Oh, the Places You'll Go!
by Dr. Seuss
Oh, the Places You'll Go! Theme of Exploration
Here's the thing about going places: if you're ever going to get anywhere jaw dropping, you've got to get your feet into shoes and start walking. And this is precisely what your child does from page one on, exploring the world (or their own mind or emotional experiences or career or whatever interpretation you've settled on) far and wide. These explorations take your child to dark and wondrous places alike, through fear and joy and highs and lows. That's why exploration is the theme to beat all themes in Oh, the Places You'll Go! It's what the book's all about.
