Beginning Reader Review of A Pet for Pete by James Dean

Read for: Early Reader Challenge
Synopsis: "Pete is back in New York Times bestselling artist James Dean's I Can Read beginning reader Pete the Cat: A Pet for Pete. When Pete gets a goldfish, Goldie, he decides to paint a picture of his new pet. Word spreads of Pete's cool paintings, and soon everyone wants one. But Pete doesn't have enough time to make one for everyone in town. With a little help from his mom, Pete finds the perfect solution so that everyone can enjoy a Goldie painting and Pete has time to finish his homework!"

My Review: This is a great Ready to Read level book, it has simple words and sentences, lots of repetition of words and sounds and of course the beloved Pete the Cat character. This book also has a lot of side elements that can be used while reading such as color identification and sizes. Munchkin really enjoyed this book and had fun pointing out the different colors and how fish can be fun pets even though you can play with or cuddle them.
My Rating: We are big Pete the Cat fans and this is a great beginning reader book. It also does a great job of showing kids about creativity and so many other things besides just learning to read.  We give it a rating of Four Paws!
