Forgotten Friday: Horton Hatches the Egg by Dr. Seuss

This meme is about books that have been pushed aside while others have gone viral and made into movies. It can be old books, new books, any book that never got its (or enough) time  in the spot light.

I was watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas last night (the cartoon version, not the Jim Carey version) and it got me thinking about the other Dr. Seuss books that I loved. Although, Horton Hears a Who is more famous because of its movie, my favorite is still Horton Hatches the Egg. I think it's such a beautiful story and speaks out about absentee parenting. Admittedly as a child, I was so confused as to why the tree underneath Horton doesn't snap or how he didn't crush the egg but it's Dr. Seuss so anything can happen.

I hope you all are having a Happy Holiday season so far!
