The General Gist: The other Oh, You Can book that tells you to think outside the box.
Story Review: Simplistic rhyme scheme with whimsical (although typical) Seuss drawings, language, and message. I like that made up words are set apart by being in all caps the first time around and I love the message that you can think anything. The illustrations on the page aren’t only dreamy, they’re impossible ideas right in front of you eyes, and because there is no protagonist, the thinker is you the reader. Now if only there was a rubber meets road part to the part I would be completely over the moon.
Immersion Activity Ideas:
Visit Seuss’s Sculpture garden in Springfield, MA
Visit Theodore Geisel’s childhood home (and to think it is on Mulberry St. in Springfield)
Encourage your (or your child’s) imagination. (Paint, sing, cook, dance, work on your big dream, and of course PLAY)
