elephant who saves the world of the little people. He has to navigate his way against the other animals to prove the worthiness of the small people and that they really exist. Horton is busy is enjoying himself when he realizes small person by using his trunk to navigate where that speck goes on a "very soft clover." A kangaroo comes along on the way and looks down at the elephant and looks down at what he does say. Horton wants to save the small persons while the Kangaroo is careless and here is the antagonist of the story. Horton is now a rumor in his community (the jungle) because he is a very big animal while the speck is tiny. A monkey comes along and takes the little person away. The monkey gave it to a large field of clovers. The small persons finally proved their existence by making as much noise as they possibly could. A wonderful pop-up book for grades K-3. ( )

The small creatures who live on a speck of dust are threatened with destruction until the smallest Who of all helps convince Horton and his friends that Whos really exist. Horton takes responsibility to keep the Whos safe. I absolutely love pop up books. This one was on of my favorite. ( )

Not much to say it's Dr. Suess! My daughter loved it and so did I. Story was awesome same as when i was a kid and the addition of pop ups was great putting a new spin on a classic. ( )

Horton Hears a Who is great for reading to small children. Students could predict what they think would happen next in the story. Also, becuase of its rhythmic pattern children would easly pay attention to the story. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375841946, Hardcover)

Unlike other pop-up adaptations that use text abridgments, this book contains the complete text of Horton Hears a Who! David A. Carter has skillfully followed Seuss’s signature pacing by alternating five big, blow-out pop-ups with 11 booklets, pull tabs galore, and many special effects. In all, ten glorious spreads bring this classic to life in magnificent full color.

Horton finds an entire city of Whos on a speck of dust, but, since no one else can see them, no one believes they exist.
