The Cat in the Hat Safari, So Good DVD and Book Review + Safari, So Good DVD Giveaway!


Do you know that March 2nd is Dr. Seuss’ Birthday? Yes! :)

And to celebrate this event, Hip Mama's Place has partnered with NCircle Entertainment to bring you this fun book and DVD review of the latest addition to The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library book series, Safari, So Good!  Plus, give you an opportunity to win a copy of the Safari, So Good DVD!  :)
 
About the DVD and Book:
 
Join the Cat in the Hat on this brand-new safari adventure! Help him find the missing stripes for his hat, swing with silly monkeys and discover how footprints are made!
 
           
It's time for safari, so come and explore with the Cat and his friends on adventures galore. We will reach for the treetops and swing through the trees, When we walk like giraffes and swing like monkeys! 

My Take: Featuring Martin Short as the voice of the Cat in the Hat, this DVD is a chock-full of wonderful safari adventure that will take your young reader's imagination to new heights. Plus, the funny characters make this movie truly entertaining for your young reader while she learns new vocabulary words and having fun!

This DVD includes five delightful stories:  Treetop Tom, Stripy Safari, King of Swing, Elephant Walk and Follow the Prints  
  
SRP: $10.99. This DVD is now available at NCircleEntertainment.com or a retailer near you, including Target, Wal-Mart, and Toys R Us!
    

The Cat takes Sally and Nick to Africa--where they learn how animals are either predators or prey, that elephants tend to favor one tusk over the other, how to tell the difference between a white and black rhino (both of which are gray!), that a leopar'd black spots are called rosettes and much, much more!   

My Take: If you are introducing your beginning reader to the African Wildflife, this is a great book that shows and teaches the many variety of animals and their characteristics. The illustrations of animals in this book are superb! It's also a great book to learn new vocabulary words related to animals in the safari. Both of my five and six year old boys really enjoyed this book. What a wonderful addition to our The Cat in the Hat library collection! :)

SRP: $12.99. This book is now available at seussville.com, Wal-Mart, and Barnes & Noble
