    Pete the Cat decided to throw the perfect pizza party. He invites all his friends, and the fun is about to begin when suddenly they realize that each one's idea of a perfect pizza may be different than the others. Oh Pete the Cat... I'm honestly shocked my daughter loves these books so much. The art is not the finest and is rather simplistic, the authors use words/phrases like "groovy" and "out of sight" which she doesn't really hear except, well, in Pete the Cat books, but she just delights in a Pete the Cat decided to throw the perfect pizza party.

It's a cute book. If you're trying to read it at a fairly quick pace, I suggest reading it a few times to get a rhythm to it before trying it aloud. It's repetitive, but the amount of alliteration you'll encounter by the last couple of pages is rather impressive. My daughter finds this one funny, and loves the endpapers which show a bunch of... interesting alternate pizza choices including smelly socks. While it may not be the finest of the Pete books, it does make for a fun read and one apparently required any time we decide to eat pizza. 3/5 stars

    Pete the Cat returns in this eleventh full-sized picture-book devoted to his adventures, this time inviting all of his friends over for a pizza party. Our feline hero has definite ideas about what makes the perfect pizza - cheese and pepperoni, in his case - but each of his friends has their own favorite topping. Can Pete keep his cool, when each new idea is mentioned...?

Can Pete keep his cool, when each new idea is mentioned...? Although not the best of the Pete the Cat picture-books (I tend to prefer the early ones, written by Eric Litwin), Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party is engaging enough, and is sure to appeal to fans of this cool cat. I appreciated the message about learning to adapt, when our friends have their own ideas about the perfect snack (or activity, or anything else), and the artwork is as bright and colorful as ever. Unlike some of the more recent holiday-themed Pete the Cat books (which are smaller than these regular picture-books), this one didn't feel as much like coattail-riding. Recommended to fans of Pete the Cat.

    Pete the Cat hosts a pizza party. Pete the Cat has a pizza party, and he and his friends disagree about what toppings make the perfect pizza. The result is a pepperoni, pretzel, pistachio, pickle, popcorn, papaya pizza. The moral looks like it will be too many chefs spoil the soup, but instead it is "the perfect pizza is a pizza shared with friends". The endpapers show even wackier pizza toppings such as watermelon, cupcakes, and smelly socks. Pete the Cat hosts a pizza party.

    This is a cute story about Pete making pizza and combining it with a party. He starts with a basic pepperoni pizza and his friends want to add some unusual toppings. Kids will enjoy it. Colorful illustrations make this one lots of fun. Highly recommended for Grades K-2.

    Just like all the more recent PtC books, it's decent but not outstanding. Just like all the more recent PtC books, it's decent but not outstanding.

    Cute Pete story with all the friends adding their favorite toppings to try something new. Envisioning a lesson with students creating their own pizza with same initial consonant toppings!

    I loved this book but of course, I love pizza! I think that my favorite part of the book was the different types of pizza on the end pages!

    Just because your friends eat weird things doesn't mean you shouldn't try it. You just might like it. Just because your friends eat weird things doesn't mean you shouldn't try it. You just might like it.

    I'm using this for a music storytime today, but it could fit in to lots of themes - food, friendship, trying new things, the letter P.

    'Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party' by Kimberly & James Dean is a cute story about friendship and learning to appreciate different foods. While Pete is content with pepperoni, his friends are interested in trying pretzels, papaya, pickles, and more on their pizza. Despite their questioning of the options presented to them, all of the friends open themselves up to the possibilities that the variety of toppings brings. With the way that kids are often reluctant to try new foods, this book h 'Pete the Cat and the Perfect Pizza Party' by Kimberly & James Dean is a cute story about friendship and learning to appreciate different foods.

Despite their questioning of the options presented to them, all of the friends open themselves up to the possibilities that the variety of toppings brings. With the way that kids are often reluctant to try new foods, this book helps to show that trying new things is not necessarily going to be bad, and you may just surprise yourself and find out you like something you never thought you would. Other fun aspects of the book include alliteration in the repetition of the letter “P” since all of the toppings begin with that letter, and the fun activities the characters get to do as they spend time at the pizza party. The illustrations do a very nice job of bringing the story to life for readers. Another nice addition to a picture book bookshelf, especially if one likes the 'Pete the Cat' series of books.

