Pete the Cat and More Like That! (Books With a Song in the Story) day 20 of 30: Exploring the Free Resources

Books like Pete the Cat, invite children to sing a song that is repeated several times throughout the story. Since the song punctuates something that happens, it usually lends itself to a little attitude! Children gain confidence singing the same song, like they're in on a little joke- and it builds listening skills since you have to.. well, listen!  These are also great for readers who are more comfortable reading with a little singing, as opposed to the other way around. So it has the added benefit of building confidence in the reader- even and adult!

If your kids like reading one of these over and over, try out a different "voice" every time your read it (for extra silliness)!
