Customer Reviews of Yertle The Turtle And Other Stories

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from totally amazing This is one of the best books ever written by Dr. Seuss. Yertle the Turtle is an amazing story. It applies to everyday life through the fact that if we try to gain power without recognizing the people who help us, or awknowledge that they are even there, we will just fall apart. This is a great book and everyone should read it.
