Horton's a hit!

I am so in love with the fact that my kids love Dr. Seuss books. Right now, their favorites are One Fish, Two Fish and The Foot Book, but my older daughter is starting to warm up to the longer stories. I hope that some of the social commentary is sinking in. The Lorax teaches us to be kind to the Earth, Yertle the Turtle teaches us that no one should have too much power, and Horton Hears a Who, of course, tells us that a person's a person, no matter how small. An important message for kids, don't you think?

So I'm thrilled that Horton has made it to the big screen and really wanted to see it this weekend. I wasn't alone -- the film opened to a hefty $45.1 debut. With big screen names like Jim Carrey and Steve Carell, it was bound to be popular, but I've also read that it's a perfectly lovely film that really stays true to the the original story. I hope so.

I didn't get to see it this weekend, hopefully next. Did any of you watch it? What did you think?
