Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kids could read this every day I personally don't quite understand exactly why this is so popular with kids but they always love it. I bring it with me when I supply teach primary classes, it's always a knock out of the park. Check out @ReadWithRiver for more great book reviews on Instagram!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this book! This is my favourite Pete the Cat book. I'm not sure if it was the original book. I understand there are dozens of them now and can't comment on them except to say that maybe the theme is overdone. BUT this is a great book. This is a book that I would buy for any child, and certainly have for all my grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Ours came with a CD and the kids can sing along with the story.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So much fun! My daughter was walking around saying "goodness no!" for the longest time, and her teacher told me it was from this book. I finally had a chance to read it, and my kids LOVED it! The singing is fun, the positive attitude of Pete is great, and my kids walked around singing "i love my (blank)" afterwards. Great book. Highly recommend!
