Who isn’t wild about Dr. Seuss! I’m excited to pass on the news that PBS Kids is celebrating Dr. Seuss’ birthday with a Cat In The Hat-A-Thon Multimedia Event on March 2nd. Dr. Seuss (Theodore Geisel) would have been 108! PBS Kids will be featuring a two hour marathon of “THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! (check your local listings). Also, children can play games and watch video content online and handheld devices, plus parents can enjoy the new Birthday Party Builder Tool on the PBS KIDS Shop website, which launches on March 1. The Party Builder offers customized recommendations based on the number of guests and exclusive, personalized products. It’s a fun and easy way for parents to plan a fun party featuring their kids’ favorite characters, including the Cat in the Hat (of course).
THE CAT IN THE HAT-A-THON will feature two brand new episodes, “Seasons – Spring and Summer/Fall and Winter,” which takes the Cat, Nick and Sally on a journey through the four seasons, and “When I Grow Up/Doing It Differently,” in which Nick and Sally explore what it means to grow up and learn that trying a different approach can sometimes be the best way to solve a problem. The marathon will also include encore presentations of “Hooray for Hair/Ice Is Nice” and “Chasing Rainbows/Follow the Prints.”
