“The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!” is the PBSKids show based on Random House’s best selling Beginner Book collection, “The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library.” The show fuses STEM skills – science, technology, engineering and math – with new, whimsical Seussian adventures. The kids, with the Cat as their guide, learn by observing, collecting and managing clues, making connections, constructing and evaluating theories, and having discussions – all in a preschool-appropriate manner.
Cat In the Hat
On March 2, join PBS KIDS to celebrate the 108th birthday of Dr. Seuss with a two-hour Cat-In-The-Hat-A-Thon of The Cat In the Hat Knows A Lot About That! (check local listings). The marathon will feature two new episodes “Seasons – Spring and Summer/Fall and Winter,” and “When I Grow Up/Doing It Differently,” plus encore presentations of “Hooray for Hair/Ice Is Nice” and “Chasing Rainbows/Follow the Prints.”
