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

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!
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 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!
Lyndsey Miller
Easy read. Takes steps of cooking, breaks them down to much simpler form kids can understand. Teaches rhyming and with mostly all real words!
Never fail with a Dr. Seuss right:) Great book for teaching early/emergent readers rhyming. Big easy words with lots of picture clues.
Gina Malewicz
My son 1st book he read to himself. He picks this one up all on his own and starts reading. That says alot!
Loved to read this book! It was super duper harder than the other books I've read. But I did it!

you can make cupcakes out of anything! ANYTHING! the cat comes to help the kids bake cupcakes.
Cute but not Seuss. Cute in places, flat in others.
Great for Dr. Seuss fans and early readers.
