This book is one of my favorites. As a school teacher, this book is shared with the 5th grade class as they are moving on to middle school. This book is also given to staff who are leaving the school as a way to wish them luck with their new adventures in the future. This book is a great teaching tool for adults and children to teach them to be individuals and that the possibilities are endless when it comes to the road of life.
I fell in love with the books message when I first read it, so I give it to every highschool or college graduate I know. If you've never read it, you can google it and get a "snippet" of the text. The book is worth the buy because of the fun colorful drawings.
My husband and I have made this a traditonal graduation present in our families. It is a wonderful book that is a fitting gift for those about to graduate and embark on a new chapter in their lives. We always write something personal to the recipient on the first page. It has always been well received and it makes a wonderful keepsake.
I am a Special Education teacher of adolescent children, and when my students move from the elementary level to the secondary level, a gift of this book has been a tradition of mine....the price on overstock is a great value, the service was prompt and efficient, and the book itself is a wonderful gift for anyone at a moving-on point in life....
