About the Book-Oh, The Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss
Listen to the story here.
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.’”

What this book teaches-Hope
My review of the book: Rhyming with silly words and pictures to match that silliness, Dr. Seuss is hands down a treasured author in our home. This book reminds children that THEY CAN DO ANYTHING they set their minds and hearts to!
