Yertle The Turtle Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
In this story my favorite character is turtle Mack. I loved when he says “right here at the bottom, we too, shall have rights” because it represents democracy and the rights all living beings should have. I loved that Mack always spoke up for all of the other turtles and himself, even though he obeyed he at least had the voice that many need in times of injustice. A lesson that kids might have gotten from the book is that nobody is better than anybody else and Yertle the turtle was not a nice turtle. While, adults might look at it a little bit deeper and understand that Yertle the turtle represents tyranny. Kids could not see the representation of tyranny because they have not learned that yet, they are still innocents. I liked this book
