Oh the Thinks You Can Think!
Reviewed by Kayla King
Oh the Thinks You Can Think! is one of those lovely little children’s books that is able to cross time and space and years to mean just as much to the adults who read it. In this whimsical world filled with classic Dr. Seuss nonsense, there is a message that YOU CAN THINK! You can imagine, which means all of us, young or old, can think and wonder and imagine, too!
The illustrations within this book are just as fantastic as one would expect from Dr. Seuss. The colors range from the pinkest pinks to the bluest blues and even some pages shrouded in darkness. All at once, the pages are silly until suddenly, they become very serious. They tell us to “think left and think right and think low and think high. Oh, the thinks you can think up if only you try!”
Now, in a media-obsessed world, it’s nice to know that along with the tweets we can tweet there are also thinks we can think. Maybe some of those THINKS will exist in 140 characters or less. But maybe they will build the next wonder of the world or write the next great novel or save mankind with a tremendous thought ready to become a real-life Think.
Dr. Seuss’s Oh the Thinks You Can Think! is a tale that reminds us all that we have the power to create whatever we want using only our minds. It’s really that simple. And hey, if we can “think about Kitty O’Sullivan Krauss in her big balloon swimming pool over her house,” then the sky is the limit (for both Kitty and us, too!) and anything is possible!
So thank you Dr. Seuss, for teaching us that we can think and think and think and never run out of Thinks! Maybe they will become real and we can keep them close by. Maybe they will even become house pets! Who knows, right? We need only THINK!
