Oh, the Places You'll Go! - Dr. Seuss

Dr. Seuss’s wonderfully wise Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is the perfect send-off for grads—from nursery school, high school, college, and beyond! 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.’” I have been read this book by so many teachers in so many classes over the years and I still love it just as much easy time. Life really is just one big balancing act that takes you to so many different places just as Dr. Seuss states so simply in the book. I would use this book in any grade level I was teaching to remind my students that they do not have to fear change. It is a good thing to embark on a new journey and start a new phase in life because there really is no limit inn the places you can go. I fully believe all students no matter the background need to be reminded that they are smart and they are capable of great things. When teachers believe in there students they create students that believe in themselves. I think this would be a wonderful book to read to your class on the first day of school to calm nerves and remind each student that they are all special and have a future far brighter than they could ever imagine.
