I picked up this book because the Gov. of Iowa is trying to ban it. I just want to say that I LOVE that so many people are fighting this book. Each person that comes out against it, makes dozens more pick it up. So fight your fight Gov. Kim Reynolds, make this book a best seller for YEARS to come.

Because it deserves it. It deserves to be placed in the hands of ever lost teenager, every student that feels like they are alone and scared and has no idea what to do with all the feels they are experiencing. Had I had this book decades ago, it would have been life changing.

But you don't need to be that person to appreciate this book. It doesn't need to be written for you, to be able to sit back and listen to how someone experiences life.

Maybe if as a society, we stop one starring books because they don't represent us, and instead five star them because we learned something about life that we didn't know, we wouldn't still be fighting this same tired fight.

I cried so many times throughout this story, and am so thankful that George took the chance on writing this book. It spoke to me in ways I didn't expect, about being true to myself, and living the life that is authentically me. He laid out his trauma, fears and hopes in such raw honesty. I can't even fathom the courage it took to push the publish button on this one.

Read it. Even if you aren't apart of the LGBTQIA community, read it even if you don't think you could relate to it at all. Everyone's life story is worth telling. Slip into someone else's shoes and experience life from their point of view. It's worth the ride. ( )

Honestly dont really love this book because I don’t understand what the story is supposed to be but I think Dr. Seuss is really creative and the illustrations are great.

This book is a classic and always take me back to my childhood since it was one of the only books that I enjoyed reading. I think this book is great for those who are not confident on reading and want a book to read for fun. ( )

From there to here,
from here to there,
funny things
are everywhere.
First words
One fish,
two fish,
red fish,
blue fish.
Why are they
sad and glad and bad?
I do not know.
Go ask your dad.
From there to here,
from here to there,
funny things
are everywhere.
Oh me! Oh my!
Oh me! Oh my!
What a lot
of funny things go by.
Not one of them
is like another
Don’t ask us why.
Go ask your mother.
By the light of the moon,
by the light of a star,
they walked all night
from near to far.

I would never walk.
I would take a car.
