What is The Cat in the Hat about?
Poor Dick and Sally. It's cold and wet and they're stuck in the house with nothing to do . . . until a giant cat in a hat shows up, transforming the dull day into a madcap adventure and almost wrecking the place in the process!
Written by Dr. Seuss in 1957 in response to the concern that "pallid primers [with] abnormally courteous, unnaturally clean boys and girls' were leading to growing illiteracy among children”, The Cat in the Hat (the first Random House Beginner Book) changed the way our children learn how to read.
Why The Cat in the Hat in Polish is recommended for Polish and bilingual children?
Children learning Polish as a second language in UK and other countries are often keen to read English but reading in Polish can be very difficult for them.
Polish and bilingual children in England know this story from the English school or library, which is why we recommend it to encourage kids to read in Polish.
Reading this books together with a bilingual child is a great opportunity to meet The Cat in the Hat and other characters in another language, compare the Polish translation with the English original, talk about language differences, as well as great fun and a lot of laughter.
For Polish and bilingual children we also recommend the following books:
• Czytam sobie is a series of books similar to English reading programme (different levels of difficulty)
