This book is a great gift for some graduates.

The one who will be receiving it from me has lead a somewhat bumpy and hard life so far. he has fallen off of the tracks a few times and lost he way. With some recent help, he has found his way back into the race of life and is actually graduating a year early from HS.

My graduate takes gifts like these to heart and I know he will remember this one for years to come. Dr. Suess's words in this book are so inspiring for a boy like him. The Dr says it perfectly when he writes "You'll look up and down streets. Look 'em over with care. About some you will say, 'I don't choose to go there.' With your head full of brains and your shoes fun of feet, you're too smart to go down any not-so-good street."

These words touch home with this boy. His life has been full of choices, some that were not good ones. Now he has the knowledge and the brains to stear clear of these places and watch what he does and where he chooses to go. He has the knowledge to CHOOSE right and has the knowledge of what he should do.

I know for a fact that if I got a dictionary or something of that sort, it would be used even less than a book like this. I know, because I got one and it is still sitting on my bookshelf and hasn't been opened since the day I got it.

Students these days use the computer for everything they need, like looking up words in a electronic dictionary. It is so much easier and so much faster.

All I am trying to say is: when looking at something, please look at all sides of the situation. What might be worthless to some, is the best gift others could get.

The first thing that I felt when reading your review was that I spent weeks thinking of a really great gift for my graduate and that getting this was like getting him garbage; just something that he can throw away. When, in reality, it might be something that he keeps forever.

    Highly Recommended

    Dr. Sesus Oh, The Places You'll Go, shows and gives children multiple ideas about all the different places they can go. Not all are good, but not all are bad either. It shows the reader that even when you are at your lowest, there are always other places you can go explore. It gives the reader an idea of what you can expect wherever you are, what you might want or not want to do. It encourages the reader and produces excitement, with its choice of perspective, rhyming, constructive drawings and coloring. Overall, this is a good book, I recommend it to children 8 or under.

    Effective Parenting Tool

    The journey from childhood to adulthood is laced with rough and smooth roads, be prepared. Think it is a book that adults should read and re-read as they venture through life.

    For anyone who's going places!

    This book is a great gift for anyone who plans on going places. College graduates as well as kindergardeners will enjoy this book that describes the ups and downs of live in a way that only Dr. Suess could.

    Not Just for Kids

    What a glorious book/message. I got it for my daughter who is going away to college. It touches all those experiences that she will have (both happy and sad) out there in the world. There are so many things a parent wants to tell their child about those experiences and how to deal with them. This books says what a Mom wants to say--only so much better.
