Author information

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.

Several years after the death of her husband, Ted (Dr Seuss), Audrey Geisel approved this very cute adaptation of the 1990 Dr Seuss book 'Oh, The Places You'll Go!'

The new book is a small-format, hard-cover book that's been written specifically to be read to babies in utero.

It begins ....

'Baby, oh, baby,
the places you'll go!
The worlds you will visit!
The friends you will know!'

... and ends ...

'It's a scrumptulous world
and it's ready to greet you,
And as for myself ...
well ...
I can't wait to meet you!'


The book would make a lovely gift for a mum or dad-to-be, perhaps when they announce their pregnancy. I recently gave a copy to my sister who's pregnant with her second child.
