Cat in the Hat Book must have been a very interesting story read out when we were at pre-school. The Cat brings in a story a cheerful, exotic and exuberant form of chaos to a household of two young children, brother and sister, one rainy day while their mother leaves them unattended. The Cat performs all sorts of wacky tricks—the Cat at one point balances a teacup, some milk, a cake, three books, the Fish, a rake, a toy boat, a toy man, a red fan, and his umbrella while he is on a ball to the chagrin of the fish—to amuse the children, with mixed results. Then, the Cat gets a box from outside. Inside the box are two creatures named Thing One and Thing Two, who begin to fly kites in the house. The Cat's antics are vainly opposed by the family pet, a sapient and articulate fish.

This is very animated story with funny characters that kids love. One should enjoy reading the children’s books because they are funny and entertaining. The crazy story lines captured one’s imagination.  I want to read the Cat in the Hat Book. I have watched a movie based on the Cat in the Hat book which was released on the big screen in 2003.

I had an opportunity of watching the movie; I have seen the story come to life right in front of me. Cat in the Hat books have been around for over 50 years and hopefully they will be still around for generations to come in order for children to enjoy them.

Maybe I should give myself a chance to read one of the books soon, who knows the book might bring out the child in me. I think every child needs to read the Cat in the Hat books. It’s a good book to start reading to children at a young age already. Since they've heard the book so many times already, it’ll be easier for them to start reading alone.  The words are easy to sound out and some of the most common words in the English language.
