This is an exceptional book for students of all ages as they begin new adventures and conquer stepping stones along their way. This book uses poetic lines that explain the reality of obstacles and the victory of successes. ( )

Oh! The places you'll go is a literary classic for all ages. Whether you are graduating kindergarten or a doctorate program, you are sure to gain some kind of life advice and peace of mind. This is what Dr. Seuss was best at, teaching real life lessons in a simplified world of his own. This is why I consider his work realistic fiction. ( )

This book has a lot of sentimental value to me. It was the book that my mom used to always read me the day before a new school year and the night before my high school graduation where she gave me my own copy that she signed a sweet note in. As a future teacher I will always read this book on the first day of school. ( )

I am a fan of Dr. Seuss books and love reading them to students. This book especially is a fun book to read to the class and always engages the students perfectly. There is so much going on and many fun words, which helps the students stay engaged unlike some books where they loose interest.

e auteur heeft ook hier weer een stevig absurd verhaal gecreëerd dat je meesleept doorheen zijn wondere wereld, waarin je van de ene verbazing in de andere valt.
Het vertelstandpunt vanuit het jongetje dwingt je tot kiezen en meeleven. Zo leidt dit boek ook tot reflecteren en vertalen naar je eigen, herkenbare wereld.
De tekst op rijm is doordacht geconstrueerd en leest vlot.
De fantasierijke woordenschat wekt verwondering op en dwingt respect af.
En doordat het hoogst absurde, quasi-nonsens-gehalte gelinkt blijft aan de herkenbare realiteit, verlies je nergens het spoor.
De fantasierijke prenten in ouderwets aandoende kleuren versterken de tekst en vice versa. Te gekke figuren met een grote beweeglijkheid en overduidelijke expressies loodsen je doorheen de absurde, eigengereide wereld van Dr. Seuss, waarin het goed vertoeven is.
 
This is a great inspirational story that gives children hope for the future. Great to use at the end of the year.

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679805273, Hardcover)

Inspirational yet honest, and always rhythmically rollicking, Oh, the Places You'll Go! is a perfect sendoff for children, 1 to 100, entering any new phase of their lives. Kindergartners, graduate students, newlyweds, newly employeds--all will glean shiny pearls of wisdom about the big, bountiful future. The incomparable Dr. Seuss rejoices in the potential everyone has to fulfill their wildest dreams: "You'll be on your way up! / You'll be seeing great sights! / You'll join the high fliers / who soar to high heights." At the same time, he won't delude the starry-eyed upstart about the pitfalls of life: "You can get all hung up / in a prickle-ly perch. / And your gang will fly on. / You'll be left in a Lurch."

But fear not! Dr. Seuss, with his inimitable illustrations and exhilarating rhymes, is convinced ("98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed") that success is imminent. As long as you remember "to be dexterous and deft. And NEVER mix up your right foot with your left," things should work out. (All ages) --Emilie Coulter
