Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes
Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the cat is back again but this time he is rocking in his school shoes. Pete is starting school and is exploring all different places in the school such as his classroom, the library and the playground. This can be extremely nerve wracking but Pete takes it in stride! This is a great back to school book especially for students who are starting school for the first time. A couple activities that you could link to this is having students doing a writing exercise for something that they experienced for the first time at school and how they handled it. Another activity you could do for this book is having all your students create their own school shoes and explaining to their classmates why they decorated them the way they did.

Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes
Pete The Cat: I Love My White Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat is a fun book for children to explore colors, repetition, prediction, or Cause and Effect. Pete the Cat is walking along in his white shoes when he steps into piles of strawberries, blueberries, mud, and water. Each time that Pete steps into a pile of something it dyes his white shoes a different color before stepping into water and it washing his shoes clean- but then his shoes are wet! Does Pete let this bother him? "Goodness No!" A fun activity that could engage students following this story is having students color a pair of white shoes. They have to indicate what they "stepped in" to make their shoes turn the color they colored them. But it cannot be something that Pete stepped in. For example, I could color a pair of shoes purple and say that I stepped in grapes. You could also have the buckets of things Pete stepped in and then have students match them to the color that his shoes on little cards turned to introduce cause and effect.

Pete the Cat Rocks!
Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes - Eric Litwin,James Dean

Pete the Cat is such a good book to start the school year with. It comes with a c.d. for you and your students to jam to while reading the book. The illustrations are adorable! It is a wonderful book for your students to interact with. This book is for students on a DRA Level of 16. If you read it to the class as a whole, it is great for students from kindergarten to second grade.

Top drawer Scottish mystery
Rancour - Pete Brassett

Another top drawer murder mystery by Pete Brassett. This time we are on the Isle of Arran, following detective Charlie West's investigation into the death of a schoolgirl in the fells.
An elaborate plot, replete with Brassett's signature hilarious repartee between the characters. Not to be missed. Best served with at least a 12-year-old malt and a bacon sandwich.

"Thinly Veiled Advertising"
Breakfast Tea & Bourbon - Pete Bissonette
This is basically a story of a group of friends going on a treasure hunt trying to find a treasure based on a list of clues, which mirrored in real life a treasure hunt with clues from the story. I don't think I could have ever found the treasure based on the clues, besides someone found it in August I believe. Also, throughout the book, it felt as though the author was trying to sell products made by his company Learning Strategies, or to encourage me to try his favorite brand of bourbon. I won this book in a giveaway.
