5.0 out of 5 stars Where do we go from here? Anywhere at all..., February 15, 2008
This review is from: Oh, The Places You'll Go! (Hardcover)
Oh, The Places You'll Go is yet another wonderful book written by that genius Dr. Seuss. In this book children are encouraged to explore the world and to avoid letting a bad experience hinder them from exploring more new places and things. Naturally, younger children will also profit from this book as a tool to learn how to read and sound out new words as they increase their vocabulary at the same time. Great!

The book starts by asking children to use their imaginations to think up what the real world might be like out there; and parents can help their children by teaching them about the world out there, too. This sets things up for an exciting and educational discussion between parent and child about the real world out there. Seuss clearly puts the child in the driver's seat when he writes "and YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go." Seuss encourages kids to always strive to explore while being creative and open to new things; Seuss writes that "you'll pass the whole gang and you'll soon take the lead." Can you imagine how stimulating that must be to a young child just breaking out of their shell? It's very good.

However, Seuss remains honest about life. This book also teaches young children that sometimes they may not like a certain place they've come to but that they should never let that discourage them from going on to bigger and better things once more.

The text has great rhyming and the illustrations are wonderful.

The hardcover book can withstand accidental attempts to damage it without breaking at all; and the paper quality is rather good, too.

Overall, this fine book from Dr. Seuss is indispensable for encouraging young children to explore the world around them and to never quit. Younger children can also benefit from this book as they learn to read and improve their vocabularies.
