One of the coolest ideas I’ve ever heard of

During a group conversation about kids books that make you cry, my friend Mary dropped an awesome bomb on me that I haven’t been able to get out of my head.

She bought Oh The Places you Will Go by Dr. Seuss and is planning to have all of her daughter’s teachers throughout the years write a note to her in the book.ย  Then she will present it to her daughter when she graduates from high school.

Can we please pause and absorb how amazeballs this idea is?ย  I love love love it!


PS, Amy, I already got the book for Parker for Christmas!

  4. OMG, OMG, OMG. I’ve always given that book as gifts to graduates. What an amazing idea. @Mary you are brilliant. I’m going to do this for my daughter, my heart is already singing. She is kindergarten. Sarah, thanks for posting this. :]

  7. I made my daughter’s graduation party invites/announcements using quotes from Dr. Suess’s “Oh The Places You Will Go!” Everyone loved them, and I then had all her guests write a little message to her on the back pages of the book. She is 21 now, and still says it is her favorite gift of all time. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Found a free printable template explaining the tradition!
