“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
Fans of the hit PBS Kids' TV show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! have cause to celebrate—all year round! In this ebook featuring two books in one, the Cat and Co. go, go, go, GO on an adventure to the magical Garden of Seasons, where they are able to see how the change in temperature affects plants and animals. Among the new friends they meet is a snowshoe hare whose brown fur turns white to help him hide in the snow, a tadpole who turns into a frog and then hibernates during the winter, and a Canadian goose gosling who grows up and migrates south in the fall. All in all, this is a perfect introduction to the yearly cycle that can be enjoyed any time of the year!
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.
Moose is amazed when he sees a sign by the side of the road that says "Moose Crossing." He must be very important to have his own sign, although his best friend, Hildy, doesn’t agree. When tourists arrive, hoping to catch sight of him, Moose finds he can’t go anywhere without being recognized. Suddenly his life isn’t as simple as it used to be. Maybe being famous isn’t all that great. Stephanie Green’s witty humor and Joe Mathieu’s lively black-and-white artwork make this a not-to-be-missed transitional reading book.
Mrs. Millie has lots of fun teasing her kindergartners. She tells them to hang up their goats, eat gorilla cheese sandwiches, and to remember to wear their bats and kittens when they go outside for recess. Coupled with hilarious artwork that literally interprets each of Mrs. Millie’s "mistakes," this lighthearted read-aloud sets a typical school day on its ear, even as it teaches a subtle lesson on wordplay.
