Review & Giveaway: The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!- Tales about Tails!

Now my kids are big fans of the PBS series The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That! In fact we have one of the other DVDs (Wings and Things) and we took it with us on a road trip to the beach! Well it just so happens with this second DVD we happened to be on a road trip again! What a perfect time to hang out with the Cat! Here's a little bit about this recent release coming out TODAY April 5, 2011:


What’s better than a tale or two?
Tales about Tails from you know who!
It so happens the Cat knows a lot about tails
There are tails on beavers, and even on whales! 
You can see how a monkey's tail helps him climb high
Or a rattlesnake's tail warns of danger nearby.
When the kids want to perform a little dance,
They meet a bird named Tango, who teaches a prance.
Take a journey with your favorite Cat,
The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!

My Take: OK first you can't beat the fact that the synopsis is in a rhyming format but after all that's what Dr. Seuss is all about. This DVD is so much fun! Not only do kids learn about animals but they also learn about what animals do. Sure, there are plenty of DVDs out there that tell you the names of animals and where they live but how many actually tell you the importance of a monkey's tail or why I rattlesnake has a rattle? AND how many of those DVDs are actually entertaining for the kids and the parents. Yes, I know. I watch them too!!

So on our road trip I stick this in and off we go. The kids are older now so they have headphones that they wear as they watch the movies. It wasn't long before I heard, "It's go, go, go, go" in the backseat. That's the song the Cat in the Hat and the kids sing when they go on their adventures! I actually found myself singing along as my husband looked at me in horror and asked if I actually watched these too! =) Then the next thing I know I hear, " a mon-key!, a mon-key", coming from my 3 year old daughter. she loves monkeys! So I guess that tells you that this DVD gets a thumbs up from my kids!

As a parent I love that the DVD has 5 different episodes: A sticky situation, Trees Company, Rain Game, You Should be Dancing and A Tale about Tails; for a total of 60+minute. I also love that the voice of the Cat in the Hat is Martin Short!
