Fun Educational Books for Kids: Cat in the Hat Learning Library
There are a lot of great children’s books out there and I’m sure each of you have your favorites. Some that come to mind are Guess How Much I Love You, Goodnight Moon, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, Where the Wild Things Are, Is Your Mama a Llama? Read Along Library, and the list goes on. However, if you happen to be a Dr. Suess fan you’re in luck because Dr. Suess has added a fairly new collection to their classic books. If you have not yet seen or heard of the Dr. Suess Cat in the Hat Learning Library books you absolutely HAVE to check them out!
This series of books have quickly become my favorite and my kids love them too. The publishers age level is 4-8 but with the illustrations and rhyming stories, they can even hold a 2 or 3 year olds’ attention. Each book teaches some aspect of nature or the world. The series includes books about bugs, plants, animals, weather, nature, space, the human body, and much more. The factual information is presented in such a way that it is fun to read AND educational - so much so that my kids don’t even realize they are learning. Okay I’ll admit it…I learn a lot from them too! My son Alex hates bugs, but the book about insects is one of his favorites.
I found many of the titles from this series at TJ Maxx, Marshalls and Ross for $5.99. However, Amazon.com has ALL of them and even better - they are eligible for Amazon’s 4 for 3 promotion which basically means if you buy 3, you get one free. Add the fact that you aren’t charged tax and there is free shipping on orders over $25.00 and it’s a pretty good deal. Trust me…these books are well worth the investment. You AND your kids will love them!
