How a rousing read can raise your child's spirits

Trust the good old Dr Seuss to prescribe the perfect pick-me-up for your child

The world's best optimistic book for children is Oh, The Places You'll Go! by Dr Seuss. It's a bold, funny book about a boy who strikes out into the big wide world. It's a strange world, full of odd and sometimes scary creatures, which the boy has to deal with alone. Dr Seuss doesn't mince his words, and warns the adventurer: "When you're alone, there's a very good chance, you'll meet things that scare you right out of your pants." The hero discovers that life is never plain sailing, but he also learns to overcome setbacks and sally forth bravely. By the end of the book, Seuss has this to say: "And will you succeed? Yes! You will indeed! Ninety-eight-and-three-quarters-percent guaranteed. Kid, you'll move mountains."

Every child should read this book, or have it read to her. THere's even a version for reading to babies in the womb, called Oh Baby, The Places You'll Go!
