Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: I could talk a bit about Dr. Seuss' mastery of verbal wordplay, or how he awakens the kid in all of us, but let's face it: he's just plain fun. And that has never been truer than when he is read here by Dustin Hoffman. With two collections of celebrity Seuss reads available, we had plenty of great choices, but Hoffman's endearingly persistent Horton earned him our vote. Give a listen and try not to smile. —Ed Walloga

    One could say my tastes in books are nonsequators because I have no favorite author or genre. I hold over 300 books in my audible library

    "I Hear A Who"

    I loved listening to this book. I never knew that Dustin Hoffman could do so many different voices. This along with the music to set the tone, should be very entertaining for young girls and boys. Definetly listen to this version before watching the movie. I LOVED IT!
