The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That (review and giveaway)

If you didn't catch my last review over Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That: Wings and Things, check it out here. Or if you want to hear what I (and my kids) thought of the new Cat in the Hat: Tales About Tails, read on!

I will be honest, my kids haven't watched this DVD yet. It's not that they won't like it or it's inappropriate - no! Moose is just a little Big A when it comes to movies/shows - he likes what he knows. He keeps asking for Wings and Things when I put this new DVD in - and he cries, so I am not pushing it. He'll love it when he watches it, I know he will.

Both boys love The Cat in the Hat (Squirt says "ca" when we get it out and is forever bringing me the DVD). So much so that I'm thinking about that as a birthday theme (along with 50 other ideas).

Anyway, so Tales About Tails was up to me to watch myself. I tried watching it from their perspective, but that's hard. I will say I enjoyed the freshness of new episodes! I am not like Moose and Big A - I like new shows and movies! The first episode was my favorite - A Sticky Situation.

Nick and Sally go with the Cat to meet Betty the Beaver to get Nick an new drum stick (speaking of, I now am pondering where our drum sticks are...). One thing that always cracks me up is their moms - the kids just ask to go to this place or that with the Cat. The moms assume they're pretending so they agree to let them go; just a funny play on asking permission.

Martin Short is back voicing the Cat in the Hat. He does such a great job. We have a story book that goes along with one of the episodes from the last DVD. Martin's voice is so great as the Cat that I try to emulate it when I read. Wow, I'm a dork, right?

The story was great, explaining about beavers and their dams and such. The animation is still like good ol' Dr. Seuss books we all love. My other favorite part is the song they sing when they're getting ready to go on an adventure. I talked with a mom the other day about this show and she said there's always this song stuck in her head (she couldn't remember it at the time but I'd bet money it was this song).

I love How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I like to read my kids One Foot, Two Foot (or whatever it's called!) and the one with the guy that changes hats.
