Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

A charming gift for expectant parents, Oh Baby, the Places You'll Go is designed to be an in utero introduction to the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss. Adapted from his works, and touching on them all from Horton to Who-ville, author Tish Rabe has maintained Seuss's style perfectly. Your baby is the unnamed star of the book, and reading directly to your tummy becomes easy with lines like "the words I am saying you hear in your heart, and know that I wish you the very best start." Filled with the good doctor's whimsical illustrations, you'll find all your favorite characters, with a short rhyme that mentions each one--and just enough direct quotations to get those infants stimulated when you read Seuss's whole books to them at a later date. --Jill Lightner

From the Inside Flap

Artfully extracted and adapted almost entirely from Ted Geisel's work, this is a must for all expectant parents - and introduction to the wonderful world of Dr. Suess for their adorable baby-to-be. Exciting new discoveries are being made all the time about how much learning takes place while a baby is still in its mother's womb, and Oh, Baby, the Places You'll Go! makes the perfect welcome! It's never too early to start them on a rich and healthy regimen of good ol' Dr. Seuss.  

More About the Author

Tish Rabe (pronounced "Robby") is a best-selling children's book author who has written over 160 children's books including The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library, a series of non-fiction Dr. Seuss science books, which have sold over 4 million copies. A new television series based on these books, "The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about That" airs daily on PBS Kids (http://www.pbskids.org/catinthehat).

Ms. Rabe also created her own original character "The I Believe Bunny" for Thomas Nelson (www.ibelievebunny.com) a series of gentle, inspirational stories featuring beautiful watercolor illustrations, which won the Mom's Choice Gold Award for Best Picture Book in 2010.

This isn't a full size book, it's VERY small.

I have been giving this book as a pregnancy gift to my friends, I also bought one and read to my baby when I was pregnant.

I read this book almost every night to my baby while she was in my tummy.

I received this book with my first pregnancy and have since given it to every single pregnant friend I know (I buy several at a time and save on shipping.) It is funny, perfectly Dr. Seuss, and fun to read to your thumping belly. Best of all, it is small, colorful, and embodies all the joy and anticipation you feel as you wait on your baby. And because it is Seuss, your older children can read it to their sibling-to-be.

Of all the gifts my wife and I received for our first baby, this was undoubtedly the best. Not only did it give me, a first time father, the chance to bond with our son, it gave both of us a great deal to think about as well. Today, a year later, I can't even think about this book without a tear coming to my eyes. I highly recommend it for any parents-to-be, and it truly makes a gift that will last a lifetime.

My husband read this book to our baby in utero during my first pregnancy. When I was pregnant with my second child, we read the book as a family to the new baby. My toddler loves the book and loved reading it to her new baby. This book has become a bedtime favorite.

I received this book as a gift from a coworker when I was about 4 months pregnant. I have read it almost daily to my unborn child and I love the feeling it gives me to read it and know that my child is listening! I am almost 6 months pregnant, and with the baby kicking me constantly, I am reminded that he wants to hear his favorite book! I love the creativity within this book, the emotions it brings while reading it, and the idea that my child is reading already! It isn't expensive nor does it take all day to read. Highly recommended!

My mom and I were trying to find a few gifts to give my pregnant sister before she had her baby shower, and when I saw this book, I knew she'd love it. And I was right! She's been reading the book to her soon-to-be baby boy ever since. A real treat for any woman expecting who grew up with Dr. Seuss' books. Don't pass this one up!

The book itself is one of the best kids books out there, but after opening the box and seeing it is actually a pocket size book, both my daughter and I were a little disappointed, yes mostly me because my daughter at the bookstore loved the book, nut at home when she got it she did not pay attention to it for more than a few minutes, where as when she gets regular size books she would be hunting for people to read it to.
It would be very helpful if there was a description specifying the tininess of it.

This book was wonderful while I was pregnant! My husband read to our son every night before bed and as our son grew his responses to his father's voice grew. How amazing it was to see that connection being made before they could even see each other! My son will be one this month and he is still fascinated with books and our voices. This is a great addition to that big pile of pregnancy books you have next to the bed in anticipation of the big day!!

They say we should start reading to baby before s/he's even born and this cute book is supposedly for doing just that. It's 1 or 2 paragraph snippets from varoius Dr. Suess classics. The rhyming verses bounce along simply and you'll know it by heart after 10 reads. Mommy to be says she can sometimes feel the baby move as I read to her belly. A cute baby book.
