The Sneetches Meet Dr. King

We have been talking about Dr. Seuss books this week and I read my kiddos the Sneetches.There are several different themes to this story, but I wanted to focus on the tolerance aspect. Earlier in the year we learned all about Martin Luther King, Jr. and his influence on the Civil Rights Movement. My question was, what would have happened if Dr. King had visited the Sneetches. I was asking them to apply what they learned about a historical figure to this new story. What I like about their answers is most talked about what Dr. King would do, but some talked about how he would have been treated and even one about what the Sneetches response would be.
