A perennial favorite, Dr. Seuss's wonderfully wise graduation speech is the perfect send-off for children starting out in the world, be they nursery school, high school, or college grads! From soaring to high heights and seeing great sights to being left in a Lurch on a prickle-ly perch, Dr. Seuss addresses life's ups and downs with his trademark humorous verse and illustrations, while encouraging readers to find the success that lies within. In a starred review, Booklist notes: "Seuss's message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act,' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'"

About the Book

In this joyous ode to life, Dr. Seuss addresses graduates of all ages--from nursery school to medical school--and gives them the get-up-and-go to move mountains with the unrivaled exuberance and charm.

From the Publisher

From the Jacket

Illus. in full color. "Don't be fooled by the title of this seriocomic ode to success; it's not 'Climb Every Mountain,' kid version. All journeys face perils, whether from indecision, from loneliness, or worst of all, from too much waiting. Seuss' familiar pajama-clad hero is up to the challenge, and his odyssey is captured vividly in busy two-page spreads evoking both the good times (grinning purple elephants, floating golden castles) and the bad (deep blue wells of confusion). Seuss' message is simple but never sappy: life may be a 'Great Balancing Act,' but through it all 'There's fun to be done.'"--(starred) Booklist.

Editorial Reviews

Gift guide, The New York Times, June 21, 2008:
"One book that has proved to be popular for graduates of all ages since it was first published in 1990."

Employee Review

A classic Dr. Seuss story, this book is about making choices and fulfilling goals. The story tells of the endless possibilities that exist in the future, and the opportunities that arise when you set out with "your head full of brains and your shoes full of feet." This would make a great gift for grads, or for anyone looking for inspiration to begin a new journey. You'll be "ninety-eight and three-quarters per cent guaranteed to succeed" with this one!

Appropriate for ages: 3 - 5
