What's the story today? Funny that you should ask. We're going to take on a whale of a task! Join the Cat in the Hat as he introduces beginning readers to whales, dolphins and porpoises. This title and others form part of a series of books that takes an off-beat look at nature and natural sciences through a fun combination of Seussian rhymes and zany illustrations. Aimed at early readers -- from four to seven year olds -- the books are designed to bridge the gap between concept books written for preschoolers and more formal non fiction titles that require fluent reading skills. By presenting the facts in a lively and rhythmic manner, they provide the critical foundation upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be built.
