There's a real push to encourage young people to read newspapers and other kinds of nonfiction. The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library is a great way to introduce this kind of reading, because the books feature fictional characters (the cast from The Cat in the Hat) who are already familiar to kids.
Leaping lizards—the Cat and Co. explore the world of reptiles!
The Cat in the Hat travels the globe—in his trusty crocodile car—to explore the world of reptiles: lizards, snakes, turtles, and crocodilians. Along the way, young readers learn the characteristics shared by most reptiles; basic information about each group; quirky, fun facts about individual species; and much, much more. Cool creatures featured include komodo dragons, chameleons, geckos, cobras, leatherback turtles, frilled lizards—a virtual Who’s Who of the World’s Most Remarkable Reptiles. Young readers will slither in delight!
