What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Lovely effects!"
    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Straight On"

    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!

    "Great Classic Seuss"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Oh, the Places You'll Go! to be better than the print version?

    No, not better, just different. I still love the pictures in the printed version - a great gift for graduates.


    What other book might you compare Oh, the Places You'll Go! to and why?

    Oh the Thinks You Can Think


    What does John Lithgow bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Love his expressions.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Dr. Seuss' outrageous and hilarious pictures and rhymes give surprisingly realistic advice to young people as they set out on their own.

    Fabulous book, spectacular performance.

    Exhileratingly read. If this performance doesn't put a smile on your face and a skip in your step then nothing will. Don't hesitate to download this short book. Great message, great performance, great music .... GREAT!

    "Not bad..."

    But then again, for Dr. Seuss not that good either. Though, I'd be surprised if your kids didn't like it nevertheless as it's still written by Seuss while Lithgow does a great job with the narration.

    I was impressed and will definitely do this again. I wish I could get all of my books on audio book. I definitely need this for my textbooks I have ordered for school.

    What disappointed you about Oh, the Places You'll Go!?

    I paid for it and I can't get it to play on my computer. So they charged me anyway and will not refund me my money.
