Pete the Cat and the Bad Banana is a My First I Can Read! book, which means it's perfect for shared reading with a child. Fans of Pete the Cat will delight in this I Can Read! tale featuring the grooviest cat, Pete!"

My Review: This was a great beginning reader book for those Pete the Cat lovers that are ready to move up in reading. It has simple sentences with familiar words. It also has a great story about trying something again after it didn't taste good one time. It is definitely a fun book that uses the familiar character to teach about flavors and compare different foods.
My Rating: This was a fun book that both Munchkin and I enjoyed reading, it is simple for those beginning readers and of course features the familiar Pete the Cat character.  We give it a rating of Four Paws.


  1. We are big fans of Pete in our house! Is this part of a group of books for beginner readers? Cause that would be amazing!

    1. I don't know if there is a series or group particularly but I do know there are several Beginning Reader Pete the Cat books. Some of the titles are Pet for Pete, Pete's Big Lunch, Play Ball, and Pete at the Beach. Those are just the ones we have read or that are on our shelf.
