A playful twist on Dr. Seuss's OH THE PLACES YOU'LL GO
- the perfect graduation for young people setting sail, from grown-ups who can't believe it's time for them to go.
Remember how, back in the delivery room, you swore to teach that kid everything they'd need to know? And now, wham.... the same child appears to be packing a suitcase. And what with the whirl of being a parent, you never got around to all the wisdom-sharing.
JUST A ZILLION THINGS BEFORE YOU GO is a make-good on all those promises -- sorta. It mixes precious safety tips (it's not nagging, it's love) with inspiration. It'll watch over a wonderful kid along their way.
HUGH O'NEILL's work in media spans life as a book editor at Doubleday, Random House and The New York Times, a television writer, a commentator for NPR, and a magazine columnist and editor. His first three books celebrate the humor and heroism of family life. His newest publications -- PUT UP THE HOOP SOONER and JUST A ZILLION THINGS BEFORE YOU GO -- speak to parents in the middle of the sweet spin-cycle of raising kids.
