What do deer, reindeer, Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, elves, and a bunny rabbit have to do with the Christmas Cats in Silly Hats?
Deer are beautiful creatures. I love to watch them visit the corn feeder we have out for them. Unfortunately for me, they usually visit it after dark or when I’m not looking out the window. Once in a while though, I’m lucky enough to be looking out the window when they grace my yard with a visit.
Deer love to nibble the bark off trees. In The Christmas Cats Fear for the Deer, this is just what the deer in Scott County Park are doing. A bunny is worried about these deer. If someone doesn’t warn them to stop, hunters will be sent into the park to kill the deer to stop them eating the bark off the trees. Who will rescue the deer?
This bunny knows just who to call for help: the Christmas Cats in Silly Hats! He calls their emergency phone and alerts them to this situation. The Christmas Cats accept the challenge to save the deer, but how will they do it?
Cy, the cop cat, comes up with a plan to save them that involves the help of the jolly guy in a red suit who lives at the North Pole. Will he be able to do what they want?
Children (and their parents) will really enjoy this story written in Dr. Seuss-style rhyme with its enchanting illustrations. The last two pages are especially for the young and young at heart. The first page is a maze where you help the deer get from the center to Santa Claus and his reindeer. The second page is a picture to color. When you (those aged 3-10) are done coloring the picture of Santa and his reindeer, it can be sent to the website, and it will be posted online for everyone to see. What child wouldn’t be thrilled with that?
