A Reindeer’s First Christmas/New Friends for Christmas by Tish Rabe; illustrated by Joe Mathieu and Aristides Ruiz
In A Reindeer’s First Christmas, narrator Ralph – a yearling caribou – tells how, with the help of the Cat in the Hat, Sally, Nick, and some new friends, he makes it home in time for Christmas and pulls Santa’s sled! In New Friends for Christmas, Sally and Nick learn that with a little help from family and friends – and a spare mini-Thinga-ma-jigger –it’s possible to accomplish almost anything!
A Very Crabby Christmas by Tish Rabe; illustrated by Dave Aikins
The Cat in the Hat has just received a special invitation! He and Sally and Nick have been invited to Mervin the Crab’s Crab Christmas Ball on Christmas Island. But soon after the Thinga-ma-jigger lands on the island, chaos ensues when Crab Nine (aka Sandy) goes missing. Is Sandy lost or injured? Will the ball go on as planned?
Home For Christmas by Tish Rabe
A Step Into Reading adaptation, Home for Christmas is written for children who are ready to read independently. From the Cat in the Hat’s Christmas Eve Party through his mishaps while attempting to return a young reindeer home in time to pull Santa’s sled, readers will be introduced to a herd of elephants with an uncanny ability to smell water, a pod of dolphins who can communicate across far distances, and a single-minded army of Christmas Island crabs – all of whom demonstrate how working together is the best way to solve a problem, and how home is the best place to be for the holidays!
Get ready to ho, ho, ho, ho with Nick, Sally, and the Cat in the Hat! Based on the PBS KIDS show THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! and the upcoming Christmas Special, this yuletide Doodle Book invites kids to color and also to create fun holiday images.
With 48 pages to color and an entire sheet of hologramatic stickers, Christmas has never been so colorful and bright!
There is also a The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas online game!
Watching The Cat in the Hat Knows a lot About Christmas is a yearly tradition for us. What is one of your favorite Christmas/Holiday traditions!
