The holiday season is in full swing in Spencer -- the lights are twinkling, the wreaths are hung, and Christmas bells are ringing.

A wonderful way to celebrate the season with everyone's favorite library cat.
This is a sweet, funny Step into Reading book that kids will gobble up—without realizing they are ingesting an important natural-history lesson!
Hide-and-seek is a great game, but Nick always finds where Sally is hiding. And that's no fun! Enter the Cat in the Hat. His friend Gecko is an expert at hiding. Maybe Gecko can share some tips with the kids? So off they go to the jungle, where Gecko teaches them how to hide in plain sight—using camouflage! Kids won't be able to hide their delight in this rhymed Step 2 book based on an episode from the hit PBS Kids TV show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! (Step 2 is a Step into Reading title for children who recognize familiar words and sound out new words with aural and visual cues. Step 2 books have simple stories, basic vocabulary, and short sentences.)
Fans of the hit PBS Kids' holiday special The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Christmas! can relive the fun over and over with this Step 3 adaptation of the complete episode, written for children who are ready to read independently. From the Cat's Christmas Eve Party (with animal guests from all over the world), 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 being home for the holidays is the best place to be!
