Get ready to dive in with the Cat in the Hat and meet some of the most awesome animals in the oceans: sharks! Along with his helpers, Thing One and Thing Two, the Cat highlights some of the many fascinating details about sharks, like the fact that these fish have no bones but tons of teeth! Inspired by the whimsical verse and artwork of Dr. Seuss, the text by Bonnie Worth makes the early-science concepts easy to understand, while the illustrations by Aristides Ruiz and Joe Mathieu give readers a clear picture of sharks, from the smallest (the dwarf lantern) to the largest (the whale shark). Readers will sink their teeth into this book, which is part of the The Cat in the Hat Learning Library®.
Tie-in Activity: Sink and Float
Sharks have many features that make it easier for them to live in the water, such as an oily liver. Fill one water balloon with water, and use a funnel to fill a second one with vegetable oil. Fill a sink with water and let your child see which balloon sinks and which floats.
