    A really good titular story COWABUNGA, DR SEUSS And the turtles, of course all turtles are free. As turtles and, maybe, all creatures should be, It s said that Yertle the Turtle exemplifies Hitler, and while I have no doubt of that,I think that he could be King Nimrod from Tower of Babel s story as well, but again,I think that Yertle the Turtle exemplifies all tyrants, cruel to their own people and fools, wanting to be higher than anybody else.Yertle the Turtle was king of all that he can see, but that wasn t enough for him, and started an absurd tower made with their fellow turtles, not caring if they weren t able to sustain such kind of pointless endeavor.An important lesson Tyrants keep their power as long as their people remain silent.

    I had read many Dr Seuss books over the years, since I am a huge fan of his work Now, I had finally come back to one of my childhood favorite stories of all time, Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories and I still enjoy it to this very day There are a total of three stories in this book which includes Yertle the Turtle, Gertrude McFuzz and The Big Brag Yertle the Turtle In this tale, Yertle the King of all the Turtles, wanted to have a throne where he could see everything from high above So he decided to have the rest of the turtles climb up on each other so he could sit on them to make a throne that would reach up high into the sky But once Yertle the Turtle became too unbearable, will the other turtles defy him in the end Gertrude McFuzz In this tale, a young bird named Gertrude McFuzz wanted to have a beautiful tail like Lolla Lee Lou So, she decided to visit her uncle Dake and he tells her that in order to grow a beautiful tail like Lolla Lee Lou, she has to eat a pill that grows on the pill berry vine on the top of the hill But, will Gertrude go too far once she decides to eat all of the pills on the pill berry vine The Big Brag In this story, a rabbit and a bear were both arguing amongst themselves about who is the best animal in the world and they try to outdo each other with their sense But when a worm comes by, will he set both the rabbit and the bear straight Dr Seuss has once again created a truly brilliant and engaging book where each story details the consequences of letting too much pride cloud your good judgment I enjoyed all of the stories in this book as each story shows a different take on characters becoming too self absorbed into themselves in certain situations, such as Yertle the Turtle showing the consequences of letting the power go to your head, Gertrude McFuzz which shows that you should just be yourself and The Big Brag which shows that there are better things to do than just bragging Probably the story I enjoyed the most was Yertle the Turtle since I loved the solution to the problem of Yertle making all the other turtles stand on each other to build a throne that can reach the sky it is a pretty funny solution Dr Seuss illustrations are as usual creative and humorous to look at as it is mainly done in black and white colorings with green and blue being the only other colors in this book, which gives the illustrations a distinctive feel Overall, Yertle the Turtle and Other Stories is a truly fantastic collection of stories that can be used to teach children about the importance of being humble in your actions and to not become too self absorbed in yourself I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book and the format would be easy for smaller children to understand.Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog

    This was my favorite book when I was a child I read it over and over again, memorizing every line, and taking in every lesson about vanity that Dr Seuss was teaching As an adult I found a whole new appreciation for the book, as I learned that the character of Yertle was based on Adolph Hitler Seuss used Yertle to demonstrate the rise of fascism in Europe, and show is distaste for it In the final lines of the story Seuss s true intent comes out as he proclaims that all turtles and every creature should be free That s quite a bit of political theory for a children s book, don t you think The other two stories have similar themes, mocking competitions of vanity and jealousy Seuss was no stranger to morals and references to real world issues The former political cartoonist took on the Cold War in The Butter Battle Book, Richard Nixon in Marvin K Mooney Will You Please Go Now , and the environment in The Lorax In my opinion Yertle is his best work, and one that I hope lives on with future generations I spent all this space on Yertle the Turtle and I have yet to mention the Turtles all the way down theory of astronomy Well, that s not really in here, but it sure would be cool if it was.

    This one probably requires a five year old to fully grasp the lessons about pride that are inherent in the mile high Yurtle, the far sighted worm and that silly long tailed bird But it is still fun to read and one day will probably help me to explain a lesson

    Huzzah Huzzah Huzzah I love it when Dr Seuss gets preachy.Now, I know my fair share of Dr Seuss books, but for some reason I d never heard of Yertle the Turtle until a colleague of mine said I should read it when I teach governments next year.To that colleague thanks a lot I just might do that In fact, I might do that this year as a little review.Yertle is the absolute monarch defined It s his power becoming absolute and corrupting It s his greed It s his fall from the top.He can be happy that the proletariat didn t send him to the guillotine Of course, I m not sure that that particular method would work for turtles since they would just pull their head back into their shell.Firing squad Sorry Yertle If it were up to me, I d have you sent toThe Hague.The other stories were fun as well Vanity and boastfulness not admirable characteristics according to Mr Geisel.

    Great stories by Dr Seuss that are relevant to adults as well as children The concepts of not making yourself better at the expense of others and the idea that you are not necessarily better than someone else or that you should be happy with who you are are fundamental lessons everyone should take to heart.Overall, it s an engaging read that really has adult themes while still being appropriate for children Love, love, love Dr Seuss We really enjoyed reading this book together It s not our girls favorite of his stories, but it is one of mine.This book was featured as one of the selections for the March 2015 Dr Seuss reads for the Picture Book Club in the Children s Books Group here at Goodreads.

    This is a children s book I repeat, a children s book Again, It Is A Children s book However, Dr Seuss embodies Adolf Hitler s invasion of Europe using a turtle and a pond I KNOW BRILLIANT T_TAnd it s poetic too Here s a part of an article from Wikipedia about the book Seuss has stated that the titular character Yertle represented Adolf Hitler, with Yertle s despotic rule of the pond and takeover of the surrounding area parallel to Hitler s regime in Germanyand invasion of various parts of Europe This is a YouTube link for the story with narration you enjoy it as much as I did.
