The Cat in the Hat
The Cat in the Hat is a classic children’s book by Dr. Seuss about a brother and sister who are stuck inside on a rainy day when the Cat in the Hat comes to play. This is a wonderful beginner’s book for children learning to read.
Dr. Seuss Hat
A Dr. Seuss Hat is a fun dress up idea for Dr. Seuss’ birthday or a Read Across America event. This silly red and white striped hat like the one the Cat in the Hat wears is just the thing to have for reading Dr. Seuss books to kids.
