   When Sally and Nick need to learn about babysitting, the Cat in the Hat takes them to meet an expert: King Cecil the Sea Horse! That's because when it comes to having babies, sea horses give birth in a very special way. The mom sea horse puts her eggs into a pouch on the dad, and he carries them there until the babies hatch (in his pouch) and swim out! Perfect for summer reading, nights with the babysitter, Father's Day--any day, really--this Little Golden Book based on an episode of the PBS Kids television show The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That! will keep kids laughing, teach them about a very unique animal, and even inspire conversations about gender roles!
