As ambassadors for NCircle Entertainment we look forward to sharing with our readers educational and engaging entertainment for children as well as offering giveaways.
The Cat in the Hat is one of the most iconic felines in print and also now on television. Dr. Seuss’s character has transformed from making mischief to raising our awareness of nature and science. Armed with his vehicle, the Thingamajigger, he takes Sally and Nick on many adventures from the ocean to outer space to across time. NCircle Entertainment has released the movie the Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot about Camping which introduces children to not only the concepts of camping but also the benefits.
On the first day of summer vacation, Nick and Sally are looking for a new experience when Fish discusses his upcoming family vacation. The Cat in the Hat describes how they will arrive to the celebration in the wilderness and invites the kids along to go camping. Accompanying them in this journey are The Cat’s cousins Little Cat A, Little Cat B, and Little Cat C who have difficulty letting go of their electronic devices. As always, the music is upbeat as everyone learns about the benefits and fun that takes place when camping.
3 Reasons The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About Camping
is FUN-damentally Educational
Helps Kids Prepare for a Great Outdoor Adventure
Pack up your things and come along with me! The first song introduces the importance of being properly prepared when an embarking on an adventure. The Cat, Sally and Nick sing about the practical supplies they will need. If you are planning on camping with your kids, this introduces to young children the importance of having the right supplies.
Encourages Kids to See the Beauty in Nature
Although the Cat appreciates and encourages the exploration of nature, his family members Little Cats A, B and C cannot let go of their electronic devices. Each time they played on their devices, they missed flowers and creatures. Eventually, they learn the wonders they have been missing. This encourages my own kids to put down the devices and see the beauty right in front of them!
Teaches Children to Expect the Unexpected
The Fish has big expectations for his upcoming family celebrations but little things go wrong. From the new fishbowl that is damaged to a ripped tie with his fancy new suit, this camping trip is an unexpected adventure. In real life, we try to plan out the perfect trip but it doesn’t always happen how we imagined it. I liked how throughout the episode little things went wrong but ultimately everyone had a fabulous time. This is a strong and positive message for children (and adults).
