    and Yertle the Turtle was a treatise on Hitler. Very political. In sum, if Dr. Seuss wrote it, I love it!

    That's my all time favourite Dr. Seuss book. I even bought the digitable version for my iPod Touch. I would love to see Lorax fabrics!

    I love Dr Seuss, and always really loved The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins, but I have no idea why. I don't even wear hats!

    I love the Lorax. It was my favorite children's book and still makes me cry. I gave a copy to my oldest nephew for Christmas this year. My brother told me that is was very welcome as he was going to buy it for Luke anyway.

    Oh yes to ALL Dr Seuss books. I just love them. But still think the creator was on drugs. How else could he come up with the words and the creatures he used. LOL Still ya gotta love his crativity.

    'And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street'
    'the 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins'
    'Bartlolomew Cubbins and the Oobleck'
    'Yertle the Turtle'
    I guess I did not see the political statements made by the author when I was reading the books as a child. I just enjoyed the silliness of the rhymes and illustrations.

    The Lorax is my favorite Dr. Seuss book of all time. The movie is also fantastic. I still remember watching it every Earth Day in elementary school.

    Hmmm, I love One Fish, Two Fish because it was the one that both my daughters could read first. But probably my favorite to read was Fox in Sox; and yes, my tongue was numb every time I read it! (It definitely is a read aloud book)

    My all time favorite is the 'star belly sneeches'. Although I liked the Lorax for his eco friendly tale.

    I loved the Lorax as a child. It's pretty funny how differently you see things as a child vs. as an adult. I simply loved the Lorax as a good story; now as an adult the first thing that strikes me is what a strong statement it makes about environmentalism. Same goes for Charlotte's Web - when I was a small child, I just loved the story. When my oldest child was old enough to see it, I watched it with him and was outraged that the (female) spider did all the hard work, while the (male) pig got all the credit! ROFL!!!
