I’m super excited, because on November 21, PBS KIDS will premiere the first-ever Cat in the Hat Christmas special, THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT CHRISTMAS! Set to be a new holiday family tradition, this adventure follows the Cat, Nick and Sally on a journey around the world to help a lost reindeer find his way home in time for Christmas. Through this new multiplatform program from the hit PBS KIDS series THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT!, kids and parents will explore natural science through new content on-air, online and beyond.
We actually received a copy already and my daughter loves it, this will be on our new MUST have list for every Holiday Season. Cat in the Hat did it again this is a wonderful show to enjoy for the entire family. Pull it out and watch after Thanksgiving dinner each yet, this sure will be a fun tradition for everyone in your family. I know it will be in mine.
On-air special: Sure to be a holiday favorite for the entire family for years to come, this adventure finds the Cat in the Hat, Nick and Sally on a journey around the world to help a lost reindeer find his way home to Freezeyourknees Snowland in time for Christmas. On the way, the Thinga-ma-jigger breaks down, and they depend on a variety of animals – from African bush elephants to bottlenose dolphins to red crabs – and their remarkable abilities to help them make an amazing journey home.
The one-hour special premieres on Wednesday, November 21 on PBS KIDS, with encore presentations throughout Thanksgiving weekend and in December (check local listings).
But wait, there is more, you have to check out the Online Game: In the new online game Freezeyourknees, Follow Me, Please!, Ralph the Reindeer is a long way from Freezeyourknees Valley. The Cat in the Hat is giving the lost reindeer a ride home when the Thinga-ma-jigger suddenly loses its power and makes an emergency landing. Only you can guide Ralph back to his family in time for Christmas – with help from some amazing animal friends! Freezeyourknees, Follow Me, Please! offers players three levels of game play, each level its own animal-themed “Follow Me” challenge. Grounded in an animal science curriculum, THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT CHRISTMAS! game will be available at PBSKIDS.org/catinthehat starting November 7.
To keep the cheer going this holiday season, NCircle Entertainment just released THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT CHRISTMAS! on DVD. The DVD will be available at retail nationwide so that families can continue watching throughout the holidays. For more information, visit NCircle.
And what is the cozy Holiday Season without books? BORING, of course. So there are a bunch of new books released by Random House Children’s Books, be sure to check them all out below, you don’t want to miss them in your collection.
To extend the PBS KIDS Christmas special into a reading experience, in September 2012, Random House Children’s Books published a selection of accompanying titles in trade paperback, Golden Book, Step Into Reading and activity book formats. Featuring the same fun take on science that parents have come to appreciate in all THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT! episodes, children can now watch and read with the Cat in the Hat this holiday season!
A Reindeer’s First Christmas/New Friends for Christmas by Tish Rabe; illustrated by Joe Mathieu and Aristides Ruiz; In A Reindeer’s First Christmas, narrator Ralph – a yearling caribou – tells how, with the help of the Cat in the Hat, Sally, Nick, and some new friends, he makes it home in time for Christmas and pulls Santa’s sled! In New Friends for Christmas, Sally and Nick learn that with a little help from family and friends – and a spare mini-Thinga-ma-jigger –it’s possible to accomplish almost anything!
A Very Crabby Christmas by Tish Rabe; illustrated by Dave Aikins; The Cat in the Hat has just received a special invitation! He and Sally and Nick have been invited to Mervin the Crab’s Crab Christmas Ball on Christmas Island. But soon after the Thinga-ma-jigger lands on the island, chaos ensues when Crab Nine (aka Sandy) goes missing. Is Sandy lost or injured? Will the ball go on as planned?
Home For Christmas by Tish Rabe; A Step Into Reading adaptation, Home for Christmas is written for children who are ready to read independently. From the Cat in the Hat’s Christmas Eve Party through his mishaps while attempting to return a young reindeer home in time to pull Santa’s sled, readers will be introduced to a herd of elephants with an uncanny ability to smell water, a pod of dolphins who can communicate across far distances, and a single-minded army of Christmas Island crabs – all of whom demonstrate how working together is the best way to solve a problem, and how home is the best place to be for the holidays!
