Oh the Places You'll Go!

By: Dr. Seuss

"Oh the Places You'll Go" is a book be Dr. Seuss is about moving forward in your life. Dr. Seuss writes about a boy who is growing up and learning how to succeed on his own. A great lesson is taught in this book: there will be ups and downs in life, but you just have to keep moving and keep your head up. As the young boy travels through the story, he learns that whenever he is stuck in a lump, he must believe that he will succeed, "yes [he] will, 98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed" (Seuss). The boy in the story represents any one of us who goes through life. We can't let the bad times hold us back and always remember, "Your off to great places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting! So get on your way!" (Seuss).
