It's cold! I know, stating the obvious! A good day to remember this famous storybook quote:

"The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house all that cold, cold, wet day." ~The Cat in the Hat

It would be a good time for a visit from The Cat in the Hat to change things up and make a big fun mess! Since The Cat in the Hat won't really stop by, here are some websites and books that might help you figure out how to have some fun together on a cold, snowy day!

Brave Irene StorylineLogoSmall Listen to Al Gore read Brave Irene Brave Irene is Irene Bobbin, the dressmaker's daughter. Her mother, Mrs. Bobbin, isn't feeling so well and can't possibly deliver the beautiful ball gown she's made for the duchess to wear that very evening. So plucky Irene volunteers to get the gown to the palace on time, in spite of the fierce snowstorm that's brewing-- quite an errand for a little girl.
