A perennial favorite, Dr. Seuss's wonderfully wise graduation speech is the perfect send-off for children starting out in the world, be they nursery school, high school, or college grads! 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.'"

Comments about Oh, the Places You'll Go!:
First saw the book mentioned on Pinterest. A graduation gift from a father to his daughter.Purchased thirteen years prior to her graduation he had teachers and coaches sign it over the course of her education.
This inspired me when looking for my grandsons baptism gift( more a philosophical than religious point of view, but still very appropriate).
The book is beautifully presented with lots of colourful pages and a poetic and inspirational text , a read to be enjoyed by young and old.
