Oh, the Places You'll Go!

Today is your day.
You're off to Great Places!
You're off and away!

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself
any direction you choose.

- Oh, the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss

We recently purchased Oh, the Places You'll Go by Dr. Seuss. It's one of the
books we got for Little M's homeschooling. Little did I know that it would 
turn out to be a book that we all would enjoy. 

Oh, the Places You'll Go is a book about life. It presents a no nonsense view
of life that children and adults can appreciate. It tells us how sometimes you'll
be up, and sometimes you'll be down. Regardless, it's what you decide to do
with your life that matters: if you work it, good things will manifest in your life.

And so if you're ever in need of a simple pick me up, grab a cup of tea and
curl up to Oh, the Places You'll Go. It's guaranteed to give you a good dose
of warm fuzzies.


  1. Today is my day.
    Therefore, I claim...

    I'm off to Great Places!
    I'm off and away!

    I have brains in my head.
    I have feet in my shoes.
    I can steer myself
    any direction I choose.

    ...i call it the power of affirmation...

  2. Love it! steers your imagination, creativity and positivity!:)

  3. Hmm.. I'm not fond of D. Seuss.. Ang weird lang kasi ng mga cartoons nya. LOL.. No offense po. hehe.. But well, my nieces like them. Merong mga Dr. Seuss books dun sa bahay ng Kuya ko. So I guess, okay din sya..

    Makabasa nga ng Dr. Seuss book pag makabisita ako dun.. :)

  9. Dr. Seuss? Hey, isn't he the one who authored the Grinch Who Stole Christmas or something like that... I really don't know many books nor authors but his name was familiar to me, somehow...

  10. Wow this book is just what I need! Will check next time I drop by at the bookstore. :)

  11. Traveling to different places is very educational, interesting and challenging both financial and physical. Reading book of places is virtually traveling around the word of places of interests and of wonder.

  12. it's what you decide to do
    with your life that matters: if you work it, good things will manifest in your life.--> ABSOLUTELY TRUE. There is always rewards after all the hardworks been done. Very inspiring post! All the best.

    Clint, Gladys, Kathy, Violy, Tess --- In case you want to get a copy of Oh, the Places You'll Go!, it should be available at the bookstores. It's one of the more popular Dr. Seuss books
    and they usually have it on stock.

    Romelo, yes same author :)

    Leah, I know some people find Dr. Seuss weird. However, you may want to revisit his
    books again. You'd be surprised at how you just might end up liking them.

  17. My son reads Dr Seuss books too. He shares it with his cousins.

  18. I'm not really a book worm, but, I also read books of Tom Clancy when I was in college. Haven't read Dr. Seuss, it must be a good book! Thanks for sharing! =)

  19. Dr. Seuss appeared to be a "children's book" but it's not. There are more in his books than just a fancy cartoons and 4 liner poems.

  20. heheehe maganda pla toh? my sister have it, hindi ko lang pinansin.. tonight i'll ask her about it

  21. my son loves reading different kinds of books, from choose your own adventure books to kids almanacs. he never had any dr seuss books though, tried buying one for him but he doesnt like it :(

  22. karen, julie ann and blair, Dr. Seuss is one of the best children's book authors.
