Pete the Cat

Pete the Cat
The Wheels on the Bus
James Dean

Pete the Cat is driving a bus for all of the little kittens and one small dog. Following the same rhyming pattern of the popular children's song, the book takes the reader on a journey through a day of sounds with Pete the cat. The book is written to follow the song, so is not written as a story. Young readers will enjoy the rhyming patterns that can be either read or sung. The illustrator has filled each page with color and helps to bring the story alive. The different fonts make the writing stand out on the brightly colored pages. The simplistic illustrations will appeal to the young reader's eyes. It could help little singers develop an interest in reading. Young fans of Pete the cat will love this book and want to add it to their favorites. My children hadn't heard of Pete the cat books yet, but still enjoyed the illustrations and lyrical wording.

I received this book free of charge from Children's Lit in exchange for my honest review.
