The Cat in the Hat - Wings and Things product reviews

From one of the best known children's brands in the world comes this fun and educational DVD containing five short stories.

Why do birds migrate? Why do some animals sleep during the day and wake up at night? And where does honey come from? Those are just a few of Sally and Nick's questions about nature.

Luckily, The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! As he takes his young friends exploring all around the world, The Cat in the Hat helps children learn about bees, birds, and other critters.

Just as Dr. Seuss helped generations of children read, these stories allow young ones to explore nature and science!

We own The Cat in the Hat- Tales About Tails so when I saw Wings and Things was available at our local library I knew I had to borrow it for my girls. My nearly three year old was in giggles just watching the menu. She loves animals and facts so she was in her element with this DVD. My four year old also sat with her eyes glued to the screen for all six episodes (65 minutes).

As a parent and educator I loved the fun way The Cat in the Hat taught us (because I learnt as well as the kids) about animals and how this relates to our lives. I really liked how when talking about ant strength and colonies it reinforced how important it is for us to work as a team. When talking about nocturnal animals the DVD also talked about the animal's features which help it to navigate in the dark.

Although this wasn't written by the late great Dr Seuss Wings and Things has classic Seuss elements such as nonsense words, rhyme, good morals and educational fun. It was such a hit with my girls I will pick up our own copy if I see it in store.

I thought because this DVD series was about science and nature the younger kids would find it hard to follow, but it seems to be fun for everyone. Nick and Sally with the help of the Cat in the Hat manage to teach children about things such as how honey is made. Thing one and Thing two also feature in this series. They all go on adventures and make 'discoveries'. The Cat in the Hat's car - the 'Thinga-ma-jigger' - can journey down to the bottom of the sea to observe the giant sea worms and go to the rain forest to find out how many animals make their home there, or shrink down to the size of a bee to visit a hive and discover how honey is made.

I would aim this at about ages 4-8 as i think they would absorb the information much easier than preschoolers.

Would definately reccomend this, Such a classic.
