Tune in to AETN for the Cat in the Hat-A-Thon, a two-hour event premiering on PBS KIDS March 2 at 7 a.m. and again at 1 p.m.  The Cat in the Hat-A-Thon celebrates the National Education Association’s Read Across America initiative, an annual motivation and awareness program that calls for every child in every community to celebrate reading on March 2, the birthday of Dr. Seuss. The two-hour marathon features four episodes of “The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That!”

Episodes include:

  • "Seasons"
  • “When I Grow UP/Doing it Differently“
  • “Hooray for Hair”/”Ice is Nice”
  • “Chasing Rainbows”/”Follow the Prints”

Watch a sneak peak here!

Find activities, games, and printables to go along with the episodes here.  For teachers and parents who would like Read Across America activities, visit the National Education Association and PBS Teachers and PBS Parents.

The celebration will continue online and on mobile. Video clips from all four episodes featured in “The Cat in the Hat-A-Thon” will be available for free online at www.pbskids.org/video and on the PBS KIDS video app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.

Kids will also be able to engage with the Cat and friends through games and video content online and on mobile devices, and parents will be able to enjoy a new Birthday Party Builder Tool on the PBS KIDS Shop website beginning March 1.
