It Could Always be Worse By Margot Zemach

Buy This Book

A villager frustrated by his crowded raucous house goes to see the rabbi, who counsels him--in effect--to make things considerably worse. He's told to acquire a cow, a goat, some geese? His house becomes louder and wilder, messier and crazier, until finally, the man is able to appreciate what he had to begin with. Try this book on a night when you're serving green beans, and when the kids complain, whip out the Brussels sprouts!
