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?

Oh, the Places You'll Go!
Narrated by John Lithgow

Enjoyed his performance. On the high notes, he sounded upbeat and when speaking of the down notes, he appropriately sounded rather downtrodden but still hopeful. I thought that the music and sound effects were a nice touch.

3.5 stars for the story
3.5 stars for the narration

The Lorax
Narrated by Ted Danson

Ted Danson did a wonderful performance as the Lorax and the narrator. I thought that the music and sound effects helped to set the mood a
John Lithgow's rendition of Oh, the Places You'll Go! is fabulous. Ted Danson was a disappointment after listening to Lithgow who should read all of Dr. Seuss's audiobooks, if you ask me!
A couple of classic stories read expertly by well known actors. It was the camping selection for Claire and I and quite enjoyable.

HEY!!!! Let's join his happiest book with his saddest book!!!!! WOW!!!! What a terrible idea!!!
Perfect for graduations.
love love loved it, wo can resist Dr Seuss :-)
I cannot wait to see
The words people will write
Because some can be
Very contrite.

The words I read,
On a brown kitchen table,
Made me dread
The end of a fable.

I liked it,
And everyone else too,
With great spirit,
And a voice that went "ooh!".

I'm not a poet. I don't know how punctuation applies to poetry and I've never bothered to figure out. Take that with a grain of salt.
It's Dr. Seuss! What more can you say? Inspirational, appropriate and fun for any age.
Fantastic book for kids! So imaginative and creative. Easy read that children will find delightful!

Dr. Seuss is always brilliant! His stories and rhymes are fun and entertaining! Some of my all time favorites!! Such a great way to entertain children and get them interested in reading!
A very special book with a message that is timeless. Everybody needs to read or listen to this book, probably once a month!

I only rated Oh, the places you'll go!

Great book for inspiring children to do what they want to do and allow them to dream big. Good for the end of the year wrap up.
Adore both of these books so much!!! fantastic stories and messages. Timeless and fun!
