The Cat in the Hat, Sally, and Dick visit with nocturnal animals and learn about their special adaptations for surviving in the dark! Along with Thing One and Thing Two, the gang meet a host of common critters (among them raccoons, owls, and bats), as well as more exotic creatures (including aye-ayes, sidewinders, and kiwi birds), all of whom are active during the night and sleep during the day. Beginning readers will learn how eye shine makes some animals’ eyes glow in the dark, how bats can “see” in the dark using high-pitched squeaks, and much, much more! Ideal for supporting the Common Core State Standards and a natural for fans of the hit PBS Kids show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!, this is a great way to introduce beginning readers to science!
