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.

It's Dr. Seuss! What more can you say? Inspirational, appropriate and fun for any age.
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!
Wish I could find a version of these two stories separately - they were always my favorite Seuss books!
Jealousy and Pride go before being "stuck"...enjoy being you!
