"It's awfully awfully awful when you can't make up your mind! Do you want to kick a football? Or sit there on your behind? Do you want to go out skating? Fly a kite? Or climb a tree? Do you want to eat a pizza? Take a bath? Or watch TV? Oh, you get so many hunches that you don't know ever quite if the right hunch is a wrong hunch! Then the wrong hunch might be right! There I was, inside the house, so fuddled up I could shout, when I got a hunch, a Happy Hunch, that I shouldn't be in . . . but OUT! ..."

With rolicking rhyme, my favorite Dr. Seuss story begins: "I was real happy and carefree and young And I lived in a place called the Valley of Vung And nothing, not anything ever went wrong Until . . . well, one day I was walking along And I guess I got careless. I guess I got gawking At daisies and not looking where I was walking . . . . And that's how it started. Sock! What a shock! I stubbed my big toe On a very hard rock And I flew through the air And I went for a sail And I sprained the main bone In the tip of my tail! Now, I never had ever had Troubles before. So I said to myself, "I don't want any more. "If I watch out for rocks With my eyes straight ahead, I'll keep out of trouble Forever," I said. But, watching ahead. . . Well, it just didn't work. I was watching those rocks. Then I felt a hard jerk. A very fresh green-headed Quilligan Quail Sneaked up from in back and went after my tail! And I learned there are troubles Of more than one kind. Some come from ahead. And some come from behind." Other delightful books by Dr. Seuss are available from Bookshare.

Here is a completely new and different kind of book by Dr. Seuss using a spectrum of colors, a menagerie of animals and his familiar bouncing rhyme. Dr. Seuss wrote this book about feelings and moods in 1973. He stated in a letter that he hoped "a great color artist who will not be dominated by me" could be found to illustrate the manuscript, one who might bring a "new art style and pattern of thinking" to his words. At last his text has found the perfect compliment in the stunning expressive paintings of Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher. With the playful type design, here is one beautiful book, bubbling with the kind of fun and emotional truth that is bound to appeal to very young children as well as to Dr. Seuss fans of all ages.
From the Book Jacket: Yes, here is a wonderfully wise and blessedly brief graduation speech from the one and only Dr. Seuss. In his inimitable, humorous verse and pictures he addresses the Great Balancing Act (life itself, and the ups and downs it presents) while encouraging us to find the success that lies within us. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.) This joyous ode to personal fulfillment is one book that could not have been written by a young upstart. It's Dr. Seuss at his best. Parents will find Oh, the Places You'll Go! the perfect send-off for children starting out in the maze of life, be they nursery school grads or medical school achievers. Everyone will find it inspired good fun. A Book-of-the-Month Club Selection

And the words they DON'T recognize are the kind of wonderful silly nonsensical that only Dr. Seuss can think up. It's the kind of book that children will love to read - and think about - all by themselves. The book comes from the house of THE CAT IN THE HAT
