    Dad kept this graduation gift a secret for 13 years. He got every teacher, coach, principal, etc., since kindergarten to write a memory of/for his daughter in Dr. Seuss' "Oh, The Places You'll Go". Gave it to her on her high school graduation. Such a sweet idea - could be done with any book that has a special meaning to the family.

"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."
