The Cat in the Hat goes on a hairy adventure in this leveled reader for independent readers all about--what else?--hair! It's Crazy Hair Day at Sally and Nick's school, and the kids can't pick a style to wear. Curly or straight? Long or short? It's too hard to choose--until the Cat in the Hat arrives with his Wig-o-lator--a machine that allows the kids to "try on" the hairstyles of a yak, a fur seal, and a porcupine, with comical (and educational) results!

Prompts throughout encourage toddlers to look for details and additional items to count.
Step into reading with the Cat in the Hat in this leveled reader about animal tails based on an episode of the hit PBS Kids television show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!

To help the kids choose, he whisks them off to the jungle to see--and try on--a variety of tails that serve different purposes: A monkey's tail that is strong for holding onto branches; a quetzal's tail that is long and colorful for attracting a mate; and a rattlesnake's tail that makes sound as a warning. Written for children who are ready to read independently, this tale about tails is a fun, funny book that introduces kids to basic comparitive anatomy!
When Sally and Nick's maple tree won't grow, the Cat in the Hat knows who to call: Dr. Twiggles, who suggests they inspect its roots. A trip underground in the Thinga-ma-jigger is undertaken, and sure enough, the maple tree needs water (which Things One and Two procure in ridiculous overabundance) and sun (which the Cat supplements with a Brighta-ma-lighter). But as for getting syrup from the young sapling? That will take some 40 years! Written specifically for children learning how to read with help, this Step into Reading book is based on an episode of the hit PBS Kids' TV show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! It is perfect for springtime reading, Earth and Arbor Day celebrations--and yes, even pancake breakfasts!
