Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Several Years Ago I was introduced to this delightful Dr Seuss book.  

I was familiar with many of his books, of course.

Green Eggs and Ham; If I ran the Zoo; How the Grinch Stole Christmas; and at least 20 more!

But this particular book was new to me. I LOVED it immediately! Every so often my copy finds it’s way to my night stand.

It can be read in one sitting… and it packs a wallop!

Dr Seuss

 I did not realize then that this book is meant  for children AND adults!

Since it was written in 1990 and I was already well into middle age at that point (and did not work with children) the book was not on my radar.!

“Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!”

This is the opening page of the book. It sets the tone for a marvelous journey through your life. Each page offers a treatise on life… offering hope, encouraging us to dream big and reach for the stars.

You won’t lag behind because you’ll have the speed. You’ll pass the whole gang and you’ll soon take the lead.”….. “Except when you don’t. Because sometime you won’t.”

More words of wisdom to help us all get the most of our journey in life.

If you haven’t yet had the opportunity to read and enjoy  ‘Oh, The Places You’ll Go’   …. get a copy of it today and experience the wonder this book brings.

So… be your name Buxbaum or Bixby or Bray or Mordecai   Ali  Van  Allen O’Shea, your off to Great Places!
Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting.  
So… get on your way!”
