Ice Is Nice!

One of the coolest titles in The Cat in the Hat Learning Library® takes readers to the opposite ends of the Earth: the North and South Poles. Travel along with the Cat in the Hat and meet reindeer, polar bears, and penguins, as he explains the differences between these two icy places. The engaging story by author Bonnie Worth uses Seuss-inspired, easy-to-read rhyme, while the fun pictures by Aristides Ruiz and Joe Mathieu help readers visualize facts about the poles, including extreme weather, incredible animals, and even the concept of climate change.

Tie-in Activity: Ice Magic
Can you pick up an ice cube floating in a glass of cold water using just a piece of string? You can! Let one end of the string rest on the ice cube. Sprinkle some salt on top of the ice cube and string. Wait a minute or two; the string will stick to the cube as the ice refreezes. Use the string to lift up the ice cube. Ta-da!
