Dr Seuss Tour Banner

Today, for the first time in forever…kidding, it only feels like forever, Dr. Seuss releases a new book. Not a "ghost writer" Dr. Seuss book – oh no! This is is 100% from the man himself!

How, you might ask? Well…

About What Pet Should I Get

In the Fall of 2013, an original manuscript with accompanying sketches by Dr. Seuss, aka Ted Geisel, was discovered in the La Jolla, California home of the late beloved children’s author. That complete manuscript was for the picture book, WHAT PET SHOULD I GET?, and will be published by Random House Children’s Books on July 28, 2015. It is the first original new Dr. Seuss book since the publication of the last book of Dr. Seuss’s career, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! in 1990. WHAT PET SHOULD I GET? captures the excitement of a classic childhood moment—choosing a pet—and features the brother and sister characters that Dr. Seuss drew inOne Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish.

It's an exciting day and to celebrate Random House has 44 bloggers and vloggers reviewing Seuss's first 44 books! I chose DID I EVER TELL YOU HOW LUCKY YOU ARE?

My Review of Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?

DID I EVER TELL YOU HOW LUCKY YOU ARE
Published: September 1973
Publisher: Random House

DID I EVER TELL YOU HOW LOUCKY YOU ARE? is an adorable tale filled with the comforting rhyming and made-up silliness you would expect from Dr. Seuss that helps young children see just how lucky they are.

I picked this book from the list for 2 reasons. The first reason being it was one that I'd never read. We have a hearty Dr. Seuess collecting here – don't get me wrong – but when you look at the list below I think that even you will find a few titles you didn't know were out there.

The second reason I chose it was because of the message. As a mom I'm always trying to instill in my children the life lesson to be be kind and never take the things you have for granted. DID I EVER TELL YOU HOW LUCKY YOU ARE? does just this. In poppy and fun to read rhymes and using fictional scenarios we remind kids and adults alike that no matter how bad things seem, it can always be worse and it can always get better.
