The Cat and the Hat is a fun filled children’s book by Dr. Seuss which tells the story of two children Conrad and Sally Walden who are home alone with their pet fish. It is raining outside, and there is nothing to do. There is a knock at the door and a cat with a tall red and white hat walks in and introduces them to a whole new world filled with fun and games. That is until things get out of hand. Their home is in a mess and the children fear they will not get the mess cleaned up before their parents get home. But the Cat and the Hat has everything under control and they get everything cleaned up just in time. ( )

I have always loved Dr. Seuss. I love his simplistic approach to writing. His stories are great for building the confidence of any beginning reader!!

This is a fun book by Dr. Suess. It is filled with rhyming words that the chidren will love to learn. It also teaches about tidying up as you are done playing and to do as your mother says. ( )

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

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.
