|Oh, that darn cat! May 10, 2008|
|In my opinion, this is, besides being the most well-known concept of Dr. Seuss, one of the best things he has written save "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" Tis the season of Seuss right now, and as I read this book to my class I was once again enchanted by the sheer awesomeness of this story. The writing has an awesome beat and flow and the pictures are hilarious! Who can not love the banter between Cat and Fish with their surprisingly detailed personalities? Great book for a rainy day. |
|Cat in da hat rocks! Feb 23, 2008|
|This is the first book i read to my son that he didn't cry to and listened to the end at only 6 weeks! I'm sure it was just that he was in a good mood though!|
|Timeless Classic Feb 10, 2008|
|When I can, I plan to purchase the entire series of Dr. Seuss books for my child being that his style of poetic prose is so appealing to children. It presents concepts in a way that don't stop to make them "think"; yet encourage a style of their own "brain-storming" that allows them to try to understand how silly chit-chat can become something interesting in a very sensible; yet diverse manner.

|Great bilingual Cat in the Hat! Feb 10, 2008|
|I have this delightful book in English, Japanese, Spanish, and now in Chinese. Availability in all these languages is magnificent for children for many reasons. It allows children of these linguistic background to enjoy this great book. It is a wonderful attitudinal validation of these languages, especially if read in a school setting where English is the predominant language of instructin. This is valuable for chldren of every linguistic background. It contributes to the appreciation and awareness of these languages. This is so very important for inter-linguistic/cultural harmony and understanding. All of these benefits through a story that is so much fun!!!|
|Big D's Review Jan 31, 2008|
| The Cat in the Hat is a funny and wacky and crazy book but is definitely for the younger crowd. The author is Dr. Seuss. In this book, he expresses his talent in more ways than you can imagine. The younger crowd is amazed and dazzled at what this book is about. The book is about 2 kids at home all alone on a rainy day. They can't find anything to do. Then, they hear a noise and a hilarious, crazy, and zany cat comes out of nowhere and cheers up the kids with things that the kids did not even think was possible! I would rate this book 5 stars no doubt!|
