Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? (all Ages) (h)

Author: Seuss

"When I was quite young and quite small for my size, I met an old man in the Desert of Drize." The old man looks like a cross between a cartoon granddad and a swami; he sits on top of a cactus, and tells his young listener that the best way to get over any sadness is to imagine all the ways you could be worse off. "Suppose, just suppose, you were poor Herbie Hart, who has taken his Throm-dim-bu-lator apart!" This has a more hurried, formulaic feel than the best Seuss, and it seems to showcase a less acute grasp of child psychology than usual. (Does it really make a child feel better to think of poor Harry Haddow, who, "try as he will, can't make a shadow," or Gucky Gown, "who lives by himself ninety miles out of town"?) But the illustrations alone make this morality tale a minor classic. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr

About the Author




Dr. Seuss was born Theodore Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2,

1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a

career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the

Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines.


Dr. Seusss first children's book, And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street hit

the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed

forever!


In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random

House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined

engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach

basic reading skills.


Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his

way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In

the process, he helped kids learn to read.


Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and two Academy Awards, Seuss was the

author and illustrator of 44 childrens books, some of which have been made into

audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all

ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling
