Review of The Cat in the Hat Series on DVD

I learned to read by watching educational television. Now, I feel like it's equally important to be sure that the shows my kids watch are teaching them, too!  With all the love we feel for Dr. Seuss and the Cat in the Hat books, we were thrilled to find out that there is a new series featuring the lovable (and kind of crazy) cat and his way with prose.

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! Is a series of educational videos featuring Martin Short as the voice of the cat.  It teaches kids about the world around them in fun ways, using humor and song.  My kids didn't even realize that they had learned quite a bit about bees by watching the first DVD, Wings and Things.  Did it appeal to all my kids? You bet!  The 3-year-old was mesmorized, and my 12-year-old protested me asking her to take out the trash... "But MOM!  I'm watching this!"  She was hooked.

The DVD is available in stores everywhere, and contains lots of fun facts about birds, bees, and more!  Get it from Amazon for under $12
