“I meant what I said, and I said what I meant. . . .
An elephant’s faithful, one hundred per cent!”

Told with Dr. Seuss’s signature rhymes and trademark illustrations, this is a tale that will be enjoyed over and over, by reader and listener alike.

Virtue Earns a Reward! 23 février 2001
Par Donald Mitchell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book clearly deserves more than five stars!
Horton Hatches the Egg is one of my very favorite children's books. The story opens with Mayzie, a lazy bird, sitting on her nest hatching an egg. She's terribly bored and tired and wants a break. She persuades Horton, the elephant, to take over for her. This is a good choice on her part because, "An elephant's faithful -- one hundred percent!"
So Horton props up the tree so it can take his weight, climbs up onto the nest, and ever so gently . . . sits on the egg.
Mayzie decides a little vacation in Palm Beach will be in order. Once there, she says . . . "why bother?" and abandons her egg.
What Horton didn't know is that this egg needed 51 more weeks of hatching! But, never mind. "He said what he meant and he meant what he said." He sat on that egg, no matter what.
Through a long series of misadventures, Mayzie and Horton are reunited just as the egg hatches. Mayzie wants her egg back, and Horton doesn't agree. Then the big surprise happens and Horton gets his reward!
Teaching children patience and persistence . . . well, that takes a lot of patience and persistence. Horton Hatches the Egg is a way to provide a small fictional example when setbacks and delays occur. My youngsters didn't understand Thomas Edison's comment about genius being 99 percent perspiration until they were well past their Dr. Seuss days. I like to think that their hard-working adult selves (for the three who are adults) were formed in part by Horton's example in this book.
This book contains many valuable lessons to encourage such as: keeping your word; being honest; looking out for those in need; sticking through to the end; facing your fears; and many others. It's a remarkable thing to realize also how well the ridiculous image of an unhappy elephant sitting on a nest is a bare tree can create all of those good notions. Way to go, Dr. Seuss!

Enchanting and fun for all 15 novembre 1999

Horton Hatches the Egg is a wonderful tale for young and old alike. I read it as a child and now read it to my own children. I was the library coordinator for my child's first grade class and was having a very difficult time controling twenty two unruly kids. Horton to the rescue. The kids loved the tale of the faithful elephant shouting out each and every time that this elephant was faithful one hundred percent. You will love this book one hundred percent !

One of the best of the Seuss books in my opinion 12 janvier 2006
Par A. Woodley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Horton Hatches the egg was one of my favourite books when I was a child and it is lovely to be able to read it to my children and it has become one of their favourite too. I certainly prefer this one to many of the Seuss books available (I have never been a huge fan of Cat in the hat or Green Eggs and Ham) This one has a hugely appealing story.

Mayzie is a lazy bird and doesn't enjoy just sitting on her egg, she needs a holiday from sitting around doing nothing on the egg (a lovely ironic touch for adults here, I think this is one of the reasons it is so appealing!) So she convinces Horton the Elephant who is passing by to sit on her egg for her. She doesn't really care that he is 'immense' she persuades him that he will be able to do it.

So Horton props up the nest and sits on it - all through the day and night, through storms, through winter ice, through teasing from his friends because "an elephants faithful, 100%"

Then one day some hunters come along, but instead of shooting hiim they capture him on the nest and drag him over the hills and onto a boat (where an elephant is seasick, 100%) and back to New York to sell him to the circus.

There he sits on the egg being dragged around the country until one day they go to florida where Mayzie the lazy bird has been lying around. She has been there a year and has decided never to go back to her nest. When she sees the circus in town she flies in and sees Horton on her egg, just as it hatches. Now Mayzie gets angry and claims that it is HER egg.

But the egg hatches with a new type of creature, an elephant bird. It is purely Horton's creation and the circus and the people send him back home where no doubt he will live a long and happy life with his little bird/baby

It is a nice book with a great message of working hard for reward despite the slings and arrows around you. It has a wonderful rhyme and good catch phrases which kids can learn easily to help with early readers

the illustrations are simply coloured in black green and red but enormously effective - Dr Seuss was an extraordinary illustrator!

