Big deal right? What if I told you the parents had had every teacher sign it from the time she was 5? Isn’t that just awesome? Inside are words of how she was in their class and well wishes.
A 13 year undertaking. They had to hide the book all these years from her and presented it to her after she graduated.
It’s like having all the people who had you has teachers cheering you on as you embark on your journey into college and beyond.
So I thought, I can do this too.
I bought 2 copies of Oh The Places You’ll Go! and I’ve hidden them in my office. I have contacted my daughters first grade teacher (just a little behind) in hopes she will sign the book for me. And then I’ll contact her kindergarten teacher (now retired), to see if she will sign it as well.
It will be easier for my son as he’s just starting kindergarten.
The hard part will be keeping the books hidden the next 13 years from them and them not finding them. But I’m looking forward to the awesome looks on their faces as they see all their teachers rallying behind them through the years to be successful.
You could also use this as a baby shower gift and have family members sign it for every birthday too.
I just had to share and I hope it inspires you to do this or something unique for your kids graduation.
