I have an appreciation for Dr.Seuss and grateful to still be able to check out books that in our understanding culturally speaking are deemed inappropriate. It has created a good opportunity to speak to my children about why it is offensive and how people were treated and viewed in past years and how some still treat people today. There are two issues specifically that really stuck out in this book one to do with Asian characteristics and the other with caricatures of African people’s. Be alert to that and it can be a learning opportunity.