Overall one of our favourite - and highly recommended

Excellant Lesson to be learned 19 mars 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

This playful and imaginative book is about an elephant that comes across a bird that is extremely stressed and does not wish to sit on her egg anymore. So Horton decides to sit on the egg so the bird can take a break. Well the bird ends up taking a tropical vacation and doesn't want to return. Well Horton very patiently sat on the egg through sleet and rain and the most horrible conditions. Well some people decide that this is a hilarious site and feel that he should be on display for all to see. So the men dig up the tree in which Horton is patiently perched and is taken down south. When Horton and the tree reach the south the mother bird finds Horton just as his egg starts to hatch and she demands it back. Horton is very displeased and states that he did all the work and deserves the egg. Well just as that was said out of the egg jumps an Elephant bird, which is a trophy for all Horton's hard work.
Dr. Seuss yet again did a wonderful job with rhymes and engaging children to read. I love the moral that was being put into place that if you work hard and stay focused then it will all pay off and you will be rewarded in the end.
This is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss book if not my favorite. I have always been a fan of his ability to draw children in and engage them in reading. Also the rhymes and silly words are great for young readers. Also what better then to have a moral tied along with it?

Horton Hatches Fun for All 11 mai 2001
Par "toonsis007" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Dr. Suess is the author of numerous children’s books, for years his titles have been favorites for children. Horton Hatches the Egg is no different. Dr. Suess combines wonderful pictures with a clever plot that make this story enjoyable for readers of all ages. The characters are well developed and very appealing to the audience. Horton, the elephant, is an amusing character that commands respect. Another benefit to this fun story is the lesson it teaches about human nature. This review will examine Horton Hatches the Egg in a critical light, emphasizing the characteristics that make it a high-quality children’s book. The story begins as Mayzie the lazy bird is complaining about sitting on her egg all of time; she is tired and wants a break. Mayzie spots Horton, the elephant, walking through the jungle that she dupes into sitting on her egg for a short time. Mayzie never returns, leaving poor Horton to take care of the egg. The story continues as Horton stays with the egg through months of mishaps and tribulations. Horton and Mayzie meet at the end, through coincidence, and Horton is eventually rewarded for his efforts. The setting of this tale in begins in the jungle. There are smooth transitions from one scene to another. Also, the pictures describing the scene are not too distracting to the reader, but they help to paint a picture in the reader’s mind of where the story might actually be taking place. There is no time period given for this story, which makes the story relevant in today’s society. The setting also contains events and places that young readers might have had some experience with, and those who have never been to a circus or a jungle would still be interested in the story. The setting also helps to create a happy and light mood, which is important in children’s literature (Norton, 1999). The strong development of the characters makes this story very appealing. From the beginning, the lazy Mayzie bird wishes to leave her egg, she is tired of sitting on it. The Mayzie bird remains inert the entire story, readers will also note that the she does not benefit from being this way. Horton, the elephant, is a strong character that remains committed to his promise. Horton is a cute character that children would be attracted to; he is also very humorous. The story follows Horton from beginning to end, which allows young readers to develop a relationship with him, as they laugh and learn from him. The plot is quick paced and full of humor, which makes it very appealing to children. Horton is constantly doing silly things. The wording and language of this story make it flow and every enjoyable as well. The story is interesting and keeps the attention of the readers. The plot is never dull and inspires children to think about other events in life. Another aspect children’s literature that is substantial is involving children with the theme. Often times themes are not that easy to pick out of stories, but if children can identify themes they feel even more connected to the story (Norton, 1999). The theme of this story teaches children about life, working hard and keeping promises benefits all those involved. Overall, this story was well written with humor and realistic characters. The rhyming words would also appeal to children. I must admit that I found the story to be fun and delightful. At certain points I felt bad for the elephant. Horton is a well-developed character that is very appealing to children. Horton Hatches the Egg is a book that children will love and should definitely read.
