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!"
— Barbara Kiefer, Associate Professor, Reading and Literature
Teachers College, Columbia University
School Library Journal
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.

    Great book for dinosaur lovers

    My son absolutely loves dinosaurs and went wild over this book. I love Dr. Seuss books in general but this one is informative and funny to read. Great for kids 4-10.

    Never received my book

    It has been a month since I ordered this book, and noticed shortly after ordering it that I was refunded my money. The status says it was shipped, but to this day, I have not received it, and have not received an explanation as to why my money was refunded and I why I don't have it, yet it still says that it was sent out. Not happy.
