Now for the first time ever, the Cat in the Hat appears in a silly, Seussian flap book, which offers loads of learning and lots of laughs and is packed with over 50 seek-and-find flaps that help teach basic concepts such as colors, numbers, letters, shapes, and opposites!

Inspired by five all-time best-selling Beginner Books®, this Seussian tour de flap includes:

* Counting with the Cat in the Hat himself, from 1 fish to 20 Zeds (with hair on their heads!)

* Animal sounds, courtesy of Mr. Brown (Yes, he can moo! Lift the flap and you'll moo, too!)

* Rhyming games and wordplay inspired by There's a Wocket in My Pocket! and One Fish  Two Fish  Red Fish  Blue Fish

* And as if all this weren't enough -- Dr. Seuss's ABC in 26 flaps!

Another hand-me-down from the cousins. Hard to believe it lasted through two kids, none of ours will be fit to pass on. The boys love this busy book, but Mom and Dad think it's too long for bedtime. Read full review
