Children's Book Review: Dr. Seuss: Horton Hears a Who!

This is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss story.  Only Horton the elephant can hear the people of Whoville on his speck of dust.  He takes it upon himself to keep them safe because they are so vulnerable on their speck.  However the other forest creatures, who don't hear as well, are determine Horton has gone bonkers, and the are convinced they must make him stop.  Horton's theme is important, "A person is a person no matter how small."  This theme has many implications in life.  However even so it comes to the point that the dust speck will be boiled in beezlenut juice if they are not heard.  Everyone must help; even the slacker JO JO who would rather play with his yo-yo.
