Spotlight: Put Me In the Story does Pete the Cat! And a giveaway, just for you!

I got my first taste of Put Me in the Story with their NatGeo books, which I had personalized for my preschooler, and I’ve been a fan ever since. They’re nicely made, and they’re a keepsake: they’re personalized with your child’s name and picture. The latest series to get a Put Me in the Story? None other than Pete the Cat.

PMITS_PeteTheCat_Facebook$29.99 hardcover

Pete’s a great character to get personalization treatment, because kids go berserk for this blue cat. He’s cool, laid back, and has legions of fans. Think I’m exaggerating? I’ve been a kids’ librarian at libraries in six states, and it is Beatlemania when it comes to Pete. You have a kid you need a book for? Check out Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses. Plus, I’ve got a giveaway right here, so why not enter and try your luck?

Here’s the scoop:

In Pete the Cat and His Magic Sunglasses, Pete’s having one of those days—the kind where nothing is going his way. But when Grumpy Toad lends Pete a pair of cool, blue, magic sunglasses, that gloomy, dreary day turns itself around!

This personalized book about learning to see the world in a whole new way features your child’s name and photo along with an encouraging dedication message from you. Your child plays a special part in the story—they are the one to let Grumpy Toad borrow the magic sunglasses in the first place!

As Pete the Cat travels through town, he meets friends that could use a little bit of magic. A hungry squirrel, a tipped-over turtle, and a lonely alligator all get a boost of positive vibes from the magic sunglasses. But what happens when those magic sunglasses break?

Teach your child to find the good in every day with the help of this rockin’ story. Any day can go from gloomy to groovy—all it takes is a little magic from within!
