Pete the Cat is a lot of fun, although this one is not my favorite of all the Petes. It takes a lot to get me really excited about an early reader book. This one does it's job as a nice book for our youngest readers as we watch Pete take on surfing at the beach. Nothing earth shattering here.

Pete the Cat is one groovy cat at finding shells and building sand castles at the beach. But when it gets too hot, there’s only one way to cool off—jump into the ocean! Except Pete might be a scaredy-cat when it comes to the water.

Pete, Bob, and their mom go to the beach. Pete stays on the beach while Bob goes surfing. Eventually Pete's mom gets him into the water and before long, Bob teaches him to surf. This cute book teaches a lesson about fear!

takes a walk with his mother; they find seashells, they see a crab. Pete’s feet get wet; the water makes them feel cool, but the rest of Pete is hot.

It is time for lunch. Bob is wet and cool, but Pete is hot. He eats his sandwich and drinks his lemonade. Pete asks Bob to play ball, but Bob wants to go surfing again, so Pete plays catch with his mom.

What will Pete do when his mom says they should get their feet wet in the water?

=========

In this story, young children will see that it’s okay to be afraid and will see Pete dealing with his fear of going into the water.

This I Can Read book uses basic language, word repetition, and illustrations to help young emergent readers find success in reading. As with all My First books in this series, this is a book designed for shared reading with the young reader and an adult.

Delightful illustrations, a well-known and beloved character young readers will instantly recognize, and a clever story all work together to make this a perfect early reader selection.

Highly recommended, especially for fans of Pete the Cat.
