Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose by Dr. SeussThe only thing going through my mind while reading this was: Why the hell didnt I read anything by Dr. Seuss when I was young? :/
Dr. Seusss books are insanely cute and smart for the young ones! They are witty, easy to read, and poetic, let alone the life lessons the carry.
This one was really nice. As the name suggests, it teaches the kid to be nice hearted and kind, but at the same time it shows how nice peoples kindness might be taken for weakness or stupidity.
Im really impressed by how Dr. Seuss can use fictional characters, let those be animals or even creatures from his imagination, to tell a realistic story with a sold lesson.
I shall read such stories to my kids one day. <3

And the Grinch, with his Grinch-feet ice cold in the snow, stood puzzling and puzzling, how could it be so? It came without ribbons. It came without tags. It came without packages, boxes or bags. What if Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. It all started in June , in a building on Wall Street … far, far away.

Reviewing "The Lorax" has me conflicted. Like the book upon which the movie is based, the movie version of "The Lorax" tells an important cautionary tale about environmental and social responsibility. It's perhaps even more timely and relevant now than it was in the s when Dr. Seuss penned the classic illustrated yarn. Corporate greed with no thought of environmental sustainability has its implications and they can be devastating. The movie stays true to this message, but its execution left me underwhelmed.
