And to think that YOU saw it on Mulberry Street

Maryellen and mulberry streetMaryellen Rooney Moreau with Braidy the StoryBraid® and Story Grammar Marker®, holding a copy of Dr. Seuss’ Horton Hatches the Egg! (right) Mulberry Street is a 10-minute walk from our office and it is this Mulberry Street in Springfield that inspired Dr. Seuss’ first published book And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street. Today, Maryellen took a drive over (it is way too cold and snowy to walk) with Braidy® and SGM® for a Dr. Seuss photo opportunity in honor of Dr. Seuss Day.  Dr. Seuss would have been 111 on March 2nd and he grew up right here in Springfield, MA.

“Map of mulberry streetThis morning we saw a number of Facebook, Twitter and Instagram photos with the Dr. Seuss theme. Our cousin, Marybeth Rooney Anderson (below), a Reading Coach in Fairfax County Schools in Virginia loves to dress up and read a Dr. Seuss book with her students, she also loves to use Story Grammar Marker®.

MaryBeth as SeussSince it is Dr. Seuss Day, the International Business Times wrote an article that highlights some of Dr. Seuss’ most inspirational quotes: Number 18 on this list is “Will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and 3/4 percent guaranteed.),” which is one of my personal favorites from Oh The Places You’ll Go. It is interesting to note that And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street, was rejected by 27 publishers until a friend of Theodore Geisel’s from Dartmouth bought it and published it, according to a 2012 New York Times article. Dr. Seuss has since sold over 600 million books to date. He certainly DID succeed!

Horton Hatches the Egg is one of the books featured in our publication East Meets West. The East Meets West series analyzes 22 books for narrative structure, vocabulary, cultural aspects and expository features. This 8-page excerpt is available as a FREE download below. Enjoy!
