Why Did I Choose It? James Dean is one of the participating illustrators in this year's PiBoIdMo and the book was therefor included in our last big pile of books my four year old son and I checked out of the library! I had heard about Pete the Cat, but had never actually read any of the series of picture books. My son absolutely loves it!
A Bit From The Inside Cover: Pete the Cat is wearing his favorite shirt - the one with the four totally groovy buttons. But when one falls off, does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He just keeps on singing his song- after all, what could be groovier than three groovy buttons?
My Review: This book does an amazing job teaching kids to handle a difficult situation without getting upset and realize that things do come and things do go - but do we need to cry? Goodness, no! We can keep on enjoying the things we do have! This book offers a great way to handle emotions, a funny groovy character, a song to sing and a superb introduction to subtraction skills to boot! I highly recommend it - in fact- I've included it as the prize for my Picture Book Month Giveaway!
