Several of Dr Suess stories are based on his social and political views. I feel this is probably his best executed literary work.
If you are planning to give it as a birthday gift to other kids, you should consider their age and background.
I love all the books by Dr. Seuss and enjoy reading
them out to my three-year old son. He loves The
Cat in the Hat and The Lorax, both famous works
by Dr. Seuss.
The writer is a fine rhymester, creating lovely, musical
lines. Read this one:
"Mister!" He said with a sawdusty sneeze,
"I am the Lorax. I speak for the trees.
I speak for the trees, for the trees have no tongues.
And I'm asking you, sir, at the top of my lungs,"
he was very upset as he shouted and puffed--
"What's that THING you've made out of my Truffula tuft?"
I recommend all the books by Dr Seuss -- they are available for
different age groups -- as their reading will develop a love for
words and language at an early age.
We must thank God for Dr. Seuss and his books.

Furthermore, what illustrations are left have been awkwardly and often clumsily cropped into new dimensions, cutting out masses of Seuss' original drawings and generally messing up what used to be lovely balanced and detailed compositions. If you're buying this book for the art as well as the story, you should know that this book just wrecks the half of the illustrations which haven't been cut out entirely.
Please find yourself a complete copy and experience this book the way Dr. Seuss intended. I'm horrified to imagine what the author would think of this blundersome hack-job edit of one of the great children's masterpieces.
Revisiting this book as an adult, you realise that it's a very well-written story about family, commercialisation, the environment and redemption (I mean, it's not "Of Mice and Men", but you know...). It's one of the Seuss books that's more appropriate for older children. Finally, coming up with lots of other things you could use a Thneed for is now a family joke, and a very creative one!
This is a really good book for introducing children to what happens when we abuse our environment. Perfect book for today's society. It discusses and clearly shows how the destruction of one thing can impact the entire eco system around it.
Buy this, share it with your children..start the conversations at an early age. My little one is 5 and really enjoyed the story plus the conversation we had afterwards..
