I read them as a 5-year-old and I read them now. They are a wonderful tool to teach English as a foreign language as the words are simple but the meanings are significant and sophisticated.

For those who don't know, the Sneetches is a story about the Sneetches with stars on their bellies, and those without. The star bellied sneetches won't talk to those without. When a stranger comes to town and offers to put stars on the bellies of those without for three dollars each, everything changes. As the original star bellied sneetches pay ten dollars each to remove their stars to remain different the two groups eventually realise they really aren't that different after all.
The Zax is a story about stubbornness and how sometimes it is better to give a little than to stand firmly in your place.
Too Many Daves is a cute and funny poem with no real meaning behind it (as far as I can tell).
What Was I Scared Of? is a bizarre story about a boy who is afraid of an empty pair of trousers he sees in the woods. Eventually he realises that they can be friends.
Every kid should grow up on Dr. Suess, and I recommend this collection whole heartedly, as the Sneetches alone make it worth the purchase.
Plus a few other story’s... but the trouser one is the best imo, read it loads of times
I thoroughly recommend this story as a great way to discuss issues with youger children.
