I don't remember a lot about this one, beyond the fact that I definitely read it as a kid.

How the grinch stole Christmas is one of my all time favorite books. The plot is well written and intriguing. The theme behind it is the importance of loving others and making them feel included. The setting is incredible as "whoville" is so intricately designed and illustrated and show cases Dr.Seuss incredible imagination. ( )

I love this book and I love the cartoon movie. I think this is a great story for children to have them understand that Christmas is not only about gifts but being together.

Good lesson for kids in how to learn to be tolerant of noise and to share, as well as in exploitation of those weaker than oneself! :-) ( )
