Meet the Author

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.  Dr. Seusss first children's book, And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street  hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!  In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.  Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents.  In the process, he helped kids learn to read.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and two Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 childrens books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages.  Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.

    Love love love this version of the Dr.Seuss classic

    I adore that this version of a wonderful Dr. Seuss book is read in utero. I read it to all three of my boys in utero and continued to read it (though I tweaked it a bit) after they were born as well. It's a staple gift that I give to all my expecting loved ones and friends.

    Perfect bonding tool!

    This book is awesome! The baby hears my voice all day so at night it is the Daddy-to-be who reads this book to our growing, unborn baby. He wells up with tears at the end EVERY time. Precious memories are being created. I am buying this book for all my pregnant friends!

    The best 'just found out you're having a baby' book gift

    We got this book as a baby shower gift since we were decorating baby's room with Seuss characters. I have always enjoyed reading and have fond memories of Seuss books as a child. We found that it calmed our kids as we read this book to them before bed when they were infants. They love to read now and still like this book. It's a lot of fun to read through the book and guess which book the various characters are from. I just found Lolla Lee Lou is in the 'Yertle the Turtle & other stories) book. I should get a HUGE volume discount for all the copies I have bought in the last few years for pregnant friends. I could only rate it 5 stars but it deserves even more.

    A friend gave this book to me when I was pregnant now I want to get it for a friend! I LOVE IT!! I know it by heart, I read it every night to my baby when I was pregnant and he would kick when I started reading. He's 14 months now & still loves it & recognizes it.

    So much fun...

    I received this book when I was 4 months pregnant with my son. I had such a fun time reading it to him while still in the womb. I can't say I noticed anything different regarding fetal movement, but I do believe we were bonding, and I'd recommend it to anyone. In fact, I'm buying two now for friends who are expecting.

    A wonderful book that will make you smile

    I think that this is the most wonderful book. I have read it over and over again. I just wish that Dr.Suess could have been able to write even more books.

    READING CAN BE FUN

    My husband and I read this book before AND after my son was born. He is two now and has a baby sister who also heard this book in utero! We love to sit and read to them every night before bedtime.

    Amazing

    I read this book to my first child while I was pregnant, she used to kick around when I first started and by the end she would settle into what I thought was sleep. She now has a love for reading no one can stop!! I will give this to my sister to read to her first child also! Wonderful book.

    Great Gift Idea

    Oh Baby, The places You'll Go was given to me as a gift when I was pregnant with my son. I thought this was a very clever and thoughtful idea. I read it often while I was pregnant and now give it as a gift to pregnant friends at baby showers.

    Learning in Utero!

    I have always loved reading and I want to instill this same love into my daughter. I read this book to hear everyday from the time I was 6 months pregnant. She is now 14 months old and we still read lots of books everyday and she LOVES her books! Who knows if this book actually helped her to love reading, but, even if there is a slight chance that it could help you should try. Plus, it has a nice sing-song rythmn to it and it helped me relax towards those last stressful weeks of pregnancy and get me in the 'mommy' frame of mind!
