    Many of Dr Seuss s books are highly moralistic Such moralism can be either good or bad, depending on how it s communicated and what you are aiming to teach your children In the case of Horton Hears a Who , I think the moral is subtly and beautifully communicated The book covertly teaches children to bravely stand up for the little guy in the face of bullies, even if that courage means mocker...
