I'm honestly not sure I've ever read this book before today! I've seen the cartoon movie and avoided the Jim Carey version like the plague, but this may have been my first interaction with the actual book. It's so cute! Definitely one I will want to own when I have kids.

I love this book and have since I was a child. Classic story with a good moral to teach children, as well as adults. Dr. Seuss is one of the best authors of all time.

A great book with a great moral for children. Too bad its transformations onto the big screen couldn't conjure the true magic of Suess

A witty, brilliant, timeless classic for children and adults about the true meaning of Christmas and the insignificance of holiday materialism.

Ahh, such a classic children’s story. I have loved this book along with the original movie since I was a young child. The story is by Dr. Seuss and states how a person, The Grinch, has been outcast from society and dislikes cheer and goodwill. The Grinch finally decides to stop Christmas, taking away all of the Christmas that was down in Whoville. However, when the people down in Whoville wake up, even though all of their Christmas food and presents were gone they were still happy because Christmas is not about all of the “things” it is about the people you spend time with, cheer and goodwill. The Grinch realizes this just as all of the “things” were about to fall down Mount Crumpit. His heart grows with the love from Whoville and stops the sleigh from falling off the mountain and brings everything back to the town and everyone as on celebrates Christmas with the Grinch.
