How the Grinch Stole Christmas!: A 50th Anniversary Retrospective
And the world would have been an infinitely better place had Ron Howard never gotten his hands on this story.
“How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is Dr. Seuss’ memorable classic about how the Grinch tried to steal all the presents from the Whos of Who-ville to spoil their Christmas. “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” is definitely the best out of all of Dr. Seuss’ books that many children will enjoy for many generations.
Dr. Seuss’ tale of finding the true meaning of the Christmas spirit has been memorable in many generations’ eyes and the writing is excellent as it is written in a creative way by using a rhy ...more

Everyone knows the wonderful story of the mean-green ole Grinch who tried to stop Christmas from coming to Who-ville, and that his itty-bitty heart grew three sizes larger the day he learned the true meaning of Christmas from the adorable little WHO town-folk.
This has been one of my favorite stories since it first aired on TV back in 1966, and I still try to watch it every year even though it someti...more
One of the annoying things about English not being my first language is that I missed out on a lot of popular children's books. And the thing is, when you do get to read them as an adult, you are fully aware you're not experiencing them as you were meant to - there are a great many books beloved by English speaking people which I read and go, "Oh, okay, was that it?"
Not the Grinch, though!
I got this book for Christmas, last year, a gift from a friend of mine from the USA. And I loved it!!

I've always loved Christmas stories! This is one that I never read as a kid, but I did see the movie and I hated it, so it always put me off reading the book.
Now that I've got over my hate for the movie, I was able to actually able to enjoy the book. And I really did enjoy it!
It's not exactly the sweetest story ever written, but it ends happily, so I'm pretty sure that's all that ma ...more
A brilliant and popular story about a creature that aims to end the Christmas joy, that most of the children would have seen as a movie. However, when asked, many pupils have never read any Dr Seuss stories. This is a terrible shame.
These brilliantly imaginative rhymes and riddles – in my opinion – need to be read by children of all ages. The simplicity of the illustrations means that nothing is distracting the reader from the hilarious and completely bo ...more
No, but seriously it is christmas and here in Denmark we open our presents the 24th at christmas EVE!
So today I am enjoying the rest of the christmas with movies and I saw The Grinch.
In Denmark Dr. Seuss is not well known. We have learned about Dr. Seuss thanks to the movies. So when I saw the movie, I wanted to try the book.
It is very short, but it is also a children's picture book. I ...more
I used to have all of the Dr. Seuss books, but my mom shoved them off on a friends younger kids during a particularly enthusiastic spring cleaning day a few years ago. Me and my cousin used to make omelettes and fry ham and add green colouring so we could have green eggs and ham for breakfast. ...more

It is always the child in us!!'
The other day, i heard my hubby talking to his friend about the pains i take to get hold of the gems in children's literature, so as to inculcate the love of reading in my kids. But apparently he is as yet unaware that introducing our kids to the fascinating world of books is ...more

stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before. What if Christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more.”
