Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes
Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by James Dean, illustrated by Eric Litwin
This is such a fun little book. In it, a cat wearing white shoes walks through things that change the color of his shoes, but despite it all, he's cool and nothing bothers him. If you read this book, you really have to download the audio file from the Harper Collins website and listen to it that way (or you can download it without reading the book, but you are really missing some great illustrations if you do). What a fun way to introduce colors and an easy going, accept what may attitude. I highly recommend this book, but you have to sing Pete's song if you read it! There are more Pete the Cat books, and I look forward to reading the rest. A highly recommended picture book for young readers.
This review is based on a library copy.
Until next time, bon voyage and happy reading!
