— Dr Seuss, Oh The Places You’ll Go
Growing up I remember picking up a book by the late Dr. Seuss which I am pretty sure when I think back was the famous The Cat in the Hat. As a child my ability to read was less than satisfactory until my parents got me a reading tutor so you can appreciate that the book to anyone, especially a child who doesn’t read properly is a tongue-tie and you can only image how much I struggled. In recent years, with the birth of my son he has received a copy of another great book by Dr. Seuss called Oh The Places You’ll Go. This book is by far one of the greatest children’s books ever written.
In referencing the book during the writing of this post as I opened the pages of Oh The Places You’ll Go I am covered in a buzz of goosebumps from a flood of gratitude that life can give us everything we want.
Dr Seuss’ Oh The Places You’ll Go takes the reader on an incredible journey, each page rich in lessons about the challenges and success we may all face in life. The book is a must read to all children and a fantastic reminder to adults just as equally that sometimes life throws curve balls, builds walls and throws us in the deep end but with the right mindset and beliefs we can and will achieve success in our lives…
And will you succeed?Yes! You will indeed!(98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.)KID, YOU’LL MOVE MOUNTAINS!
