Ages 3 and up
I realize that Dr. Seuss may not be the first person you think of when looking for spiritual books for kids, but this charming story is so packed full of life's little truths that it certainly deserves a mention.
It is beautifully written, easy to read, fun, and filled with the usual crazy Dr Seuss landscapes and creatures. From choosing your path and positive thinking to dealing with slumps and loneliness, all wrapped up in a perfect 10 minute bedtime story. By the end of the book you really do feel like you could move mountains.
There are a few books on my kids' shelves that I'll be hanging onto for myself once they grow up - this is number one! I think that all adults and kids could do with a Dr Seuss style pep talk every now and again.
"You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting.
So... get on your way!"
Have a wonderful week.
