In this joyous ode to life, Dr. Seuss addresses graduates of all ages, from nursery school to medical school, and gives them the get-up-and-go to move mountains with the unrivaled exuberance and charm that have made Dr. Seuss's books favorites for years.

A perfect gift for graduation, Oh, The Places You'll Go is an inspirational read with a message that reminds it's reader that today is your day! The world is wide open and full of possibilities. No mountain is to high to climb. You're on your way! Today is your day! Go out and make the most of your life. Set your goals, and accomplish them. Nothing is out of your reach. 

An inspirational read for all ages. This is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books. I love that this is a book for readers both young and old. Kids will enjoy the message geared towards them in this book, and adults will see the real message from Dr. Seuss. "TODAY is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way!"

This is a book I purchased for each of my kids, and plan to give them when they graduate. As the end of each school years comes to an end, I ask each of their teachers to write a little note for my kids, and include it in each of their books. Not only will they have they have a book that inspires them, they'll have a book full of post it notes from each of their teachers with an inspirational note inside. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
