Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.
Mrs. Millie is really silly. She loves to substitute animal words for other words when talking to her kindergarten class. On a class trip to Philadelphia, the kids board a "platypus" (school bus), "hold hens with their buddies" (hold hands with their buddies), and visit the "Liberty Bull" (Liberty Bell). The students love to laugh and correct their favorite teacher. What fun! Joe Mathieu's colored pencil, pen, and ink artwork literally interprets each of Mrs. Millie's "mistakes" and adds hilarity to this lighthearted read-aloud about the city of brotherly love.
Max wants to feel needed, but no one wants his help with anything. Then his aunts show up for a visit—and they need his help with everything. Between making their snacks, running their baths, fixing their appliances, and preparing their beds, Max is exhausted. Will they ever leave so Max can get back to relaxing?
“The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library shows young readers that books can be entertaining and educational at the same time. This is a wonderful series!” —Barbara Kiefer, Ph.D., Charlotte S. Huck Professor of Children’s Literature, Ohio State University
Every morning at school, Mrs. Millie says, "Please hang up your book bugs."
The kindergarteners know she means book bags, and they laugh whenever their teacher talks silly. On Mrs Millie's birthday, the children decide to throw a surprise party. They decorate the classroom with baboons (balloons) and set out chocolate cubcakes (cupcakes) and apple moose (juice). Mrs. Millie has never enjoyed such a wonderful bird-day! The illustrations rendered in Prismacolor pencil, dyes, pen, and ink highlight the fun in this classroom romp.
