The Cat in the Hat, Sally, and Dick visit with nocturnal animals and learn about their special adaptations for surviving in the dark! Along with Thing One and Thing Two, the gang meet a host of common critters (among them raccoons, owls, and bats), as well as more exotic creatures (including aye-ayes, sidewinders, and kiwi birds), all of whom are active during the night and sleep during the day. Beginning readers will learn how eye shine makes some animals’ eyes glow in the dark, how bats can “see” in the dark using high-pitched squeaks, and much, much more! Ideal for supporting the Common Core State Standards and a natural for fans of the hit PBS Kids show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, this is a great way to introduce beginning readers to science!
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.
