This lesser-known work by Theodor S. Geisel is an incredible, thought-provoking children's book and the perfect introduction to socially-engaged fiction for kids. Written during the Cold War, THE BUTTER BATTLE BOOK is an anti-war parable about an arms race between two countries that can't agree over how to properly butter their bread. Yes, it's a trivial difference, and that's the point. No other children's book is better at highlighting the absurdity of war. Along with THE SNEETCHES (about discrimination) and THE LORAX (about environmentalism), this is a book I recommend to all parents starting a child's library.
