Dean, James Pete the Cat: Cavecat Pete! HarperFestival, 2015. $4.99 PICTURE BOOK
Cavecat Pete wakes up to a beautiful day. When his friend
suggests they have a picnic, Pete likes that idea, and everyone is invited one
by one. We meet all of Pete’s dinosaur friends. When things start to go wrong,
what can Cavecat Pete do to help smooth things out?
This short book is packed with text, it kind of ends up being a
long story. Children will hear the names of many common dinosaurs and love Pete’s
always upbeat yet kicked back attitude. The pictures were simple and bright. I
would only consider adding this to my library if it came in a hardcover
edition, I am not sure some of these little ones that come with stickers and
