Oh the Places You’ll Go Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the third annual Oh! the Places You’ll Go Giveaway Hop, hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island.

While the theme of this hop is back to school, the name of this hop was inspired by a Dr. Seuss book, titled Oh, The Places You’ll Go. While it may not be one of his more famous books, the cover is certainly in the classic Seussian style.

But Dr. Seuss, or Theodor Seuss Geisel (his real name) was not just a children’s book author. He was also an editorial cartoonist during World War II. Those cartoons have also been turned into a book, Dr. Seuss Goes to War. The style may be the same, but the themes are very different.

What places will you go? Will you be a traveler or an armchair traveler? Or both? For just a little something to help with at least an armchair trip, answer the question in the Rafflecopter for your chance at your choice of a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a $10 Book from the Book Depository.

Oh The Places You’ll Go Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the second annual Oh, the Places You’ll Go Giveaway Hop, hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island.

On Monday, I got stuck behind a school bus on my way to work. That was the first time in months. School is obviously back in session. August still seems early to me. It’s still hotter than blue blazes here in Atlanta, the air conditioning is running full blast, and it seems like summer isn’t near over yet. But if school has started, it must be, at least for certain definitions of “over”.

This hop is named for one of the many, many (many) terrific books by the late and very great Theodore Geisel, better known to all as Dr. Seuss. Did you know that once upon a time, before that mischievous cat ever found himself in that hat, Dr. Seuss drew editorial cartoons (for grown ups) during World War II? Who knew?

In addition to all of his wonderful books for children, he also wrote one book for “obsolete children”. Titled You’re Only Old Once! it is written and illustrated in Seuss’ singular style, but aimed at an audience that is just a few (dozen) years older than the audience for The Cat in the Hat and Horton Hears a Who.

But for all the places you’ll go, and all the time you might spend waiting while someone else has gone there, I have a giveaway. The winner will receive their choice of a $10 Amazon Gift Card or a $10 Book from the Book Depository. Perhaps an armchair trip to one of those places you’ll go.
