Who’s at Rawlings Library

Horton Hears a Who!.jpg

Attention lovers of movies and Dr. Seuss.

Kids can learn from an elephant that “A person’s a person, no matter how small”.

The movie version of Horton Hears a Who! will be shown at Rawlings Library on Saturday, March 7th. The movie will begin at 2pm and end at 4pm.

A major theme of this movie centers around learning about universal values existing in vastly different places and people, as shown by the quote “A person’s a person, no matter how small”. This idea is found on many levels: Horton hearing a world in a speck, the Mayor’s relationship with his son, and Jane Kangaroo learning the truth about Horton’s beliefs.

Be sure to talk about these ideas with your child or children!

As with any exercise, if a certain movement or position hurts, try to modify the workout to avoid the aggravating activities. Also, anytime you’re training with resistance, remember that proper technique is important. Don’t get so caught up in your dancing that you forget proper form. — Mayo Clinic
