Will you succeed?Oh joy!
Yes, you will indeed.
(98¾ percent guaranteed).
Dr Seuss's final book as a pop up. Imagine that.
This book tackling life and its challenges works beautifully at 5, but it works equally well when your teen leaves home for university at 18, and when a friend finds herself suddenly single at 40. After all, nobody's too old to be reassured that their head is full of brains and their shoes are full of feet and that they're too smart to go down any not-so-good street, are they?
OH!Sometimes life will go your way; sometimes it won't:
THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!
Wherever you go, you will top all the rest.
Except when you don't.
Because, sometimes you won't.
I always have a couple of these lovely books to post to friends in crisis, and this pop-up version will be a sublime addition to my Present Drawer. I love it.
As an aside, Julia Eccleshare in her book, 1001 Children's Books You Must Read Before You Grow Up says that this book is often described as being a Christian book; others vehemently disagree. What do you think?
