Horn Book
Dr. Seuss's last book is now available in a slipcased edition obviously designed for adult gift-giving. What lies between the new green covers is the same: encouragement for living a happy, successful life despite loneliness, difficult decisions, fear, and other pitfalls, all wrapped up in Seuss's trademark rhymes and fantastical creatures. While not his greatest work, this is still a book for everyone.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 3-- The master of enjoyable didacticism offers a flight of fancy into the future of a generic ``you'' who is venturing out into the world, where he will have ups and downs but will succeed and finally ``MOVE MOUNTAINS!'' While doting relatives will find this extended greeting card an ideal gift for nursery school graduates, the story will have less appeal for children than Seuss' story books and easy readers. Seuss' characteristic drawings carry and extend the text through mazelike streets, over colorful checkerboard landscapes, into muddy blue ``slumps,'' through heady highs when fame results from success at the game of life, and through dark, lonely confrontations with graveyard-like fears in times of solitude. While the text gives a strong message of self-determination and potential, the small, male ``you'' pictured seems more of a passive passenger on his journey through life, reacting to things as they come and walking along with his eyes shut on both the first and last pages of the text. Although this does not rank among the best of Seuss' books, its stress on self-esteem and imaginative artwork make it a good addition to picture-book collections. --Louise L. Sherman, Anna C.

Dr. Seuss’s wonderfully wise Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is the perfect send-off for grads—from nursery school, high school, college, and beyond! 

From soaring to high heights and seeing great sights to being left in a Lurch on a prickle-ly perch, Dr. Seuss addresses life’s ups and downs with his trademark humorous verse and illustrations, while encouraging readers to find the success that lies within. In a starred review, Booklist notes, “Seuss’s message is simple but never sappy: life may be a ‘Great Balancing Act,’ but through it all ‘There’s fun to be done.’” A perennial favorite and a perfect gift for anyone starting a new phase in their life!
