Kids love to dream about what they might do when they grow up: jobs they might have, places they might go, people they might meet.

As children embark on life’s journey with all their potential and aspirations, use this beautifully illustrated, rhyming storybook to tell them your biggest dream - that whatever they do and wherever they go, they will love and follow Jesus.

This keepsake edition includes 16 illustrated pages for writing messages and pasting in photos, plus a pocket for keepsakes in the back. The robust slipcase means you will keep these memories safe for the long term. It's ideal for a child to take with them all the way up through school, with each successive teacher adding their own comments and encouragements.

It also makes a beautiful graduation gift for children, whether they are graduating from Kindergarten or High School!

Ann Voskamp

New York Times bestselling author of One Thousand Gifts and The Broken Way

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!

Ed Drew

What a fantastic book! The flowing poetry and vibrant artwork allow every Christian parent to tell their child what we find hard to say, but wish we could. It cuts to my heart and reminds me of the supreme value of following Christ. May many families be greatly blessed by regularly reading this book.

I wish I had this book when my kids were little! It is simple. No matter what our kids dream, we want them to love Jesus and walk with him all their lives. You'll love reading this book as a family!

Independent reviews

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

Ellen Finstad, Aug. 16, 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. 17, 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. 14, 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

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

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

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

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!”

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

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!”

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

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”

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

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!

“Love it!”

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

We love this book. It’s the things you hope and pray for your child - things we prayed over them before they were born. That whatever they become or do, they’ll know Jesus and put Him first.
It’s great to read this to share with them our heart for them.
Thanks for writing it.

“My daughter's favorite!”

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

We love this book! This book is simple enough to understand but it's like a two-edged sword to our hearts. We always plan for the future, but this book reminded us to prioritize what is important.

“It’s brilliant!”

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

This book is utterly brilliant- fun, engaging and full of wonderful truths to teach to young hearts. It helps remind us where our priorities are- that loving God is what matters, such an important thing to teach and remember! It’s not overly heavy or forced, and the repeating rhymes are so memorable that children easily pick them up. A real classic, and worth having on every bookshelf! (And not just for children- I have a copy for when I need to remember these things too!)

“Reinforcing our mission as parents”

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

This book helps us communicate to our children what our ultimate calling as parents is, to introduce our children to Jesus and our desire to see them believe in Him alone for salvation. We particularly like Seuss-style phrasing and illustrations.
