Brilliant, playful and engaging, the charmingly simple story and expressive illustrations of Horton Hears a Who!
have proven captivating to young readers for years. No matter how many times it's read, once begun anew, the desire to see what happens next and how it all turns out is overwhelming. For this reason, Horton Entend un Zou!
is the perfect tool for children learning to read French at a young age.
Thanks to the author's use of simple sentences and basic vocabulary, Horton Entend un Zou! makes learning French easy as it tells the story of Dr. Seuss' beloved elephant and his efforts to convince kangaroos, monkeys and a black-bottomed bird that a speck of dust is home to the Whos of Whoville.
The story reaches a climax perfectly suited for Francophiles when the smallest Who in Whoville climbs to the top of the Eiffelberg Tower and shouts "Yopp" just loud enough that the other animals finally hear the Whos and at last believe Horton.
