REACH FOR THE STARS: and Other Advice for Life's Journey Along the lines of OH, THE PLACES YOU'LL GO!, YAY, YOU! and THE NORTH STAR, this appealingly illustrated book by Serge Bloch fits right in, giving you another great gift choice for graduates and the like.

Its message isn't unique in that way, but what is unique is the illustration style. When done well, the mix of photographs and line drawings make for very interesting visuals. If you're looking for a good book of encouragement, this is o

Subtitled "and Advice for Life's Journey" this graduation, retirement, or continuation little book uses figurative language (aka figures of speech) illustrated with pen and ink drawings with photography.

PB 25: What a wonderful book. I read this when I wasn't having the greatest of days and it cheered me right up. It reminded me of Oh the Places You'll go, which is my favorite book, so that was awesome. It teaches kids such a great lesson of picking yourself up when you get knocked down. Not to mention the illustrations are veryyyy peculiar but I loved it, very attention grabby.

Adorable. Another book to add to my end of the year read alouds list. Could also be used to teach cliches.

Filled with idioms about the journey of life.
It delivers a simple, yet concise message about life and what it entails to sail on a pursuit of one`s dreams.

This is one of my favorite books. I would use it at the beginning of the school year with any age student. It is a great inspirational book that will motivate children for the entire year.
Great book for teaching that life has ups and downs and that you can push through those and succeed.

Is this book too young for a 4th grader? I thought about giving it as a gift but wasn't sure.
