Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keep it on hand I love to give this as a card for grads. It's adorable, and inspirational, and uplifting, and it's just perfect. Especially when most grads are going to get "Oh the Places You'll Go" in mass quantity, it's also something different.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Gift for Grads Sandra Boynton - who entered our home with my niece and nephew - has become something of a family staple, and this lovely Graduation message book is right up to her usual standards. Delightful rhymes, bold colours, simple - yet surprisingly empathetic - drawings are all the Boyton hallmark, but it's the message in this book that is truly touching. For anyone about to go take their first steps on an independant life, this lovely little message, which brings to mind 'Oh, the Places You'll Go,' is just perfect, and a bit more personally loving. Will you succeed in everything you try? Well, maybe not. But will you still be special? Absolutely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An ageless message... I read this to my class at the end of the school year no matter what grade I have, it applies to all. I even read it at the graduation ceremony one year. I also give it to all Student-Teachers that work in my classroom so they can read it to their future classes. I love the message it sends!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best from Sandra Boynton I bought this book for almost every one of my friends who I graduated with and I also kept a copy for myself. I read it whenever I feel depressed and it always makes me smile. It's very simple, yet it says so much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly Inspirational! I found this book to be truly uplifting and inspirational. It's a great idea for anyone who has just accomplished a major feat, or for someone who is going through a difficult time and needs some encouragement. I am a recent graduate and I am definitely going to buy it for myself!
