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.
