The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!
Voiced by award-winning actor Martin Short, Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat guides friends Sally and Nick — with a little help from the Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2 — on fun-filled adventures where they make natural-science discoveries, from how bees make honey to why owls sleep during the day.
Filled with both adventure and silliness, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! appeals to preschoolers' natural curiosity, and engages them in the process of scientific exploration. Based on the acclaimed The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library book series, the program supports young children's science learning by introducing scientific inquiry skills, teaching core science concepts and vocabulary, and preparing preschoolers for kindergarten and first grade science curriculum — all in whimsical style.
