Pete the Cat and the Bad Banana Reviews

    Henry loves bananas, and I borrowed this book for him. It's a cute story about Pete the Cat loving bananas then found a yucky brown over-ripened banana and he didn't want to eat anything afterwards when he got sick. Eventually he overcame his fear and started to eat bananas again. It's an okay book and kinda teaching children that just because you got sick on a bad food once doesn't mean you will always get sick when you eat a certain food. Henry seemed to like it.

    Bananas are delicious, and high in potassium. So, you definitely should eat them. That having been said, I disliked how this story handled overripe bananas. We eat alot of them around here. As for the bad spots, use a table knife to cut them off. Not dangerous at all. I was glad that Pete did eventually go back to eating bananas again.As for pickles, I would definitely eat them at breakfast time.Have this story read to you, like I did!

    Pete the Cat books are cute, but this one didn't really do it for me. I'm glad he was willing to try different foods, but nothing else was satisfying so he ate someone else's banana and won the race... Would his friend have won if he ate the banana instead of letting Pete have it? I'm pretty sure I'm just grumpy and over analysing what is, for all intents and purposes, a cute little book about a cat...

    Pete the Cat loves bananas! He eats them for breakfast and often for other meals through the day; then one day he eats a rotten banana and declares he will never eat bananas again! Pete's mom tries to help by making all his favorite banana meals, but Pete is sure, no more bananas! Instead he tries some other foods, several of which he likes, but he misses his bananas. Does he dare take a chance on bananas again? So, don't know that Pete's mom's solution was a good idea, but was proud of Pete for trying out new foods. Although, as someone who likes their bananas on the slightly brown and mushy side, sad that Pete doesn't share my tastes!No content issues.

    This was a strange little book. It started out as a cute little story about not giving up on a particular type of food just because you tried it once and didn't like it. However, then about midway through readers seemed to be dropped into another story altogether. It's a little surreal, but I think the book does accomplish its goal in introducing kids to new words and independent reading with a fun and popular character.Veg*n parents note: In addition to bananas, Pete also eats a can of fish and a hot dog.

    Pete the Cat! He runs into a problem that many humans do too- he eats a bad banana!My child is learning to read and we read this together- it is labeled a "My First Reading" book and out of some that we have read together, this one is lengthier in pages and therefore it was more of a challenge. However, I have learned that there are more Pete stories and will be reading those with my son. Pete's non-committal face is part of the fun reading the books. (Adult humor is always a plus when mixed with kid's business.) If your child is learning to read this is a good book.

    Boring. I wanted to put aside my negative feelings for all the Pete books exept for Shoes and Buttons and order multiple copies of this for a special project because I know kids love Pete the Cat. But I just couldn't do it because it was so boring and I chose to order other more interesting books.

    It was a banner day in SMART this week, when my 3rd grade reader, who struggles with phonics and confidence, read to me both of the books he picked. Everybody loves Pete the Cat; and to think I'd never heard of him before SMART.

    A great lesson in trying things again after a bad experience.

    I haven't liked all of the Pete books, but this one was fun. We've all had times when we "lose" our taste for our favorite food.

    I also don't like to eat mushy bananas, so I really related to this story.

    I kind of liked where this one was going. Pete the Cat loves bananas, but is turned off his favorite fruit after eating an overripe banana and suffering a stomachache. The text reads like a fairytale from this point as Pete's mom tries to offer Pete all sorts of foods that contain bananas and Pete tries to find another favorite fruit by choosing foods that share similarities with bananas.When it comes time to power up before a big race, it seems bananas are just the right kind of fuel for Pete. The transition from trying new foods to needing bananas for the big race wasn't as smooth as I was expecting, but I'm happy to say I kinda liked this Pete the Cat story.PreK-2.

    This is a very cute Pete the Cat book. In this story, Pete loves bananas, but when Pete eats a bad banana he can no longer eat bananas. He tries all types of other foods until he's full, but none of them are as good as a banana. He doesn't know if he could ever eat another banana again.This book was funny, and is a really appropriate first reader book. I would have it in a K-2 grade classroom. There is lots of description words and repetition, so the book is easy to read. There's also a wide variety of sentence types, so that is very proactive for a early reader.

    Picky eaters will be inspired by Pete's bravery as he tries different fruits and vegetables in a quest to find a new favorite food to replace the bad banana! It his typical good humor, Pete sinks his teeth into a lemon, pickles, oranges and more, but none can live up to his love of banana's. With time, Pete is able to see that one bad banana doesn't have to spoil the bunch, or his love for the fruit.

    We are huge fans of Pete the Cat from his Four Groovy Buttons book. The bad banana is an excellent early reader for kids who already love this character. Full of simple sight words and repetitive sentence structures that helps young readers predict the next word and propels them through the book independently. Alice was working through it on the third try! And really looking at the words.

    Pete ate a bad banana. I thought my toddler would learn that sometimes the food might not always taste good and she would try some foods again... we wound up not eating bananas for a week.Turns out my child likes bananas as much as Pete does and we still read this book frequently and are eating bananas again.

    Poor Pete has a favorite food that didn't agree with him one day. We have all had times when we ate something we really love to only have some sort of issue. What can you do? Do you turn clear away from that food, do you give it a second chance, or find a new favorite. See what Pete goes through as he learns about his favorite food.

    Well a bad banana could ruin your day too. But Pete's mom doesn't give up and keeps trying to make her son happy. It's funny and cute what this mother does to try to make her son happy. I love that the mother is a strong figure in this book as a lot of the books she comes in for a moment and then is gone again. But this one she is there again helping Pete as he struggles with something.

    As an easy leveled reader this book is okay but the magic of Pete the Cat is gone. While I like the comparisons Pete makes for banana characteristics with other foods, I am left with some questions for the narrative. Why would Pete eat the whole yucky banana if the first bite is bad? Why is there all of a sudden a big race? Young fans of Pete might notice these but probably won't care.

    A cute little book that is perfect for the child in your family who isn't really reading yet. This tells what happens when Pete the Cat eats a banana that has gone bad. It is a tale simply but effectively told, and the large pictures give the child something to look at while you are reading it to them. All in all a nice book

    I enjoy Pete that Cat, but I didn't like the focus on bad bananas. My son used to eat bananas in many states of ripeness, but after reading the book, he started turning soft bananas away. I would steer clear of this book if your child enjoys bananas.

    I have used this book in my tutoring sessions and both myself and the child I'm tutoring love it! We have read it multiple times and always can't wait to find out if Pete will get over his aversion to bananas! :)

    Pete the Cat who loves bananas just encountered a bad experience from eating his most recent favorite fruit. The story left us wondering if Pete the Cat will ever eat his favorite fruit again. The kids enjoyed the short & sweet tale during baby storytime.

    Pete the cat loves his bananas just so. On the day his banana doesn't settle well, he decides to try some new things.My daughter loves this wacky book. It's definitely how she feels about her favorite foods and we end up talking about how she might handle a food making her belly rumble.

    Usually Pete the Cat books are at least fun to read, but this one was just all over the place. Berry enjoyed it though; it's the first book she's carried to me repeatedly to have me read it again!

    Pete the Cat helps children (and himself) realize that although he gets ahold of a bad banana one time that doesn't mean that all bananas all the time are going to be bad. So he doesn't have to be afraid to eat them again.
