We are on a Seuss kick this week! And the countdown is on to his birthday on Friday and the opening of The Lorax! Today we had some friends over and had some fun with Dr. Seuss’ And to Think I Saw It on Mulberry Street [Random House, 1967].
We read the story and used paint and paper towel rolls to create Imagination Spy Scopes. In the story Marco imagines all sorts of crazy sights as he walks home from school.
They “saw” many spectacular sights such as candy people, a sleeping snake, dragons and animals that had escaped from the zoo!
How have you used books to activate imaginations and inspire pretend play?
