This "kids' book" is, in my opinion, a nightmare-quality horror story. Why, you ask? What's scary about a funny-looking cat? *shudder* Well, what's so scary about these cute things?(Well, there actually is nothing scary about that last one. That still doesn't make it any less of a nightmare.) Sometimes I have nightmares where everything goes wrong, but I am helpless to do anything about it. What's worse, the voice of reason is gone. Well, that pretty much sums up the plot of this book. As a horr [...]
I like that at the end of this book, when the mother comes home and the text reads:Should we tell her about it?Now, what SHOULD we do?WellWhat would YOU doIf your mother asked YOU?My daughter always looks up at me and says: I would tell you. But I don't believe her. I think it's quite possible that the Cat in the Hat has already been here, and she's just telling me what I want to hear.
Without a doubt one of the signature Seuss' booksTHE SCHRODINGER'S CAT IS OUT OF THE HATHe should not be here.He should not be about,He should not be here,When your mother is out,It was a tale hard to rate,d I imagine how shocked must be for many of you, when you notice my 3-stars' rate.Three stars?! For The Cat in the Hat?! The very tale that it’s an emblem about Dr. Seuss’ work?!Well, before calling the Zooks and Yooks to begin a war against me, let me explain my personal struggles with th [...]
Book ReviewEveryone's heard of SEUSS (Dr) (I hope). 4 stars to The Cat in the Hat, an adorable children's book full of little amusing pictures and rhymes.Kids love the absurdity. It's an opportunity for the reader to use different voices to dress up to be free and fun and just enjoy reading.Though it could be used as a way to teach kids about rhymes, as well as what's real and not real my recommendation with this one is to just HAVE FUN! Act out all the scenes. Make it a fun Saturday experience [...]
In honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday I post an annual review of one of his works. Normally they fart sunshine and rainbows, but today we're going to spend a minute with the book that makes me want to . . . . I know this is a classic and it's Seuss and no one is supposed to blaspheme when it comes to his good name, but come on. Two kids who are stupid enough to let a creepy effing CAT in their house only to nearly demolish the place obviously are not mature enough to be left home alone on a rainy day. [...]
I don't remember ever reading Dr. Suess (I'm sure I did, only it was SO long ago), so this just put me in such good spirits! I remember how giddy these made me feel, and the rhyming is just so whimsical, no books can compare to these. I'm collecting all of Dr. Suess's work and this was just such a classic, great place to start. I love the art and the story combined!
What else can be said of this all time children's classic except that it is as enjoyable to read as an adult? I have three boys, two grown now, and all three have listened to me read this to them and perhaps there was a while when I could have read it in my sleep (and may have!) If you ever go to Universal Studios theme park in Orlando, check out the Cat in the Hat ride. Good times!
Ding dong,I can be a magician.I can be anything,But an alsatian.The illustrations! The uproarious juggles of the feline and the mess that he leaves about.Though the high-tech gadgets bailed the cat out but Sally and her brother should heed to the wise Goldfish in further editions :DA total riot for children with working parents and who just manage to not bring the house down - with or without the cat : I am one such kid.
The most cynical book ever written describes the cycle of every generation: first you hate the machine, then you rage against the machine, then you embrace the machine, then you become the machine.Sally and her brother, who, like Dostoevsky's sick man and Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man, will remain unnamed, join with the force of revolution, embodied by the Cat in the Hat. Together they recruit agents of change and chaos - the furious Things One and Two - to dismantle the oppressive world built b [...]
All i've read this past week is children's books and I'm not even mad about it
What I like in this classic children's story is the illustrations and the rhyming which will be very entertaining to read for kids. I like the ending part where the children were thinking if they will tell their mother what happened while she was away. The lesson is very simple which is about honesty. But if we will see it in broader perspective, adults like teachers or parents who read this children's book to kids will also be reminded about it and to always practice it.

Loved this one and I passed my love on to my sons. Unfortunately as they got older they enjoyed the movie more.
****½This book has always given me the impression that Dr. Seuss is a master mischief maker. He has this smarmy Cat barge his way into these poor kid's house (when their mother isn’t home) and then he proceeds to make a colossal mess. It’s all very distressing. In fact, as a child, I don’t think I found this book amusing at all. It preyed on all my worst fears like being ‘home alone,’ having pushy strangers take control, and scary ‘clown-like’ accessories like monster hats. I much [...]
