Dr. Seuss’ classic of a jungle elephant named Horton teaches us what it means to be a true friend. Hearing a faint cry for help from a floating speck of dust, Horton finds a tiny planet of Whos living there. Though he can’t see them, he hears them for sure – and puts his safety on the line for the microscopic inhabitants.
Thanks to Dr. Who-Vee and Horton, Whoville is saved and a lasting friendship is created. Dr. Seuss and animation giant Chuck Jones reteamed after How the Grinch Stole Christmas on this enchanting Peabody Award winner with a message bridging generations: “A person is a person, no matter how small.” Through its characters, charming songs and tongue-twisting verses, Horton looms large as a family-viewing treasure.
