Oh, the Places You’ll Go! by Dr. Seuss is a whimsical and inspirational book that I read to my children when they were younger and still sits on their bookshelf today. It was a favorite of ours and I loved its message. It’s a reminder that we’re all travelers and we should enjoy the ride no matter how challenging the journey may be.
Today is your day.
You’re off to Great Places!
You’re off and away!
The Political Dr. Seuss, PBS’s documentary about the writer. “Many readers didn’t know that The Sneetches was inspired by Seuss’s opposition to anti-Semitism, that Horton Hears a Who! was a political statement about democracy and isolationism, or that The Lorax and The Butter Battle Book were parables about the environment and the arms race.”
