"Don't be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it's not 'Climb Every Mountain,' kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting. Seuss' familiar pajama-clad hero is up to the challenge, and his odyssey is captured vividly....Seuss' message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act,' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'" (Booklist)
My 5-6 year-old son loves the narration. We have the book, but as English is not my first language, I wanted a good narration. And this is a very good one, very entertaining, with nice sound effects.
The book is pretty short. What I've done several times is I open the book, put the audio, and move through the pages while it's being narrated.
John Lithgow is reading a book by Dr. Seuss! What more could you ask for?
This book is a book that I have purchased and given to people many times. I have given this book to children, as well as people well over their retirement age! It contains wisdom that is concentrated, precise, concise, simple, and gets easily absorbed by your mind. It helps to quickly "ground" and encourage anyone. The book is "short and sweet" as they say! Now that I've discovered this spectacular audio version of the book, I expect that I will wind up purchasing many audio copies of the book as well! This audio version is the best that I've ever heard. Such a blessing to be able to listen to this book while you do something else physically (like for those automobile trips or commutes. This helps the book's subject matter to enter the conscious and subconscious mind in a much more enjoyable and refreshing manner.
All the things said have been within me. It hits my issues straight on and lets me know I can move past them to my 98 & 3/4 % guarantee for success! Thank you Dr Seuss!
I think that Dr Seuss' works stand fr themselves as works of art. This is one of my absolute favourites. Adding John Lithgow to the narration was just sheer genius!!! I have listened to it again and again and ell continue to do so. Great for the adult and kid alike.
I remember this book from my childhood and still enjoy it to this day I got this book as a gift for my high school graduation. It speaks to me on a certain level and tells me that no matter what low points I come across, things will eventually turn up. You're off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting! So get on your way! Oh! The places you'll go!
