Ever since I learnt of Dr Seuss, Horton has been a favourite character of mine. He is so innocent and full of good intentions, and he sticks to his guns no matter what! I was simply thrilled when Horton Hears a Who came out as a movie (I’d never read the book until now), and I quite fell in love with it. I finally got the book (as you can see), and though I see how different the movie is from the original, I love them both just as much!
I think this book is a nice story to tell a child. There’s so much a child can learn from it without being preached at.
A person’s a person no matter how small.
Horton’s loyalty is also so touching. And one cannot forget the expressive illustrations! I just can’t wait to start reading this to my son!
