Back in 1957, Theodor Geisel responded to an article in Life magazine that lamented the use of boring reading primers in schools. Using the pseudonym of "Dr. Seuss" (Seuss was Geisel's middle name) and only two hundred twenty-three words, Geisel created a replacement for those dull primers: "The Cat in the Hat." The instant success of the book prompted Geisel and his wife to found Beginner Books, and Geisel wrote many popular books in this series, including "Hop on Pop, " "Fox in Socks, " and "Green Eggs and Ham." Other favorite titles in this series are "Go, Dog, Go!" and "Are You My Mother?" by P. D. Eastman, "A Fly Went By, " by Mike McClintock, and "Put Me in the Zoo, " by Robert Lopshire. These affordable hardcover books combine large print, easy vocabulary, and large, bright illustrations in stories kids will want to read again and again. Grades 1 - Grades 2.

About the Author

THEODOR SEUSS GEISEL--aka Dr. Seuss--is one of the most beloved children's book authors of all time. From The Cat in the Hat to Oh, the Places You'll Go!, his iconic characters, stories, and art style have been a lasting influence on generations of children and adults. The books he wrote and illustrated under the name Dr. Seuss (and others that he wrote but did not illustrate, including some under the pseudonyms Theo. LeSieg and Rosetta Stone) have been translated into thirty languages. Hundreds of millions of copies have found their way into homes and hearts around the world. Dr. Seuss's long list of awards includes Caldecott Honors for McElligot's Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, and Bartholomew and the Oobleck, the Pulitzer Prize, and eight honorary doctorates. Works based on his original stories have won three Oscars, three Emmys, three Grammys, and a Peabody. Dr. Seuss's never-before-seen picture book What Pet Should I Get? will be published on July 28, 2015. The rediscovered book captures a classic childhood moment--the selection of a pet--and uses it to illustrate a life-lesson: that it is hard to make up your mind, but that sometimes you just have to do it!

and the cat in the hat likes it but don’t just
in nick of time it all go’s right! This is a book
for all ages.
Randall on
A great children's classic the cat in the hat is a favorite for my daughter. I find him a little frustrating, barging into the house and wreaking havoc while the kids parents are away. Fortunately everything turns out ok, until he returns in The Cat In The Hat Comes Back! A great rhyming book every child should have.
Jonathon on
One of the most popular children's books of all time, and Dr Seuss' best, The Cat in the Hat is a story about two children left on their own. Bored because it is raining outside, things get interesting when a cat shows up to play with them. Naughty and irresponsible, the Cat starts causing trouble, despite a pet goldfish trying to put a stop to it. Wildly entertaining for kids; this book is great at help them learn to read with its rhyming patterns.
Susan on
Like all Seuss books, this is one to read out loud with your children. The rhymes and rhythms are so much fun. The adventurous cat is sure to entertain children with his energetic antics. One of the classics of children's literature in my opinion. All children should read this book.
Sarah-Jayne on
The Dr Seuss books are always a favourite amongst the children, although I think this book appeals more to boys than girls. The rhyming and word plays in the book never fail to excite and delight children and appeal to their imagination. The storyline is the winner here, with the illustrations almost letting the book down (in my own opinion of course).
Alysia on
What a great book. I loved it as a child, and have had so much pleasure passing on this wacky, zany tale about what to get up to when mum is not around. The tongue twisting rymes, and crazy antics entrall both reader and listener. One of the must have classic story books for all children.
deb on

This would have to be the best classic book from Dr seuss about a cat in the hat how comes to play with 2 children on a rainy day. with lots of fun installed your child will love this book. highly recomended
Jennifer on
My kids love this story! The things that The Cat in the Hat does on that rainy wet day,letting out his pets Thing One and Thing Two against their goldfish's will,what trobule they all get into,what a mess the house is in,will they be able to clean it up before their mother comes home? A must read for the kids.
Daniel on
while the movie for this book sucked, the book itself is very enjoyable. The story of two kids left with a babysitter, meeting up with a giant cat and getting up to all sorts of mischef, highly reccomended. Very well written and uniquely illustrated, this is one of the best childrens books ever made.
Dale on
Cat in the hat is a story every kid was read when they were in primary school (as well as "Are You My Mother?" lol). I always loved stories by Dr Seuss, the cat is still as popular today with the young kids as he was when he first came out. If you can get your hands on some Dr Seuss books for your kids then do so, they'll love them! Highly recommended 5/5
