Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

Oh,_the_Places_You'll_Go

During this time of year, I always share the Dr. Seuss classic, Oh, the Places You’ll Go, with the students of Fox Hill as they embark on summer of new adventures! A fantastic book for kids and adults of all ages, Oh, the Places You’ll Go, tells us there is a whole world of wonder out there and there are always opportunities to explore, learn, and be amazed, and also how we can also forge ahead when nothing seems to go our way. I wish all of our students and their families a fun, safe, exciting, happy summer full of wonder, growth, learning, and adventure!

DID YOU KNOW? Oh, the Places You’ll Go was the last book Dr. Seuss published in his lifetime?
