â€œA bird gets its namefrom the simplest things â€“what it does, how it looks,or the song that it sings. â€And so Dr. Seussâ€™ famous Cat in the Hat introduces young readers to the amazing world of birds. This title and others form part of a series of books that takes an off-beat look at nature and natural sciences through a fun combination of Seussian rhymes and zany illustrations. Aimed at early readers â€“ from four to seven year olds â€“ the books are designed to bridge the gap between concept books written for preschoolers and more formal non fiction titles that require fluent reading skills. By presenting the facts in a lively and rhythmic manner, they provide the critical foundation upon which complex facts and ideas can eventually be built. .
