Review:

Based on the popular children's books, the Hot Dots Jr. Pete the Cat sets are designed for children just starting their school career. Sold separately, the kits titled I Love Preschool! and Preschool Rocks! are suggested for ages 3-4 and the I Love Kindergarten!, and Kindergarten Rocks! sets are for ages 5-6. Packaging details which skills are covered in each set. In the Kindergarten series for example, phonics are covered in both levels 1 and 2, but sight and compound words are addressed in level 2 only. In short, level 2 builds on what is accomplished in level 1.

The activity books pose questions and offers multiple answers. "Which of theses has a long O sound?" offers a choice of illustrations that include a boat, a bar of soap … Young learners use the Pete the Cat pen to tap the encoded paper. A correct answer yields a green light and a brief musical reward. A wrong answer triggers a red light and sound effect.

Each set includes 200+ activity question/lessons on reading, math, science, social studies, and more, two spiral-bound activity card sets, a Pete the Cat® pen, reward stickers, and a completion certificate. The required 2 AAA batteries are not included.
