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!
