Have fun reading with the  best selling Pete the Cat series. These books are written by Eric Litwin and illustrated by James Dean.  The Pete the Cat books are fun and engaging and all kids (and grown ups) can’t help but love Pete!


Pete is a groovy cat that will keep you and your child singing, dancing and looking forward to reading!  In his books, Pete always sees the bright side of a problem and teaches kids to see the good in every situation.  These books are great tools for learning.  They are filled with traditional reading methods such including sight words and phonetics and also add music, singing, movement, rhyme, rhythm, call-and-response, and repetition. You can find color words, early math concepts, sequencing, and problem solving and friendship skills too!

These books give emerging readers many ways to fall in love with reading!  Check them out today!
