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!”
