We have a few Peanuts lovers in our home who are so excited for The Peanuts Movie to come out. They’ve been watching the old Peanuts movies and our son has been reading Peanuts comics any chance he can get.
With all the Peanuts hype I knew it was time to put together a little Peanuts learning fun. And with Halloween approaching, what better book and movie to use than It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!
Do your kids love Pete the Cat? Ours too! We’ve checked out Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons from our library numerous times and so I decided to supplement our recent reading with a few related activities.
If you are looking for a themed-unit or mini-unit to work on with your preschooler or kindergartner “just for fun” then you’ll definitely want to consider doing a HAT theme. The kids and I had such a good time reading these hat books and I think my girls found a couple of new favorite books!

It is so enjoyable to snuggle up on the couch with your favorite little people and read books together isn’t it? That is one of my favorite things to do with my children because it’s a wonderful way to bond and connect with them as we allow the pages of a great story come alive.
