One of the world's most beloved cats—the Cat in the Hat—is taking readers on an adventure to Africa to meet some big cats and many other animals including elephants, zebras, and giraffes. With Thing One and Thing Two helping out, the Cat goes on a safari that reveals fun facts about all kinds of creatures. Did you know that giraffes have black tongues and lion cubs are born with spots? Now you do, and there's more in store as author Bonnie Worth relays these facts in the rhythmic, easy-to-read Seussian style, while illustrators Aristides Ruiz and Joe Mathieu deliver detailed illustrations of the animals. Part of the The Cat in the Hat Learning Library®, this storybook will leave readers roaring for more!
Tie-in Activity: Act Like Animals
Try an African animal twist on a game of charades. Place the names (or pictures) of various animals in a bag. Let a player select one and act like that animal (you can include making the animal sound for younger players.) Other players try to guess the animal!
