Nova Scotia, Canada – Pat Hatt lives in Nova Scotia. The Nova Scotia climate is sub artic, with lots of frail boreal forests of Pines and mixed hardwoods that are often dripping with snow and rain. The winters there are long, cold, snowy, and rainy, with short, cool and wet summers, and for the people living there it is a challenge to keep ones mind busy and spirits uplifted so people button up for the chill in the air, wear snickers and rain coats and spend much of their time indoors watching TV, and Movies. Nonetheless, the people spend time at local Irish taverns drinking Irish Ale, or Screetch, which is the locally made rum, and listen to the local folk music with its heavy Celtic influences. Making up word games and reciting memory rhymes are often excellent past times that keep their minds active under often-dreary weather conditions.
Pat Hatt was born into that Nova Scotia environment, where rhyming is a lyrical art, and was remarkably inspired by the works of Dr. Seuss, who was an American writer, poet, and cartoonist most widely known for his children’s books; Green Eggs and Ham, and The Cat in the Hat. Dr. Seuss’s books are always humorous and uplifting, and in the same vain Pat’s books are loaded with wisdom and humor that can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. It’s easy to see the direct influence from Dr. Seuss by reading this quote from Pat Hatt’s blog where he say’s “Seuss can stare at the cat’s caboose. For the cat let’s his rhyming loose for all the kiddies out there. So expect many and find below the Children’s Books from my lair. These ones do rhyme all the way through. Thanks for the view.”
Pat’s books have received many rave reviews, and here is just one:
“What a great children’s book! The fun rhyming and plot to the story encourages young readers to read on! The sentence structure is simple and fun. I can see this becoming a “Read it one more time” favorite and one that kids will enjoy quoting from again and again. Great lessons of forgiveness, honesty and friendship. And the adorable illustrations bring the story to life! –By Elizabeth Brock.
