Dr. Seuss authored so many childrens books that occasionally you have to take stock so that you can figure out which books you’ve read, and which ones you haven’t. There are, however, a few books written by this famous author that instantly come to mind when you say the name Dr. Seuss, and one of those books is the Christmas tale of How the Grinch Stole Christmas!.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is the story of a Grinch, who is, as the name sounds, very Grinchy. He does Grinchy things and thinks Grinchy thoughts, and the thing that he hates most of all is Christmas. The Who’s down in Whoville (who tend to pop up in a number of Seuss books), however, love Christmas, and one year the Grinch decides that he’s going to ruin all of the Who’s fun by destroying their Christmas once and for all.
As with every Dr. Seuss tale, there is a moral to the story, and this one is all about how being Grinchy isn’t always the best thing, and about how doing great things can make you feel great. In How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, things are changed around thanks to little Sally Lou Who, the sweetest Who of all, who teaches the Grinch that Christmas isn’t about packages and presents, but rather is about “something more”. This timeless Christmas tale is a staple in every household, including those that don’t have children, for it’s heartwarming story and it’s delightful illustrations.
