Book Description

Jan. 11 2011 Cat in the Hat's Learning Library
In this latest installation of the Cat in the Hat's Learning Library, the Cat takes Sally and Dick to explore different kinds of deserts around the world,  from the hot, dry Sonoran and Mojavi to the bitter cold Gobi and Antarctica. Young readers learn why deserts are dry, and how plants and animals—including cactus, kangaroos, camels, penguins, roadrunners, and many others—have adapted to survive the unforgiving climate. Also included: how sand dunes are formed; the reason we see mirages, and how shallow water beneath the surface of the ground can create an oasis. Fans of the new PBS preschool science show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! (which is based on the Learning Library series) won't want to miss this hot new addition to the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars favorite series May 22 2011
By Kerryann Kenney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Do you want to know why Deserts are Dry? It is because they are cloudless and the land cannot hold the moisture. I did not know that! We live in a suburb of Phoenix, Arizona. I bought this book for my son's birthday in June. I am happy to say we both learned while reading this book.

My 5 year old is a good reader but he is young. This series is great because it provides loads of science but it's not too hard. The pages are broken up with wonderful illustrations, sections, captions but the text is readable and follows a semblance of a narrative. There are many science books you can select for a young reader but some are plagued with small font, some have vocabulary that is too hard, some lack appealing pictures or are simply too much. This series (and book) is perfect.

Dr. Seuss's Learning Library hits the right note for a kinder/first grader that loves science. The series is so extensive that it is easy to pick a science topic that suits your child. My son's favorite in the series is about the Human BodyInside Your Outside: All About the Human Body (Cat in the Hat's Learning Library)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for primary level explaining about deserts June 5 2013
By Helen O'Neill - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Great book explaining the deserts, especially the Sonoran Desert in Arizona. My grandson is interested in the causes of things, so he found it fascinating. He also is at the right age for the early reading books and this was perfect for him. There is even a glossary in the back of the book explaining the pertinent words used that are not in everyone's everyday vocabulary. Of course, there is plenty of repetition of sight words throughout the book as there are in every early reader, yet this is one of the more advanced early readers. It is a wonderful book for the primary level. This merits a Thumbs Up!
