My Review: I guess I may have been expecting a little too much from this book. I understand that it is a beginning reader book, but I was hoping

Beautiful illustrations.Takes steps of cooking,
The book features simply rhyming words with related pictures
This is a great book for children who are learning to read and has big type and easy words.

L. E. Prepare an easy recipe, giving the opportunity to the children follow step by step instructions cleaning and organizing and finally eat.

Genre: Rhymes, cook

In this step into reading level 1 book there are lot of rhyming words. The words in this book are in the kindergarten sight word list and the sentences are short and easy to read. would be a good book for kindergartners and lower first graders.

Out of all of the Cat in the Hat book, this was my least favorite. I thought it was silly and didn't make sense. It felt like the author was trying to hard to make a story out of words that rhyme.

I read this book with my 6 year old Nephew. This was a level 1 book and I felt that it had a few words a little too advanced for level 1. It was cute though.

My aged 2.5 child LOVES this book and "reads" it over and over. We got it before he even had a clue who the "Cat in the Hat" was but he was mesmerized by the cooking and crazy antics. Now that he sees this character elsewhere he appreciates that side of the book, as well. The book features simply rhyming words with related pictures. The Cat in the Hat arrives to help our young friends bake a treat: some cupcakes of questionable origins! As you might expect they make quite a mess but the Cat has ...more

This is a great book for younger children. It can be read with enthusiasm and the children could really get into them. After I read it to a kindergartener I asked her if she had cooked anything before and it got a whole conversation started.

This is one of the better easy and early readers we've found. It is very easy, properly levelled at a 1, though enjoyable even for level 2 readers. The book itself is a very good quality, bright white paper and wonderful coloful illustrations with the details my little Aspie loves. He liked it very much and we've actually reread this one, which says alot for my son who doesn't willingly suffer rereads unless he truly like the book.

One of the best first reader books I've found so far. Beautiful illustrations just like Dr Seuss books and movie. My granddaughters loved being able to read something so familiar to them. The feeling of success with reading something that they had been seeing and hearing all their lives was very gratifying to this Grandma! They had fun creating more rhyming words also---which they learned to spell quickly too!

This was a Random House Step Into Reading Level 1
( Preschool - K) book, "big type and easy words'. It lives up to that claim. Kids love Cat in the Hat, the illustrations and the rhyme. This is an excellent book for beginning readers---and it even has a story line.

I don't think that I'd use this book to teach anything specific. However, this book is in my personal children's book library so that my future students have access to a book that they can read. It rhymes and can help them develop their language.

This is a great book for children who are learning to read. It's about cooking in the kitchen and it has lots and lots of rhyming words. There are many picture clues and has big type and easy words... great for Pre-k- 1st grade.

This is a level 1 book, I would put it at a merging into level 2. This story has an emphasis on the "oo" and the "ea" sounds.

The cat comes to the kids and wants to cook a treat...

This is the first book my son read cover to cover all by himself. He loves to read it to his sister now. The rhyming words and funny story keep them coming back over and over. Great read!
