    19. An enjoyable picture book focusing on many current environmental issues The absence of humanity in the story, although surprising considering in many novel humans are portrayed as nature s antagonist, allowed for Gravett s message to be carried through A great book to start conversations about the Environment in PSHEE with KS1.

Our whole family loved this book My husband and I loved the message of what happens when we get rid of forests and my kids just loved how silly it was that Pete kept cleaning everything up, especially every last leaf This is a book that I will definitely be using in my classroom and we will be reading it at home again

    21. Pete has a terrible grasp on ecology Fortunately, it backfires, but the sheer destruction he wreaked is completely glossed over by the narrative, as if to say you can entirely destroy a world and then just rebuild it the next day as you please Reinforces the ubiquitous and dangerous feeling that nature exists merely for one s pleasure.

    25. Pete the badger is neat and clean, but he takes it a few steps too far when he begins dismantling the forest I like the pacing and the ridiculous lengths that Pete goes in the name of cleanliness Such a fun read aloud for PreK 2 with pencil, watercolor, and wax crayon artwork.

    26. I gave it 3 stars mostly for the illustrations and the humor in them The story is cute, but the illustrations make the points First Line Deep in the forest lived a badger named Pete, who tidied and cleaned and kept everything neat.
