This book is your new best friend. Graduation gift, assistance for beginning readers or self-present pick-me-up, Dr Seuss's unique way of using light-hearted rhyme to explore deep issues is relevant to people of any age.

Oh, The Places You'll Go! Is a lyrical narrative of encouragement in the face of life's troubles. It advocates for self-belief, carving your own path, action instead of lethargy, and practicing resilience in the face of difficulty, while maintaining a colourful cacophony of illustrations featuring creatures great and small, some of which are born of another world; the long-necked Hakken-Kracks, and the unnamed, oversized green beast that lurks in a cave.

Dr Seuss's tale is a heart-warming gift that will be returned to time and time again. I wasn't introduced to this book until age sixteen, when it was read to a group of over 100 of us on a youth leadership camp. A children's book captivating a room of teenagers! Since then I've returned to it many times over the years, both giving it to others and exploring it again myself, as it always leaves a warm, uplifting feeling. It generally retails for less than twelve dollars, so give it a go – today is your day!
