SUMMARY: The Cat in the Hat takes two of his friends on a tour around the world as he informs them about animals that are mammals.

REVIEW: I believe that children will really enjoy this book. "The Cat in the Hat" stories are always a favorite among young children, mostly because of the silly rhymes and colorful, fun illustrations. While being an entertaining read for kids, this book in particular is also full of informative facts about mammals. Told in rhymes, The Cat in the Hat takes his friends around the world and shows them all sorts of creatures that would be considered mammals. An example of this is when he is describing the smallest mammal: "What's the world's smallest mammal?/ I've brought one for you./ It weighs less than a dime./ It's this cute...pygmy shrew!" Children will enjoy learning about all sorts of mammals through silly rhymes and illustrations. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679873023, Hardcover)

From pygmy shrews to bandicoots, this book will remind you it's not just Dr. Seuss who created strange and wonderful creatures! Is a Camel a Mammal? discusses myriad mammals in the entertaining rhythms that made Seuss famous. While the Cat in the Hat is the central narrator of this fact-filled tale, count on Thing One and Thing Two for supplying the actions that accompany such tidbits as "Their hair can be soft, like the fur of a kitten, or the wool from a lamb that you knit from a mitten." While the author forced some of the rhymes, the book still makes a great starting place for early readers with a serious interest in unusual animals. A sure hit for post-zoo story time. (Preschool to early reader) --Jill Lightner
