K-Gr 2 Always a clotheshorse, Pete begins this easy-to-read story by asking, "What should I wear?" He is trying to look cool for school. Obviously, everyone he queries has a different opinion about his attire, and he takes all of their advice and fashion suggestions. Wearing different colored shirts, shorts with fish on them, cowboy boots, a striped tie, and a baseball cap, he looks silly, feels hot--and goes home. He dons his favorite clothes and "feels just right," concluding, "If you want to be cool, /just be you!" One or two simple sentences per page and large illustrations set against uncluttered white backgrounds make this suitable for the very youngest readers.--Ellie Lease, Harford County Public Library, MD
