An introduction to one of the most awe-inspiring spectacles on Earth--with the Cat in the Hat as your guide!
With a little help from Thing One and Thing Two, the Cat in the Hat travels the Earth--and beyond--to introduce beginning readers to the science and history of volcanoes. From how they are formed to how they errupt, kids will learn why we wouldn't have rain, sleet, or snow without them; the difference between lava and magma; how most volcanoes are under water; and much, much more! Also included is a look at specific volcanoes from around the world (and Mars) including Mt. Vesuvius, Mt. Etna, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Pinatubo, Mt. Krakatoa, Mt. Erebus, Castle Rock, Mauna Loa, and Olympus Mons. Perfect for nurturing a love of science and reading in a young child, this is a great choice for fans of the hit PBS show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!
The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library is a nonfiction, unjacketed hardcover series that introduces beginning readers ages 5-8 to important basic concepts. Featuring beloved characters from Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat, the Learning Library titles explore a range of topics about the world we live in and include an index, glossary, and suggestions for further reading.
