The Butter Battle Book, Dr. Seuss's classic cautionary tale, introduces readers to the important lesson of respecting differences. The Yooks and Zooks share a love of buttered bread, but animosity brews between the two groups because they prefer to enjoy the tasty treat differently. The timeless and topical rhyming text is an ideal way to teach young children about the issues of tolerance and respect. Whether in the home or in the classroom, The Butter Battle Book is a must-have for readers of all ages.

Published 1984? Too bad Seuss waited so long. But I suppose he got fed up when Ronald Reagan got gung-ho with his 'Star Wars' (Strategic Defense Initiative). This book is anything but subtle, and it is more universally applicable than just to the Cold War. Bonus * for the non-ending. Read full review
