  • The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas!  (Dr. Seuss/Cat in the Hat)

    The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas! (Dr. Seuss/Cat in the Hat)
    This rhymed retelling of the hit PBS Kids holiday special The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas! is bound to become a cherished keepsake. Written in a style reminiscent of Clement Moore's 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, the book retells the story from the Cat's Christmas Eve Party through his various mishaps while attempting to return young reindeer Ralph home in time to pull Santa's sled. Along the way, readers are introduced to a herd of elephants with an uncanny ability to smell water; a pod of dolphins who can communicate across far distances; and a single-minded army of Christmas Island crabs—all of whom demonstrate how working together is the best way to solve a problem, and how being home for the holidays is the best place to be. A perfect gift for fans of the hit PBS Kids TV show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!—and an ideal choice for reading aloud—this is a book the whole family can enjoy together! 

    Step This Way (Dr. Seuss/Cat in the Hat)

    Step This Way (Dr. Seuss/Cat in the Hat)
    Step into reading with the Cat in the Hat in this leveled reader all about different kinds of animal feet! Sally and Nick are having shoe trouble. Sally can't stand up in her mom's shoes, and her dad's are too big for Nick. Not a problem, says the Cat. Feet come in all shapes and sizes, and to demonstrate, he takes them on a trip in the Thinga-ma-jigger to visit some friends: a duck with flat, wide feet good for swimming; a lemur with long, grasping toes good for climbing; and a gecko with tiny hairs on his feet that keep him from slipping. Written specifically for children learning how to read with help, this Step into Reading book about the different ways of "stepping" is based on an episode of the hit PBS Kids preschool science show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!

    Home For Christmas (Dr. Seuss/Cat in the Hat)

From the Cat's Christmas Eve Party (with animal guests from all over the world), through his mishaps while attempting to return a young reindeer home in time to pull Santa's sled, readers will be introduced to a herd of elephants with an uncanny ability to smell water, a pod of dolphins who can communicate across far distances, and a single-minded army of Christmas Island crabs—all of whom demonstrate how working together is the best way to solve a problem, and how being home for the holidays is the best place to be!

    The Tree Doctor (Dr. Seuss/Cat in the Hat)

    The Tree Doctor (Dr. Seuss/Cat in the Hat)
    When Sally and Nick's maple tree won't grow,  the Cat in the Hat knows who to call—Dr. Twiggles—who suggests they inspect its roots. A trip underground in the Thinga-ma-jigger is undertaken, and sure enough, the maple tree needs water (which Things One and Two procure in ridiculous overabundance) and sun (which the Cat suppliments with a Brighta-ma-lighter). But as for getting syrup from the young sapling? That will take some 40 years! Written specifically for children learing how to read with help, this Step into Reading book is based on an episode of the PBS Kids preschool science show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! It is perfect for springtime reading, Earth and Arbor Day celebrations, and yes—even pancake breakfasts!
