The Sneetches

By: Dr. Seuss

Summary

The Sneetches is a story about a beaches full of creatures. These creatures are called Sneetches. And they are separated by if they have stars on their belly and if they do not have stars on their belly. The Plained Bellied Sneetches were left out most of the activities that the Stared Bellied Sneetches held. Then one day a man named Mr. McBean drives up in a truck and builds a star on machine. That can put stars on the non-stared Sneetches bellies. So the stared Sneetches got fed up with the now stared belly Sneetches. So Mr. McBean build a star off machine. This machine could take off the stars on the Sneetches. Then the Sneetches kept switching from stars to no stars. Until they couldn't tell each other apart. Then Mr. McBean packed up his machines and said that the Sneetches would never learn. But the Sneetches learned that it doesn't matter and joined together.

Implication 1

It doesn't matter what you look like. The Plain Bellied Sneetches changed how they looked so they could fit in with the Stared Bellied Sneetches. When I was younger I would try to fit in by changing my appearance. When I got older I realized that I Could be myself to fit in as well.

The Plained Bellied Sneetches said 'We're just like you" to the Stared Bellied Sneetches when they got their stars

Implication 2

Every person is unique in their own way. If you tell someone that they are not, they would try to change themselves. Just like the Plained Bellied Sneetches in the story.

In the Story the Sneetches said "Sneetches are Sneetches" and noticed that there wasn't a difference between them.

This story reminds me of the civil rights movement because there was discrimination during that period.

No, I haven't because like my mom always told me "If you can't be yourself to fit in with a crowd, then you more than likely shouldn't hang out with that crowd

Yes, I have tried to change how I act just to fit in with some of my friends. I realized they would be my friends even if I was different from them, if I was myself.

Yes I have tried to change something about me and that thing was my personality just so I could fit in with others. I think that everyone has tried to change their personality and acted like someone they weren't just so they could fir in with everyone else. In reality you don't have to do those things just to fit in.
