Didn't quite get what all the fuss was about. Ok for phonetic read I guess ( )

Perhaps Seuss' most iconic; the perfect blend of his absurdism and narrative. ( )

This book is an American classic written by the legendary Dr. Seuss. This book follows the adventure a young boy has when a cat with a large hat and his pals wreck havoc! This book uses clever rhymes to construct easy to follow sentences and, with a colorful backdrop, is great for pre-school and kindergarten children to learn how to read. ( )

The Cat in the Hat descends upon two children one rainy day in this classic early reader from Dr. Seuss, setting off a madcap, messy adventure in their home. Despite the narrator and his sister Sally not being particularly keen to host this feline guest, the Cat barges in, determined to share his games with them. The children's fish offers a continual string of objections, but the Cat carries on, even going so far as to set loose his twin terrors - Thing One and Thing Two - who destroy the house. When the Cat finally leaves, and the children's mother is spotted approaching, it looks like there will be trouble, but that irrepressible feline has one last trick up his sleeve...

Originally published in 1957, The Cat in the Hat was Dr. Seuss's thirteenth children's book, and the first of his early readers. It works just as well as a read-aloud picture-book for younger children, but is intended for use with beginning readers, and is part of Random House's I Can Read It All By Myself Beginner Books collection, which includes all of the Dr. Seuss and Dr. Seuss-labeled early readers, amongst other titles. This is a book I recall reading many times as a girl, and its text and illustrations are immediately familiar, whenever I pick it up. This particular reread was prompted by my recently begun retrospective of Dr. Seuss's work, in which I will be reading and reviewing forty-four of his classic picture-books, in chronological publication order. This is a project I undertook as an act of personal protest against the suppression of six of the author/artist's titles - And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, McElligot's Pool, If I Ran the Zoo, Scrambled Eggs Super!, On Beyond Zebra! and The Cat's Quizzer - by Dr. Seuss Enterprises, due to the outdated and potentially offensive elements that they contain. See my review of And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, to be found HERE, for a fuller exploration of my thoughts on that matter.

Although The Cat in the Hat is not currently one of the books being suppressed through the copyright holder's recent decision to cease publication, readers should note that it may only be a matter of time until it has joined that unfortunate list. Sadly, the censorious impulse - including, and perhaps especially, the self-censorious impulse, of which this recent decision is an example - only gains strength as it is fed, and this particular book has already run afoul of those same critics whose work seems to have informed Dr. Seuss Enterprises' recent action against the artistic and literary legacy that they are meant to be representing. Apparently the argument has been put forward, in such academic titles as Philip Nel's Was the Cat in the Hat Black?: The Hidden Racism of Children's Literature, and the Need for Diverse Books, that the titular Cat in this story is a descendant of the minstrel shows and blackface of earlier generations, and that his actions are a coded reflection of white fears about the disruptive nature of black power. I cannot comment upon Nel's argument, having not yet read the book - something I hope to do in the future - but some of the reviews of it that I have seen, reviews that mention all of the "decoding" done by the critic, in order to arrive at his conclusion, do make me wonder whether the text actually supports that conclusion, or whether the entire argument rests upon the imposition of the critic's own preexisting assumptions upon the text. I hope, at some point, to have an answer to that question, as well as a better understanding of the role of critics like Nel in this recent decision from Dr. Seuss Enterprises. Whatever the final argument put forward in his book, it is not my intention to assert that he can be held directly accountable for this act of censoriousness, simply by virtue of his having made a critique of Dr. Seuss' work. There is a difference, after all, between critique - even harsh critique - and calling for censorship. Of course, if Nel's book does indeed make an argument for suppressing books such as The Cat in the Hat, or if Nel was one of the panel of "experts" Dr. Seuss Enterprises is said to have consulted, then that is a different matter, and some of the blame for this recent episode of cultural vandalism can indeed be laid at his feet.

However that may be, in light of the criticisms leveled against this book, I gave careful attention to the depiction of the Cat during my current reread, curious to see if I would spy some of the problematic aspects, whatever they might be. I cannot deny that there is an element of unease in this story, and that the Cat's role is indeed disruptive. This is something that I recall being conscious of, even as a child reader. Of course, my sense then was more that the Cat was being "naughty," and that the story represented the mischief children get up to, absent parental authority. After all, the narrator and his sister are home alone, very bored, with nowhere to go. Rereading as an adult, having only recently read or reread all of Dr. Seuss' prior children's books, I came to a similar but somewhat expanded conclusion. Namely, that this is a story which offers an interesting and slightly different take on the power of imaginative play, depicted in previous books as wondrous and somehow transformative, even if only temporarily. Here however, we see the potentially destructive, perhaps even dangerous potential of imagination, and the chaos attendant upon following one's impulses. It clearly isn't an accident that the Cat in the Hat arrives when the children's mother is out. He appears to represent a force that is oppositional to familial authority, whose spokesperson in the the story would be the lecturing fish, always reminding the children of what their mother might say or think. It's interesting to note that the chaos and destruction ushered in by the Cat is temporary, and that all is set to rights again, at the close of the book. This suggests nothing so much as the kind of experiments in independence that young people conduct, inching out a bit from the family circle, and then retreating again to its safety. I couldn't say whether this was intentional upon Dr. Seuss's part, but the fact that the book is deliberately aimed at a slightly older child than some of the earlier picture-books, a slightly older child just getting going with their own independent reading, it's tempting to think that the creator is offering them a story about wholly independent play.

Whatever interpretation the reader lands upon, when it comes to the meaning of the story and its creator's intentions, the experience of generations of children confirm that this is an immensely entertaining book. I can only hope that it will not be disappeared by our current climate of censoriousness, and that coming generations will also be able to enjoy its odd, disquieting charm. ( )

This story is about a brother and sister who became bored on a rainy day. Next thing they knew a cat in the hat shows up at their house and takes them on an adventure in their own house. I would use this book to inspire kids to step out of their box. This book is all about adventure and usage of your imagination. This book would connect with different students or different situations that students may be encountering like boredom and lack of imagination. Situations like rainy days or just boredom strikes; kids can remember this book and come up with fun things to do instead of allowing a dreary day affect their fun. That allows a transitional experience and I'm sure they will enjoy it.

This is classic book to be used in a lesson about rhyming. This is also a book to use in celebrating Dr. Seus Day!
