About the Author

Certainly the most popular of all American writers and illustrators of picture books, Geisel made his pseudonym Dr. Seuss famous to several generations of children and their parents. Geisel developed a rhythmic form of poetry that relied on quick rhymes and wordplay reminiscent of Mother Goose rhymes. He combined this with exaggerated cartoonlike illustrations of fantasy characters to entice children into stories that contained important messages, often presented with a great deal of irony and satire.

Editorial Reviews

"There is a big gap between ''concept'' books written for preschoolers and nonfiction that requires fluent reading skills. The Cat in the Hat''s Learning Library books introduce beginning readers to important basic concepts about the natural world. They provide the critical foundations upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be build. In addition, The Cat in the Hat''s Learning Library shows young readers that books can be entertaining and educational at the same time. This is a wonderful series!"
