Back in 1957, Theodor Geisel responded to an article in Life magazine that lamented the use of boring reading primers in schools. Using the pseudonym of "Dr. Seuss" (Seuss was Geisel's middle name) and only two hundred twenty-three words, Geisel created a replacement for those dull primers: "The Cat in the Hat." The instant success of the book prompted Geisel and his wife to found Beginner Books, and Geisel wrote many popular books in this series, including "Hop on Pop, " "Fox in Socks, " and "Green Eggs and Ham." Other favorite titles in this series are "Go, Dog, Go!" and "Are You My Mother?" by P. D. Eastman, "A Fly Went By, " by Mike McClintock, and "Put Me in the Zoo, " by Robert Lopshire. These affordable hardcover books combine large print, easy vocabulary, and large, bright illustrations in stories kids will want to read again and again. Grades 1 - Grades 2.

    I like this book because it is funny. Here's a little sneak peek: the Cat in the Hat has lots of cats in his hat, and they make a big mess. 😉 ☺️

              This is a book about the Cat in the Hat coming back to Nick and Sally's house and he made a pink dot in the bathtub, and then it gets all over the place, and he has little Cat in the Hats that go from A to Z. I really loved this book. I don't get to read it a lot, but I love it!
