We all know this is a great book to buy for a graduation present. Let me share a little tip with you, though. Buy this book for your child and take it to the teachers they've had. Let each teacher write a note in it for them. My son is in 3rd grade and my twin daughters are in 1st grade. I purchased three copies of this book and will be having every teacher sign it at the end of the year. I will give it to each child at their graduation party. Can you imagine receiving such a gift? I loved this idea so much that I had to share it. What a blessing to our children and what a way to build up their self worth as they prepare for college!

I got this book for both of my children. I am having their teacher's sign the book and plan to keep it and give it to them as a gift when they graduate high school!

I love this book, and planned to buy one for each of my kids so their teachers could sign it. However, when I ordered them it limits you to 3 per order, and I have 4 kids. Plus when I bought all 3 with another item I earned free shipping; so now I need to either stop at a store and hope they have it or pay for shipping on one book.

What a Wonderful Book

The first time I read this book was in college. One of my professors read it on the first day of class and emphasized that we can all do great things in life so long as we have the drive. I looked for this book online and found that a lot of the used books have descriptions that read "writing on the first page", "inscription on first page", etc...this seemed to me to be a testament of this book that people enjoy it so much and find it worthwhile enough to gift it over and over again throughout the years. I am purchasing this book for my little sister for her high school graduation and I hope that she will enjoy it as much as I have. This is one of the most meaningful and wonderful Dr. Seuss books I have ever read! Highly recommended for children through adults!

I have always given this book to high school graduates. Not only did they grow up either being read to or reading Dr. Seuss but all of his books have a message of hope and inspiration to achieve. Graduation is a huge milestone and the gift of Oh, the Places You'll Go! is my attempt to let them know they can do anything if they put their mind to it...the possibilities are endless. This book should be a must for every child to show them their potential and special worth.
