If you have ever been to one of my story times, you would know that I love Pete The Cat. If possible, I try to work at least one book from the series into every time I read... at home, at the store, at the farmer's market! I love Pete The Cat!
For story time, I always try to chose something happy and light, not too wordy and good for all ages and Pete The Cat always fits into every catagory! The simple stories with songs woven through leave me feeling joyful and happy and there are also lessons being taught from colors to counting. What more can you ask for from a picturebook!
If you dont know what I'm talking about, meet Pete The Cat here:
