"Just Picked" is a feature here at A Life Bound By Books. This is a place where I'll be spotlighting new (and old) children's book or picture books for parents and new readers. It's a place to talk about books for a younger group and to try to help create a new generation of readers.

Title: Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes
Author: Eric Litwin
Illustrator: James Dean
Publisher: HarperCollins, 40 Pages (March 2nd, 2010)
Age Range: 4 and up
From: the Publisher
Add to: Goodreads

Synopsis: Pete the Cat goes walking down the street wearing his brand-new white shoes. Along the way, his shoes change from white to red to blue to brown to WET as he steps in piles of strawberries, blueberries, and other big messes. Full color.

Review: 4 Stars - Pete the Cat is a laid back story sharing with kids that no matter what might happen along the way that things are still okay. 

With a song to follow along with while reading, Pete shows kids that it’s okay when things change, or accidents happen or even if you step into a huge, giant pile of strawberries in your brand new white shoes. I loved the message that this fun story tells and how laid back and mellow the cat is.

Being a book that we’ve given away as a gift more than I can remember, I can honestly say that here in this house, we love this book. It’s another welcomed addition to the kids’ bookshelves and one that I know will be read over and over again. Perfect for younger kids who love to sing.

  1. I teach first grade and my students are OBSESSED with this book! I have it with the cd so they can listen to it. We then checked out the next one with his school shoes and I had to look up the track online so they could listen to that one.

    Such a great pick!

  2. I don't know why but Pete the Cat isn't one of my favourite books. It just doesn't do anything for me.

My Ratings

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down. If you would like me to review a book, please contact me or view my Contact Information and Review Policy for further details.

5 Stars - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
