Dr. Seuss is always a good read! These three stories have wonderful rhyming (as most Dr. S stories do) and great lessons to be learned, as well. Good stories to read aloud and then talk about! Read full review
Yertle The Turtle tries to get all the turtles in the pond of Sala-ma-Sond to make a throne for him, a bear and a hare argue who can hear or smell farther, but they can discover that an inchworm can see almost five thousand miles, Gertrude McFuzz swallows pills to get more tails than Lolla-Lee-Loo, and a lot of great things in the last story!
