Dr. Seuss is the master of rhyme, and this beautiful hardcover book featuring thirteen of his stories is a perfect way to display his work. Each clever story inspires readers in a unique way. They emphasize concepts like being creative, being an individual, and being respectful of each other and our planet. Seuss turns the world upside down and inside out, and yet somehow everything seems to make sense. He leaves readers laughing and thinking at the same time. Read them out loud and read them often, because as we hear from those who contributed their thoughts in this special edition, these little stories can have a big impact.
