Every Year Have Your Child’s Teachers Sign the Book “Oh the Places You’ll Go” by Dr. Seuss – Give It As a High School Graduation Gift

oh the places you'll go teacher graduation gift idea

If the thought of future milestones like your child’s high school graduation makes you weepy, grab a box of tissues and stick with me.  2 years ago as Lily wrapped up her very first year of preschool, a friend share this idea with me.  I thought it was the sweetest thing, and as we say goodbye to PreK next week and look towards Kindergarten next year, I just dropped off our book for the third school year in a row.

The premise is an easy one.  The task of digging the book back out every May/June to take to school is a little bit more challenging, but so far, so good.

Purchase a copy of Dr. Seuss’s Oh the Places You’ll Go.

Each year as the school year comes to an end, give the book to your child’s teacher to sign/leave a short note somewhere in the book.


My goal is to have her teachers sign this same book every single year (and can include other important coaches, mentors, etc as needed). I will then gift the book to her at her high school graduation. (Which of course I don’t even want to THINK about because she’s only 5 and time already feels like it’s flying.)
