The Cat in the Hat: Wings and Things Review!

We were given the chance to review The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! Wings & Things by NCircle Entertainment.  I love that the episodes get the kids interested in science, especially animals! I am a huge animal lover. My father was a naturalist. In this episode the Cat in the Hat features:

Show Me the Honey: Telling you how bees make honey

Migration Vacation: Explaining what happens when birds migrate

I Love the Nightlife: Talking about night animals such as bats, owls and opossums

Oh Give Me a Home: Try to find a Hermit crab a new home

Many Ants Make Light Work: Learn about how ants work together to carry things heavier than them.

The shows were very entertaining and held Monkey’s attention the entire time.

Here’s a little from the press release:

Voiced by award-winning actor Martin Short, Dr. Seuss’s The Cat in the Hat guides friends Sally and Nick – with a little help from the Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2 – on fun-filled adventures where they make natural-science discoveries, from how bees make honey to why owls sleep during the day.

Filled with both adventure and silliness, THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT!, based on the acclaimed The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library book series, will appeal to preschoolers’ natural curiosity, and engage them in the process of scientific exploration and discovery.

“In the same way the original The Cat in the Hat book has introduced generations of children to the joys of reading, ‘The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!’ will encourage children to explore the wonders of science and nature,” says Kate Klimo, Dr. Seuss’s Random House publisher and Executive Director of Development for Random House Children’s Entertainment. “Dr. Seuss was so passionate about science, nature and the survival of the planet, he surely would have loved that the science-based book series he conceived is being brought to television in such grand fashion.”

Wings and Things“Kids’ favorite Dr. Seuss characters come to life on screen in this zany adventure that will spark a love of learning and an interest in science,” said Lesli Rotenberg, Senior Vice President of Children’s Media, PBS. “We are on a mission to cultivate positive views about science and scientists among the next generation — the American children who will become tomorrow’s innovators.”

THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! was created in response to recent findings that children graduating from kindergarten are less prepared to learn about science than about other subjects. The series supports young children’s science learning by introducing scientific inquiry skills, teaching core science concepts and vocabulary, and preparing preschoolers for kindergarten and first grade science curriculum — all in whimsical style.

A team of science and early childhood experts developed the curriculum for the first season’s 40 episodes, each of which begins with a question posed by Sally or Nick.  Although the Cat knows a lot of things, his insatiable curiosity to learn more about the world leads to adventures with Sally and Nick in his one-of-a-kind Thinga-ma-jigger, a marvelously Seuss-ian contraption that sprouts wings, pontoons, booster rockets, skis, and just about anything else needed to find the answer. The inquisitive gang travels to the bottom of the sea to observe giant sea worms, zips to the rain forest to visit animals living in Kapok trees, and shrinks to bee-size to visit a hive and learn how honey is made.  Guided by the Cat, the kids figure things out by observing, collecting and managing clues, making connections, constructing and evaluating theories, and having discussions — all in a preschool-appropriate manner.
