"When I was quite young and quite small for my size, I met an old man in the Desert of Drize." The old man looks like a cross between a cartoon granddad and a swami; he sits on top of a cactus, and tells his young listener that the best way to get over any sadness is to imagine all the ways you could be worse off. "Suppose, just suppose, you were poor Herbie Hart, who has taken his Throm-dim-bu-lator apart!" This has a more hurried, formulaic feel than the best Seuss, and it seems to showcase a less acute grasp of child psychology than usual. (Does it really make a child feel better to think of poor Harry Haddow, who, "try as he will, can't make a shadow," or Gucky Gown, "who lives by himself ninety miles out of town"?) But the illustrations alone make this morality tale a minor classic. (Ages 4 to 8) --Richard Farr

I highly recommend this if you have a kid who is always griping about things because either:
A) someone has more stuff than they do/they don't get every single thing they want.
B) because you have the audacity to require them to do things like homework or chores.
Start reading this to your kids as early as possible and it DOES help them have a positive outlook, especially if you can also 'buy in' to the message; you're never too old to remember that "Some people are much-much, oh ever so much-much, so muchly much-much unlucky than you!"
