This will become an all-time favorite read-aloud! What every parent wants to say— and what every child wants to hear. There's nothing you want your child to know more than what this charming book sings in lyrical, romping lines—lines that will tie your heart to your child's and wrap you both up in the love of God and the supremest dream we all have to know. My daughter and I were so smitten with it that we read it twice right away!

It gives parents a tool to share with little ones the hope that we have in Jesus.

Ellen Finstad, Aug 17, 2020

I love this new book for this very reason. It gives parents a tool to share with little ones the hope that we have in Jesus. This picture book can help us communicate that though we are excited for the future and full of big dreams for our kids, in the end, we humbly pray and hope that they love and trust Jesus first of all.⁣... continue reading

 

This book might just be my current favorite children's book!

Sarah Poling, Aug 18, 2020

What I like about the book:

• appealing rhyme and the rhythm it develops, making it appealing to ALL ages.
• Hardcover book in the style of the "I can Read books" of my childhood like Sammy the Seal, Danny and the Dinosaur, and more modern Dr. Seuss Hardback books. Thick nice pages inside, make it a book that will endure a family with many children. It feels good. Right sized as well.
• Illustrations- the pages are fun, busy, and the characters and items are a bit silly or quirky, but it adds to the appeal.... continue reading

 

Well-loved for years to come!

Renee Young, Aug 15, 2020

Melissa Kruger has written a fun, poetic, and timeless book. This is a great resource for starting gospel conversations with your children in a natural and casual way. This is the Christian equivalent to Dr. Seuss’ “Oh, The Places You Go” except in this book, the readers are left with the hope of Jesus.... continue reading

“Wonderful!”

I great book about keeping Jesus the center of our life.

“Better version of Oh the Places You’ll Go!”

I’ve seen the idea of having your children’s teachers sign “Oh the Places You’ll Go” and giving it to your children. This is the Christian book for that idea!

This is a favorite to read to my children. It highlights that they could do anything here on earth, but the most important part is loving Jesus. I tear up reading it every single time. So beautifully written and perfectly displays my heart toward my children.

“Love this little book!”

This is one of my most favorite books to read to children. I purchased a copy to read to my grandson and then one for a friend to read to her grandchildren. Such a sweet, inspiring book.

“Great children’s book!”

I got a bulk order of these for my classroom end of the year gift to my students. The kids and the parents loved them!

“Wonderful book”

This book was a Christmas gift for our 3 year old granddaughter. At our following visit 3 months later it's still a favorite book that she wants to hear every night!

“I cry every time I read it!”

(Review written for 'Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know (Keepsake Edition)')

Just read this book to my 8-month-old for the first time and choked up (again) as I neared the end. My 3-year-old and 4-year-old love this book as well! They are always sucked in to the pictures and the dreams of what they could be in the future, but my heart and my prayer is that all my children would grow to know and love the Lord. That they would delight in his will & walk in his ways! This keepsake version makes a great baby shower gift but I could do without the cover - it's hard to get the book in and out.

“Encourage and Celebrate Christ and Your Kids”

(Review written for 'Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know (Keepsake Edition)')

How can you share with your kids what you really care about? The Keepsake Edition of Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know by Melissa B. Kruger is the perfect way to encourage and celebrate Christ and your kids.

Where You Go, I Want You to Know is a wonderful rhyming book by Melissa B. Kruger that shares with your kids your biggest dream: for them love and follow Jesus. The illustrations by Isobel Lundie are colorful and delightful.

Encourage and Celebrate Christ and Your Kids

The original hardback book is already special, but what makes this keepsake edition standout is an elegantly designed slipcase and 16 illustrated extra pages for comments, messages, and photos. This gives you the ability to personalize the book while also giving it an extra layer of protection and a beautiful presentation.

This keepsake edition is the perfect encouragement gift for the start of grade school or as a celebratory graduation gift. It will be treasured by your kids as you remind them about the call to treasure Christ above all.

I received a media copy of Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know (Keepsake Edition) and this is my honest review.

“Beautiful Truth Filled book!”

(Review written for 'Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know (Keepsake Edition)')

Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know (Keepsake Edition) by Melissa B Kruger is a beautiful rhyming storybook, that points children to Jesus.
The book I received is the Keepsake Edition, which is a hardcover book, it includes a wonderful sturdy slipcase, as well as extra pages in the book for written comments, personalized messages, and special photos.
There is also a pouch at the end to keep important notes, or letters.

Kids are always dreaming of who they will be when they grow up. This book encourages children to dream, but also shares your biggest dream for your children: “ And, whatever you do, wherever you start, I pray you love Jesus with all of your heart.”
I sobbed as I read this book aloud to my children.
Such beautiful and truth filled words!

My children enjoyed the colourful and fun illustrations found inside.

I love how the book encourages children to dream, yet also doesn’t shy away from trials we may face in life: suggesting that sometimes we can win or lose, and also may feel happy or sad.

This has quickly become one of my most favourite children’s book, and I look forward to reading it every time I have the chance! ❤️

I think this book would make a beautiful gift for a baby shower, graduation, or anything in between.

It has the potential to open up a large variety of discussion topics, from anything to careers, travelling, emotions, culture, language, and most importantly the Gospel of Jesus!
I highly recommend this for all readers 📚✨

“Well-Made and Thoughtful Book”

(Review written for 'Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know (Keepsake Edition)')

This edition is such a well made and thoughtful gift. I love the envelope in the back to store keepsakes, the spot for family and friends to write notes, the "About Me" section, and the fact that this is larger than the first edition. This would make such a lovely baby gift! So thankful for this book :)

“Beautiful In Words & Design”

(Review written for 'Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know (Keepsake Edition)')

This book is such a beautiful one in design and words. Kruger really captures the heart of Christian parents and their ultimate desire and goals for their children young and old, which is to love and know Christ. This special keepsake edition would be the perfect birthday gift or baby shower gift. You could write a prayer for your child in it for them to have to cherish for years to come.
