For parents with kids of school age, the name "Pete the Cat" should be a familiar one - a character created by author/illustrator James Dean, and the star of over 40 popular children’s books seen at Scholastic School Book Fairs and regularly requested by little ones. Now, Pete the Cat is starring in his first-ever musically-driven animated series, streaming now on Amazon Prime Video. Starring Jacob Tremblay, Elvis Costello, and Diana Krall, the series also features original music from Costello and Krall as they tell stories about exploring your world and trying new things, while being smart, accepting, and optimistic. To celebrate the launch, The Rock Father™ and Prime Video have teamed-up to give you a shot at winning a cool Pete the Cat Prize Pack from Scholastic that your kids are gonna love!

In life, we all have to overcome some big challenges at some point... and for many those battles start at birth. And not just for humans, but animals too. Last year, Fiona the Hippo became an internet sensation, a hippopotamus born prematurely at only 29 pounds. In theory, she wasn't expected to live - but she did, and her attitude captured the hearts of the masses in a story chronicled via YouTube and Facebook as the star of The Fiona Show. This summer, Fiona celebrated her first birthday, and along with that milestone comes a new children's book, appropriately titled Fiona the Hippo. From New York Times bestselling artist Richard Cowdrey of Bad Dog, Marley fame, the book is published by Zonderkidz in partnership with The Cincinnati Zoo, and now you can win a copy - complete with a Fiona plush and sippy cup - right here on The Rock Father™ Magazine!
