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!
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.
