Did I Ever Tell You...

My all time favorite Dr. Seuss book is called Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?! It is so hilarious I love the whole book. But I love this part so much because it just keeps going and going and going like the Energizer Bunny...LOL

"Oh, the jobs people work at!

Out west, near Hawtch-Hawtch,

there’s a Hawtch-Hawtcher Bee-Watcher.

His job is to watch…

is to keep both his eyes on the lazy town bee.
A bee that is watched will work harder, you see.

Well…he watched and he watched.

But, in spite of his watch,
that bee didn’t work any harder. Not Mawtch.

So somebody said,

“Our old-bee-watching man

just isn’t bee-watching as hard as he can.

He ought to be watched by another Hawtch-Hawtcher!

The thing that we need
is a Bee-Watcher-Watcher!”


The Bee-Watcher-Watcher watched the Bee-Watcher.

He didn’t watch well. So another Hawtch-Hawtcher

had to come in as a Watch-Watcher-Watcher!

And today all the Hawtchers who live in Hawtch-Hawtch

are watching on Watch-Watcher-Watchering-Watch,

Watch-Watching the Watcher who’s watching the bee.
You’re not a Hawtch-Watcher. You’re lucky, you see!"

Some time you need to check this book out at the library or buy it, it is worth buying! I found it online, but there aren't pictures, just text. And a picture is really worth a 1000 words with this book! :)
