Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There is a big gap between 'concept' books written for preschoolers and nonfiction that requires fluent reading skills. The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library books introduce beginning readers to important basic concepts about the natural world. They provide the critical foundations upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be build. In addition, 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!"

K-Gr 3 Two titles that feature that favorite old cat, along with Thing One, Thing Two, and Sally and Dick. Both are told in rhythmic couplets. Di-no-saur introduces fossils using a museum as the setting. "With a club for a tail/and a back full of spikes,/this dino was strong /like an army tank. Yikes!" The dinosaurs' names are given, as well as their physical traits. Fish uses a deep-sea sub to take readers through five undersea zones, illustrating the types of fish that would be found at each depth. Even after close examination, the pictures cannot be easily distinguished from those drawn by Dr. Seuss. A good choice for kids who still like their nonfiction told in story form and laced with humor. Sharon R. Pearce, Geronimo Public School, OK Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
