A miniature edition of Dr. Seuss's last book, full of inspiring ideas! A perfect gift for Christmas, or for anyone leaving school or college or otherwise 'moving on' as well as for children. 'You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So...get on your way!' An inspirational little book that is big on ideas and advice on how to cope with the tricky situations that life flings at us. Decisions to take, muddles to make, slumps to get out of - whatever the problem, the good Dr. Seuss has an answer! Follow our hero as he navigates his way across a challenging landscape fraught with dangers such as howling Hakken-Kraks, until he finally makes it through to the other side. A must-have for anyone who is making changes and moving on, as well as a great rhyming read for younger children.
Inspirational yet honest, and always rhythmically rollicking, Oh, the Places You'll Go!
is a perfect sendoff for children, 1 to 100, entering any new phase of their lives. Kindergartners, graduate students, newlyweds, newly employeds--all will glean shiny pearls of wisdom about the big, bountiful future. The incomparable Dr. Seuss rejoices in the potential everyone has to fulfill their wildest dreams: "You'll be on your way up! / You'll be seeing great sights! / You'll join the high fliers / who soar to high heights." At the same time, he won't delude the starry-eyed upstart about the pitfalls of life: "You can get all hung up / in a prickle-ly perch. / And your gang will fly on. / You'll be left in a Lurch."
But fear not! Dr. Seuss, with his inimitable illustrations and exhilarating rhymes, is convinced ("98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed") that success is imminent. As long as you remember "to be dexterous and deft. And NEVER mix up your right foot with your left," things should work out. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter
