"A person's a person, no matter how small." - Horton Hears A Who, Dr. Seuss.
Most kids enjoy being read to, no matter the book. I will say that it's a whole lot of fun when you find one that the REALLY enjoy. We'd been through a number of different topics, looks, feels, and such with our 'Lil Man. He'd enjoyed the different themes, colors, topics, illustration styles and all. Then he remembered the book that was given to his big sis. Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears A Who Pop-Up!
We can all recall our own personal experience with Dr. Seuss and his wonderful books. Whether our love encompassed a floral colored pork and egg dish, or the tale of a rotten beastie that tried to hijack our most beloved holiday season, there's was a time we all embraced "the Seuss". We love the rhyming structure and tempo. We enjoy the wildly odd names of the characters, places, and exclamations. They're all wonderful, and here's one we love a ton.
Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears A Who Pop-Up! is a great addition to your library. The story is just a great as it's ever been, but the pop-ups by David A. Carter take it to another level. The pop-up portion brings the already amazing and fun illustrations forward and engages the reader (and read to) like never before. The added dimension allows for even more imagination. There's a handful of pull tabs that add a little bit of action to the experience. Remember though, it's a pop-up book. Small hands WILL destroy it if allowed!
