Our 3 year old (boy) is fascinated by this book - I think it is the way simple words are combined using rhythm and rhyme that makes it so appealing. And of course the surreal madness of it all!Read moreLess
"All the Dr Seuss books are wonderful. My 3 year…"
All the Dr Seuss books are wonderful. My 3 year old daughter didn't like them when she was younger, but now she is older she just can't get enough of them. She loves the drawings (so do I!) and thinks the humorous text is hilarious. We've read them so much that she knows some of them off by heart and likes to read them herself. An all time classic which every child should read!Read moreLess

The children are quite fond of it too...Read moreLess

"A timeless book, loved by children of all generations. It is silly with lots of energy and can't fail to make reading fun." "Good for word recognition and for children learning about language and rhyme. Also good for kids starting to learn to read". "There's a great rhythm to the words and my toddler loves to recite it as we read". "My children particularly love it when the cat comes in with his amazing car to clear up the mess."Read moreLess
"8/10 Although, on the surface , The Cat in…"
8/10 Although, on the surface , The Cat in the Hat books come across as nonsense every child I know seems to love them. I found it particularly good when DD was learning to read because of the rhyming words. She also seemed to like the "made up" words -it kept things light-hearted and fun without her realising she was learning !Read moreLess
"Great fun book - wacky and funny.…"
Great fun book - wacky and funny.Read moreLess
