Come on now!! Do you think that Pete the Cat could really get cranky? Of course not! And no cranky acting is the most important lesson that Pete offers to readers in the bestselling children’s book… I Love My White Shoes! When Pete keeps getting his new shoes dirty, he put his best paw forward in a good way…
“But no matter what color his shoes are, Pete keeps movin’ and groovin’ and singing his song…because it’s all good!”
Pete has brand new white shoes that he is very proud to wear. He starts walking down the street, but has so many problems. The problems are really his own fault. The problems cause his shoes to keep changing colors. He steps into one gigantic mess after another.
When he steps in strawberries…red shoes! When he steps in blueberries…blue shoes…and so on! Pete’s shoes are a disaster, but no matter what…Pete keeps movin’ and groovin’. Even when his shoes are all wet, Pete is still happy…because it is all good! How many of us can think that way?
I guarantee if I step in even one gigantic mess when I wear my new shoes tomorrow…I may not think that everything is all good! CRANKY!!! Hmmm…an attitude change might be needed on my part!!
Listen to I Love My White Shoes…
When I first read this book to my Kindergarten class a few years ago, they immediately wanted to hear it again and again. We did Pete the Cat projects so often that I started dreaming about Pete at night. I dreamed that he was on top of our roof…no kidding! Then the librarian showed my class the video and the excitement really escalated!
Pete the Cat was the first in an entire series of books about this ultra happy cat character! One of the newest books in the Pete the Cat series…
Pete the Cat and the Cool Cat Boogie!!!
Guess what! Pete is still not cranky in this new book…sure to be a bestseller!!
