      Here, started it everything A DATE AT MULBERRY STREET FOR IMMORTALITYThat can t be my story That s only a start.I ll say that a ZEBRA was pulling that cart.This is the very first story by Dr Seuss, here, started it all.And since this beginning, you can appreciate the distinctive style of Dr Seuss.A kid is walking to his home, and he s thinking what event will talk about with his dad that he saw in Mulberry Street the route to his home And obviously, never is too good, never is finished, always g [...]

    2. Archit Ojha says:
      Reading this in my kid voice, I rediscovered the joys of fabricating the reality as a child The way a child sees the world and interlaces with it his dreamy imaginations.As an adult, you know the difference between reality and fantasy but as a child it is all one fabric.Gives you an idea how we all used to blow up the realities when reciting a true event.I couldn t fully explain,Things were not so plain.How one thing led to another.How the giraffe became my friend s brother.

    3. [Shai] The Bibliophage says:
      How a plain horse and wagon on Mulberry StreetGrows into a story that no one can beatI love that ending part of the story and I ve just learnt that this is the very first children s book of Dr Seuss We know that children have a creative imagination and I guess that this book set as a reminder also for adults, such as parents and teachers, to let kids enhance that skill.

    4. Lee Thompson says:
      We got this from the library for 3 year old Rae She loved it She asked if all children have their imaginations strangled by adults like the kid in this book.

    5. Michael Finocchiaro says:
      Marvin spins a wonderful tale for his dad when he gets home from school turning minnows into whales I remember the pictures from when I was a kid and now can appreciate the way the story encourages imagination even if the dad is kind of a wet blanket at the end.

    6. ivana18 says:
      A very short and very sweet children s book A beautiful tale about one boy s vivid imagination This is my first Dr Seuss and I ll read of his creations, I have much respect for children s authors, while it might seem easy to write children s books, I m sure it s difficult than it looks This is simply lovely.I had a smile plastered on my face all the way trough.

    7. John Yelverton says:
      What a fantastic story about a child allowed to run free with his imagination The very first Dr Seuss book definitely tells you of the things to come.

    8. Kathryn says:
      Dr Seuss s first published children s book was certainly groundbreaking for its time It was, indeed, rejected 27 times before Seuss had a chance encounter with an friend turned editor whom he bumped into while walking in New York City one day see, awesome things do happen on average streets every day The editor took a chance on the young author illustrator and the rest, as they say, is history.I don t remember reading it as a kid, whether because I was not exposed to it or it simply wasn t that [...]

    9. Rupert Dreyfus says:
      We learn at the beginning of the story that a child called Marco has a vibrant imagination This vibrant imagination, however, tends to annoy his father who wants him to observe what he really sees on his journey to school and back It turns out that on this journey Marco only sees a horse and wagon He then wonders how he can make this mundane observation interesting and begins a sequence of modifications of the spectacle until Mulberry Street is bursting with a spectacular and unusual parade How [...]

    10. Shanna Gonzalez says:
      This is the first of Dr Seuss s books for children, and it is a good introduction to the imaginative creativity which opened his career as an enormously popular children s writer In this story a young boy walking home from school, and on seeing a simple horse and cart, embellishes it in his mind by first changing the animal, then the conveyance, then adds passengers, and so on, until the horse and cart are transformed into a veritable parade This is a quite enjoyable flight of imagination.Unfort [...]

      This children story handles one of the most children psychological issue it is confidence and how parents can switch it on or off come that it is for both children and adults PDF link for the Goodreaders www60.zippyshare v 1397265

    12. Navaneeta says:
      This story explains everything about how we transcend the ordinary in our day to day living, letting our imagination take us to a world of wish fulfillment How we transform the dreariness of a Mulberry street of life where nothing ever happens into an exciting world full of indian rajahs and chinese chopsticks, a confetti throwing airplane and a trailer pulled by an elephant And the most cruel part of the story is also what makes it so real Marco s telling his father with a red face that it was [...]

    13. McLean says:
      Reading this, it s pretty obvious that it s from before Seuss had really polished his style The usually flawless rhythm is occasionally spotty, and there s not the same level of giddy inventiveness present in so many of his other books At the same time, this book was written before Seuss had moved into using purely anapestic tetrameter, which makes for some interesting variety of sound While in some of his later works he would begin to break from the anapestic tetrameter model in very methodical [...]

    14. Gerry says:
      On a walk home from school Marco sees a horse and cart in Mulberry Street Wanting to tell his Dad something exciting, he imagines what it could turn out to be.His imagination runs riot and from a simple horse and cart, it metarmorphoses into a cart pulled by a zebra, then a chariot pulled by a zebra before we have a reindeer pulling a sledge, an elephant pulling a brass band and other incarnations before Sergeant Mulvaney escorts the whole shebang down Mulberry Street.Obviously it all happens on [...]

    15. Emilyn says:
      I really enjoyed this book it s the very first children s book Dr Seuss published and it does make one think I d recommend it to all my story telling friends because it reminds me of how I m always changing my story to try to make it better.It also made me sad because it shows about how imagination is often discouraged.

    16. Mushfiq says:
      An amazing book with so many life lessons Dr Seuss is just awesome with his writings we must get our kids, read his books.

    17. Mike says:
      Chinamen who eat with sticks just can t be beat as they re marching and singing down Mulberry Street.

    18. Rossy says:
      Such an imagination Maybe I d have liked it better if I had myself a little bit of it, lol

    19. Sonia says:
      It s a story about a boy who uses his imagination on his way home though it s sad he couldn t tell the tale to his father.

    21. Melissa says:
      So apparently this was the very first Suess book Published nearly 80 years ago it is a classic indeed I had never heard of this book before My stepdaughter was cleaning out her room at her mother s house and brought my son a giraffe that she was given at Easter Apparently, that giraffe had to do with this book so my son wanted me to read the book to him.Normally, right here I would give a synopsis of the book but there is a pressing issue I have to get into So the copy I read to my son was an o [...]

      I remembered books such as When the Grinch Stole Christmas and Green Eggs and Ham from my childhood, but the first time I happened upon this was in my local library last week.Theodor Seuss Geisel s first children s book is a charming tall tale about the power of imagination It tells the story of Marco, a boy heading home from school who has promised to tell his father what he sees on the way back He spots a horse and cart going down the street, and, upon deciding it s too uninteresting a story t [...]

    27. Stephanie Tara says:
      Dr Suess got off to a great big bang with this, his first children s book And we have a great big bang of a book too, complete with the full extent of his amazingly out there in the farthest reaches of the universe imagination How did he come up with that unbelievably addictive rhyme Legend says the train he took home from a trip that year the chug chug chug of the railsrt of stuck in his mind, his SEUSSIAN mind that isd was forever to be known as, well, Suessian rhyme.That s nothing to tell of, [...]


    28. Dolly says:
      Imaginative story that also speaks about telling the truth It has the classic rhythmic, rhyming narrative and fantastical, cartoonish illustrations that we ve come to expect from books by Dr Seuss I know that I ve read this at least a couple of times.This book was featured as one of the selections for the March 2015 Dr Seuss reads for the Picture Book Club in the Children s Books Group here at.
