Horton Hears a Who! by Dr. Seuss | Goodreads
Horton, the elephant, appears again (he was introduced to the world in Horton Hatches the Egg), which is one of the most famous characters of Dr. Seuss. I was first introduced to the story of Horton Hears a Who last year in an apologetics class. Since then I haven't been able to get enough of it. When I found out they were making a movie from the book I was completely thrilled! It didn't even matter if they messed it up, even though I knew they wouldn't, so long as they were making a movie of it! Attractive illustrations and exciting verse – both very dynamic, always moving always going somewhere new; both very strange, silly and bizarre – all in an extremely accessible, engaging and compelling (and let’s not forget educational) way – which creates Dr Seuss’s fantastically immersive world.Read the story and pause at different points to discuss how Horton is feeling. Could you think of questions to ask him at that point?

Horton Hears a Who! is written in anapestic tetrameter, like many other Dr. Seuss books.  Unlike some of his books, however, Horton contains a strong moral message—"a person's a person, no matter how small"—which Thomas Fensch identifies as "universal, multinational, multi-ethnic. In a word: Equality".  I am really enjoying rediscovering all these lovely children's books that I enjoyed reading with my own children, and now with my grandchildren. In the fifties, my Mom was head librarian for our small-town library (politically, we were termed a Police Village, whatever that meant).
