Editorial Reviews

Review

"Contains one of Dr. Seuss's solid-gold morals, the joy of letting one's imagination rip."--"The New York Times." "From the Hardcover edition." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

With the help of the staff and equipment at a Seussian spa, the Cat in the Hat explains the basics of healthy living, from eating right and getting enough exercise and sleep, to having a positive body image, to the distance and speed of a typical sneeze!

This book was a fun, educational, rhyming book.
Hailey Harper
Silly non-words aside, this book does a great job teaching nutrition, hygiene, and other healthy habits to the younger set (probably 2nd grade and under).
J. Shea
I am a school nurse and read this to all the elementary students for Dr Seuss's birthday.

This is one of the better books in The Cat in the Hat Learning Library series. The rhymes are reminiscent of the true Seussian style as are the characters in the book.

The topics this book covers are: exercise, germs, washing, food pyramid, drinking water, brushing your teeth, wearing helmets and getting enough sleep.

Format: Hardcover
I like this book because it taught me all different things when i was littler. Like how to brush my teeth, floss, wash my hands, wash my hair, get exercise,how to deal with a cold, the right food to eat, and how its important at the end of the day to get your rest. This book taught me so much and im thankful for that.

Format: Hardcover
My kids (boys 8 and 5) still ask to hear this book at bedtime at least once every couple of weeks, so obviously the intended audience enjoys this. My own objections -- having read the thing aloud to said kids at least 100 times -- are largely aesthetic. The rhymes in this book are either strained

It can travel five feet

and blasts out with great power

at speeds over one hundred

miles an hour!

or facile (the Garoo in Fadoo tell me true, they do - just like you!) to a degree that bugs me as a Seuss fan.

To be fair, this problem turns up throughout the Learning Library series, not just in the volumes written by Tish Rabe. When you have to cover every health issue under the sun short of cancer and addiction (or every dinosaur or aspect of plant reproduction), it's probably pretty rough to hold a rhyme scheme and use words that kids can understand. Rabe does a respectable enough job at it that -- well, guess what the little Dinos want to hear again tonight?

Format: Hardcover
The book is great and has wonderful healthy positive messages. My kids love it and ask to read it over and over. The only dissapointment is that it still has one page with the old food guide pyramid.

This book was a fun, educational, rhyming book. I read it to a group of children ages 4-5 and they all really enjoyed it. However, it does have a page about the food pyramid, which is no longer the standard for teaching nutrition. Other than that, it was great!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By J. Shea on January 29, 2013
Format: Hardcover
In true Dr Seuss fashion (although this one isn't actually written by the good doctor), rhymes, giggles and fabulous illustrations abound in this book. Silly non-words aside, this book does a great job teaching nutrition, hygiene, and other healthy habits to the younger set (probably 2nd grade and under). My one complaint ~ this book, published in 2001 (?), uses the OLD "Food Pyramid"...you know, the one that suggests you eat up to 11 servings of grains in a day? Yeah, that one. The food pyramid has since evolved (several times over) and is now MyPlate, which encourages half your plate be fruits and vegetables, something the old pyramid neglected. But, it's easy enough to slip that info in while you're reading if you care to.

This book basically outlines the things you can do that are good for you, although I would have liked to see more stress on physical activity.
