Happy Graduation Day!

Throughout the country graduation ceremonies are happening for students of all ages. A quick peek at Instagram will show you PreK students posing proudly in caps and gowns—and triumphant grad school students with specially designed hood draped around their necks.  Beyond the family celebrations and mortarboards, there is one other thing that graduates of all ages might have in common: a book.

There is a tradition of giving a book to a graduate as a guide to life after school. While an antique copy of the graduate’s favorite novel is an incredible gift, an equally touching one might be a copy of a favorite book from childhood. Or a children’s book that truly speaks to the heart.

Here are three of our favorites:

I Wish You More by Amy Krouse Rosenthal , illustrated by Tom Lichtenheld is full of poetic wishes for a happy future. “I wish you more treasures than pocket,” for one.


In Pete the Cat’s Groovy Guide to Life, the cool cat shares some of his favorite life advice for every graduate from great thinkers like Albert Einstein to great writers like Shakespeare!


For decades the Little Blue Engine has inspired readers to believe in themselves and keep going. I Knew You Could is a perfect reminder that with determination, anything is possible!


Do you have a favorite picture book to give as a graduation present?
