    Paradoxical imagery so shiny that you get lost in the conundrum.Pushes the imagination to the brink.I remember a quote that mind staples with this book And it goes asAll children are born artists The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up Pablo Picasso

    Classic book by Dr Seuss with lots of imaginative little monsters and lots of made up words that they can surprisingly rhyme.

    I love, love, love Dr Seuss Always have and I think I always will.Sadly, this book didn t live up to many of my other favorites The rhymes weren t smooth sometimes it didn t even rhyme And while the made up words were cute, they feltlike a way to make a rhyme than anything else.I liked the illustrations, I love the idea, and parts of it did make me smile But mostly it just felt like a rough draft.Thankfully there are so many fantastically wonderful Seuss books out there, that th I love, love, love Dr Seuss Always have and I think I always will.Sadly, this book didn t live up to many of my other favorites The rhymes weren t smooth sometimes it didn t even rhyme And while the made up words were cute, they feltlike a way to make a rhyme than anything else.I liked the illustrations, I love the idea, and parts of it did make me smile But mostly it just felt like a rough draft.Thankfully there are so many fantastically wonderful Seuss books out there, that there s plenty of his works to read before this one ETA Obviously plenty of others loved this book So, perhaps it was just the mood I was in when I read it

    A nice book to make kids think about imaginary stuff and somehow make them think out of the box I read it for my niece and nephew and they are still asking questions on what is a moon, why think of 3 moons Why notor less What is moon made of and further questions leading to prove me wrong on insisting that we live on the surface of the earth

    My favorite kind of Dr Suess book no plot, just rampant silliness and nonsensicality Happy Birthday, Theodor Seuss Geisel, and thanks for all the absurdity.

    I can t begin to imagine what an adult reading this book who didn t grow up with it might think of it You could think a volume of things, of course, and hopefully you love it as much I always have, but don t be too quick to write it off as nonsense Amazingly psychedelic in the way only the seventies could ve been, with no shortage of silliness, sure, but all that is just the candy touch on possibly the most invaluable lesson you could teach a child keep your mind open and keep your imaginati I can t begin to imagine what an adult reading this book who didn t grow up with it might think of it You could think a volume of things, of course, and hopefully you love it as much I always have, but don t be too quick to write it off as nonsense Amazingly psychedelic in the way only the seventies could ve been, with no shortage of silliness, sure, but all that is just the candy touch on possibly the most invaluable lesson you could teach a child keep your mind open and keep your imagination active, no matter what.Think for yourself Share your ideas, write them down if they re important to remember, even if nobody else thinks so In an era of technological manipulation at every corner, all you may have left to yourself in the end is your mind, so don t let it stagnate.It s rare that I actually go out and buy children s books now It s not that I don t like them and appreciate what they mean, but I don t know any children, and children s books feel different and somehow shallower when you re an adult, if that makes sense I made an exception for Oh, the Thinks You Can Thinkrecently, since well, my childhood copy is at least a decade older than I am, and looks like it s been run through the ringer That is, if someone had crammed the ringer full of broken crayons and miscellaneous sugary drinks first.The message is what resonates with me now, but I ll still always love the art, especially now that I get to actually see it without a veil of scribbles over it Like I said, Suess is pretty psychedelic and that surreal, colourful style really appeals to me.An interesting thing, though, is that the scene that stands out to me most is one of the least vibrant, and that is the page where a little boy is standing on what looks like the main street of a ghost town, face to face with the silhouette of a monster And what would you do if you met a JibbooSuess asks.What would we do We don t know what this stranger wants of us, but from the way it lingers in the dark, at a distance that s still far too close, we don t really want to.I always looked forward to turning the page to see this scene, solely because of how weird and unnerving it was Researching it a bit further, it seems like a lot of people remember being scared out of their wits by the Jibboo, so much so that he was included as a phantom that torments the main character in Halloween is Grinch Night, in a very memorable acid trip horror sequence You ll know it if you ve seen it.Not every spark of imagination or reason for newfound curiosity is a pleasant one The fact is that all of us will eventually be faced with a fear that we don t, or can t understand In the end, it is better to face those ideas, those unknowable horrors that may just specifically haunt us Try to get some bearing on what they are and what they mean, or else be forced to waste away in hiding from them.Learning to be courageous and quick witted against those kinds of fears as a child, which can be incredibly out of proportion and weird, because everything is when you re a child, is just as vital as an exposure to new ways of thinking If you can be brave against mysterious anxieties and what ifs , you won t be limited by anything More books and reviews here on my blog
