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


Oh Baby, the Places You'll Go!: A Book to Be Read in Utero was given to me as a gift early on in my pregnancy (thank you, Katherine!) but it wasn't until last night that I finally read it. Artfully adapted almost entirely from Dr. Seuss' (Theodor Geisel) work, this book is a great gift for all expectant parents - and a decent introduction to the wonderful world of Dr. Seuss, a world I had almost entirely forgotten.

The story is sweet and the design is classic-Seuss. I really enjoyed reading it aloud and imagining my little one listening from inside. I'll confess I got a little misty as I read the closing lines to my swollen belly:

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