Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

by Dr. Seuss

read March 2009

oh-the-places-you-will-goThis is my favorite Dr. Seuss book of all time.  It also happens to be the last book published before his death.  The book is so inspirational.  I’ve seen it suggested as a graduation gift on many websites.  I would totally agree.  The first verses of the book:

       Congratulations!

       Today is your day.

       You’re off to Great Places!

       You’re off and away! 

The words of the book guide you through the ups and downs of life.  About all of the great things that you can do.  But it also has verses like this:

       seussartExcept when you don’t.

       Because, sometimes you won’t.

       I’m sorry to say so

       but sadly it’s true

       that Bang-ups

       and Hang-ups

       can happen to you.

This is just an all around good book.  If you have never read it, go out and buy a copy or check out a copy at your library.

  1. We have so many Dr. Suess books lying around that I have no idea if this one is in the house or not. I’ll have to do some checking and find out.
