“Oh, Dr. Seuss, you always astound us with your ability to tell a whole story with all these easy words! Now, as a kid, I thought the Cat himself was a little creepy and kind of a jerk. After all, he shows up on a rainy day and hopes to cheer up and entertain a couple of kids who have been left alone, and though the kids do seem to enjoy him, they're also left worrying about the disasters he's leaving in his wake (especially when Thing 1 and Thing 2 arrive). The pet fish is the voice of reason but is portrayed as kind of a stuffy jerk, and honestly I actually sympathized with him most, because it's hard to be the person who sees the environment going to pieces and being powerless to set it right. The illustrations were the usual fun and colorful and whimsical style, though, and I really liked the Things.”swankivy wrote this review 9 days ago. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful?

“A good book for beginners, but the content make me wonder whether it was the cat in the hat or the kids themselves !! :)
I liked the last line in particular, wherein the kid-reader is asked to make a decision. Now would the kid-reader say the truth or not is to be seen.”
“In the book “The Cat in the Hat” by Dr.Seuss. The text is in short paragraphs with lots of dialog. The text was sufficient because the long lists in the book made it a short paragraph. This book has many literary tools, one is personification an example in this book is when the fish started to talk. Another literary tool is repetition. An example is when the fish kept saying, “make that Cat in the Hat go away, he should not be here when your mother is not.” One last literary tool is.
On the cover of the book there is the Cat in the Hat. This relates to the book because the Cat in the Hat is making the house a mess and he solves the problem in the book. The medium in this book is drawings. In my opinion the most effective illustration is on page 20 when the Cat in the Hat drops all the stuff he was holding and makes the house a mess. I think this because the main problem in the story is that the Cat is careless and makes the house a mess.
The main character is the Cat in the Hat in this book. A character trait from the text for the Cat in the Hat is selfish. A character trait that showed from the illustrations for the Cat in the Hat is messy. A character trait that a little kid may use is messy and funny. The main problem that the Cat in the Hat faces is that the kid’s mom is coming home and there is a big mess in the house. This relates to kids because kids need to clean their room before their parents see their room.
This book was very funny. You never know what the Cat is going to do next. His surprises never end. He had the children very nervous about the mess he was making. It was great how he fixed everything before Mom got home. I would recommend this book to kids between the ages of 4 and 6.

“In Dr. Seuss’s classic story, two kids are left at home on a rainy day, bored and wishing for something to do. Then along comes the cat in the hat, with his tricks and games to entertain them, despite the protest of the children’s fish who warns them that their mother would not approve. When the mother returns and the cat manages to get the house clean, readers are left with the question of “What would you do if your mother asked you?” This would obviously start a discussion in class about what the students would tell their mother and about honesty and responsibility.”EKesel wrote this review Wednesday, May 8, 2013.
