One of the most beloved authors of children’s books is Dr. Seuss. Dr. Seuss has written many infamous children’s classics, one of which is Horton Hears A Who. In 2008, this lovely children’s story was recreated through film. Horton Hears A Who was released as a delightful animated comedy that brought to life many classic characters from the Dr. Seuss story and was loved by kids of all ages.
Horton is a sweet and lovable elephant that lives in the Jungle of Nool. He knows a lot about the outdoors and is the jungle’s resident nature teacher. One day, serendipitously, a speck of dust falls off a flower and passes directly by Horton. As the dust speck floats by, Horton thinks he hears something. Horton realizes that an entire village of Who’s is living inside this tiny dust speck! Horton realizes that Whoville will be destroyed if he doesn’t find a safer harbor for the dust speck to rest. Horton decides to take a somewhat perilous journey to the top of Mt. Nool, which is the safest place in the entire jungle.
Your child will be utterly delighted to dress up as the gentle and brave Horton for Halloween or even a bigger version of a microscopic Who from Whoville. One of the most treasured stories created by Dr. Seuss can be relived through creative dress up, for Halloween or any day. Do you hear a Who, too?
