It's a Birthday Cat-ebration with The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!
Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss! We're celebrating the beloved children's author with a week of new Cat in the Hat adventures. "Dr. Seuss' Birthday Cat-ebration" begins on Monday, March 3, with the debut of a one-hour The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! special. New half-hour episodes also premiere on Tuesday, March 4, and Wednesday, March 5. Follow the Cat, Nick, and Sally as they explore a variety of animal attributes: from the benefits of crickets' chirps and birds' feathers, to the mimic octopus' remarkable ability to imitate other sea creatures. Viewers will also learn how glass is made, how multi-legged creatures walk, and how cotton is spun into fabric.
As part of the "Cat-ebration," PBS KIDS has launched a new, mobile-friendly The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! game: "Marbleous Marvel Coaster." Kids can create their own Seussian rollercoasters using open-ended play and engineering skills. The game is available at pbskids.org/catinthehat.
