ABOUT THE CAT IN THE HAT

The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!TM is designed to spark a love of learning and an interest in science in preschool-aged children. In each program, the Cat in the Hat and his friends Sally and Nick go on a science adventure. Guided by the Cat, the children figure things out by engaging in science inquiry. They ask questions, make observations, make predictions, plan investigations, collect data, make discoveries, and generate and discuss ideas about how the world works.
