Dr. Seuss's first children's book, “And to Think That I Saw it on MULBERRY STREET,” instantly captivated parents and children when it arrived in bookstores in 1937. Now 75 years later you can enjoy this pivotal story as an interactive omBook!
Marco walks to school along Mulberry Street keeping his eyes peeled for interesting sites to share with his dad. But today all he sees is a boring old horse and wagon. “That's nothing to tell of, that won't do, of course”. . . so Marco envisions much more exciting events, each more elaborate than the last. The horse and wagon turn into a zebra and charioteer, then to an elephant with a sleigh as Marco's imagination goes on a wild ride down Mulberry Street.
Musician had never read And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street before, so I thought it was endearing to see how excited he got as he read how Marco saw so many neat things on Mulberry street, such as the blue elephant pulling a sleigh.
He did get concerned at one point in the story, fearing that all of the animals, the policemen, and vehicles Marco saw would crash, but ultimately Musician really enjoyed the story and all of the cool things Marco encountered on Mulberry Street.
As with other omBooks, if Musician had trouble reading a word, he simply had to touch it to hear what the word is supposed to sound like.
And he loved touching the images on the screen to see different words pop up, which I thought was a great reinforcer.
Musician loved reading And to Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street on the iPad, and I really enjoyed listening to him read it, as it brought back memories of the first time I read the book years and years ago...
