Pete the Cat is now in beginning reader format! In this cool new story, Pete makes the biggest sandwich he’s ever seen!

Pete the Cat launches into a groovy new format-My First beginning readers! In this hilarious I Can Read tale, Pete makes a sandwich so big that he has to share.

Pete the Cat: Play Ball! was fun and so I expected Pete the Cat: Pete’s Big Lunch to be equally so and it has a great message about sharing. That and it’s just fun and funny. I worked through reading this one with my 3.5 year old last night and it was an interesting experience. She knows her letters and sounds, but it not quite ready to blend yet on her own, however this kiddo loves reading. Pete’s Big Lunch builds and builds and the pictures are great cues that she was often able to guess what would be said, by taking a first letter sound and the image. It’s not quite reading, but it’s a fun start for her none the less. This is another one that would be great for discussing sequencing exercises.

James Dean knew he had found something special when he painted Pete, a black kitten he discovered in a cage at the animal shelter. James lives with his wife, Kim, also an artist, and five cats (Bob, Frida, Yoko, Audrey, and Marilyn). You can visit him online at www.petethecat.com.
