The Book: The Cat in the Hat
Seuss books are full of rhyme and silliness and The Cat in the Hat is a classic. Two young children sit at the window wondering what to do since the rain is falling outside. Then, the Cat in the Hat arrives and the day gets a little more exciting especially when Thing 1 and Thing 2 are unboxed!
