Description

Dr. Seuss’s irrepressible optimism is front and center in Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?
“When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad . . .
you should do what I do!”
So begins the terrific advice of the wise old man in the Desert of Drize. This classic book provides the perfect antidote for readers of all ages who are feeling a bit down in the dumps. Thanks to Dr. Seuss’s trademark rhymes and signature illustrations, readers will, without a doubt, realize just how lucky they truly are.

“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
