Other people prefer watching TV to reading books. Personally, I get a lot of enjoyment out of reading books. Some people say that they have little spare time and that is why they prefer watching a film to reading a book

Other people prefer watching TV to reading books. Some people say that they have little spare time and that is why they prefer watching a film to reading a book. What is more, watching a film is much easier than reading a book because you don't have to use your imagination. To sum up, it's up to you to decide whether to read a book or to watch its film version. But I'm sure that no screen version can be better than a book itself and it can't substitute a special silent conversation with the author. Most people are fond of detective stories. Others say that reading detective stories is just a waste of time.

While this is a children's book, I have given it as a gift to adult friends and family who have endured surgeries requiring long recuperation. It not only gives them a smile, but helps them think about keeping things in perspective. I think it's a good idea to keep a copy on hand , in case a friend is hospitalized. Nice alternative to a get-well card!

Bought this for my husband for Father’s Day as we are expecting. It was a child memory for him and I understand why! It’s a cute little story.
  • Dagdardana
Loved this book as a kid. Bought it for my own nostalgic pleasure. The price on both the book and the shipping was excellent. The book is a little beaten up but overall, the condition is just fine.

I received this book when I was a little girl. I remember reading it with my parents. The gist is that 2 children complain to their grandfather about their troubles. The grandfather launches into a fantastic tale about what he has had to endure. He ends each part of his adventure with, but "it could be worse." The moral of story being of course, things could always be worse than what your situaton is now. So be thankful. Good lesson to learn! I bought this book for my niece and hope she enjoys it for years to come.
  • Pryl
Just a fun book for boring old grandpas to read. My grand daughter 3 1/2 now quotes it as we read it and her favorite current expression is "Could be Worse"
  • Vital Beast
Great story. Classic
  • Yozshujinn
The book’s content is wonderful and easily read to little ones. The illustrations are superb. I only have it 3 stars because it is much smaller than the original hardback I purchased when the book was first published. Therefore, it’s not as easy for children to appreciate the pictures when adults read to them. Too bad.
I'm always looking for little stories that encourage my children to bounce back from the hits that life can dish out sometimes. This little book did that in a fun way. The little old grandpa has a "bounce back" attitude, he's got a great sense of humor, and he's going to pass it on to his grandchildren. After reading the book, my young daughter had fun making up her own version of the story and proclaiming over and over, "It could be worse!"
