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.

It's a great little book, with a sweet message and a pretty clever intro to all the wonderful characters of Dr. Seuss. My now-two-year-old and I still read this book often and he gets excited and points to all the characters from his other books, so it's a book you can keep reading for a long time.
I bought it because I was looking for something to read to my baby before she is born, and this book is made for that. But I wish I'd seen previews first. I suppose it is not very aptly named. I am returning it and will read "Oh Baby Go Baby" to my little one instead, as that is just a simplified version of the original (with fun tactile aspects for when baby gets older).
