Typical Dr. Seuss fare. It wasn't one of my favourites as a kid, but I liked it okay.

Different than really any of the other picture books I read, Street kept me thinking long after it was done. Sure I loved Subway and Crayon, but this was a story where it made me take into greater consideration the implications of the plot. More specifically, I found myself asking: what was the point of the boy not saying his fantasy to his father; could it have something to do with keeping his own sense of wonder as long as possible? Was that the lesson the father set out to teach in the first place? Even as I am revisiting my first reactions to the story, I am still trying to grapple with these ideas literally months later. As such, Street is a picture book I could definitely see as being enjoyed/analyzed by an age group beyond that of developing readers. ( )

I think this book is a great way in which children can let their imagination run wild. ( )

Macro allows his imagination run wild as he travels home from school with an abundance of colorful creatures. ( )
