Kaiser Permanente

“Oh, The Healthy Things You Can Do”

The mischievous Cat in the Hat has charmed and entertained children for over 40 years in best selling and easy to read books, movies and educational programs for the young and young-at-heart. In this whimsical floral scene of Kaiser Permanente’s eighth Rose Parade float entry his goal is to get kids up and moving with imaginative fun-filled exercise and activities. “Oh, the Healthy Things You Can Do” is about finding your own thing. Being healthy has no rules! Run or walk, dance, bike or hula-hoop. Read a book, or read to someone else. These are all things that make your mind, body and spirit healthy. Much to the delight of Sally and Conrad, swinging high above the scene, the Cat in the Hat takes a break from his usual form of chaos and takes a moment to read to Thing One and Thing Two out in the colorful garden and fresh air.  This energizing scene gets the kids outdoors and moving as they swing, teeter-totter and bike.  With the Cat in the Hat’s help these kids are starting off the New Year right with all the healthy things they can do!
