Wish For A Fish

The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library:
Wish for a Fish: All About Sea Creatures

I’m the Cat in the Hat, and I hear that you wish, to go down to the sea, and visit the fish.” And so Dr. Seuss’ famous feline plunges young readers from the sunny surface waters to the deepest ocean trenches in search of an amazing array of marine creatures.

This title forms part of a series of books that takes an off-beat look at natural history through a fun combination of Seussian rhymes and zany illustrations. Aimed at early readers – from four to seven years old – 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.
