My boys and I love to have fun with Cat in the Hat. This Dr. Seuss book is one of our favorites!
I love to find new ways to extend the learning fun with Dr. Seuss and his characters. Here are a few of the activities, games, crafts, and more that we have enjoyed having fun with Cat in the Hat.
Easily Extend the Fun with This Popular Dr. Seuss Book
The Cat in the Hat is one of the most popular Dr. Seuss books. It’s been one of the resources that I’ve used to help my boys learn how to read.
New and young readers can benefit from learning the different words (and even making a word list) based on this kids’ book.
The great adventures of Sally and her brother (whose name we learn is Conrad in the movie) at the hands of the main character (The Cat in the Hat) are engaging. And, of course, the voice of reason from the family’s pet fish makes the tricks and antics even more amusing.
If you’re enjoying this favorite children’s tale, I’ve gathered these ideas and different things (pun intended!) to help you boost your learning fun.
