This Father Kept a Secret From His Daughter for 13 Years but It Was the Best Secret Ever

When most of us graduate, we probably expect the usual gifts like cards and money but this father wanted to give something more meaningful.

When Bryan Martin gave his daughter Brenna a gift bag with a classic copy of “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” by Dr Seuss inside, she didn’t know what to expect. He then told her to open it up and upon viewing the first page, Brenna noticed a short paragraph written by her kindergarten teacher.

She started tearing up but was still confused. Her father then said “Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I’ve gotten every teacher, coach, and principal to write a little something about you inside this book.”

Bryan Martin had a gift 13 years in the making to give his daughter Brenna at her high school graduation.


The priceless gift was a copy of the Dr Seuss classic ‘Oh, The Places You’ll Go!’ that had special messages from every one of her teachers, coaches, and principals from the past 13 years.


Brenna can’t express how much she loves her Dad and her family for the special gift.
