This isn't my favorite Suess book but it is good nonetheless. Some of his books, like this one and Bartholomew Cubbins are so long. I don't know how many children would sit and listen to the whole story.

Another leisurely Dr. Seuss book that students will find amusing and cute. It doesn't entirely have a lot of lifelong lessons within it, but it provides for a good laugh, and is enjoyable.

Scrambled Egg Super has been a favorite of mine ever since the first time I held it in my hands. I've always wanted my own 'Scrambled eggs super de dooper, special deluxe a la Peter T. Hooper' I cheered him on every step his adventure, & I can't wait to share it with my grandchildren whenever they arrive.

Peter T. Hooper (of The Cat in the Hat fame) addresses Liz. ' . . . [S]peaking of cooks, I'm the best that there is!' He perceives opportunity. '[I]t's sort of a shame that scrambled eggs always taste always the same.' His recipe is more challenging than the Joy of Cooking's version. Hen eggs just won't cut it. You need hundreds of eggs from different kinds of birds (all that you've never heard of), 99 pans, 55 cans of beans, 2/3 cup of sugar, a small pinch of pepper, a pound of horseradish, some nuts, some ginger, nine prunes, three figs, 22 sprigs of parsley, 6 cinnamon sticks, and one clove. And it's not just any different kinds of eggs. You need eggs from the Ruffle-Necked Sala-ma-goox, Kweet, Tizzle-Topped Grouse, Kwigger, South-West-Facing Crane, Grickily Gructus, Zumm, Bombastic Aghast, and many others. In fact, you have to go to so many places that you need a lot of helpers. When you're done, you've got Scrambled Eggs Super-dee-Dooper-dee-Booper Special de luxe a-la-Peter T. Hooper. And that's what they taste like, too! Reading this book reminded me of all the ways that children like to brag. I remember going to a camp picnic, and seeing that the can of pork and beans I had brought looked better with the top opened than the others. I began waxing eloquently about how carefully I had chosen my can of beans. Then, another boy noted that the only reason my beans looked better was because he had stirred them up with a spoon to bring the beans to the top of the can! I became much more humble about my grocery shopping skills after that experience. Peter T. Hooper hasn't been brought to ground yet. A fun thing to use this book for is to think with your youngster about how favorite dishes could be made even better. Then, you can go on to consider how to add variety to other things that you do. This imagining will expand your child's intellect, and help both of you to lead more purposeful, interesting lives! Be super!
