This popular Dr. Seuss book is inspiring for even adults. This book emphasizes the saying "when one door closes, another one opens." There are many opportunities in life, you just have to go out and get them. As with any Dr. Seuss book, there is humor and wit in the wring of this book. I would say the intended audience for this book is 2nd to 3rd grade, but it is fitting for anyone at any age. An activity I would do with this book would to have students share with the class what they want to be when they grow up. The can dress up as this person whether it be a rockstar, a doctor, or to be just like their mom or dad! This gets students thinking about the future and gets them motivated to look beyond school life and set goals to get to the place they want to go!
