Editorial Reviews

While other graduate greeters unfurl highfalutin' thoughts or angst over career plans, Boynton entertains us with bubbles and bears and ice-covered peaks. Her delightfully comic creatures convey ever so perfectly the feelings of buoyancy and relief that Graduation Day brings. Clever rhymes that lift the spirit.

This book is wonderful, and anyone who knows someone getting ready to graduate from high school should really check it out! The words should be an inspiration to us all....

I really love this book and it's such a great inspiration for an adult like me. I am gonna give my copy to a charity for some children out there. Maybe this will make them smile during the holiday season. Later on I definately will get another copy for myself to keep!!

Behind all the goofy faces and simple rhymes in this sweet book is a very real, very sweet sentiment of pride and support that any friend or family member will be glad you shared with them. It's for that special successful person, young or old, especially those entering a new phase of life.

A books for graduates of all ages and any kind of graduation.   It is cute and written by author Boynton who writes mostly for children.   I am not sure the reason she wrote this but compared to the Dr. Seuss book “Oh The Places You Will Go”,  “Yay, You” Loses steam at the end of the book.  The art is cute and resembles most of Boynton’s books for children. I wish I could say more about it.  Unfortunately I keep comparing it to Seuss.   This was  a nice try but I do not feel the enthusiasm.

This book came to me while sitting in JFK airport, making a life changing decision to stay or leave NYC. I ended up staying after a quick trip home to the Midwest. I was 23 when I found it so it's evidence that it applies to the young as well as the adult. I also gave this to my friend who graduated college. She adored it. This book is worth the purchase for any graduate or someone who needs a reminder that the world is theirs.

This is one of my 2 year old's favorite books. We have to read it to him almost every night. Great book!

Okay, maybe I shouldn't admit this, but I am a Barnes and Noble employee, and when the store is slow, I occasionally sneak into the childrens section to read the new books. This one is great. Lots of fun for ages 1 to 100.

I just read this book in a bookstore and had to buy it. It is clearly based on the Dr. Seuss classic 'Oh The Places You Will Go.' Like the Seuss book, it appeals to high school and college graduates, but it can be enjoyed by young children as well. As a professor, I plan to give a copy to all my students earning PhDs, and I also just ordered a copy for my 14 month old boy. Wonderful illustrations. A bit more 'cutesy' than the Seuss classic, but ever-so-worthy of comparison. I always suspected that Boynton is a genius when it comes to translating the simple joys of life to people of all ages. 'Yay, You!' proves it. I love every book Boynton has penned (and inked), even when I read them over and over and over again (as a good father must).