Well what would you do if your mother asked you? ME WHILE READING THISME AFTER READINGI swear I don't know why this made me laugh so freaking hard. I really don't. I mean the story was funny, the rhyming so fun, but it didn't warrant my hysterical outbursts. But I'm not surprised, I always find myself laughing inappropriately. For example;MY FRIEND SWEARS THE THINGS RYAN SAYS IN THESE GIFS ARE EITHER CUTE OR HOT. PHILLIPE FROM CRUEL INTENTIONS IS HOTMEOH STAHP.I'm seriously starting to think it' [...]
I really can't stand this book. It's one of those my son had me read over and over when he was little. Seriously, what kind of mother leaves her young children home alone? Who is this cat? Why is he such a troublemaker? Is it okay that they do all that rotten stuff just because it all gets cleaned up before mom gets home? What kind of trouble will this brother and sister be getting into in their teens. This is a very disturbing book.
“The Cat in the Hat” was one of Dr. Seuss’ most popular children’s books ever created. The book featured the stove pipe hat feline troublemaker who tries to show two bored kids how to have fun on a rainy day with disastrous results. The Cat in the Hat has forever remained to be one of the most popular figures in children’s literature ever!Dr. Seuss’ superb rhyming text is as creative as it is funny. He easily finds the perfect rhyming of each word while telling a story through his rh [...]
I would recommend The Cat in the Hat to anybody. Dr. Seuss wrote this book like poetry by having the lines rhyme with each other. The story of the book is don't trust strangers; in this case the cat with the hat. The cat brings a box to children at home while their mother is gone, and the cat ends up causing chaos with thing one an thing two. It can teach children a good lesson on how to be responsible when their parents are not around. The pictures in the book make it very enjoyable to read. I [...]
WrensReads Review:When your friend comes over with eight Dr. Seuss books, you read them.Everyone knows this one, it is probably his best work.Cat in the Hat. The Cat that comes over, ruins your house, gives your pet fish a heart attack and let's your kids do whatever they want because you aren't home. Lots of rhymes. Lots of funny. Lots of things that hop like a bunny I'm stopping. I am not a Seuss. I wish I was a Seuss. Then I could only talk in rhymes, which would be kind of fun. WrensReads | [...]
At first, with his big French accent, I couldn’t understand my kid asking for “le chat in da at” but I soon deduced it. This story about making a major mess and then cleaning it up before mom gets home is beyond a classic. And still a favorite for my son. I heard there was even a part 2…
Nunca he entendido porque este es el libro más popular de Dr. Seuss, si él tiene otros mucho mejores.Tampoco entiendo porque a los niños les gusta tanto.Es una historia muy entretenida y divertida. Que ayuda al vocabulario de los niños, por medio de la repetición de palabras y las rimas.Pero realmente no tiene un mensaje o moraleja. Inclusive el final me llega a molestar un poco, ya que cierra preguntándole a los niños si ellos le dirían la verdad a su mamá.Como si no decir la verdad fu [...]
This was tongue tying. Too much so! Indy and I haven't read many of these, although he did ask for it off his brother's shelf. I was stumbling over my words, probably to try and get through it quickly this cat was too long! Made me feel tired! He's still quite cool of course. Just not for us at this reading stage. We have about ten others though on the shelf, so hopefully we will embrace them a little more.
Ha, I know that adding this book is cheating. But I just read a very funny review by a friend, which reminded me how much the kids and I enjoyed the movie of this. Even more fun than Horton Hears a Who. The latter is the highest Dr Seuss on my list, though, for its philosophical point of view.Personally I found the movie-Grinch rather scary. So, folks, if any of you find The Cat in the Hat scary at all, make a wide berth around watching The Grinch. He is sure to give you nightmares.
‘Dr Seuss’ being the pen name under which Theodor Seuss Geisel wrote (taking his middle name and making full use of his Oxford University PhD in English literature) was the American born grandson of German immigrants to the US. Beginning his career in the late 1920’s as an illustrator and cartoonist, it wasn’t until nearly 30 years later that Seuss produced his classic series of children’s books that so many of us know and love.Never having the benefit of the books of Dr Seuss when I w [...]
A treasured memory from childhood, I bought many Dr. Seuss books to read to my children when they were small.I discovered a surprising thing; I thought that I was well read and a literate adult, reading these books out aloud requires great concentration and voice control (especially with a critical kid listening). However clever you may think you are, reading these books out aloud will improve your public speaking and help you to win friends and influence people :-)Go ahead, have some fun and im [...]
Прочла сыну книжку-классику для начинающих читать; оказалось: что она в стихах, что в ней лимитированное количество слов, что я до сих пор не знаю, как произносится фамилия автора.
3.5 stars. My favorite Dr. Seuss book as a kid. I was very happy to be able to read this out loud with my five year old daughter and have her love it as much as I did.
Another favorite in my household. :D
Really good book. Bit of a complicated plot, but the pictures help.
