Oh, The Places You’ll Go!

Publisher: HarperCollins

Review

You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So...get on your way! KID, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!

This classic book, loved by generations of families, talks to the young (or adult!) reader about what life is, what they can expect as they get older and how to move through the experience of living with joy, thankfulness, ambition and kindness. Sometimes things will be wonderful; sometimes there will be challenges. You may meet people who aren’t quite what you expected or find streets you might nor feel are right for you to walk on. You may fall in love and do the most wonderful things in the world. But most of all, you have a choice: You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.

Young children will enjoy the recognizable Dr Seuss rhythms, and the illustrations are as crazy as ever. But also, this is a book that parents and children can return to again and again – perhaps when it’s time to talk about difficult times, or growing up and finding a place in the world. It’s a deeply philosophical book and perfect for new parents or parents-to-be.
