WHEREVER YOU GO

My niece graduated with honors from the University of Wisconsin-Madison this past weekend.

We celebrated her success in a stadium filled with proud parents, relatives, and friends.

I’d like to say the day was perfect, but that would be an understatement. The problem was the weather. It felt more like January than May. The temperature was thirty degrees, the wind was blowing between fifteen and twenty miles per hour, and the sky was spitting snow and sleet pellets. Not even keynote speaker Russell Wilson, a UW graduate and Seahawks quarterback, could warm the cockles of my heart.

Despite the highly unusual weather, we were proud to see our niece graduate and embark upon the next steps to achieve her career goals. “On Wisconsin!”

So what do you give as a gift to a graduate? Money, of course, that’s always appreciated. But if you want to give a gift that’s from the heart, choose Pat Zietlow Miller‘s book, WHEREVER YOU GO.

Eliza Wheeler‘s enchanting illustrations and Miller’s rhythmic text take the reader on a wondrous journey of roads that “bend, merge, zoom, climb, …” This book is perfect for graduates as they decide which road they will choose.
