I absolutely love The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. I enjoy all of the rhyming and the silly things that happen when the children’s mom was away for the day. When my older two were younger I read this book so often that we had the lines memorized. I remember even taking this book camping with us and reading it to them in our tent before our little ones went to bed. I love all the fun, all the fuss, all the mess, and all the things that happen while mother was away. Imagine if that happened to you? I too would have my eyes widened, my mouth opened, no sound would come out of my mouth, and my head spinning from all of the movement and the commotion that was happening.

Discussed with kids about the importance of telling the truth: The last sentence of the book is…” What would you do if your mother asked you?” We talked about that even though their mother would most likely never find out or believe them that the right thing to do is to tell the truth. It is always better to tell the truth than to lie. Their mother might laugh and think that they are simply saying a silly story but it is better for her to laugh then for you to feel guilty that you have told a lie.
