Following graduation a father handed his daughter a bag with a copy of "Oh the Places You'll Go," by Dr Seuss in it. At first she just smiled and said that she loved that book. But he told her "No, open it up." ...On the first page she saw a short paragraph written by her kindergarten teacher. He told her "Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I've gotten every teacher, coach and principal to write a little something about you inside this book."
SO doing this for my kiddos someday... send "Oh, the Places You'll Go" by Dr. Seuss each year on the last day of school. Don't tell your kids and let them read 13 years of messages on their graduation day!
I AM SO DOING THIS! "Following my high school graduation ceremony my dad handed me a bag with a copy of Oh the Places You’ll Go, by Doctor Seuss inside. I open it up and on the first page I see a short paragraph written by none other than my kindergarten teacher. My dad tells me “Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I’ve gotten every teacher, coach, and principal to write a little something about you inside this book." oh parents, do this!
