Transcript of Dr. Seuss' "Horton Hears a Who"

Children: Dr. Seuss made a very interesting story for kids so that when they listen to it they think someone is in trouble and needs help. And when someone needs help you should help them no matter how small they are. Dr. Seuss' "Horton Hears a Who" By: Jalynne Hinrichs, Kara Martin,
and Brandy Lathrop Adults:
We think that Dr. Seuss put a light twist on people attempting to help the Jewish people during WWII and that other people thought they were crazy for trying to help them. When in all reality the people helping the Jewish people were thinking like Horton when he said "A persons a person no matter how small Authors Purpose We believe that Mr. Geisel's purpose for writing "Horton Hears a Who" was to put a light feeling or some may call it a subliminal thought of why discrimination is bad and why you should not discriminate. What was Going on? Why Did it Become
Popular? We assume that "Horton Hears a Who" became popular because it was Dr. Seuss who wrote it and because it was relating to something that was big in the society at the time We believe that WWII was ending right around the time that Dr. Seuss was writing "Horton Hears a Who" Who Was the Intended Audience? Dr. Seuss usually writes for children Characteristics of a poem the book contains Rhythm
Imagery Rhyme
aabbccdd Literary Devices in the book Hyperbole
Personification Type of Poem Horton Hears a Who is a narrative poem because it has characters, setting and plot Sound Devices within the book Alliteration
Assonance What we learned We learned that Dr. Seuss has deeper meaning to most of his stories than most us thought growing up and even now we were forced to look at a story we have always thought as an innocent book as something deeper and darker Exposition Horton discovers that there is a little voice coming from a speck on a clover while he is relaxing in the water Rising action word spreads of Horton's finding a and a kangaroo insists that there are no tiny people on the spec but Horton still defends them Climax After the attempts to separate the clover from Horton failed, the kangaroo organizes a gang to cage Horton and dispose of the clover by dropping in boiling water Falling Action In order to save the Whos Horton tells them that everyone needs to yell and make as much noise as possible so everyone else can hear them and knows they exist Resolution The noise being made wasn't enough so the mayor went and for JoJo who wasn't making any noise and convinced him to yell and when he made a big "Yolp" everybody else heard the Whos on the speck and believed Horton Conflicts in the Story The conflicts we found in "Horton Hears a Who were Man Vs. Man in the fight between Horton and Kangaroo and Man Vs. Society because all of society thought Horton was wrong when he was defending the Whos Type of Characterizations in "Horton Hears a Who Static
Dynamic Antagonist The Kangaroo is the antagonist Protagonist Horton is the Protagonist Tone Childish with deeper meanings Mood Younger, again, like we were still in kindergarten having story time on rugs Horton hears a Who is considered a short story because it has few characters and only one plot with no subplots. None of the characters are considered round because there is not enough time to tell a lot about them Have any Literary devices been used? Yes.
Metaphors The End!!!!
