HarperCollins. (My First I Can Read). Mar. 2023. 32p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9780062974327; pap. $4.99. ISBN 9780062974310.
K-Gr 2–Pete the Kitty loves art class. But when his teacher takes them outside for a special nature art assignment, he’s unsure he can make art in this way. As he and his friends collect leaves, sticks, and other outdoor elements and he sees his classmate’s creations, Pete comes up with a great idea for his own art project. One to three sentences per page, with a fair amount of repetitive text, make this title appropriate for those who are becoming more independent readers or older readers who need practice with fluency. It would also be a good title to be read aloud when larger format “Pete” picture books are not available. It’s a simple yet cohesive story with the vibrant and appealing illustrations readers have come to expect from the franchise.
VERDICT A recommended purchase for all early reader collections.
