Just for Fun Challenge: Oh The Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss



"You’ll be on your way up!
You’ll be seeing great sights!
You’ll join the high fliers who soar to high heights."

This June, I wanted to read one of my favorite inspirational books, Oh the Places You'll Go. Around this time of year, you see this book placed prominently on book displays in bookstores and school stores as suggestions for presents to recent grads. It chronicles the things that grads of all ages can do if they put their minds to it.

"Except when you don’t.
Because, sometimes, you won’t.

I’m sorry to say so but, sadly, it’s true that Bang-ups and Hang-ups can happen to you."

My favorite thing about this book is that it doesn't make it seem like life will be easy for this point on. It describes some of the ups and downs that we all face life's path. Oddly (and refreshingly), I can still find inspiration in this story even though I had my last graduation 3 years ago!

  1. I love this book! I used it as the guest book for my daughters graduation open house - plan to for my sons as well! It has always been a favorite at our house.
