What to Expect: Rhyming Text, Inspirational, Dreaming Big, and Zany Characters

Hundreds of millions of Dr. Seuss’s books have been sold worldwide and published in over thirty languages. Have you read Oh, the Places You’ll Go? As Dr. Seuss says in One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish: “If you never did, you should. These things are fun and fun is good.”

From soaring to high heights and seeing great sights to being left in a lurch on a prickle-ly perch, Oh, the Places You’ll Go has to be one of the most inspiring and encouraging books ever. Yes. E. V. E. R. From the words of wisdom to the iconic illustrations, this is a favorite for many people. There are so many reasons to love this tale, including the sheer absurdity of Dr. Seuss’s zany characters.

It’s perfect for all ages— including adults or kids graduating from one grade school to another, and it’s also great for anyone learning to read. Thanks to Dr. Seuss’s clever rhyming, this book sounds great when it is read aloud—so find a friend or a dog (Go, Dog! Go!) and host a read-aloud session or pretend you’re standing on a podium giving an inspiring speech to your graduating class no matter the grade.

Oh, the Places You’ll Go is so entertaining. The words will have you (and your friends) reaching for the stars, dreaming big, and moving mountains! Oh, the places you will go after reading this book!
