Sometimes you read a book at just the right time and it speaks to you. Or maybe the author speaks to you and befriends you through the story unintentionally - it's hard to explain but somehow Nina George and Jean Perdu did just that for me through The Little Paris Bookshop - and somehow this book fell into my world just when I needed it most. #newfriends #LiteraryApothecary #booked2020 #FebruaryFeels #NinaGeorge

We all know you can never have enough books...or apparently enough pets as we‘ve added a kitten to our zoo! No agreed upon name yet for this ball of fluff so we‘ve just been calling him “floof.” Our other cats have short fur so the ragamuffin appearance of this guy‘s slightly longer coat is entertaining us! Just started the book, which he thought might make a great chew toy. #kittensoflitsy #petsoflitsy #newfriends #floof

Pete the Cat and the New Guy | James Dean, Kimberly Dean

Loved this RF by Kimberly and James Dean that promotes friendship and encourages individuals to pursue their passion. This book is about a cat named Pete and his encounter with a new individual that moves into his neighborhood. After he discovers who the individual is, he helps his new friend try to discover a skill that he is good at. It is a journey which involves friendship, encouragement, and love.

fquadri This book is very good for a RA as it allows students to think while they read the book by answering questions that the teacher might pose, make predictions based on the illustrations, and make connections from the text.

After the read aloud, students can talk amongst themselves and discuss the book.
fquadri This means that EL strategy 2 can be incorporated in this lesson plan. UDL strategy 3.3 (guide information processing and visualization) can be used because during the read aloud, students will be using visuals like the illustrations in the book to come up with conclusions. 8mo
fquadri This website gives information on how to conduct a read aloud with this book and gives other information such as activities and lesson plans that can be used using this book.
DrSpalding Yes to reading aloud and even singing aloud Pete the cat books however they are not considered realistic fiction. Why not? Look at the front cover of your book… We have a blue cat riding a skateboard. Is that realistic? What genre do you think it is now? 7mo

“Pete said, don‘t be sad, don‘t be blue. There is something everyone can do!”
I was helping a student read this today, and at the end he threw his head back and said, “I wish Pete the Cat was MY best friend! He would be nice to me EVERY day....not like Savannah.” These kids slay me 😄
