SEUSSBLOG.wordpress.com posted this about THE CAT IN THE HAT SONGBOOK:
http://seussblog.wordpress.com/2013/05/09/the-cat-in-the-hat-song-book/
It is fabulous entry, listing all the song titles with a summary of each song and even some images of the inside pages.  The post also includes biographical information about Dr. Seuss and what was happening in his personal life at the time.  It was hard to read, I have to admit, but Dr. Seuss was a human being named Theodor Seuss Geisel and of course his life was filled with drama, loves and losses like everyone else’s.
