He listened to me first,With full co [...]

    A gift on my high school graduation something I will always treasure. It answers all of life's questions for a young one trying to decide their future!As a children's book, the rhyming and cartoon-like at helps keep focused attention. But it's the words that are so simple, yet so evocative in their minds. Certain stanzas stay with you. People quote it both in fun and in sincerity when thinking about what to do.It's books like this that help children figure out that reading is not just educationa [...]

    "It's opener therein the wide open air.Out there things can happenand frequently doto people as brainyand footsy as you.And then things start to happen,don't worry. Don't stew.Just go right along.You'll start happening too."-Dr. SeussI had never read this book from cover to cover, but I was familiar with it from quotes used in speeches and publications. The dean of our college read us a passage to close the graduation ceremony, and even then I did not appreciate how appropriate that passage was [...]

Which, normally, would make me run in the opposite direction.But.OH! THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!Yo'll be on your way up!You'll be seeing great sights!You'll join the high flierswho soar to great heights.Yep. That's exactly what I want for my young'uns!Wherever you fly, you'll be best of the [...]

    All aboard!!!FASTEN YOUR SEATBELTS!Congratulations!Today is your day,You’re off to Great Places!You’re off and away!No wonder this was the last tale by Dr. Seuss while he was alive (there are two more books, published posthumously)……and I am sure that he is now visting great places!This is a charming tale about the journey of each of us in our lives, BUTwhat I really liked was that Dr. Seuss don’t lie to us.He exposes during the rhythmic narrative, that not everything will be peaches-a [...]

    How did I ever miss this gem! Love Dr. Seuss!

  • Amanda

    Upon the graduation of my firstborn last weekend, I decided to really read this book for the first time. I read many Dr. Seuss books to him over the years, but somehow this one never made it home with us. What can I say? It's pretty amazing how deep truths can be conveyed in such simple rhymes. Seuss warns of setbacks in life, the danger of getting stuck in the dreaded "waiting place," the inevitability of lonely times, and the importance of remembering that life is a "Great Balancing Act." Simp [...]

    Dr. Seuss is clearly the true essence of children’s books as he writes about life in a playful and lyrical way that children can easily understand. Well, “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” is definitely no exception as it is about believing in yourself as you go out into the world. “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” is easily a book that every child should read whenever he or she are in a slump!Basically, this book is about taking charge of your own life facing difficulties in your life such as [...]

  • Fables&Wren

    WrensReads Review:THIS BOOK HAS SUCH DEEP MEANINGS IN IT.It touches on anxiety and depression like you wouldn't believe, but in a nice way.It wants you to get up! Go out! Do the things you want to do! Don't Wait! Don't fright! You have to go and do you! Seriously Wren, stop rhyming.He touches on things involving how things won't go your way and you'll get down. Or you'll be worried you picked the wrong path. He continues on why it is okay and that it will be alright! I think this is important to [...]

    I never enjoyed Dr. Seuss books. They never 'spoke' to me. Just a bunch of silly rhymes and ok illustrations. However, they seem to have inspired the sort of devotion in some people (view spoiler)[the endless trolls I get on The Lorax (hide spoiler)] that I have for the original pre-Disney A.A. Milne Winnie The Pooh books (view spoiler)[but I don't troll those who don't like them (hide spoiler)]. This book was no exception. What fans call 'whimsical', I call 'cutsie' and sugary-sweet and very un [...]

    Now first of all let me explain from the startthat I love Dr. Seuss, he had such a good heart.His stories are nonsense but also have meaning,the wisdom found here is quite surely worth gleaning.Some say it's for children; they'll love it a lot,but it's everyone's book, so don't think that it's not.In fact I would say that while kids love the tale,the adults will understand more, without fail.It's once you have been through this life fully grownthat you understand not just the pictures alone,or t [...]

  • [Shai] The Bibliophage

    This is a children's story book, but reading this feels like Dr. Seuss not only wrote this for young readers. He also deliberately target adult readers because the way it gives hope; it reminds us of the challenges and the success we might experienced on our journey in our lives.

  • Anne

    THIS SIMPLE CHILDREN'S BOOK ISThis book has more depth, more heart, and is more inspiring than a lot of YA and NAbooks I could mention, all put together. This is probably my best Dr. Seuss book yet.You will come to a place where the streets are not marked.Some windows are lighted. but mostly they're darked. But mostly they're darked. A place you could sprain both your elbow and chin! Do you dare to stay out? Do you dare to go in?How much can you lose? How much can you win?”You'll get mixed up, [...]

