Reviews - What do customers think about Oh, Baby, the Places You'll Go! ?
Adorable! May 20, 2008
I got this when I was pregnant with my son, and I loved it. I especially loved the encouragement to read to him while I was pregnant. I was amazed to see that some reviewers gave it low stars for being too small. Since when does that matter?
And I guess you have to be a Seuss fan, because there are a lot of references to Seuss characters, but I loved that. Thanks for a great book!
Oh, Baby the Places You'll Go! May 10, 2008
Me wife got this book from a friend who's name was Brook. Read it and breed it and enjoy she said while she cooked; So we got really busy one-sy, two-sy, and three-sy all in one nightsy we did. You will be bornsy about nine monthsy after we sealed the deedsy, and daddy slept wellski after we mades they I did.
I shall read this book to an embryo in utero you see, and maybe I'll do it while's eating for free. Your brain will be insane with all the verbage you'll hear. Soon you'll bounce while I bald and tell bad jokes in your ear. Those wrinkles I receive you'll give me for free. One-ski, Two-ski, I see more-ski before I forty, OH DEAR. My dad-ski warned me of all the trouble you'll cause. He said, "You'll get a child who will grey and shave you like me." I said, "A, I'm not grey, but I occasionally take a rolaids before I take my wife for a jump in the Hay, Hay Hay."
In the end the book claims you'll be smarter and a better farter if I read to you this day. I'll do it I say, just keep you little pee pee at bay, and promise not to spray....
Bottom Line: Great little book. Cute read it to your child in utero and watch the brain grow. I had to use the word embryo with utero, but your childs not an embryo.
Not by Seuss, nice prose, VERY SMALL Apr 30, 2008
While not written by Seuss, the prose is jaunty and fun. However, the book is TINY! It's definitely a "gift book" size and not something you'll be able to pick up and read to your vision-impaired newborn. I'll buy Cat in the Hat next time.
Great pregnancy gift! Apr 7, 2008
Oh, Baby the Places You'll Go makes a great gift for expectant mothers and fathers. The forward to the books explains how reading to babies in utero affects them. The story takes bits and pieces of Dr. Seuss favorites and combines them to create an adorable story about what lies ahead for the new baby and the anticipation that parents are feeling. It might even bring a tear to your eye!
A treasure to "invest" in ... Mar 9, 2008
I first bought and read this book (in utero) to my first born, my daughter. I also read it, in utero, to my second child, my son, 3 years later. This book was a beautiful way for me, as the father, to connect to my child in utero. I also found it to be a way for my wife and I to build intimacy while she was carrying our child. As I read over her stomach, the bond was beginning - both with her and my child.
Other reviews I have read on this book have said that it serves no use once the baby is born. Just the other night my daughter and I found the book. I told my daughter, who is now 4 1/2 years old, that I had read this book to her when she was in Mommy's stomach. She said, "awww, Daddy, can you read it to me again?" I found it to be such a wonderful reminder of that special moment that I had, looking forward to her birth.
I highly recommend this book and I continue to give it to FATHERS as a way for them to begin that bonding time with their expecting wife and child to come.
