Es curioso, intente leerle este libro a mi sobrino y nada mas no quiso, prefirió ver la versión animada; supongo tendré que inculcarle un poco de amor por la lectura, bueno...
Lo encontré bastante entretenido (aunque es muy breve, pero entretenido), creo le daré una oportunidad a otros libros del autor, tal vez lograré que mi sobrino se anime y me deje leérle alguno.

This is a classic in the children's book world! Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss? In fact, I remember when this book was read to myself. If you're looking for a fun, easy read this is a must have. ( )

Classic wacky Dr. Seuss book. Who doesn't love Dr. Seuss? Great illustrations which can help young readers understand the text. Easy and fun to read. Sally and her brother are realistic characters which could also help a young reader relate to the book. Especially the beginning when Sally and her brother are sitting impatiently watching the rain and very, very bored because it is too wet to play outside. ( )

In my opinion this is a great book! I really love the illustrations! They are so detailed and explanatory. The reader can look at the illustrations before, during, and after reading to get a more clear explanation as to what is going on. When the cat in the hat is balancing the books, dishes, fish, rake, milk, and umbrella the reader can look at the picture to get a better understanding of how much of a mess it will make if it falls.
I also really liked the characters. Sally and her brother are so realistic. The fish is also very realistic. He is like another sibling (the oldest) who is thinking about the consequences if mother gets home and see the house destroyed.
The main idea of this story is to always do what you know if right even if it isn't the fun decision because the consequences are never worth it. Also, do not let strange cats into your house. ( )

This is classic book to be used in a lesson about rhyming. This is also a book to use in celebrating Dr. Seus Day!

The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house all that cold, cold, wet day.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 039480001X, Hardcover)

He may be an old standby, but he never lets us down. When in doubt, turn to the story of the cat that transformed a dull, rainy afternoon into a magical and just-messy-enough adventure. There's another, hidden adventure, too: this book really will help children learn to read. With his simple and often single-vowel vocabulary, the good Doctor knew what he was doing: hear it, learn it, read it--laughing all the way. The Cat in the Hat is a must for any child's library.
