My friend Kevin is reading a list of best children's books. I am following suite in order to discuss the books with him. By default, I give the books four-stars because they're good at what they're intended to do, which is to keep the attention of children and introduce them to literature.

YERTLE can be rearranged into YETLER!!!!! WHICH SOUNDS LIKE HITLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OHHHHH FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCCCCCCKKK!!!!!

Yertle the Turtle is an awesome story! Great ties to history as well-Paul Revere seeking freedom from the British, and even a great way to talk about the Declaration of Independence and the meaning the words can have behind it.

Gertrude McFuzz is a great Dr. Seuss story about a bird that is unhappy with her tail feathers because she only has one. She finds a way, using magic, to increase her tail feathers.

Once she gets rid of all the excess feathers, she is happy to be back to normal. This story has a great message of being happy with what you h ...more

Dr. Seuss membuat buku ini sebagai versi anak-anak untuk mengenal bahayanya ambisi seorang pemimpin. Ambisi untuk berkuasa tanpa memikirkan kesejahteraan. Tokoh Yertle mewakili sosok Hitler di dunia nyata.

Fantastic book for kids! So imaginative and creative. Easy read that children will find delightful!

Dr. Seuss is always brilliant! His stories and rhymes are fun and entertaining! Some of my all time favorites!! Such a great way to entertain children and get them interested in reading!
