Travel all around the world with the Cat in the Hat and spend some time learning all about adorable wild baby animals. Take a peek in a kangaroo’s pouch to see a tiny joey, watch a father penguin feed its young chick in Antarctica, and see a baby elephant being taken care of by its babysitter—a young female elephant called an allomother. Engaging illustrations highlight the interesting facts that are presented in Seussian-style verse. And of course, there’s the story that has an ending that can only be provided by the Cat in the Hat! Readers are sure to agree that though each wild animal baby is unique, they all have one thing in common—they''re adorable!
Tie-in Activity: If you have a computer and a printer, print out separate pictures of adult and baby wild animals and cut them out for your child. Then, place the pictures into two separate piles and have your child try to match the baby with its mama (or papa), noting which baby animals look like the adults and which do not.
