The Cat in the Hat

 

"Look at me!

Look at me now!" said the cat.

"With a cup and a cake

On top of my hat!

I can hold up TWO books!

I can hold up the fish!

And a little toy ship!

And some milk on a dish!

And look!

I can hop up and down on the ball!

But that is not all!

Oh, no.

That is not all ...

 

Little did know that when I wrote the Hereville contest entry qualifier—posting your favorite children’s books— that I would receive a chorus of interesting responses. Honestly, I worried a bit. Did anyone read blogs over the winter holidays? My blog? Would anyone reply? A hearty thank you to those who took the time to share.  The contest isn’t over until January 22, so keep your replies coming in.  

The wonderful book list that’s growing on the Hereville post got me thinking about my favorite book, The Cat In the Hat, who turned fifty in 2007. Random House left up their The Cat in Hat birthday website, with all the bells and whistles, cool music, and coloring card page still in working order.  If you are a Doctor Suess fan, be sure to check out Suessville, the complete Dr. Suess site. Of course, nothing beats holding The Cat in Hat in your very own hands and reading it aloud.
