Enhance your purchase
A person's a person, no matter how small.
Everyone's favorite elephant stars in this heartwarming and timeless story for readers of all ages. In the colorful Jungle of Nool, Horton discovers something that at first seems impossible: a tiny speck of dust contains an entire miniature world--Who-ville--complete with houses and grocery stores and even a mayor! But when no one will stand up for the Whos of Who-ville, Horton uses his elephant-sized heart to save the day. This tale of compassion and determination proves that any person, big or small, can choose to speak out for what is right.
This story showcases the very best of Dr. Seuss, from the moving message to the charming rhymes and imaginative illustrations. No bookshelf is complete without Horton and the Whos!
Do you see what I mean? . . . They've proved they ARE persons, no matter how small. And their whole world was saved by the Smallest of All!

It has violence and inappropriate language. It talks about calling someone "dumb" with some showing violence action such hitting. I Totally don't approve of this book for young children. What a wasted money. I don't recommend this book for young children.
This holds true for all the Dr Seuss books that are downloaded to my Kindle.
All the Dr Seuss books I have are downloaded to my Kindle.
Any suggestions on how to enlarge the print to be easily readable on my Kindle?
The rest of the story about Horton protecting The Who’s and the interactions are good though, and it’s one of the longer Dr Seuss books I’ve seen. We tend to just “censor” the parts where it talks about roping / caging / beating Horton.

It ties in with some of the parables taught.
Good quality book at a fair price.
We had a difficulty in obtaining from the local chain stores and appreciate the availability offered on-line.
