Item description for You're Only Old Once!: A Book for Obsolete Children (Classic Seuss) by Seuss...

Dr. Seuss's elderly Everyman travels, in rhyme and illustrations, along the Golden Years Clinic's assembly line of medical tests and questions, meeting Miss Becker of Stethescope Row, Dr. Pollen, Dietician Van Eiffel, and others

Publishers Description
With his unmistakable rhymes and signature illustration style, Dr. Seuss creates a classic picture-book ode to aging in "You're Only Old Once " On a visit to "the Golden Years Clinic on Century Square for Spleen Readjustment and Muffler Repair," readers will laugh with familiar horror at the poking and prodding and testing and ogling that go hand in hand with the dreaded appellation of "senior citizen." Though Dr. Seuss is known for his peerless work in books for children, this comical look at what it's like to get older is ideal for Seuss fans of advanced years. In his own words, this is "a book for obsolete children." A perfect gift for retirement, birthdays, and holidays

Close to the truth  Apr 5, 2008
Easy to order. Arrived on time.
A funny book for us old folks. I have ordered copies for my aging friends.
Seussisms  Jul 30, 2007
This is a great gift for all your friends turning 50!
Lets them know exactly what to expect in the coming years.
No one could say it better than Dr. Suess.
You'll Laugh  Jun 2, 2007
I first saw this book while visiting friends in a retirement home. When I got home I immediately ordered it from this site and placed it on my coffee table. If you are even on the verge of getting older, you will understand Dr. Seuss' adventure to the doctor's office, and appreciate the humor he injects concerning the many tests, etc. one sometimes must tolerate as we age.
Must Have for 60th Birthdays  May 12, 2007
The family has given this book to friends for years as a gift on their 60th birthday. It is a fun look at the aging process and brings laughter from all who have received the book. Usually we have the friend sit on our laps and we read it to them as we would a child. Great stuff..
Can't live without prescriptions from the good doctor.  May 7, 2007
What more can be said? There will never be another Dr. Suess. I'm never disappointed when it comes to Dr. Suess. And this site has great service, by the way.
