-Dr. Seuss, Oh, the Places You'll Go!
I absolutely love this book with all of my Mommy heart.
I, of course, didn't appreciate the meaning behind it when I was little.
Years passed and I found myself shopping for a graduation present for my friend. Oh, the Places You'll Go! was being wisely marketed to recent grads. I wondered why so I read it...and I got a little teary. It was then that I learned to fully appreciate Dr. Seuss and his meaningful words.
In fact, Dr. Seuss has been a huge part of my life since I was little. I've seen The Grinch about a million times. Don't even get me started on Green Eggs and Ham.
Then the past year happened. Oh, the Places You'll Go! dug itself a little deeper into my heart.
If you have children, if you've gone through hell and made it out, or if you're set to go on a journey of some sort, read it! Yes, I said read a children's book! Actually, I'm not sure it was written for children at all! It will speak to you, I promise.
And wanna know about one of the coolest gifts ever given to Christian?
These are canvas paintings of different scenes from Oh, the Places You'll Go!
Wanna know what else? My own Mommy painted them herself! (She's an artist.)
Wanna know the coolest news ever?
They'll be available in the blogction. One winner will receive a set of four (4) canvas paintings customized from their choice of Green Eggs and Ham, Oh, the Places You'll Go!, or The Cat in the Hat.
She also gave us the actual book, which is pretty awesome all by itself.
