Publisher's Description

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. And parents and caregivers love to encourage and support them.

But for Christian parents, their greatest aspiration for their children, their dream of all dreams, is that whatever their kids do and wherever they go, they will love and follow Jesus.

As children embark on life’s journey with all their potential and aspirations, express to them your biggest dream with this beautiful illustrated rhyming children’s book.

As well as teaching children about the only thing that really matters in life, this book also reminds parents that telling their kids about Jesus is more important than anything else.

Makes a wonderful gift for a wide range of children—from 3-year-olds to 8-year-olds—for birthdays, Christmas or even graduations!

Editorial Reviews

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! -- Ann Voskamp (Author of New York Times bestsellers The Broken Way and One Thousand Gifts; mother of 7)

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. -- Ed Drew (Director, Faith in Kids)

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. -- Sarah Poling

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. -- Renee Young

This books is so lovely. The illustrations and rhymes just flood the imagination of where our little ones may go in their life. This book is a sweet prayer to share with our little ones, but also would make a beautiful graduation gift. A prayer as grown children go off to college, letting them know that wherever they go we support them and pray they know Jesus’ love. -- Kayla Alonso

Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know is also a fun book to read aloud with the whole family. The rhyming and rhythm of this book is wonderful--words just roll off of your tongue in perfect cadence. -- Monica Huyser

With rhyming words and vibrant illustrations, Kruger and Lundie have crafted a book that you will want to read and your children will want to see. -- Aaron Lee

What I love about Melissa Kruger’s book is that it plays with all the fun of “What do you to be when you grow up?” while getting at the heart of the bigger issue. She imagines, in a Dr. Suessian cadence, what kids might become as they grown up: Singers? Chefs? Athletes? Who knows! It’s so exciting to think about, isn’t it? -- Thea Rosenburg

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! -- Jennie Allen (Bestselling author; Founder and Visionary of IF:Gathering)

Oh the places our kids may go! Melissa writes a sweet book to read to your kids that will inspire and encourage their imagination. And wherever they go, Melissa hopes they'll love Jesus. With precision and simplicity, she guides us to him. -- Trillia Newbell (Author, God's Very Good Idea and If God Is For Us)

Like the best books for little kids, this one combines playful illustrations with a simple, powerful message. We will definitely be reading this book to our young children, letting them know of our biggest dream for them—that they know God’s love and follow Jesus all their days. -- Kevin and Trisha DeYoung (Kevin is Senior Pastor at Christ Covenant Church, Matthews, North Carolina)

Wherever You Go, I Want You To Know captures so well the heart of any Christian parent. What matters most is not what our kids grow up to do, but Who they grow up to know. This is a book parents will want to read often to their children; and the whimsical rhymes and inviting illustrations will make it a favorite for kids too. Get this book for the youngsters—or the young parents—in your life! -- Brett McCracken (Senior Editor, The Gospel Coalition; Author, Uncomfortable: The Awkward and Essential Challenge of Christian Community)

A bouncy text with illustrations to match! A book about the dreams every Christian parent has for their child—including the biggest dream of all. -- Bob Hartman (Author, The Prisoners, The Earthquake, and the Midnight Song and The Bible App For Kids)

Wherever You Go, I Want You to Know encourages readers both young and old to chase after King Jesus with all of their hearts. In a world that prioritizes earthly accomplishments and academic pedigrees, this message is exactly what I want my children hearing before their heads hit their pillows at night. -- Hunter Beless (Founder, The Journeywomen Podcast; mother of three)

Having loved Dr Seuss since childhood, I am excited to share this book with my grandchildren. This title will inspire many conversations. I love how it values all paths children might take. I love how the Kingdom will come through children starting their big dreams with Jesus. -- Jo Hood (CEO, mainly music)

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.⁣ -- Ellen Finstad
