School Library Journal - 07/01/2014 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 - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
