Overview

This cloth-bound, slip-cased deluxe edition is the perfect elegant gift! Features a full-color cover insert on the cloth slip-case, a full color-printed book case, a bookplate for personalizing, and the Good Doctor's famous commencement speech "My Uncle Terwilliger on the Art of Eating Popovers" (a.k.a. the "Popover" Poem) printed inside.

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.’” A perennial favorite and a perfect gift for anyone starting a new phase in their life! 

This deluxe edition is perfect for displaying and destined to become a family classic.

I think that this is a great book for fourth, fifth, and sixth graders. The book talks about how you have brains and feet and it is your choice to decide where you go in live. One apect I really like about the book is that it also says there will be hard times and slumps. This book is a wonderful book to read to your students on the first or last day of school. While reading this book you could talk to the children about making good decisions in your classroom. I really enjoyed reading this book and this it would be a wonderful addition to any teachers library.

Given to me by the Community Coordinators from the Youth Reading Role Models program as a graduation gift from High School. I take it out once in a while to read again and to not get discouraged. Oh the Places I'll Go!

This story is timeless and perfect. I specifically bought this book for the hardback and case. I have a copy for each of my children that I have their teachers sign every year and it will make a great graduation gift for them one day.

My best friend started giving this book as a gift to all of the High School Graduates she knew. I totally stole the idea and gave it to my son when he graduated. It is very inspiring. It reads like it was meant for teenagers.

I have made it a practice of mine to give this book to my granchildren when they are graduated from college. They just love it. When we open this book, it gives us a chance to read it together-taking turns. of course someone invariably says"That is so true....Although not one of DR. Seuss' best - it does send a message-the world is out there for you! Simple, yet profound. I recommend this for all age groups. Lady A.

Theodore Giesel hit the nail on the head with this book. All English teachers in all high schools should read this book to thier outgoing 12th graders before graduation ariives. It is very true to life in all facets.

Many books have come and gone yet none of them have been able to inspire an odd cat like myself to do what it is I was meant to do. It taught me to never settle for the part of the world where I landed and it also showed me that in the darkest times is when one must keep ones head to find that open air. This book is truly meant for the free spirits of the world or for those who need to know that they are not the only ones who feel all alone.

I have always loved this book, for it's creativity, and hidden message. It gives children the idea that nothing is immpossible, you can move mountains, and make new friends, go to places unknown. The pictures are fabulous, and the story doesn't make a lot of sense, but it's a great thing to read to young children. They don't have to understand anything, becasue all of this stuff is made up, and imaginary.

I first read this book in Latin in my High School Latin class. I thought my teacher was crazy for making us read this Dr. Seuss book, but soon I began to appreciate it. After reading it and translating it from Latin to English, I picked up a copy in English and read it. It got me through some tough times and gave me encouragement and support. DOnt be fooled by the age limit listed on this book. I have bought a copy of this for two of my closest friends and a teacher. Its an ideal gift for anyone at anytime.
