Put Me In The Story “Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses”

We love to read at our house.  We have too many, I mean, a lot of books on our shelves and I am often tripping over piles of books beside my kids’ beds.  My six year old is a Pete the Cat fan.  I think Pete is pretty cool too due to his laid back attitude and optimism.

I surprised my son with his very own personalised Pete the Cat book from Put Me in the Story.  Introducing “Pete the Cat and Jasper’s Magic Sunglasses” by Kimberly and James Dean.  Jasper (my son) was quite smitten with the fact that his photo is sprinkled throughout the book and his name is used often in the story. 

Pete the Cat gets some groovy magical sunglasses from Jasper. The sunglasses help many gloomy characters in the book to cheer up.  At the end the magical sunglasses accidentally get broken and Pete fears he is doomed to be in a bad mood without them.  Pete then learns from Wise Old Owl that it isn’t the sunglasses that create happiness but your attitude toward the day; to make sure you look for the good in every day. 😉  All the characters then realize that they can be cheerful and happy without the use of magical sunglasses. The story ends with everyone thankful and happy for their day.  I like that the book is teaching my children that even though negative things may happen it’s your attitude toward them that should affect how you feel about it.

As a parent I love that my child now has a keepsake that will be special for years to come.  You have the option of adding a dedication at the beginning of the book.  This is your chance to shower your child with compliments and let them know how much they mean to you. 🙂
