”There is something cool about every cat.”

Pete!!! :) Pete the Cat discovers just how cool Valentine’s Day is with a little help from his friends and his Mom. Our cool, blue hero sets out to spread the love around.

I will always love Pete’s cute, blue, furry ways, but this visit did not hold the usual bright, brilliant Pete magic for me. The colors, sweet simplicity, and sneakers were all in here, but the tone felt stale to me somehow. I usually want to read a Pete tale again and again, but I just

I miss the awesome songs and the better writing. Sigh. I know kids will love it because they love Pete. But me...not so much.
Lovely and well written picture book about Pete the Cat and his friend Callie planning to make cards for Valentine’s Day. Pete forgets a couple of people but he catches up. I read the read aloud book. The narration is just perfect. Love it.

Should read it a day ahead with the kiddos. Gives them some ideas on what they can write their friends. Cute Valentine story.

My 8 year old recently borrowed this book for our local library.

In this installment of Pete the Cat, Pete learns that Valentine's Day is cool. The story starts the day before Valentine's Day. Pete runs into his friend Callie. She asks him if he has finished his Valentine's card yet. Pete says he hasn't because Valentine's is not cool. Callie explains to him that Valentine's Day is the day that we tell people how special they are to use. Pete heads home, and thinks about what Callie told him. By

This was our first Pete the Cat book. Daddy's read them before but Oliver picked out this horribly out of season book (which due to its seasonal nature needs to be returned in one week instead of two, so now we have to *gasp* go back to the library). This was a cute little book that told the real meaning of Valentine's Day -- and to think of others you might not necessarily notice. I liked it a lot.

I know there is something wrong with me because I am just not a fan of Pete the cat. It’s hard to explain why. I guess I just want more for all the hype he gets. This title is just the same. Peter learns that making valentines is cool and then make a bunch for his class and people in the neighborhood.

Pete the Cat: Valentine's Day is Cool is a great book to use with younger readers. I enjoy how the book uses quotes to make up the story. I think it is a great book for parents to read aloud to their children and to talk about the true meaning behind the quotes.

As a teacher, I think it is a great book to have in a classroom library or to read aloud around Valentine's Day.

Kids really love Pete the Cat books. This one was really good. Pete the Cat thinks Valentine's Day isn't cool, but Callie his friend tells him it is. He makes Valentine's for all his friends because his mom tells him there's something cool about every cat! This is a fun book about Valentine's Day!

Simple Book about Valentine's Day. Helped my boys understand that they should appreciate all people that are in their lives. They can also simply appreciate someone by showing them what makes them unique.

I watched this as a read-along/audiobook on YouTube.

Pete isn't very into Valentine's day until his mother gives him so good advice that changes how he makes Valentine's cards for his friends. After that, he feels like everyone deserves a card.

Typical Pete the Cat book. A decent read for Valentine's day since Pete and Callie make Valentine's for everyone. He does forget to make one for his close friend Callie but learns that it's more important to spend time with the one you like/love the most.

The preschooler loved this one because of the extras - it came with a poster, stickers and valentines.
A cute story about a boy kitty named Pete and his friend that shows him the joy of celebrating Valentine's Day.

At first, Pete is all like, "Valentine's Day is stupid," but you won't believe the 180 he does two pages later. Truly, an inspiring tale.

I have to say I loved this because I loved the simple message that expressing your love or thanks can make a huge impact and basically costs you nothing.
