not very great

I have seen worse movies but this movie is just bland and unengaging.

Is It Any Good?

AND TO THINK THAT I SAW IT ON MULBERRY STREET, like most Seuss stories, is enchanting in its rhythmic rhymes and simple yet colorful illustrations on a stark white background. And it's historic, too, as the first book Seuss penned for children. In this book, a little boy named Marco envisions all sort of amazing things on his way home from school, and Seuss brings all of Marco's imaginings to life with his illustrations. On this app, pages pan and zoom to keep kids engaged with the (rather long) story.

Is this the most fun, exciting, and entertaining Seuss storybook app available? Perhaps not. For Seuss enthusiasts, though, this app is a must-have in the collection, if for no other reason than it's his first children's book. After reading this book, it's easy to see how Seuss developed his iconic style that remains a favorite 75 years later.
