Book #37 “The Sneetches” by Dr. Seuss
Some Sneetches have stars on their bellies while others don’t. The Sneetches with stars feel superior and look down on the ones without. One day, an entrepreneur named Sylvester McMonkey McBean rolls into town with his amazing contraptions. He charges the Plain-Belly Sneetches a small fee to add a star on their belly. Soon everyone had stars on their bellies. Unhappy about this, the original Star-Belly Sneetches turn to McBean. He charges them even more money to remove their stars. This vicious cycle repeats many times until everyone’s money is given to McBean who promptly rolls out of town. Leave it to master story-teller Dr. Seuss to weave a fantastic story that deals with prejudice and racism while doing so in stylish rhymes and his signature artwork.
