Choose kindness with Dr. Seuss, Horton the elephant, and the Whos of Who -ville in this classic picture book about caring for others! A person's a person, no matter how small. Everyone's favorite elephant stars in this heartwarming and timeless story for readers of all ages. In the colorful Jungle of Nool, Horton discovers something that at first seems impossible: a tiny speck of dust contains an entire miniature world-- Who -ville--complete with houses and grocery stores and even a mayor! But when no one will stand up for the Whos of Who -ville, Horton uses his elephant-sized heart to save the day. This tale of compassion and determination proves that any person, big or small, can choose to speak out for what is right. This story showcases the very best of Dr. Seuss, from the moving message to the charming rhymes and imaginative illustrations. No bookshelf is complete without Horton and the Whos ! Do you see what I mean? . . . They've proved they ARE persons, no matter how small. And their whole world was saved by the Smallest of All! "Pretty much all the stuff you need to know is in Dr. Seuss." -President Barack Obama
