Dr. Seuss' famous Cat, with a little help from Thing One an Thing Two, take Sally and Dick on a tour of a pond to introduce them to the wide variety of plants and animals found there.Catchy rhyming text provides easily-understood information: "A frog lays her eggs in/ a clump, and that way/ the eggs seem to big/ to be eaten as prey." Bright, detailed illustrations are a perfect accompaniment, and the Seuss-like expressions on many of the animals add to the charm: the satisfied-looking crappie (a kind of fish) with its mouth open wide as it eats algae, and the disconcerted bird of prey being warned off by a noisy bullfrog.Pronunciation is provided for complicated words, and there are a bibliography and an index. Like other titles in the “Cat in the Hat” Learning Library, this gem is valuable for independent reading, read-alouds, and class units on ecosystems. 48 pages.Recommended for ages 6-8. Recommended by Basya Karp, Librarian.
