Description

Product Description

The Butter Battle Book, Dr. Seuss''s classic cautionary tale, introduces readers to the important lesson of respecting differences. The Yooks and Zooks share a love of buttered bread, but animosity brews between the two groups because they prefer to enjoy the tasty treat differently. The timeless and topical rhyming text is an ideal way to teach young children about the issues of tolerance and respect. Whether in the home or in the classroom, The Butter Battle Book is a must-have for readers of all ages.

Amazon.com Review

A cautionary Cold War tale (first told by Dr. Seuss back in 1984), The Butter Battle Book still has a lot to teach about intolerance and how tit-for-tat violence can quickly get out of hand. Explaining the very serious differences between the Zooks and the Yooks, a Zook grandpa tells his grandchild the unspeakable truth: "It''s high time that you knew of the terribly horrible thing that Zooks do. In every Zook house and every Zook town every Zook eats his bread with the butter side down!" He then recalls his days with the Zook-Watching Border Patrol, as he gave any Zook who dared come close "a twitch with my tough-tufted prickley Snick-Berry Switch." But when the Zooks fought back, the switches gave way to Triple-Sling Jiggers, then Jigger-Rock Snatchems--even a Kick-a-Poo Kid that was "loaded with powerful Poo-a-Doo Powder and ants'' eggs and bees'' legs and dried-fried clam chowder."

With lots of fun and more-than-fair digs at the runaway spending and one-upmanship of U.S.-Soviet days, The Butter Battle Book makes a chuckle-filled read whether you''re old enough to get the historical references or not. (And with all the Bitsy Big-Boy Boomeroos still in service, this book''s message is far from obsolete.) (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes

Review

"Dr. Seuss chronicles the feud between the Yooks and the Zooks from slingshots through sophisticated weaponry, until each side has the capacity to destroy the world. The language amuses, the drawings are zesty and humorous, and the demand for this book will be large."-- School Library Journal.

"Provocative, packs an allegorical punch. The parade of increasingly elaborate (and ridiculous) armaments makes a telling point."-- Booklist.

We have a 3 month old at home and I wanted something a little bit more enjoyable (for me) to read. I had never heard of this Dr. Seuss book but it''s now one of my favorites. It seems funny to write this in the review of a book for little kids, but it is a great allegory to the cold war and the subsequent arms race that followed. It teaches some valuable lessons that we are all effectively the same with slight differences and questions why we often resort to violence as our first means of dealing with a problem. In the hate filled climate that our current president has fostered here in the US, this is a great reminder that we''re all the same, we just butter our bread a little different than our neighbor which is OK!

After ordering it, the book arrived quickly and in perfect condition. I purchased it in honor of Dr. Seuss'' birthday, hoping to find something new and different for my grandchildren. I had not read or even heard of The Butter Battle Book until coming across it while searching for Dr. Seuss books on Amazon. Almost everything written about it indicated a great find! I do not agree. It is, in fact, typical Seuss with its wonderful rhyming cadence and lots of silliness along the way. But it does not provide any sort of lesson for kids--aside from, perhaps, the lesson that being stubborn allows you to not lose. Nor does it allow you to win. Nobody wins. Sad. I now understand why I had never heard of this book. There are many better books to choose from that manage to convey the benefits and rewards of open-mindedness and tolerance of differences.

This is hands down my favorite Dr. Seuss book. I raved about it so much to my students that when one of my students graduated he gave me a copy. I have since given this book to all the little kids in my life.

The drawings are topnotch and the whimsical names for things are classic Dr. Seuss. But that isn''t why it is my favorite book. The Butter Battle Book manages to distill the ridiculousness of the Cold War and mutually assured destruction into terms a child could understand. Perhaps if more adults read this book back in the day it wouldn''t have taken until the 90''s for the Cold War to end.

On our first read through, we got to the end of the book and it just sort of stopped. I wondered if I got a defective copy. Then we found ourselves talking about what might have happened if the story continued, and how it reminded us of other stories from history. Somewhat unsatisfying as a "story" but an excellent discussion starter. Perfect as a reminder that everybody is different and fighting over our differences is silly.

Dr. Seuss takes one of the most historic eras of the twentieth century and transforms it into one of life''s lessons that may appeal to young and old. The Butter Battle Book was first published in 1984 during the latter part of the Cold War of the mid 1980s. The story involves two communities, the Yooks and the Zooks, and what can they possibly be in conflict with? The right and wrong of spreading butter on a piece of bread, the Yooks argue that butter should be spread on top of the bread while the Zooks believe it should be spread on the bottom side of the bread. What arises after each cannot come to a consensus?

The entire premise of the story involves building new inventive concoctions to deter the opposing group. As all of this is going on within each side, the Yooks and the Zooks simply cannot see an end to the conflict. Instead, they continue to build and build bigger walls and massive machinery with the attempt that one will give up. However, neither side gives in. And as one reads the story, one of the resolutions that neither side even attempted, a peaceful means of negotiation through communication and speaking with each side rather than producing more unnecessary inventions that simply have not worked. So where does the story end? Where it began.

The Butter Battle Book is one of Dr. Seuss''s classic stories that falls within the same vein as other controversial storylines that speaks to the masses and offers a lesson, The Lorax. This story also leaves much room for further discussion almost twenty years after it was written as well as within the present day.

One of my childhood favorites that remains in my collection of books. Purchased an additional copy for my nephew’s birthday. The story line and underlying message is powerful but depicted perfectly for a young developing mind. The illustrations give the eyes something comforting to see along with a desire to scan each section to review how Seuss uses both visual and text to connect to his audience.

Oh, how can you not love a good Seuss? If you liked Sneetches or Yertle, this will be up your alley. Interesting kind of social commentary, but with the awesome inventiveness of Seuss. It''s a little violent- talking about blowing each other up and stuff... it is a book about battle, after all. But I think it''s valuable. It''s a pretty long story for Seuss. Maybe stick to others for preschool aged children based on reference to violence and length, but you''ll know what''s right for your family. And if you are just looking for another Seuss to add to your collection? Do it.

Amazon.com Review

A cautionary Cold War tale (first told by Dr. Seuss back in 1984), The Butter Battle Book still has a lot to teach about intolerance and how tit-for-tat violence can quickly get out of hand. Explaining the very serious differences between the Zooks and the Yooks, a Zook grandpa tells his grandchild the unspeakable truth: "It''s high time that you knew of the terribly horrible thing that Zooks do. In every Zook house and every Zook town every Zook eats his bread with the butter side down!" He then recalls his days with the Zook-Watching Border Patrol, as he gave any Zook who dared come close "a twitch with my tough-tufted prickley Snick-Berry Switch." But when the Zooks fought back, the switches gave way to Triple-Sling Jiggers, then Jigger-Rock Snatchems--even a Kick-a-Poo Kid that was "loaded with powerful Poo-a-Doo Powder and ants'' eggs and bees'' legs and dried-fried clam chowder."

With lots of fun and more-than-fair digs at the runaway spending and one-upmanship of U.S.-Soviet days, The Butter Battle Book makes a chuckle-filled read whether you''re old enough to get the historical references or not. (And with all the Bitsy Big-Boy Boomeroos still in service, this book''s message is far from obsolete.) (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes
