Overview Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat shows Sally and Dick how dinosaur fossils are excavated, assembled, and displayed in a museum.
Publishers Description The Cat in the Hat makes another surprise appearance at Dick and Sally's house--only this time he makes his entrance riding atop a brachiosaurus! Soon, he's off, along with Dick and Sally, millions of years back in time to see how fossils were created. Then it's on to a tour through the Cat's own Super Dino Museum--a fabulous place where the correct pronunciation of a dinosaur's name wins you a peek at the real living thing! Beginning readers will love exploring the prehistoric world of dinosaurs with the Cat in the Hat as their guide!
"There is a big gap between 'concept' books written for preschoolers and nonfiction that requires fluent reading skills. The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library books introduce beginning readers to important basic concepts about the natural world. They provide the critical foundations upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be build. In addition, The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library shows young readers that books can be entertaining and educational at the same time. This is a wonderful series!" -- Barbara Kiefer, Associate Professor, Reading and Literature Teachers College, Columbia University

Childrens books for learning Feb 22, 2008
This book is one of a number of books that have a Dr. Seuss rhyme to them but that teach some aspect of nature or the world. This one goes into Dynasaurs, others are on the human body, insects and other animals. Whereas the rhymes don't always work it does keep a childs attention and they can't help but learn something.
wonderful book Oct 1, 2007
My daughter loves it and I love to read it to her. One of our favorite Cat-in-the-hat books!
"Mr. Dinosaur" loves this book! Jul 2, 2002
My son who will soon be five years old, loves this book. We read it three times in a row when I first purchased it and we have read it many times since. It's clever and fun and informational, too. A great addition for the dinosaur book collector.
The best dino book for preschoolers Nov 30, 1999
I bought this book for my three year old and was delighted to find that it is a book that will also grow with my son. He loves the ryhmes and the illusrations. The book holds his attention while also teaching him.
Delightful book Aug 16, 1999
Let's put it this way, my 4 year old can now accurately pronounce the names of the dinosaurs and knows a fair amount about them. This book is wonderful. If your child is into dinosaurs this is the one book that you should get. It even gives a list of other dinosaur books that you can turn to for further reference. I'd have given it 6 stars or more.
