After very insightful and thorough examination of the Dr. Seuss books, Dr. Einhorn offers her brilliant interpretations of why we all love his books. Not only very intelligent, this book is highly entertaining, simultaneously serious and humorous, as it specifically illustrates how Seuss combined entertainment with spiritual lessons. Reputed to transform children's story time forever from the boring Dick and Jane series to a land of wild imagination, Dr. Seuss's books encourage children to think for themselves. Einhorn wisely explains how his books nurture respect, responsibility, daring, bravery, paying attention, living in the present, seeing the universe as something continually changing and interconnected.  As Seuss's books encourage children to play, have fun, and laugh, so will you feel joy as you read this book.