  • Eddie

    I've had this book on my dresser for a long time, siting there saying read me, but my brain saying, but it's a kid book! Like, little, little kid book! Don't bother. So it sat there, in the waiting place. Just waiting. But in reality, I was in the waiting place. My god, I've been in the waiting place. What have I been doing all these years? Waiting! Just passing time. Not playing any games to win. Just waiting. How so sad. Not anymore. Who needs the gurus, preachers, god, etc, when you have this [...]

  • James

    This is a lovely book and quite different in many ways to much of Dr Seuss's classic children's books. For what is ostensibly a children's book, is perhaps nothing of the kind - this is a book which is most definitely for all of us. This is a story about the journey of life, it's about life's challenges, the successes and the happiness, along with the loneliness and the sadness of life. The good and the bad along with the happy and the sad - as it were.In the hands of so many other authors / ill [...]

    I bought this for my youngest son who is graduating from high school in a few days. “You're off to Great Places!Today is your day!Your mountain is waiting,So get on your way!”The journey of the book is based on the journey of life, with some speed bumps along the way,“I'm sorry to say sobut, sadly, it's truethat Bang-upsand Hang-ups can happen to you."But it never stops inspiring.“And will you succeed?Yes! You will, indeed!(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)”And my personal favorite,“Yo [...]

    I love this book. I mean, in general I love Dr. Seuss and all, but this one really touched me and its the only one I own of his.I bought this and it came just as I had my two lower wisdom teeth removed. Lets just say there were a few complications and I was stuck in bed for over a week eating baby food and ground up things (have you ever had meat ground up in the food processorICK!) and my mom would read things to me. And this is one of the things she would read. It was so fantasitc.It is a very [...]

    "I'm afraid that some times you'll play lonely games too. Games you can't win 'cause you'll play against you. All Alone! Whether you like it or not, Alone will be something you'll be quite a lot."I graduated yesterday and I received 3 copies of this book as gifts. I, of course, had seen this book around a lot, but I never actually read it. Well, right now I had the chance to sit down and read through it. And maybe I'm just overtly emotional, but I found myself tearing up reading Dr. Seuss' words [...]

  • MarnieKrüger

    Had to read this one again. I haven't read it in so many years, but Jennifer Niven made me want to go back to the Bright Places; so I jumped on board and bought me the E-book!Now I'm really considering getting myself all the old favorites to add to my shelves.

    Some thoughts for JAMS 8th graders from Dr. Seuss:Congratulations!Today is your day,You're off to Great Places!You're off and away!You have brains in your head.You have feet in your shoes.You can steer yourselfany direction you choose.You're on your own. And you know what you know.And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.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 full of feet,yo [...]

    This book contains a very powerful inspirational message for children and adults alike. It contains great wisdom about the trials and tribulations of life with a powerful message of life.It contains a warning that we all need to heed: Except when you don't. Because sometimes you won't'Something we all have to accept and deal with. Always at the basis is a very powerful message of hope :"Kid , you'll move mountains". Unlike "Solla Sollew" , Dr Seuss acknowledges in this book that sometimes when a [...]

  • Bradley

    Many highs and lows follow this immersive fantasy tale. I loved the way it dealt with the psychology of succeeding and failing and our reactions to both. The elephants were a very nice touch.It also took on the very controversial second-person narrative structure, and because of its length, neither I nor my daughter had any problems with it.My wife, on the other hand, hated it. That's when I felt the true lows of this immersive fantasy tale, and it had nothing to do with the popping of any ballo [...]

  • Francesca

    I'd never read this book before but I bought it to give to my sister for her baby shower as I thought a Dr Seuss book would be perfect for her and my 9 year old nephew to read to the new baby and also get to read themselves. I thought the book was absolutely charming and wonderful and I'm very glad I chose this one. I just hope they enjoy it as much as I did, although I'm sure they will!

  • Michael Finocchiaro

    One of the great Seuss classics that I read innumerable times to my kids, Oh The Places You'll Go is a wonderful nonsense rhyming journey to take with your children.

  • Ashley

    I was given this book on my high school graduation day by my mom. I cannot think of a better book for children, people graduating ANYTHING, people who are opening a chapter in their life, or even those who may have just closed one. I still look back to this book when I need a a fresh pair of eyes in which to view the world.
