Learn to read with Pete the Cat as he heads to the beach!
Pete and his family go to the beach! Pete has lots of fun collecting shells and building a sand castle. It’s very hot, but Pete isn’t sure he wants to go in the water. The water looks scary! When his brother, Bob, offers to give him a surfing lesson, will Pete dare to give it a try?
Rock and roll with Pete in this brand-new story about everyone’s favorite groovy cat. Perfect for beginning readers!
This is awesome for a summer read for a family at or maybe headed to the beach. Watching Pete deal with his fear is perfect for the age of newness and uncertainty in a preschooler. Then of course the story is told in simple sentences very appropriate for the beginning reader.
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.
