The Cat in the Hat has inspired many children and adults with his adventures and interesting character. He is a cat that suddenly came to the home of Sally and “I” when it rains. The Cat in the Hat came with an umbrella in hand and the top of hat striped red and white. He casually walked into the home of Sally and the “I” and invites them both to have fun in the house.

The two children were indeed being bored because they can’t play outside the house couldn’t say anything, they were amazed by the arrival of an eccentric cat who can juggle it. Fortunately there is the Fish in the Pot reminding them that they shouldn’t misbehave and not to accept a foreign guest during their mother was away.

Well, unfortunately, The Cat in the Hat was already in action. He did acrobatics to put the Fish in the Pot at the end of her umbrella, while standing on a ball. His right hand is holding an umbrella, book, cake, toys, and others. The Cat in the Hat was to take the children to have fun! Moreover, coupled with the arrival of Thing One and Thing Two.

A Little History About The Cat In The Hat

The book is authored by Dr. Seuss as learning to read books for children, because he felt very bored with Dick and Jane books, the series that also teach children to read. Dr. Seuss was asked to write a practice reading book for children which “first-graders can’t put down!”. Then he was given a list of 225 words that should be used in his book. The 225 words are words that should be known by children. Nine months later, The Cat in the Hat was born with a 223 word derived from the list, as well as additional 13 words that aren’t from the list.

Dr. Seuss admitted that he took nine full months to complete this book because of the difficulty to make sentences that rhyme from 225 set words. He also had to read the list three times to find the right title, The Cat in The Hat.

With such popularity, it is no wonder that these Cat in the Hat cookies would be a fitting tribute.
