Dr. Seuss, always a voice of reason, even in his beautiful and nonsensical world, really nails it in this wonderful tale of the places that you will go. This book is a must for every child, but more so for every adult! Those of us who may have forgotten that yes, the world may be scary and hard at times, but the beauty and joy will outweigh any times of loneliness or sadness. I get teary-eyed every time that I re-read this beautiful story. If you haven't heard the story, The Burning Man 2011 put together a marvelous reading of it. It is available on youtube. It can be found here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ahv_1IS7SiE -- A must watch!
Dr. Seuss books are on sale right now in the iPad applications so we have bought a lot of his books. This one included. It is one of my sons favorite books! We read them everynight before bedtime and I like the fact that the iPad version of the books are interactive. Highly recommend and iPad or iPhone user to check them out.
My 3 girls and I, LOVE Dr. Suess! Going to see the Lorax this weekend! We have pretty much every Dr. Suess book, I think. Some are new ones that we bought just for them, and some are mine from when I was a kid! I love books, I love reading, and I am trying to pass that down to my kids. I think I am doing a pretty good job of it too! Dr. Suess is one of their favorites. We read them at naptime, at bedtime, on rainy days when we're stuck inside, and sometimes just because! I thin they like the Dr. Suess books, because of the rhyming. It's fun and easy for themt o remember. And I would say Oh the Places You'll Go is in there top 5! My family loves this book! We love all Dr. Suess books. And I would recommend it to anyone with children!
I am a huge Dr. Seuss fan! Oh the Places You'll Go has a powerful message for all generations. I read it to my young children, as a teacher and coach I have given it as a gift to graduating Seniors and I myself find value in lesson it shares.
i absolutely loved reading this book with my kids when they were little! i love all the dr. seuss books, but this is definitely one of my favorites.:)
I love this book, it has such a great message. In a way it is exactly what you want your kids to know, just has a more fun way of telling it!
My kids and I enjoy this book. Any book by Dr. Seuss is a favorite for us.
My 4 yr old loves everything Dr. Seuss.. This is a favorite..
This was one of my favorite books to read to my daughter when she was younger. It is actually still on her bookshelf at law school. She loved it as well. There is a good lesson in the fun words.
This is one of my all time favorites by Dr. Suess! I love how tells how there are so many places and new things to try, you may be lonely but you have to try. This book should be a read for all preschoolers and reread every time a major change is about to happen because it reminds one to try, it will be okay.
