Oh, the Places You'll Go!

For out-starting upstarts of all ages, here is a wonderfully wise and blessedly brief graduation speech from the one and only Dr. Seuss. In his inimitable, humorous verse he addresses the Great Balancing Act (life itself, and the ups and downs it presents) while encouraging us to find the success that lies within us.

And will you succeed?
Yes! You will, indeed!
(98 and 3/4 percent...guaranteed.)


The Lorax

Long before saving the earth became a global concern, Dr. Seuss, speaking through his character the Lorax, warned against mindless progress and the danger it posed to the earth's natural beauty. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “The clever, tripping rhymes and whimsical creatures and landscapes here will draw the faithful as usual…Most beguiling, however, is the artful phrasing of the gentle message: caught in life’s waiting games, we wait for ‘the mail to come, or the rain to go/or the phone to ring, or the snow to snow … or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants/or a wig with curls, or Another Chance’…Montaigne pointed out that it’s the journey that matters, not the arrival; here, Seuss explores the same philosophical message in his own inimitably wise and witty style.”

    " I did not read this book until I got it as a graduation present. Everyone gets it as a graduation present. Maybe if I'd read it early I would have been inspired to go more places and not be such a slacker. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette Kennedy | 1/31/2014

    " Dr. Seuss has a way of appealing to all ages with his sing song rhymes giving life lessons with a smile. This book is a frequently requested book in early elementary classes, and, interestingly enough, by graduating seniors as they look for direction as they try to figure out the places they will go. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian | 1/24/2014

    " I love a book that can have a positive, optimistic take on graduation. Everyone seems obligated to focus on the fact that you're leaving the kids who you grew up with. I DON'T WANT TO BE REMINDED OF THAT. And it had to happen sometime, didn't it? "

About the Author
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904.  After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising.  His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!,  appeared in several leading American magazines.  Dr. Seuss's first children's book, And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever!  In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best-selling series, Beginner Books.  This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills.  Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents.  In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
