Book 56/100: Pete the Cat - the Wheels on the Bus by James Dean
Pete the Cat: The Wheels on the Bus - James Dean

This is my first Pete the Cat book, and I know it's not representative since it's an adaptation of the Wheels on the Bus song rather than an original story. Still, it's tons of fun! The Wheels on the Bus is one of my favorite songs from childhood, and the rhythm it provides makes this a really fun readaloud (even if my month-old baby did start crying halfway through -- I'll force this book on him again when he's older.) Also, you can't really go wrong with these droll illustrations, which serve as a fun counterpoint to the actions you can do with your child at different points in the song. The illustrations seem to tell a subversive story all their own that is completely disregarded in the text -- like, why is there a lone dog riding this bus full of cats? Is he a dog on the outside but a cat on the inside? I look forward to exploring more Pete the Cat!

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

The book Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes by Eric Litwin is part of a series where pete the cat goes on cute little adventures. This would be a book that I would read to my class as a whole group on the first day or two of school. I think it's a great icebreaker for children to relate to something such as cool new shoes for school. I would have my students do a few different activity sheets like a crossword puzzle with words from the book and an activity sheet where the students list what happened in the first, middle, and last part of the book. I would rate this book a four and a half out of five and this book is listed as AD600L on the Lexile scale.

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

This book is a cool and fun book that can be read along by signing or just reading with a rhythm. Pete and his new school shoes will have you excited about school and school shoes. I can read this book at the beginning of the school year to show students that Pete does the same school activities as they will. I can also have them color some rocking school shoes or take a picture of their school shoes and put the picture up as a hallway display.

Pete the Cat: Pete's Big Lunch
Pete the Cat: Pete's Big Lunch: My First I Can Read - James Dean

Pete the Cat: Pete's Big Lunch is an absolutely perfect story for emergent readers in kindergarten. This author has really taken new emergent reader books by storm as I and thousands of others have fallen in love with silly likable Pete. In this book Pete is trying to make his lunch but he is just not satisfied with anything he chooses. However, when he invites his friends over to share his lunch with him does it become truly endearing. This book teaches students that sharing can make you feel good and make some activities more enjoyable when shared with friends. Along with the character building lesson on sharing I would personally focus on teaching the children about nutrition with this book. A great activity would be to have the kids bring in one healthy and one non healthy item from home. We can all share our items with the class and discuss what makes them healthy or not healthy.

Reading Level: Kindergarten through 3rd Grade.
