Challenge 68 - The Cat in the Hat

 The Cat in the Hat: Green Back Book (Dr. Seuss - Green Back Book),Dr. Seuss

Quiet Please Crafters! You’re in The Library now.

The story

This time our book is the children's picture book classic, The Cat in the Hat by Dr Seuss. 

Written in 1957, Dr Seuss ( the pen name of Theodor Geisel) wrote a book that he hoped 'first-graders can't put down'. He used simple phonic and high-frequency words and rhymes so that the children could learn to read it themselves.

Maybe you'll make something with a cat in a hat on it, or just a cat or just a hat or just use the colours from the cover.....or maybe you've thought of something else....

More details on my blog.

This challenge will close on 4th October. 

 Challenge 67 - Forty Whacks - will remain open for another week.

I hope you'll join The Library.

This challenge we have a Visiting Librarian, Arlene (aka A.Rose) , and she has chosen Forty Whacks by David Kent.. In this 1992 true crime book , Kent describes 'new evidence' in the 1890s murder of Sarah and Andrew Borden, for which his daughter was tried and acquitted. You may have heard of the case through the nursery rhyme, 'Lizzie Borden took an axe and gave her mother forty whacks, and when she saw what she had done, she gave her father forty-one.'
