Poor Dick and Sally. It’s cold and wet and they are 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 to read.
He is also an old standby, but he never lets us down. When in doubt, turn to the story of the cat that transformed a dull, rainy afternoon into a magical and just-messy-enough adventure. There’s another, hidden adventure, too: this book in point of fact will help children learn how to read. With his simple and continuously single-vowel vocabulary, the good Doctor knew what he was once doing: hear it, learn it, read it–laughing the entire way. The Cat in the Hat is a will have to for any child’s library.
