Dr Seuss ignites a child’s imagination with his mischievous characters and zany verses and he doesn’t disappoint with The Cat in the Hat. This is the story of the cat that transformed a dull, rainy afternoon into a magical and just-messy-enough adventure. There’s another hidden adventure too – this book really does help children to read.
Although most of our grade twos had already heard this classic tale, all of them enjoyed listening to it again. The words at the end of the book “Should we tell her about it? Now, what SHOULD we do? Well….. What would you do if your mother asked you?” promoted some interesting discussion about telling the truth. We all agreed in the end that honesty is the best policy!
