How the Grinch Stole Christmas synopsis of the classic christmas book. Dr. Seuss creates a fictional town of Who-ville. He uses the kids' book to teach the true meaning of Christmas. His whimsical animals and rhyming verse enhance the infant(baby), toddler, preschool and elementary kid, tween and teen story book.
Every Christmas the citizens of Who-ville exchange presents, eat a feast and sing Christmas carols. This happens Christmas after Christmas to the joy of the townspeople. There is one person who doesn’t feel the Christmas joy. He is the Grinch. The Grinch lives in a cave on Mt. Crumpit. The dog, Max, is his only friend.
Mean Grinch does not like Christmas. Evil Grinch wants to destroy Christmas. On Christmas Eve, he slips into Who-ville and steals every Christmas related item. Aha! Mr. Grinch is very wrong about the meaning of Christmas. A lack of material goods does not diminish the beauty and meaning of the season. The adults and kids of Who-ville hold hands in the town square and sing Christmas carols. Everyone is filled with Christmas joy and sing songs to the Heavens.
Grinch and kids learn Christmas is not about material processions, but the spirit of the Holiday season, the birth of Christ. No matter what one has, it is easy to celebrate His birth. The truth causes love to grow in the Grinch’s heart. He returns everything to Who-ville and accepts their invitation to stay for dinner.
Dr. Seuss wants children to know the true meaning of Christmas. Christmas is not the number of gifts under the Christmas tree. It is not, the bounty on the dining room table. It is the friendship and love for all. Share How the Grinch Stole Christmas with kids. Discuss the story book’s message. It has been a popular Christmas book since written by Dr. Seuss in 1957. Infants, toddlers and early elementary children love the rhyming verse and the whimsical animals. Children can independently read the picture book at the age of seven.
