Dr. Seuss’s The Sneetches and Other Stories meets The Wall in the Middle of the Book in this pitch perfect, rhyming story about breaking down barriers and embracing our differences.
An angry old Won’t and a cheerless young Will
lived next to each other, on top of a hill.
They squabbled and quarrelled, did nothing but fight.
If one said, "It’s day," said the other, "It’s night."
"Your dog wrecked my roses!" "Your trees are too tall!"
"There’s one way to end this:
WE’RE BUILDING A WALL!"
The Wills and the Won’ts can’t seem to agree on anything, so they build a wall to keep the other out. Until a hopeful young May realizes that perhaps they can find some common ground, if only they work together.
A fantastically timely and timeless read-aloud with the bouncing rhyme of Dr. Seuss and a message that will resonate with readers of all ages: Tolerance and togetherness put us all on the same side.
