Dr Sus’s Imposter Museum

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This amazing, lively introduction to art, art history, and museums is an utter delight. By focusing on one art subject -- horses -- kids will see how different interpretations can be, depending on the style and technique of the artist. Dr. Suess's Horse Museum captures the zany spirit of Dr. Seuss' books and the cartoon style of his characters, but illustrator Andrew Joyner doesn't try to replicate Seuss' drawing style -- except when a beloved Seuss character steps into a scene, like the Cat in the Hat, Horton the elephant, or a fish popping out of a teapot. Kids will have fun spotting those beloved characters.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
