In last month’s post about Layla’s 3rd birthday, I mentioned this book was one of my favorite gifts she received. Since we read this every night, I thought it deserved a book review.
Pete the Cat, I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin follows the “kool cat” Pete as he strolls along in his new white shoes. But “Oh no!” Pete steps in a pile of blueberries, strawberries, and mud! Does he cry? “Goodness No!”. No matter what Pete encounters he keeps walking along and singing his song.
This interactive book is fun for both parents and kids! I love the question/response format and enjoy watching my kids laugh and shout out their answers. They actually stand the whole time I read this. I get a kick out of watching them sing and dance with Pete. The book also comes with a link to the Harper Collin’s website where you can listen to the author read the story and download the song and other Pete the Cat activities. The tune “I Love My White Shoes” is pretty catchy and probably what I enjoy most when reading this to the kids.
