The best way to give bad medicine is to sweeten it with humor, and Seuss does that with style. Here is a humble piece of advice that, like the best humble pieces of advice, is the product of considerable enlightenment: There is solace in knowing you may have it bad but others have it worse.

Seuss's unfortunates may be unfortunate, but not scarily so. They're the kind of folks who can actually see the grass growing in the wake of their lawn mower, or can't throw a shadow, or break their poogle-horns at all the wrong times. Still, who wants a fractured poogle-horn when the Prince of Poo-Boken is expecting a serenade?

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
