PBS KIDS and Random House join to support science learning for preschoolers nationwide with the premiere of "The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About That!™" on Monday, September 6, 2010. KPBS will air the program daily at 8:30 a.m. and at 2:30 p.m. on weekdays.

Voiced by award-winning actor Martin Short, Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat guides friends Sally and Nick - with a little help from the Fish, Thing 1 and Thing 2 - on fun-filled adventures where they make natural-science discoveries, from how bees make honey to why owls sleep during the day.

Filled with both adventure and silliness, "The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About That!™," based on the acclaimed The Cat in the Hat's Learning Library book series, will appeal to preschoolers' natural curiosity, and engage them in the process of scientific exploration and discovery.

"The Cat In The Hat Knows A Lot About That!™" supports young children’s science learning by introducing scientific inquiry skills, teaching core science concepts and vocabulary, and preparing preschoolers for kindergarten and first grade science curriculum — all in whimsical style.

Kids can visit the website for printable activities, games and to watch videos.
