Having read this 25 times this autumn I am including it in my reading log despite it not filling my 100 page requirement (though it does, the 61 is complete fiction)

Dr Seuss is one of the funniest and most original children's book authors I have encountered, and I have encountered a lot! The Cat in the Hat is probably his most popular, it is a classic, but my favourites would be Green Eggs and Ham, and Oh, the places you'll go!, as the colourful illustrations and clever rhymes enthralled both my parents reading it to my young self, and myself. I still reread Dr Seuss books sometimes, as they are crazy and light-hearted, I would recommend them.

Like Mr. Brown, I think this Dr. Seuss book would also be great for building skills in phonics. It reminds me of activities we have talked about in class where children can explore how adding a new letter to "at" can change the sound and make a new word.

This is a classic book for kids all ages. I use this with my Kindergartners, but you could easily apply it to lessons with older students as well. It is about 2 siblings who stay home by themselves, only to be joined by a magical cat who wreaks havoc on their house. The cat destroys just about everything, setting the kids up to get in trouble with their mom, only to get everything quickly and magically cleaned up before she gets home. It is a fun fantasy tale about magic, powers, talking animals ...more
This book is wonderful for kids that love to rhyme. This book is about two kids having to stay inside because it was raining outside. They were so bored and had nothing to do. Then all of a sudden, a cat in a hat showed up at their door. The kids got into so much mischief, but they realized their mother would not be happy with how her house looked if she came back home. The kids told the cat to help them clean up the house and fix their messes. This book helps children realize that having fun is ...more
My son loved it...we own most of the books, so we were following along. My son's review "I liked it very good".
Best.Thing.Ever! Am listening to this in my car and feeling like a 4 year old all over again.
Maria Armenta
The Cat in the Hat was one of my favorite Dr Seuss books as a child, along with Green Eggs and Ham, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, Fox in Sox, The Lorax and Where is My Mother?

The storyline embodies naughtiness and excitement beyond any child’s imagination, not to mention an adventuresome child.

The illustrations are something incomparable – both in execution and design. The skilful nonsense rhyme and its delicious rhythm make it a delight to both read and read aloud. The invention, the

The Cat in the Hat is a classic. Dr. Seuss is probably everyone child's favorite author without them knowing it. The book is witty, it rhymes, the illustrations are colorful, and it is not that long. Any Dr. Seuss book is a great book for anyone. Every child should read these books. They are simple to read and it is easy to follow along, since it rhymes. Rhyming helps children learn how to read better in my opinion. I personally love Dr. Seuss books and all of them are recommended, but i think t ...more

This is a collection of books by Dr. Seuss narrated by Kelsey Grammer, Dustin Hoffman, Walter Matthau, John Cleese, Ted Danson, John Lithgow, Mercedes McCambridge, and Billy Crystal. It also comes with a short excerpt of Green Eggs and Ham by Jim Dale, narrator of the U.S. audiobooks of Harry Potter. They were all excellent narrators, who employed different voices for the various characters. There were background music and sound effects that sounded appropriate to the moment and made it m

This book is a poem and many kids find it humorous. The illustrations are amusing and are part of the story line, they help the story. Most love this book because of the adventures that the Cat brings to the brother and sister. He destroys the house, but he brings the siblings together. It is a fun way to introduce poems and rhythm.

I read this book when I was four years old. This book was a story but it was short so it was a short story. This book was about when the cat in a hat came to two children and help them have fun. I rated this book 5 stars because it was a very exciting book and I thought it was very entertaining when I was 4 years old.
Marisa Bennett
Of course we read all the Dr. Seuss books when I was a kid. They got so worn out from various children in our family reading them. I have a boxed set of Dr. Seuss's Beginner Book Classics. I so wish I could have kept The 500 Hats of Bartholomew...(Is that the name?)
Selene Vasquez
I LOVE dr Seuss! I always enjoy his books and how fun they are! I like that as your reading this book you can't help but imagine it in your head! I mean a cat gong into your home and encouraging you to make a mess in your home! Love the creativity.
All classic children's stories. I memorized "the cat in the hat comes back" by the time I was three. A lot of people thought I was a bright reader, but really it was just engraved in my mind.
Jaimee Mcallister
Something I believe should be in every child's collection of books. Dr Seuss will light your imagine with creative drawings, creatures and stories.
Maria Bulfamante
I love dr. Seuss. The rhyming and everything just wants to make me read them all. This was is my favorite because for me this was the first book I read from him and even the movie is great to.
Kelsey Grammer narrates this book and it's fabulous! When I read this book out loud to A it just seems like it takes forever to get through but Grammer reads it with enthusiasm and it rolls right off the tongue and A isn't even ready to turn the page yet. (During my readings she's turning the page before I'm halfway through). There is a part in the story that makes me laugh everytime during this recording which is fabulous to find a book for both my 2yr old and me to listen to over and over and ...more

Picture Book 12: This book is my all time favorite dr.seuss books. I love this book because it is a classic and the most well known book that dr. seuss has made. It was my first dr.seuss book I ever read when I was little and this is the book that got me hooked on all of his books! I would recommend this book to anyone who hasn't read it, which cannot be that many people because it is such a classic. I hope children today appreciate all this book has to offer and I hope it gets children into dr. ...more

Classic. I laughed. I cried. Maybe I even farted.

Who knows—I was only six when I first read this book.

Recommends it for: everyone.
This was a book that always made me want to reach through the pages and literally strangle the Cat in the Hat. Dr. Seuss gave us a great little story about all the trouble two children with nothing to do can get into. "Idle hands are the devil's tool," is truer than many people might think.

This book is a must have in every family library. It's fun and teaches a great lesson.

Purchase The Cat in the Hat.
Great compilation of some childhood favorites and some that I didn't know.

My favorite author as a little kid.
This audiobook had 12 classic Dr. Seuss tales including my absolute favorite tale, "The Lorax". This was a great audiobook because, of course, the stories stand the test of time. But it was also great because of the quality of narrators overall. The stories were read by the likes of Ted Danson, Kelsey Grammar, Dustin Hoffman and John Lithgow. You could tell by the narration that the narrators were truly enjoying the stories and were reading as if they were sharing this beloved story with their o ...more
