In this classic Seussian tale, the good doctor primes his readers against all the little mishaps and misadventures that can befall even the best of us - from bang-ups and hang-ups to lurches and slumps - encouraging us to take life in our stride! Now in picture book format. This title is perfect for reading with children and as a gift for any life-changing occasion such as graduation, changing or leaving school etc. With his unique combination of hilarious stories, zany pictures and riotous rhymes, Dr. Seuss has been delighting young children and helping them learn to read for over fifty years. Creator of the wonderfully anarchic Cat in the Hat, and ranked among the UK's top ten favourite children's authors, Seuss is firmly established as a global best-seller, with nearly half a billion books sold worldwide.

  • Reaction: Starting off with a celebratory “Congratulations! Today is your day. You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!” Dr. Seuss excites the reader, brings hope and promise to the future. He advises the reader to look out for the obstacles within the maze of life “you’ll lok up and down streets. Look em over with care. About some you will say, “I don’t choose to go there.” This is such a timeless book, great advice for young and old alike.

  • The choices you make in life affect where you go, and any obstacles you come to should be faced to make you stronger. The one character that the book follows is never named, but that helps in making the book apply to anyone without having a memorable character. Throughout the book, this character faces many difficulties and accomplishments, which could happen anywhere, in any order. The style is rhyming lines that describe the different situations, and the illustrations show these events unfolding in Dr. Seuss' usual world of color and crazy shapes. It is a very good book for children facing hardships, and I would include it in my collection.

  • Another Dr. Seuss classic, this book appeals to people of all ages. It seems that every time I read it, it develops more meaning. This is a good book for children because the words are all easy. This would also be good for a lesson toward the end of the year to get the students ready for a new class and new teacher.

  • I was first given this book when I was in elementary school and my family was about to make a big move from Louisiana to Maryland. It is a great book that tells us all, young and old, that we are capable of going wherever and being whoever we choose. And where ever you choose to go, there are adventures to be had. This is the kind of children's book that when you mention the title, adults will still say "Awww, I love that book!"
