“A Pet for Pete” by James Dean and Paper Plate Craft

Pete the Cat can’t wait to get a new pet! He gets a goldfish he names Goldie. Pete paints a cool painting of Goldie and now everyone wants a piece of it! But Pete doesn’t have enough time to make one for everyone. Will Pete find a way to have fun painting Goldie and have time to finish his homework?

A Pet for Pete” is a My First I Can Read Book, which means it’s perfect for shared reading with a child.

Read “A Pet for Pete” and then help your Nanny Kids make Goldie out of orange paper and paper plates.
