Marvelous Monday

Pete the Cat: Old MacDonald Had a Farm by James Dean is an adorable Old MacDonald with Pete the Cat flair.  I love Pete the Cat with his unconditional, accepting ways. No wonder he wanted the joy of singing and playing with farm animals.  
The artist used pen and ink with watercolor and acrylic paint, on 300 lb hot press paper to create the illustrations for this book. I love the cats on the farm, they're Siamese and the turtle that comes along for the ride.
Pete the Cat is even groovier with a bunch of friendly, farm animals.  It makes me want to learn how to play Old MacDonald on my ukelele for Storytime.  This is a great addition to a farm unit for preschoolers.
