Here’s what I love about Pete With No Pants:
· Pete is an elephant. Pete does not want to wear pants.
· Pete uses his imagination to become a boulder and a squirrel, because they’re gray and they don’t wear pants.
· Pete’s mom is cool, although she wears hats and dresses and–I’m sorry to say this–old lady pajamas.
This is a sweet book, with a lot to look at. I don’t think I could pull off a read-aloud with it – the details are too small to really share well with a group. But it’s funny and cute and ends with a rainbow, even if I secretly wish Pete’s mom was wearing yoga pants and a ball cap.
