Pete's a Pizza Book Review

Texts and Tunes: Pete's a Pizza

As leaves fall off the trees, there are less opportunities to go outside and let off steam. Add kids with cabin fever to the mix and the whole house will start to go batty. We always encourage reading but
Pete's a Pizza ($12) is especially useful on a dank day.

The book is a diamond in the rough. One of my former first-grade students gave me this board book as it was her "very favorite book ever!" and it quickly became one of my own.

Pete's plans to play football with pals are wrecked by the rain, leaving him bored at home. Until Pete's clever and funny father tells him it's time to make a pizza. So they make one, but not out of dough and tomato sauce. The family creates one with objects from around the house. This cheers Pete up and becomes a bonding experience for his whole family.

After you read the book to your tot, you can play along by making a pizza out of your kiddo, too.

I'm sorry but when do kids get "cabin fever" nowadays? Don't Moms have to pry them off their X-box and Wii so they can go out and enjoy the outdoors?
