Oh, the Places You’ll Go!  

Dr. Seuss’s wonderfully wise Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is the perfect send-off for grads—from nursery school, high school, college, and beyond! 

From soaring to high heights and seeing great sights to being left in a Lurch on a prickle-ly perch, Dr. Seuss addresses life’s ups and downs with his trademark humorous verse and illustrations, while encouraging readers to find the success that lies within. In a starred review, Booklist notes, “Seuss’s message is simple but never sappy: life may be a ‘Great Balancing Act,’ but through it all ‘There’s fun to be done.’” A perennial favorite and a perfect gift for anyone starting a new phase in their life!

Inspirational yet honest, and always rhythmically rollicking, Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is a perfect sendoff for children, 1 to 100, entering any new phase of their lives. Kindergartners, graduate students, newlyweds, newly employeds–all will glean shiny pearls of wisdom about the big, bountiful future. The incomparable Dr. Seuss rejoices in the potential everyone has to fulfill their wildest dreams: “You’ll be on your way up! / You’ll be seeing great sights! / You’ll join the high fliers / who soar to high heights.” At the same time, he won’t delude the starry-eyed upstart about the pitfalls of life: “You can get all hung up / in a prickle-ly perch. / And your gang will fly on. / You’ll be left in a Lurch.”

But fear not! Dr. Seuss, with his inimitable illustrations and exhilarating rhymes, is convinced (“98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed”) that success is imminent. As long as you remember “to be dexterous and deft. And NEVER mix up your right foot with your left,” things should work out. (All ages) –Emilie Coulter

if you don’t like it a lot My wife wasn’t totally on board with this for a high school grad so I had to come up with an inscription to make sure it wasn’t too childish a gift for someone at a pivotal point of becoming an adult.As you grow olderand start to reflect,you’ll realize these Seuss-ismsare all quite correct.But, if you don’t like it a lot,just think,it’s the best money cardyou ever got!Stuffed with a few bucks, there’s no 18 year old that won’t…

One of my favorites! I read this book several times to my class of 5th graders every year- because I feel like it really speaks a lot about life. I work in a Title I school, where we are really focusing on getting all of our students to succeed- via whatever path they choose after high school. Many of our children had never been out of the county before this year, when we took them on a field trip across the state to a zoo. I feel like this book not only encourages them, but also kind of gives them a heads up of…
