Synopses & Reviews
Poor Dick and Sally. It's cold and wet and they're stuck in the house with nothing to do . . . until a giant cat in a hat shows up, transforming the dull day into a madcap adventure and almost wrecking the place in the process! Written by Dr. Seuss in 1957 in response to the concern that "pallid primers [with] abnormally courteous, unnaturally clean boys and girls" were leading to growing illiteracy among children, The Cat in the Hat (the first Random House Beginner Book) changed the way our children learn how to read.
Join the Cat in the Hat as he makes learning to read a joy — not a task.
This beloved classic Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss is fun to read aloud and easy to read alone. Written using 236 different words that any first or second grader can read, this timeless book is a fixture in home and school libraries and a favorite among parents, beginning readers, teachers, and librarians.
