From School Library Journal
Kindergarten-Grade 3 Two titles that feature that favorite old cat, along with Thing One, Thing Two, and Sally and Dick. Both are told in rhythmic couplets. Di-no-saur introduces fossils using a museum as the setting. "With a club for a tail/and a back full of spikes,/this dino was strong /like an army tank. Yikes!" The dinosaurs' names are given, as well as their physical traits. Fish uses a deep-sea sub to take readers through five undersea zones, illustrating the types of fish that would be found at each depth. Even after close examination, the pictures cannot be easily distinguished from those drawn by Dr. Seuss. A good choice for kids who still like their nonfiction told in story form and laced with humor. Sharon R. Pearce, Geronimo Public School, OK

"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!"

Truth be told, we have other cat in the hat books (passed down to us) which she doesn't prefer. Maybe she is too young to really get the rhyming? But she adores this one. The love of the subject matter makes all the difference. The authors were very clever and EDUCATIONAL! I highly recommend this for any of your chicken nuggets that like dino's. ;-)
I can honestly say that reading this book as a bed time story didn't bring me the joy that reading true blue Dr. Seuss does. Some of the words are a little more advanced than what I would expect to see from something in a learning library and some of the dinosaurs chosen were difficult even for me to pronounce. Granted, that made it a little fun as I learned about a couple dinosaurs that I didn't know about at the same time as my little one.
The book was well illustrated. Overall, not a terrible purchase.
I bought this book because of the rhyming and the colorful pictures and this book has become his FAVORITE book of all which I think is high praise coming from a 5 year old who has lots of books but this one really is a hit with him.
This book has become such a favorite that his mother is now ordering more books like this not only because they are so entertaining, but because the kids are learning facts at the same time which to me is a huge plus.
I highly recommend this book for any 5 year old interested in this subject!!
