B.C. Premier John Horgan took to Facebook last night to read one of his "all-time favourite" childhood books.

"As B.C. families have been staying home more, there might be parents who want a bit of a break in the evening. So please feel free to share with your kids - or fellow parents," Horgan wrote in a post to Facebook yesterday, May 19.

Dr. Seuss’s Yertle the Turtle was the book and it’s a story of how the king of the pond, dissatisfied with the stone that serves as his throne, commands the other turtles to stack themselves beneath him so that he can see farther and expand his kingdom.

The childhood book is an examination of justice, political rights and authority and has long been a well-loved bookshelf staple for Seuss-lovers.
