100 Word Wednesday: Mulberry Street

In honor of National Read Across America Day {and Dr. Seuss’ Birthday!}, my favorites include The Lorax, Cat in the Hat, Oh The Places You’ll Go, 10 Apples Up On Top…the list goes on, but today I’ll give my 100 Word Wednesday Tribute to And to Think that I saw it on Mulberry Street {coincidentally, his first published book!}.

And speaking of Seuss, Seussical is a fantastic show – the music is so fun! Our boys played Thing 1 and Thing 2 in a 60’s inspired version of the show last year – their favorite performance to date in the theatre. Needless to say, on many levels: We’re artial to Dr. Seuss – “Anythings Possible!”  🙂

“And to think that I saw it on Mulberry Street!” the boy exclaims. His imagination, not to be thwarted by his stern father, is sparked by a very ordinary, mundane walk to school.

The child imagines, dreams, finds the ordinary extraordinary – and how can he not? Illustrating the imagery of his imagination, the excitement builds, makes a fabulous story.

But wait, his father encourages him to tell the truth: “Stop telling such outlandish tales”. Why squash his creativity and storytelling?

Nay, I say. I say, today is the day – Hurrah! Write something amazing, something untrue, something that captivates you!
