When Sally and Nick need to learn about babysitting, the Cat in the Hat takes them to meet an expert: King Cecil the Sea Horse! That's because when it comes to having babies, sea horses give birth in a very special way. The mom sea horse puts her eggs into a pouch on the dad, and he carries them there until the babies hatch (in his pouch) and swim out! Perfect for summer reading, nights with the babysitter, Father's Day--any day, really--this Little Golden Book based on an episode of the PBS Kids television show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! will keep kids laughing, teach them about a very unique animal, and even inspire conversations about gender roles!
About Tish Rabe
Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Geisel in Springfield, Massachusetts on March 2, 1904. After attending Dartmouth College and Oxford University, he began a career in advertising. His advertising cartoons, featuring Quick, Henry, the Flit!, appeared in several leading American magazines. Dr. Seusss first children's book, And To Think I Saw It On Mulberry Street hit the market in 1937, and the world of children's literature was changed forever! In 1957, Seuss's The Cat in the Hat became the prototype for one of Random House's best- selling series, Beginner Books. This popular series combined engaging stories with outrageous illustrations and playful sounds to teach basic reading skills. Brilliant, playful, and always respectful of children, Dr. Seuss charmed his way into the consciousness of four generations of youngsters and parents. In the process, he helped kids learn to read.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize in 1984 and two Academy Awards, Seuss was the author and illustrator of 44 childrens books, some of which have been made into audiocassettes, animated television specials, and videos for children of all ages. Even after his death in 1991, Dr. Seuss continues to be the best-selling author of children's books in the world.
