Happy 110th birthday Dr. Seuss! In honor of Dr. Seuss' Birthday, on March 2nd , I have put together a fun Mulberry Street Unit Study full of activities, crafts, snacks, and a sensory bin to accompany one of my all time favorite Dr. Seuss books – And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street.
More on those in a minute…First, about the book!
And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street was the very first book published by Dr. Seuss. It made it’s debut on the shelves in 1937, after it was originally rejected by 20 different publishers! He titled it Mulberry Street after the street he grew up on. A silly, and fanciful story of a little boy named Marco as he tells of the amazing things he imagined he saw along the road.
And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street is perfect for a Unit Study of whimsical activities and some good old fashioned nonsense. There are also many opportunities for discussion on what it means to “Turn minnows into whales” and making up stories compared to telling fibs. But this book is a wonderful reminder to let your imagination take you to wonderful places. Perhaps your little tall tale teller will turn into an imaginative author one day, lest you too often say, “Stop telling such outlandish tales. Stop turning minnows into whales.”
