Sign up for one of Dr. Seuss’s most giving characters in the classic picture book Thidwick the Big-Hearted Moose. Poor Thidwick’s generosity proves the adage that no good deed goes unpunished, and soon everyone, from a tiny Bingle Bug to an enormous bear, is profiting from our antlered hero. With Seuss’s rhyming text and endearing illustrations, this beloved story about a kindhearted moose and the bullies that make a home on his horns is a great way to introduce children to the invaluable concept of self-respect.
This classic Seuss title stars a happy-taking a look quadruped from the shores of Lake Winna-Bango who has the most amazing antlers and the kindest disposition. Alas! Everyone, but everyone, takes benefit of his generosity, and before long he has three-quarters of the animal kingdom nesting in the convenient perches atop his head. (“They asked in a fox, who jumped in from the trees, / They asked in some mice and they asked in some fleas.”) You might think any person would take pity, but no person seems to like an oddball, and all Thidwick gets for his trouble is complaints and contempt. Unable to cross the lake when winter threatens, he looks all set to starve–and then things get even worse. He’s saved from certain death just in time, swims the lake, and joins the herd again. One reason this Seuss is so good: it has a moral, but the moral is not pressed too far and the exuberant linguistic fun is not subservient to it. (Ages 4 to 8) –Richard Farr
