We purchased one copy for each of our kids. We have their coaches, teachers, etc. sign the book after each season with a little message. We plan to give them the books when they graduate from high school. What's really neat is they are 6 and 11 and have no clue we have been doing this. Hopefully we can keep that up and it makes a nice surprise and keepsake for them.
I have read it to them once and will read it to them every year before school starts. It's an adorable and inspirational book to remind them to keep pushing forward. Dr. Suess was the first author I ever read (The Foot Book, to be exact) and I while I have seen this one all over the internet, I had never read it before I bought it for my kids.
The product itself came to me in two days, I have Prime, and there were a few nicks on the corners of the book. But I wouldn't say they're overly damaged or whatnot. Just don't expect the product to come in perfect condition. If you're going to steal my idea, the one I stole that is, I recommend storing the books in air tight bags in between readings and having them signed.

Whether your child is 6, 16, 26 ..... It says almost everything you would wish to say about their journey through life.
I first came across this at a conference for entrepreneurs, being read from the stage by one of the speakers. It was both inspiring and motivating, but as I listened, I know it was something I wanted to pass on to my family.
I bought the hardback version which tells you something of the degree to which I believe this is an absolute classic.
However, if like me you are more of a realist than an optimist, you will particularly like the notes of caution and realism peppered amongst the positivity. My favourites: 'Un-slumping yourself is not easily done.' And: 'Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.'
Baby shower, Christening or “just because you care”? Step away from the overpriced “baby’s first tooth” rubbish and don’t concern yourself with keepsake baby booties! Just buy a butt load of these books and keep them in the cupboard. Every time your mate drops a little sproglet, dig one out and write a touching message in the title page. Just make sure you spell their name right…
It is absolutely beautiful and the words fit perfectly for the occasion. The book itself is presented with a hard illustrated case and the book,well,truly magnificent. It should be with her, to read occasionally,for a very long time!
