Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Eleanor Heldrich
Hooray for David Carter! Without changing a picture or a word of Dr. Seuss' spirited and inspiring book first published in 1990 about facing life and its ups and downs with joy and anticipation, Carter, by enlivening the work with pop-ups, brings it to another generation of children. There are seven double-page spreads alternating full spread pop-ups with smaller single page lift-the-flap pops. The text, in Dr. Seuss's usual light verse, begins with "Congratulations! Today is your day. You're off to Great Places. You're off and away." The next few pages are encouraging: "Oh, the things that can happen." "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you chose." "Wherever you fly, you'll be the best of the best. Wherever you go, you will top all the rest." Dr. Seuss was too smart to promise life with out problems, though. "I'm sorry to say, but sadly, it's true that Bang-ups and Hang-ups will happen to you." You might lose your way, you may be afraid, you may take the wrong path but "you'll face up to your problems whatever they are. And will you succeed? Yes! You will indeed! (98 and ? percent guaranteed.) KID, YOU'LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!" In addition to the upbeat message of the book, it is just plain fun to read, aloud or to yourself. Reviewer: Eleanor Heldrich
Publishers Weekly
For its 20th anniversary, this ubiquitous classic gets the pop-up treatment, retaining Seuss's buoyant text and original illustrations. Wide flaps containing pop-up vignettes fold down toward readers, alternating with dramatic and impressive full-spread landscapes. Carter's pop-ups capably amplify the message about finding balance when life overwhelms: an erratic, multistory pop-up house teeters above, as the small protagonist can be seen riding an elephant (“with banner flip-flapping”) down below and scoring a basket at the very top. This edition of this graduation-time favorite is likely to pop up in dorm rooms come fall. Up to age 3. (Mar.)

LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss’s long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot’s Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates.

My son is 21 months at the moment and he is really into pop-up books right now. This book is very inspirational but alot of words to keep him interested at the moment. But it's a great book to have in your library collection for sure. I added Trucks and Bedtime Bugs as the top books to get for his age. It's quick and to the point and he can interact with the book especially trucks.

I purchased the pop-up version of this book because what kid did NOT love pop-ups growing up! My girls are fairly young, 3 and 2. I think this a cute gift for an elementary school graduate. My girls LOVED the pop-up version but I guess at the end of the day, it did put them to sleep! I do not regret my purchase but will absolutely giving this out as a graduation gift.
