A signed edition of this beloved children's classic. From the introduction to First Editions of Dr. Seuss Books: A Guide to Identification by Helen and Marc Younger and Dan Hirsch- "The Cat in the Hat brought the basic concepts of reading to tens and thousands of children who were learning to read without being taught. The challenge of writing an entire book using only 220 different words and making the book enjoyable was enormous. It was a marked departure from the traditional Dick and Jane type readers. Teachers found that it especially motivated inner-city students and slower readers."

Signed by Seuss, "With Best Wishes Dr. Seuss," on the verso of the front free endsheet.
