There are dozens of different books by the wonderful Theodore Seuss Guisel, or as children around the world know him, Dr. Seuss. This amazing author of childrens books created stories that enthralled and enchanted, giving children lessons about life while, at the same time, sparking their imagination to new heights. While some of his books are extremely well known, other lesser known stories are just as important and fun to read, including Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?.
Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? is a story about the many different, worse situations that you could be in right now. For instance, your bedroom could be at the top of one tall house and your bathroom at the top of another! This story is meant not only to enthrall children, but also to show them that their life is a wonderful thing and isn’t to be taken for granted, for there are many other worse situations that they could be in than those that they’re in now.
While this is a wonderful example of Dr. Seuss’s amazing artwork and inventive rhyming, many parents do say that their younger children do not get the message that the author was trying to convey. This is why Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? may be a wonderful book for older children who are better able to grasp the story that is being told and what it means.
