Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Mom's Review: Absolutely brilliant book about diversity, acceptance and the stupidity of war that is just as relevant today as when it was written in 1984 (although obviously written years earlier). Done with Seuss' usual delightful artwork and wonderful rhyme, it is one of those stories that will stand the tests of time. This is one of my favorite books of all time ever since it was introduced to me by my professor for the Children's Literature course I took in college. I am still amazed that this book has been challenged or banned from various libraries since it was originally published. I think they miss the whole point of what Seuss was trying to get across -- but than again anyone who bans book aren't exactly working with a full deck. (Jake: Doesn't that mean you are prejudiced against book burners Mom: Smart alec!) Mom's Rating: 10/10 Jake's Review: Jake: So mom these people are fighting over the way they butter their bread, isn't that kind of stupid. Mom: You remember how we talked about Russia and the Cold War Jake: Ohhh, I get it he's talking about the Russians and the Americans and he is teaching me a moral lesson that fighting over being different is kinda dumb -- mom Seuss is kinda like you eh? Mom: Dude that is the nicest thing you have ever said - come give me a hug Jake: Dad, mom's getting all girly again - make her stop Mom: Now I am going to teach you another term - misogynistic pig Jake: The book is pretty good with fun pictures and I like the way he rhymes everything. I can see why mom likes it, Dr Seuss is one cool dude. It is kinda depressing and I didn't like that at the end you don't know find out if they did blow each other up. Jake's Rating: 9/10

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Teaching Kids Early It's never too young to learn good manners. Correct? And with this book its never too young to learn about racism and war. Sounds heavy for the young minds but this book is funny, easy to read (if your tongue is well oiled!) and lighthearted fun. It can, though, spawn further discussion on tolerance, and arms race. "Here's the end of that terrible town...who eat bread with the butter side down.!"
