“School is awesome! Doing something new is Awesome!” If your kids are about to go to new school and yet a bit nervous about it, this book would help kids to get motivated and there is nothing to be afraid, because all the new things are not the anxiety but excitement! This is “Pete the Cat” book series I have reviewed earlier but this time Pete the cat (who holds electric guitar) is on the adventure of going to new school to experience all the new things. Sound Rock-n-Roll already, huh? 😊 Let’s check out the storyline then.
- It’s Pete first day at school and he was so excited and singing song “My First Day at School♪ How awesome it is♪ x3”
- Pete is in the class room and Teacher asked students “where in the school can we find all the books?” “LIBRARY!” Pete’s first library experience. Is Pete nervous about it?? Nope! Pete’s found his favorite book and sings “ Library at School♪ How awesome it is♪ x3”
- After reading, it is lunch time. What time is it? School Lunch time! Is he nervous about having school lunch with friends? Nope! Pete sings with friends “ School lunch♪ How awesome it is♪ x3”
- Pete is playing in the ground with slide and swing. Yes it is his first Break time between the class! Is he nervous about it? Nope! Pete plays with friends and sings “ Break time♪ How awesome it is♪ x3”
- Pete ended up singing all day about how awesome Music Class, Art Class, Math Class are!
- Pete is on the school bus going home. His mom came to pick him up and asked “How was school?” Pete answered in singing “ “ My First Day at School♪ How awesome it is♪ x3”
- Here is how Pete thinks. “Encountering something new is awesome thing.”- (on 2nd day at school, Pete is about to enter the class room, saying “Today is also Awesome!”
“Encountering something new is awesome thing.” This pretty much summarizes the message of this book. This is great message to not only kids but all the adults out there. It is always the case that we tend to avoid or be afraid of something we don’t know nor have not done before. Pete in this book tells different perspective that stepping into new world requires courage but it sure is a fun experience and you will most likely like it. Quite good inspirational book for kids! (By the way, just like last time, it has music score at the end and once you know it, you can sing along with Pete while reading books)
