Seuss-Isms (Life Favors) Feb 2, 2007
This is a tiny tiny book in both size and number of pages. It contains nothing new.........just phrases from other Seuss Stories. I bought it for a gift but was embarrased by the content and size. I bought something else. No reason I can see for anyone buying this book. Don''t waste your money.
Seuss-isms Dec 18, 2005
This book contains many great quotes from all sorts of Dr. Seuss books. Many of the entries in this book can be related to real life values.
`A book of common sense from a man who wrote about non-sense.' Dec 9, 2005
Dr. Seuss is unfortunately looked over by some people as just a guy who wrote silly little children's books. That may be partially true, but all of his books had a much deeper meaning if you are willing to be open-minded and take a closer look. His work is brilliant and outlandishly creative; so much so that he is recognized as the creator of the word `Nerd' in the English language when the word was first featured in his 1950 book `If I Ran the Zoo.' Some people believe that it is unfair to take quotes from his work after his death and related it to `lessons of life' the way this book does and that the quotes have no relation at all to what they are connected with. I don't believe that is true at all; I believe that he wrote these stories with the exact meaning they are realted too, which is why his books are brilliant. Here are two of my favorite quotes from the book so you can judge for yourself...
ON EQUALITY AND JUSTICE
`I know, up on top you are seeing great sights, but down at the bottom we, too, should have rights.'
ON GOING PLACES
`The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.'
If you still think Dr. Suess books are just for kids then ponder this...
