The Cat In The Hat is a wonderful story about two siblings who are home alone on a rainy day with nothing to do. The Cat in the Hat arrives at their home and shows the children how to have fun, mostly by making a complete mess of their home in the process! Not to worry, the Cat cleans it all up before their mother returns home! This book is appropriate for kindergarten. It is full of rhymes, and encourages children to read. This book is a must for Dr. Seuss week at school. Coloring a hat to wear with an AB pattern is fun way to incorporate math, while making a fun hat to wear like the Cat's. Including a journal prompt after reading the story would be a great way for children to practice writing while stirring up their imagination. "If the Cat in the Hat came to your house, how would you get him to leave?"
