Oh, the Places You'll Go!

A blog I like to visit found a book published in 1940 and yes it was a Dr. Seuss book. I am waiting on pictures to make another post so I thought in the mean time I would share one of the well-known Dr. Seuss books with you.

In 2002 I ran for State 4-H Treasurer and won! My friend had currently held the position (one of the main reasons I wanted Treasurer - she would hand her position down to me). It was custom to hand them a gift on stage when you passed your title and she gave me a couple of different things but one was this Dr. Seuss book and it had more meaning than she would ever know. Here is the first two pages:

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.
You're on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who'll decide where to go.
