PreS-Gr 2–The canine of the house sees the cat wearing a hat. Hats, he declares, are not for cats! Only dogs may wear hats. The feline keeps trying on all kinds of hats, and every time the dog says the same thing: hats are not for cats. After the cat and his friends try on every kind of hat imaginable, and even knock the dog’s hat off his head, the dog finally agrees that hats are indeed for everyone. The illustrations are colorful, whimsical, and expressive. The text is fanciful and rhyming, in the fashion of a Dr. Seuss book.
VERDICT This is a humorous, colorful book with delightful rhyme schemes that will make it a fine read-aloud.
