Book Review for Ice is Nice by Bonnie Worth for the The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library Series
(Random House, August 10th, 2010)
The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library shows young readers that books can be entertaining and educational at the same time.
Ice is Nice is the latest book in this wonderful series, which talks to readers about the North and South Poles. The Cat in the Hat travels first to the North Pole then to the South, both of which are similar, yet are two very different places. On this journey, the reader will learn about many things, like why the North and South poles are so cold. As well as about the many people and wildlife that thrive in such frosty and unpredictable weather and how they are able to do so. The story has a bit of rhyme to it that will delight readers and is common to The Cat in The Hat books. The information provided is excellent for teachers and parents to help supplement what a child may already know about the North and South poles and about the environment.
Overall, this book was an enjoyable read and holds up to the educational value The Cat in the Hat Learning Library Series' instills.
