The legendary Dr. Seuss’ most beloved character is making his way around the Texas Panhandle.

I remember every night when I was a kid my and my sister would make my dad read us a Dr. Suess book every night before I could sleep. I could probably recite most of the books to this day if you asked. That is why I was low-key excited a few years ago when PBS came out with the award-winning TV show "The Cat in the Hat Knows A Lot About That!"  In true PBS form, it has an educational undertone focusing on science and math for kids in pre-school.

Now the TV Show and Books are coming to life! The Cat in the Hat will make many appearances all over the next week.

  • Storytelling at Amarillo Public Library: On February 3rd at the Downtown Library you can bring the kiddos to come to listen to The Cat in the Hat tell stories and take pictures for free!
  • Storytelling at Killgore Memorial Library in Dumas: Don't worry Dumas! The Cat in the Hat will be having the same storytelling event on February 6.
  • Family Night at McDonald's: On February 7 you can have dinner as a family at the McDonald's on Teckla in Amarillo from  6 to 7:30 p.m and take pictures with our favorite cat
