Pete the Cat Character Costume

Storybook Summer: Pete the Cat

Bring your rockin’ reader to meet the coolest cat around, Pete the Cat from Eric Litwin and James Dean’s Pete the Cat series! Listen to your favorite Pete the Cat books, make groovy headbands, and end each day with a Purr-fect jam session by playing instruments to show off your cool moves! What a chill way to kick off Story Book Summer! Stick around for a Goodbye Parade each day, starting at the Sesame Street steps 10 minutes before closing!

When children pretend, they’re using their imaginations to move beyond the bounds of reality. A stick can be a magic wand. A sock can be a puppet. A small child can be a superhero.
