ABOUT THE BOOK
Dr. Seuss’s irrepressible optimism is front and center in Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are?
“When you think things are bad,
when you feel sour and blue,
when you start to get mad . . .
you should do what I do!”
So begins the terrific advice of the wise old man in the Desert of Drize. This classic book provides the perfect antidote for readers of all ages who are feeling a bit down in the dumps. Thanks to Dr. Seuss’s trademark rhymes and signature illustrations, readers will, without a doubt, realize just how lucky they truly are. [from Random House, Suessville].
We hope that by pairing our literacy curriculum with the Core Essential Values program that we can gently reinforce healthy concepts while promoting a love of reading.
We invite you to read along with us!

A common language.
That's the secret sauce to our curriculum.
A common language of a value and it's simple definition. A value is an inward attitude that produces an outward behavior.
Core Essentials combines the forces of a value and its definition and pairs it with a framework of easily-to-implement tools. Using values that schools and parents can all agree on, we rotate 30 value words and definitions over a three year time span. Curriculum components are written each year so that the material for the rotating values are always new and relevant!
