O is very useful.
You use it when you say:
“Oscar’s only ostrich oiled an orange owl today.”

Dr. Seuss, faithful to his mission, entertainingly and effectively 000aec48delivers the educational goods — in this case, the alphabet. The letters each take a turn in the spotlight and then are wedded to a few well-chosen words that convey the Seuss worldview of the high humor to be found in mental play: “Many mumbling mice are making midnight music in the moonlight … mighty nice.”

Because Seuss’s illustrations are all about possibility — quacking 000afbb5quacker-oo, policeman in a pail, ten tired turtles on a tuttle-tuttle tree — that same sense rubs off on the letters: Here, take these letters, they’re fun! Rub ’em together and see what you come up with. There is no better way to take the anxiety out of something than to make friends with it.
