Editorial Reviews

Review

“Her children are so serious… and so unflappable… that they convey not just hope for the future, but a sense of manifest destiny.” — Publishers Weekly starred review

“Sweet but not saccharine and singsong but not forced, Martin's text is one that will invite rereadings as it affirms parental wishes for children while admirably keeping child readers at its heart.”
Kirkus starred review

From School Library Journal

PreS—Childhood is a time full of potential, and Martin celebrates this promise in this work. The general premise of Dr. Seuss's classic, Oh, The Places You'll Go is pared down to elegant simplicity. "Will you stand up for good/By saving the day?/Or play a song only you/Know how to play?" While the rhyming text falters a bit in spots, the word choice overall is spare, inspiring, and accessible to preschoolers. Children are encouraged to be kind, clever, and bold, to take care of the small, and to help things grow. Martin's oil paintings have the same retro, mid-century feel as her other illustrations, with large-eyed children of many ethnicities playing, gardening, and sharing together. VERDICT A go-to gift for new parents, and a potential bedtime favorite for many children.—Martha Link Yesowitch, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, NC --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Children's Story
By Ally J on March 16, 2019
This is a lovely children's book with pretty illustrations and a great message for children. I got it for a friend's baby shower who asked for books for their soon to be daughter. I think this will be a sweet book they will appreciate. I got the hard cover and it arrived in great condition. It does have a book jacket that is a little flimsy and I fear will end up lost or tattered eventually and the hard cover doesnt match the book jacket. So that's my only disappointment. Still a 5 star purchase!

1.0 out of 5 stars A Dull Lifeless Picture Book Written For Adults To Tell Little Ones What They Are Expected To Be!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 27, 2018
That thoughtful gift for a friends child a christmas present, wanting something a bit special i was happy to pay a bit more after reading that this book was a New York best seller and all the other great reveiws i thought i had the perfect gift to give.
I couldn't of been more wrong, this book isn't for the child its written for adults to enjoy and its their vision not the childs id even go as far to say its child unfriendly theres not one child through out the book that has a smile on their face even the pictures inside are so dated and pages so thin how this book got to be a New York best seller is laughable. There is no story to this book for children its a question book the clue is in the book title The Wonderful Things You Will Be .
