This is a great childhood book that has a lesson, about no matter how tough your situation is there is always someone who has it worse. It is a great way to talk to your kids about how lucky they are. It is something we all can appreciate.

I picked up this book at the library before going out to babysit, without looking at it as I thought anything by Dr. Seuss would be great. Boy, was I wrong. I like the idea of saying to kids that they should count their blessings, but this book was just too much of a mishmash between the real and unreal. (Apparently, in Seuss's world there's both a pants-eating-plant in the actual place of France as well as a left-behind sock in the made-up Kaverns of Krock, and both should be considered unlucky). Generally, I enjoy the nonsense of Dr. Seuss's language and made-up things and places, but this was just too far out there for me, especially when attempting to teach such a serious lesson. Even the child I was babysitting kept saying "why?" to every bizarre thing before losing attention and moving on to something else (and this is a usual very attentive child). I was sorry I had picked this one out and put myself through trying to read its tongue-twisting language.

Suprised how this grew on me. I'm not a super fan but as my kids got older, they kept returning to this. It is head and shoulders above green eggs and ham and Horton Hears a Who and Cat in the Hat. Unlike some of those, there's plenty of pics and details on the pages to keep your kids pointing to and identifying things. Each page could be a story in itself. With a good positive message for adults too.
