Dr. Seuss's very first book for children! From a mere horse and wagon, young Marco concocts a colorful cast of characters, making Mulberry Street the most interesting location in town. Dr. Seuss's signature rhythmic text, combined with his unmistakable illustrations, will appeal to fans of all ages, who will cheer when our hero proves that a little imagination can go a very long way. (Who wouldn't cheer when an elephant-pulled sleigh raced by?) Now over seventy-five years old, this story is as timeless as ever. And Marco's singular kind of optimism is also evident in McElligot's Pool.

Frog and Toad’s Laws of Literary Motion

In my years selecting children’s books for the library, I have often envied the mathematical certainty of the hard sciences.  After all, when the Pythagorean theorem doesn’t work, it’s usually our own bad arithmetic at fault, and Plank’s Constant isn’t exactly wishy-washy.  It’s a little more difficult to make sense of children’s literature sometimes.  Perhaps this arises from the fact that its...

Daisy-Head Mayzie, by Dr. Seuss, is another original and imaginative story that is a lot of fun to read! I think that younger audiences will definitely appreciate the book’s humour, and will be very engaged with the creative and quirky story line. I love the rhyming that Seuss always incorporates, which makes reading a lot more enjoyable and fun for younger audiences! I thought that this story was very cute, and I loved how the main character was a young girl, with whom other readers can relate with. I think that this is a great book for kids and adults to read together, which is why I would recommend it to other readers @PenelopeScriptor of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

I like Dr. Suess books, but in the book _And to think I saw it on Mulberry Street_, the words, "Say --ANYone could think of THAT
Jack or Fred or Joe or Nat--
Say even Jane could think of THAT"

This implies females don't think and it is a gender bias. I don't like it; however, it was first published in 1937 and this has probably has something to do with it.

FEMALES, girls and women think.

A classic. Best aimed at the 3 to 7 year olds, but great from birth til much much older. It's about imagination, which is vital at every age.

One of my favorites as a child; still one of my favorites.