    Pete the Cat hosts a pizza party for him and all his friends. Each friend decides to add an ingredient to the pizza, most of which are uncommon toppings, like pretzels or papaya. With each new ingredient, the pizza has become more and more abstract, but in the end all the friends care about is sharing the pizza, together. This story emphasizes the importance of friendship.

At first, Pete the Cat did not want to ruin his perfect pizza, but his love for his friends was greater than his selfish desires thus demonstrating to the reader that everything is better when it is shared with friends. This book made me think of all the sacrifices my friends have made for me and appreciate the community I have built around me. Connecting this to my own teaching, I want my students to feel that they are supported by their community of peers when they walk into my classroom. By reading this book with students early on in the year, it sets the tone for how our classroom should operate, and more importantly, how we treat one another. As a class, we can use this book to discuss the simple ways students show their friends they appreciate them, even if it is as simple as choosing a pizza topping.

    This book is a hit with both mama and the kiddos. I mean who doesn't love 1) Pete the Cat and 2) pizza? I love Pete the Cat books as a rule. The illustrations are always bright and colorful.

    4/5/2020 ~ It's hard to argue with an entire school's worth of primary-aged children. Pete the Cat flies off the shelves! In this volume, the alliteration and rhyme make it a joy to read aloud. There's enough repetition that young listeners will be quickly chiming in. Finally, the illustrations give enough support for young readers to figure out what the longer words might be. A book to reinforce a love of reading. 4/5/2020 ~ It's hard to argue with an entire school's worth of primary-aged children. Pete the Cat flies off the shelves!

    Pete the Cat plans his Perfect Pizza Party inviting all his friends, but everyone has a different favorite topping they want on the pizza. They all agree that news ideas can be groovy, of course, so the pizza ends up with a variety of toppings... all beginning with the letter P. Pepperoni, pretzels, pistachios, popcorn, pickles, & papaya. Yum! Teaching points: word patterns, OG-letter P, cooperation Location: LES library, NC Kids Digital Library (ebook & audio)

    My Pre-K class LOVED this, with all of the "P" words and silly toppings (and compromise and sharing!) But what they loved best were the endpapers - they were rolling on the floor at the idea of a dirty sock pizza. We must have spent ten minutes studying the drawings. You just never know what will get them!! My Pre-K class LOVED this, with all of the "P" words and silly toppings (and compromise and sharing!)

    Pete the Cat loves pizza, and parties, so he decides to throw a pizza party, and invite all of his friends. Everyone had a different idea and taste of what topping should be on the pizza, but in the end with every topping that was suggested on the pizza, it made for a perfect pizza party, but that wasn't the best part.

    A new readaloud to add to my repertoire. Although it was a struggle to get one of the Ks to answer my question: "What do you notice about the words in the title?" Answer: Pizza. Me: "Well, yes, there is pizza, but what do you notice about Pete, perfect, pizza, party?" Answer: Pete. Me: "Think more about the sounds." Answer: Pete is making pizza.

    I've never been a huge Pete the Cat fan, and I've been subjected to this one perhaps a few too many times by my 3 year year old. I like the message about trying new things and how Pete and friends are shown as "puzzled" rather than grossed out by new food ideas. But the overall repetitive nature of the story drags on. I also just don't like the illustrations. I've never been a huge Pete the Cat fan, and I've been subjected to this one perhaps a few too many times by my 3 year year old.

    This is cute, bright, and would be excellent for learning the "P" sound since all the many toppings start with "P." These books are so popular and so wonderful to read out loud. The repetition, alliteration, and colors make it a fun book to read to others-- or just by yourself!

    My good friend Pete! This one didn't disappoint. Pete's friends keep suggesting weird toppings for his pizza (all that begin with the letter "P"). Lots of repeatable lines that would be easy to get kids involved in. My good friend Pete! This one didn't disappoint.
