That fabulous Cat in the Hat was worth at least two visits!

All Dr. Seuss books are my favorites! The Cat in the Hat is one of the most famous characters that Dr. Seuss created, and The Cat in the Hat Comes Back is a delightful continuation of the madcap havoc that Dr. Seuss created for little people and their parents with the original The Cat in the Hat.

That Cat was a total scamp – one we loved to read about, and our kids will still.

Dr. Seuss created many memorable characters – but the Cat in the Hat is one that most people would recognize on the street.

The Cat in the Hat and the Cat in the Hat Came Back

Even though the Cat in Hat had a simple vocabulary, Dr. Seuss had to work six months to bring it all together! Cat in the Hat revolutionized children’s books – taking them from simple boring Dick and Jane books to reading that was actually fun.

Cat in the Hat was Made to be Readable

Dick and Jane had to go stand in the Corner

Getting kids to read was a hot topic in the year Cat in the Hat was created.

The book “Why can’t Johnny Read?” had been just been published.

Dr. Seuss took on the challenge of creating a reader kids would like to read – and especially had read to them. Dr. Seuss is a poet for kids – his books are made to be read out loud.

He was given a list of a few hundred simple words and he was asked to come up with a new reader. This was difficult for him, and he struggled with the project for months. It is told that he at one point said that he would base the story on the first two words from the list that rhymed.

He found two easy to work with words “cat” and “hat” One of the words was “cat.” The other was “hat.”

Cat in the Hat made Dick and Jane say bye -bye.

People have loved to have stories read to them and told to them from the beginning of time. It is one of the most popular activities in all classrooms.

Dr. Seuss used sound of language to help bring kids in to the wonderful word of reading.

Dr. Seuss didn’t take NO for an answer

And to think I saw it on Mulberry Street was Theodor Seuss Geisel’s first book.

It was rejected by 27 publishers until the book was finally picked up by Vanguard Press.

Many Dr. Seuss books followed, 60 in total. Most had the Dr. Seuss pen-name but some were penned by Theo LeSieg. One book was written by Rosetta Stone!

I am so glad knew that his books had to get out there.

The Cat in the Hat was his 13th book, The Cat in the Hat Comes Back
was his sixteenth.

The naughty kitties race around creating one mess after another until the children throw up their hands in exasperation.
What will happen – Will the kids get in BIG TROUBLE when Mom comes home?
I’ll never tell – you should read the book and find out!

The Cat in the Hat is Worth Two Visits at Least!

It is great to create a children’s book that kids love and parents do too.

But for these books to be popular with kids for almost 60 years is amazing!

The Cat and the Hat and the Cat and the Hat by Dr. Seuss are definitely worth visiting.
