Believing You Can Is the First Step In Accomplishing Your Dreams

Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! Teaches Children To Reach For the Stars!

Oh, the Thinks You Can Think, by Dr. Seuss is one of the best children’s books available for stimulating your child’s imagination. I rate it one of the best because it teaches children that their dreams are possible and attainable. This is a book I read with my own daughter as she was growing up. A book she loves to this day. If you cannot afford to purchase this book, borrow a copy of it from your local library.

Oh, the Thinks You Can Think! By Dr. Seuss is an excellent book to start reading to, or with your child, as early as possible. It is never too early for children to start learning to use their imaginations and to think about what they would like to accomplish and how they might go about achieving their dreams.

Reading with your children also helps build their vocabularies in a way that is fun for them and at the same time gives both you and your children good quality time together. Spend some time discussing the book with them as well. This is a book that I firmly believe will be beneficial in preparing your child for school, or you can add it to your own curriculum if you are home schooling.

You might think (no pun intended) that a review of a Dr. Seuss book is not needed, but you would be surprised how many people are unfamiliar with Dr. Seuss books. This particular book, Oh the Thinks You Can Think, is one I especially love. I ‘think’ it encourages children, and anyone who reads it to children, to realize people are often limited only by their own imaginations.

This book, Oh the Thinks You Can Think, is great for stimulating the imagination and creative talents all children have. There is often no limit to what a person can achieve if they can think it and imagine it. That is the first step in any endeavor. I think that is the main theme or message in this book. Almost everyone who is successful in anything first had a dream and imagined her or himself doing whatever it is they are now doing.

Sharing this book with a child, reading it to them, or with them, and discussing the many possibilities it fosters, helps open their minds to new ideas and encourages them to use their imagination. This book encourages children to dream and to reach for the stars. It helps them to believe that anything is possible if they work hard enough to achieve it.

Follow Up With Practical Know How

Of course the next step after encouraging a child’s imagination is to encourage them to learn the answers to any questions they may have. To learn how things work and why they work the way they do. Public libraries, as well as computer search engines, are great sources of information to learn these things. There is a wealth of information available online nowadays about almost anything you can imagine. It is a shame not to show our children how to access it and use it to their advantage.
