In my opinion, the previous Pete the Cat books were popular with young children probably for their simplicity, repetitive patterns, surprise endings, up-beat messages, and fun illustrations. This Pete the Cat book is different, but equally good.
He just has the reindeer pull his VW mini-bus! My students loved the story and asked to hear it more than once. However, that may have been for a paperback copy. I decided to target the numbers on it, since those are the numbers that we are focusing on in my Kindergarten classroom at the moment. One of my favorite things to do with emergent readers is teach them to read little printable books that they can take home and proudly read to their parents.
Parents are often amazed to tell me how their child could read the entire thing! And that always makes the effort seem worthwhile. This is what the easy reader books look like, along with the index card that I made to go with the word finding activity. Many of the children can read most, if not all, of the words in the little books that I make for them right from the start. But to help those that cannot, I always have the children search for certain sight words on each page and highlight or color them with crayons or highlighting markers.
I find that this forces the children to notice more of the words in the text, and think about what they are really seeing on the page. Then they try to read the little book back to me while attempting to track point to the words correctly as they go along. I usually find that after they have colored the words that they know on the pages, they are far more likely to be able to track point to the words one by one correctly while they read. They may actually find them in real books and be able to read them and use them in real life!
In other words, after activities like this, some children begin to see themselves as readers. To do this activity, simply choose a few words in the printable easy reader that you want your students to work on, and write them on an index card with a black marker.

Then take a crayon and color each of the words lightly with a crayon or a highlighter. Scatter these index cards on the table where your students will be working. Print out the easy reader book and colate it for your students in the right order.
