Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Amy McMillan
The Cat in the Hat is our guide on this journey to a nearby pond. In his fun, rhyming style he teaches readers about the various animals that inhabit the pond, from the tiniest of amoebas and to insects and amphibians, fish and birds. Life cycles also feature prominently in the text. This book is perfect for those readers who want more information but are not quite up to reading a more strenuous nonfiction book on their own. There are pronunciation guides for some of the longer, more scientific words sprinkled throughout the text as well as a glossary, an index and a list of resources for further reading at the back of the book. Part of "The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library" series. Reviewer: Amy McMillan
