Dr. Seuss's wonderfully wise "Oh, the Places You ll Go "is the perfect send-off for grads from nursery school, high school, college, and beyond From soaring to high heights and seeing great sights to being left in a Lurch on a prickle-ly perch, Dr. Seuss addresses life's ups and downs with his trademark humorous verse and illustrations, while encouraging readers to find the success that lies within. In a starred review, "Booklist" notes, Seuss's message is simple but never sappy: life may be a Great Balancing Act, but through it all There's fun to be done.
