This book is about a little boy who was on his way to school and on the way back. He saw a horse and cart and and used his mind to think of what all it could be.
This book is about a little boy Marco, who has an amazing imagination that he uses to stretch the truth. This is a great rhyming book and a fun read aloud. It can also be a lesson to children about being truthful.
This is my favorite of all of the books by Dr. Suess. It starts off simply with a father's typical admonishment to his child...tell me what you see on the way to school. Unfortunately, all Marco sees is a plain horse and wagon on Mulberry Street. So he decides to build on this event, and the book takes off from there with the story growing more and more involved. It provides a great opportunity to talk to children about the difference between our imaginations and honesty.
While Marco is walking home he imagines a story, he sees a horse drawn wagon on Mulberry St. That wasn't exciting so the horse turned into a zebra and a wagon into a chariot. But the zebra was too small so the reindeer was a better choice then the chariot became a sled skidding down Mulberry St. But that isn't as grand as an elephant pulling a brass band pulling a trailer with a man. With all of this there must've a police escort, of course. But when Marco gets home it turns back into a horse pulling a man in a wagon.
