Bedtime Story: Pete the Cat's Got Class by James Dean

Read for: Children's Book Challenge & We Love Pete the Cat

Synopsis: "New York Times bestselling author and artist James Dean brings us a new story about the classiest cat around—Pete! This time Pete teaches us how to add and subtract our way to loving math in Pete the Cat’s Got Class—which comes complete with a poster, stickers, and a set of 20 punch-out flash cards that teach counting, adding, and subtracting.

When Pete’s friend Tom has a tough time with math, our favorite blue cat steps in to help him out. With good friends, fun learning tools, and some extra help, it all adds up. Pete the Cat knows you can’t hate math—you just don’t love it yet!"

My Review: I have had this book sitting on our shelves for a while, I pick up Pete the Cat books whenever I can. Munchkin decided to read it for a book report for school and it was a great choice as he has been struggling with math lately. It was a great story to show kids and adults there is more than one way to learn something and sometimes you just have to find a way to relate what you love to what you are learning. This book also came with a load of extras including a poster and stickers and math flash cards that all relate to the story.

My Rating: Another great Pete the Cat book and with some great tips that kids can use with their own homework. Munchkin really liked this book and uses some of Pete's tools in his own math homework now.  We give it a rating of Four Paws and a Stump Wag!

Good Night! Sweet Dreams!


  1. Pete is an automatic pick up for me too. I love his cool way of teaching little things.
