Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!
I have a favourite book, a book I read regularly, a book I share with children and recommend to adults. That book is the last Dr. Seuss book to be published before his death - Oh, the Places You'll Go!
Why would a grown woman be reading a children's classic? Theodor Seuss Geisel, aka Dr. Seuss, may be best known for his Cat in the Hat stories but a closer look at his quirky, rhyming tales will reveal a far deeper meaning in the majority of them.
Written in the second person and future tense, Oh, the Places You'll Go! is a story addressed to graduating students of all ages as they move from pre-school to Primary, Secondary to University, school student to working adult, even grown-ups as they take on new challenges in later life.

Yes! You will, indeed!

The bright, light and lyrical nature of the story, with the colourful illustrations, makes Oh, The Places You'll Go! a book you can pick up time and time again, either to share it with someone else or simply to remind yourself that "...YOU are the guy who'll decide where you go."
