Mulberry Street - Dr. Seuss


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.

"But now I don't know . . .
It still doesn't seem right.
An elephant pulling a thing that's so light
Would whip it around in the air like a kite.
But he'd look simply grand
With a great big brass band!"

New features only available in this omBook include professional narration, background audio and enlarged artwork for each scene. To promote reading in young children, individual words are highlighted as the story is read and words zoom up when pictures are touched. By combining the original text and artwork of Dr. Seuss with features that entertain and promote reading, this omBook appeals to readers of all ages.

Recommended Ages: 3 - 6

Trivia:
-The manuscript was rejected by twenty-seven publishing houses for being too fantasy based and different.

Great book; contains a small typo "Look!" I cried. "Look! Look Look!" At my brand-new copy of an old favorite book, Nearly so perfect in beauteous splendor, Seemed as polished as a shiny chrome fender. Nay, but the tiniest typo appears: "With a roar of it's motor"... no apostrophe here! Mistake found on the go on my tablet so fleet, And to think that I found it in 'Mulberry Street'!

Greatest app ever My son used to scream in the car on long rides since I purchased the books I just give it to him and he's quiet. It makes running errands easy now my 2 yr old loves it. Sometimes we even use it before bed.
