Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

What should I wear?” asks Pete, who wants to look cool. Everyone he asks suggests a different part of his wardrobe, from his mother’s favorite, “your yellow shirt,” to the school bus driver’s favorite, “your polka dot socks.” After trying on three shirts, he adds long pants, short pants, socks, boots, a striped tie, and a baseball hat. A double-page spread shows Pete wearing this assembled outfit and asks, “Does he look cool?” Kids will know the answer, and so does Pete, who changes into his favorite clothes and knows he looks cool. In both the bright images and simple words, Dean delivers the “be yourself” message with simplicity, economy, and humor. Beginning readers will find plenty to enjoy here, from the short words, brief sentences, and large type to the bold black lines, plaintive eyes, and vivid colors that define the distinctive forward-facing characters. An engaging and ultimately amusing book from the Pete the Cat series for beginning readers. Preschool-Grade 1. --Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover

Pete the Cat can't decide what to wear to look cool at school. Pete learns it's not what you wear, but how you wear it that makes you cool.

Customer Reviews

It is a easy read for beginners.

Not until Pete decides to put on the things that HE likes best does he end up looking as cool as he would like to.

Pete takes everyone's discussion about what he should wear to school. I think he did this to not make anyone feel sad he didn't choose what they suggested, but when he decides to be himself and dressed in what he likes he is more comfortable.

My 3 year old grand-daughter loves him and so do my kindergarteners. Tool cool for school was a funny story with a lesson in being yourself.

This is a great book for preschool children. Pete listens to everyone else and then decides to make his own decision. Great book!

My 3 year old loves everything Pete the Cat. I've purchased all of the books. I just wish there were videos for all of them.

I teach English as a Second Language at an international European school. Pete the Cat books are always a huge favorite - colorful, humorous illustrations, easy-to-understand text, and stories that can be followed easily without understanding every word - and this book continued the trend. This is the first 'reading' (as opposed to 'picture') book featuring Pete the Cat that I've used, and I was slightly apprehensive, but it did not disappoint! Pete puts on all the clothes that everyone else likes and ends up looking very silly (great illustrations!) Not until Pete decides to put on the things that HE likes best does he end up looking as cool as he would like to. This was great for teaching lessons about clothing and colors, as well as the word 'favorite.' Regardless of the language the children in your life speak, this book will be greatly enjoyed!
