When Sally and her brother are left bored inside on a rainy day, the Cat in the Hat appears to cheer them up. The cat, however, only makes the house a disaster with the help of thing 1 and thing 2, and they ruin the mom’s dress. Minutes before the mom gets home, the cat is able to come in with a machine to clean his entire mess. After that, the cat disappears, leaving Sally and her brother just as bored as they started. This book is such a fun read; kids love it!! The cat and his companions can have anyone laughing.
This book is a good read during Dr. Seuss week in the classroom. I can also be used to compare and contrast with The Cat in the Hat Comes Back.
