At least it never gets old if you are 3 years old.
My son loves this book. It is a classic, you will surely remember 2 of the characters "thing 1" and "thing 2" who love to have fun and make a mess. The Cat is a giant playfull character that gets into lots of trouble, and then teaches the kids that they must clean up their mess at the end.
If you are looking for a good bedtime story for a 2 to 5 year old, then I would recommend this book to you.

The Cat in the Hat is a hard-hitting novel of prose and poetryin which the author re-examines the dynamic rhyming schemes and bold imagery of some of his earlier works, most notably Green Eggs and Ham, If I Ran the Zoo, and Why Can't I Shower With Mommy? In this novel, Theodore Geisel, writing under the pseudonym Dr. Seuss, pays homage to the great Dr. Sigmund Freud in a nightmarish fantasy of a renegade feline helping two young children understand their own frustrated sexuality.
The story opens with two youngsters, a brother and a sister, abandoned by their mother, staring mournfully through the window of their single-family dwelling. In the foreground, a large tree/phallic symbol dances wildly in the wind, taunting the children and encouraging them to succumb to the sexual yearnings they undoubtedly feel for each other. Even to the most unlearned reader, the blatant references to the incestuous relationship the two share set the tone for Seuss' probing examination of the satisfaction of primitive needs. The Cat proceeds to charm the wary youths into engaging in what he so innocently refers to as "tricks." At this point, the fish, an obvious Christ figure who represents the prevailing Christian morality, attempts to warn the children, and thus, in effect, warns all of humanity of the dangers associated with the unleashing of the primal urges.
In response to this, the cat proceeds to balance the aquatic naysayer on the end of his umbrella, essentially saying, "Down with morality; down with God!"
After poohpoohing the righteous rantings of the waterlogged Christ figure, the Cat begins to juggle several icons of Western culture, most notably two books, representing the Old and New Testaments, and a saucer of lactal fluid, an ironic reference to maternal loss the two children experienced when their mother abandoned them "for the afternoon." Our heroic Id adds to this bold gesture a rake and a toy man, and thus completes the Oedipal triangle.
Later in the novel, Seuss introduces the proverbial Pandora's box, a large red crate out of which the Id releases Thing One, or Freud's concept of Ego, the division of the psyche that serves as the conscious mediator between the person and reality, and Thing Two, the Superego, which functions to reward and punish through a system of moral attitudes, conscience, and guilt. Referring to this box, the Cat says, "Now look at this trick. Take a look!" In this, Dr. Seuss uses the children as a brilliant metaphor for the reader, and asks the reader to re-examine his own inner self.
The children, unable to control the Id, Ego, and Superego allow these creatures to run free and mess up the house, or more symbolically, control their lives. This rampage continues until the fish, or Christ symbol, warns that the mother is returning to reinstate the Oedipal triangle that existed before her abandonment of the children. At this point, Seuss introduces a many-armed cleaning device which represents the psychoanalytic couch, which proceeds to put the two youngsters' lives back in order.
With powerful simplicity, clarity, and drama, Seuss reduces Freud's concepts on the dynamics of the human psyche to an easily understood gesture. Mr. Seuss' poetry and choice of words is equally impressive and serves as a splendid counterpart to his bold symbolism. In all, his writing style is quick and fluid, making The Cat in the Hat impossible to put down. While this novel is 61 pages in length, and one can read it in five minutes or less, it is not until after multiple readings that the genius of this modern-day master becomes apparent.

Think about it...what author has most likely been read (or read to) by virtually every American Man, Woman or child? This guy is a genius! I enjoyed him as a kid and I still enjoy him now. I consider The Cat in the Hat to be one of the greatest existential books of all time.
P.S. Thing One and Thing Two are the quintesential anarchists.

I like this book for a number of reasons. Firstly it is a reasonable length for a bedtime story. Secondly it is in poem-form rather than prose, which makes it easy to read quickly. Thirdly it is original and witty with scope for dramatic reading. And finally it provides a simple way of introducing the alphabet.

Of the Dr Seuss books I think it is the best. Why it should be out of print I cannot imagine!

On a completely different tack, I've just managed to find a copy of this to send to Karen and Shellie Poole of Alisha's Attic. I'm a fan of their music (see [...]) and apparently Karen hates pink scum in the bath too!

I've now read Cat in the Hat to my 2 ½ year-old son everynight since we took it off the shelf two weeks ago. He identifiesletters, anticipates many of the words and asks several times areading for a reassuring peak at the last page with mom's feet walking in the door.
Cat in the Hat is a joy. Beyond the fun of the words and story, an implicit subversive message resides merrily with the book's affirmation of order and stability in a child's world. For me this is THE classic book of childhood and one that should hold a child's interest for years, even as it has held mine for the past two weeks.

High drama, thrills, spills, chills... Uh, okay, not really. But if by some miracle you do not know of this book, perhaps if you have only recently learned English yourself, you really ought to know about it. It is so worth it. Everyone loves "The Cat in the Hat", it is a major part of our culture, at least in terms of what culture we expose our children to. Very funny, very helpful as a beginning reader.

The Cat in the Hat shows the bored children how to have fun in the house on a rainy day.The fish is naturaly worried about this intruder(and fish are afraid of cats anyway)but the Cat also shows the children a very important lesson-after the fun is done,we should always clean up.
I heard it was hard for Seuss to write this because he had to stick to words that already existed and refrain from making up words,as he usualy did.He might think of neat names for things,but he had to stick with Thing One and Thing Two.
Beginner Books-which all children can learn to read through-have been written ever since by Seuss and other authors.

This was my all time favorite book as a little girl. My mom says that I asked for it to be read every single night for months until she almost couldn't stand it. Her hard work paid off because one night, I read it to her. Then that became a favorite living room trick with guests...the 4 year old reading Cat in the Hat out loud and turning the pages in all the right spots...of course because I had memorized it. I am buying it right now for my new little 2 month old boy. I hope he likes it as much as I did!

The cat in the hat ist ein Buch das Kinder und Erwachsene gleichermaßen bezaubert. In wundervollen Reimen und Bildern wird eine Phantasiegeschichte dargestellt, in der es darum geht, dass eine Katze zwei Kindern einen Besuch abstattet. Der Junge und das Mädchen langweilten sich bei schlechtem Wetter zu Hause, was The cat in the hat umgehend ändert. Der Autor erzählt eine lustige Geschichte, über die nicht nur Kinder lachen können. Auch Erwachsene werden ihren Spaß an dieser Katze haben. Die Reime in diesem Buch enthalten ausschließlich Wörter, die ein Kind, welches gerade erst lesen lernt bereits kennt. Gerade deswegen ist es ein ideales Lehrbuch der englischen Sprache. Prädikat empfehlenswert!
