Meeting Mr. Eric and James Dean!!

After reading, re-reading, painting, singing, drawing, watching,  and loving all things Pete the Cat this week, I was THRILLED about the opportunity to meet the author (Eric Litwin) and illustrator (James Dean) of these fun books Friday night!!

I loved being able to share this fun night with my children, Scott and Madilynn, and with many of my kindergarten students. 
It was such a treat to watch their eyes light up as they read and sang along.  

Here are some of my favorite shots of the night:

a book dedicated to my growing readers!!

*I forgot to mention how much the children LOVED reading & coloring Shannon Martin's Pete Loves School book. One of my kindergarten friends, Sofia, brought her book in for the author and illustrator to sign!

  1. Ahh! I am so jealous!!! Wish I would have known they were in town. Glad it was a great evening!

  2. I was trying to print a copy of this book and it directs me to some website that wants my credit card info. Is this the only way to get this book?
