Just because they’re different, the Sneetches find that folks treat them in a snooty and funny manner. In the face of such ignorance, the Sneetches must show that they shouldn’t be discriminated against because of their distinct colour and shape. Dr. Seuss’ subtle morality comes through in all shades in The Sneetches and Other Stories,...

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Little wonders 'The Sneetches' is probably my least favourite story in this book. Unfortunately it's also the longest and most fleshed out. The story, as well as other stories in the book, contain life lessons that are meaningful to little children and narrated in the usual loving detailed art work that's known for Dr. Seuss' books. Their composition though feels somewhat disorienting and loses focus as if stories were thrown in together to fill the page counts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Source for Teaching About Tolerance of Diversity "Ronald remember, when you are out walking, you walk past a sneetch of that sort without talking. Keep your snoot in the air and remember to snort. We have no touch whatever with the PLAIN bellied sort!" To have a star on your belly once made you the BETTER sneetch. Then an inventor comes to town who could put stars on the PLAIN-bellied sneetches...for the right price. Now, to seperate them once again, the star-bellies paid a great price to have their stars removed...until one day they realized that it was just plain silly to go on this way: Star or No-star had no true basis in defining who you are. Fantastic lesson in tolerance of diversity!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Valuable Lessons A collection of brilliant stories that all can learn from, regardless of age. Sometimes, we must look at the world through the eyes of a child to really grasp what it's all about. Highly recommended to all.

Just because they’re different, the Sneetches find that folks treat them in a snooty and funny manner. In the face of such ignorance, the Sneetches must show that they shouldn’t be discriminated against because of their distinct colour and shape. Dr. Seuss’ subtle morality comes through in all shades in The Sneetches and Other Stories, a collection that celebrates being different. Drawn in trademark style, complete with exuberance and abstraction, it teaches kids decent values while entertaining them with great stories.
