The sun did not shine.
It was too wet to play.
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold, wet day.
This is how Dr. Seuss 's The Cat in the Hat begins. It is a rhyming story about two bored children (written in the first person plural form - we) on a rainy day who suddenly are surprised by the coming of a talking cat to their house and his extravagant activities and ideas.
This book written in 1957 was meant to help children read and enjoy it.
