The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!™
The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!™ is designed to spark a love of learning and an interest in science in preschool-aged children. Based on Random House's best-selling Beginner Book collection "The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library™," the TV series and online resources are designed to cultivate positive views about science and scientists among the next generation — the children who will become tomorrow's citizens and innovators — and help teachers and families build communities of science explorers.
In each program, the Cat in the Hat and his friends Sally and Nick go on a science adventure, such as flying with birds to discover how and why they migrate or taking a snowcat to the Arctic to explore freezing and melting. Guided by the Cat, the children figure things out by engaging in science inquiry. Each half-hour episode consists of two 11-minute animated adventures, along with corresponding short animated clips. Each adventure revolves around a specific science concept such as bird migration or animal camouflage.
