With the Cat in the Hat having a vast history that includes some richly important information when it comes to phonics and the way children learn to read. In 1954, Theodor Geisel in response to a Life magazine posting entitled Why do students bog down on the first R?, referring to reading, created The Cat in the Hat as his reply. John Hersey the author of the original article was lamenting as to why children had such a hard time learning to read as opposed to other skills they picked up on fairly fast. Hersey's arguments were that the children may have had such a hard time learning as none of the primary books, or the books provided by the educational department, contained any pictures that the children could relate to. Instead they regularly showed extra studious children who were unusually clean and perky and the children had no interest in them. Herseys theory that children would learn faster from characters who made mistakes and had to learn from them, instead of insipid children who were angelic by nature. Most people are amazed at the history behind many of the shows from the present and past. Like others before them the times of past and the recordings are often as interesting now as they were many years ago. For this reason, fans of the show have held strong and their popularity has continued to grow.

In a response that went down in history Theodor Geisel made his reply by writing The Cat in the Hat featuring the tall cat who wore a red and white striped hat with a red bow tie. This cat later went on to appear in six more of his books. But Geisel made a phonetic point with his books. Children had a hard time learning not only because of the lack of reading relationship with the characters involved, but because the words were incredibly difficult for those aged school children.
