'Wherever you go,whatever you do, I want you know I'm so proud of you.' In this warm and heartfelt story from the bestselling creators of All Are Welcome, follow a group of families whose preschool children are finally heading to 'big school'. As all the kids prepare for their big graduation day, their parents look back on how their little ones have grown and promise them that they will always be loved. That they will always belong. That wherever they go and whoever they become, their families will always be proud of them.

Perfect for fans of Oh, The Places You'll Go! and Guess How Much I Love You - Wherever You Go is a hopeful, soulful celebration of the highs and lows of growing up, and the power of a parent's unconditional love. A must-have for school and library shelves, and wonderful gift to share with young children as they prepare to take on the world.



Wherever You Go revisits the same class of children readers were introduced to in All Are Welcome, but is written as if from the eyes of an adult as they watch their child grow from baby through to a school graduation.

This is somewhat problematic for children in the English education system as a graduation ceremony for nursery-aged children, although growing in popularity, is not that common; this, however, does not diminish the message of pride in the individual as the text is full of positivity and hope for the future, focusing on the unconditional love the adults in a child's life feel.

It is a shame that in such an inclusive book that there is only one larger person included - no children - and that the visually impaired child who featured in 'All Are Welcome' seems to have disappeared.
