Product description

Amazon.com Review

Inspirational yet honest, and always rhythmically rollicking, Oh, the Places You'll Go! is a perfect sendoff for children, 1 to 100, entering any new phase of their lives. Kindergartners, graduate students, newlyweds, newly employeds--all will glean shiny pearls of wisdom about the big, bountiful future. The incomparable Dr. Seuss rejoices in the potential everyone has to fulfill their wildest dreams: "You'll be on your way up! / You'll be seeing great sights! / You'll join the high fliers / who soar to high heights." At the same time, he won't delude the starry-eyed upstart about the pitfalls of life: "You can get all hung up / in a prickle-ly perch. / And your gang will fly on. / You'll be left in a Lurch."

But fear not! Dr. Seuss, with his inimitable illustrations and exhilarating rhymes, is convinced ("98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed") that success is imminent. As long as you remember "to be dexterous and deft. And NEVER mix up your right foot with your left," things should work out. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter

3.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring message but too abstract for 3-5 years old
By Vishal Kapoor on 11 September 2020
This book is highly rated and i love the message it conveys. But designs throughout the book are too abstract for 3-5 years old in my opinion.

My 29mo old doesn't really engage with it because it is not realistic and is also hard for me to read as it's too and hard to explain what it means. There may be other books with bigger messages but with simple designs so the kid can at least interact with the images but not in this case as i said they are too abstract.

There is a page about fun and it depicts a circus with elephants wearing roller blades and holding people up - that's pretty sad and doesn't convey the true message of exploiting animals for fun is actually cruel and shouldn't be encouraged - i found this part really sad.

I would recommend this book for over 6 year old kids perhaps those who have started school and are about to begin their life journey and experience disappointment, failure, success etc

5.0 out of 5 stars Unashamed optimism leaps out from almost every page
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 8 March 2019
Quite simply, this is a fantastic book, with exclamation marks galore!!! It makes me smile. It inspires a positive mental attitude. It makes me want to grab the nearest child (preferably one of my own), sit them down and impart the words of advice held within. The unashamed optimism leaps out from almost every page as the story follows a little boy in a yellow onesie on his journey through many weird and brightly-coloured places. I like to think of it as the first child-friendly self-help book, full to the brim with positive messages.

However, if like me you are more of a realist than an optimist, you will particularly like the notes of caution and realism peppered amongst the positivity. My favourites: 'Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.' And: 'Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.'
