Vote for the 5 best Dr. Seuss books

Okay, let me be honest. There are no "5 best" Dr. Seuss books. Theodor Seuss Geisel published 44 children's books and each one is a marvel in its own way. However, I do have my own personal "5 best list," just as I'm sure that you have yours. Please help me to celebrate Dr. Seuss's birthday (he was born on March 2, 1904) by listing your own. In the meantime, here are mine.

1. Horton Hears a Who

of

Has there ever been a better hero than Horton, the kindly elephant whose huge ears allow him to detect a cry of help from the tiny Who-ville? No matter how cruel and uncomprehending the other animals in the Jungle of Nool may be, Horton will not allow his tiny new friends to be dropped into boiling Beezelnut Oil. I hope that kindergarten teachers everywhere still use Horton's story as a teachable moment. In fact, it wouldn't hurt any of us to be reminded that "a person’s a person, no matter how small."
