Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes: 01/27/12

My daughter and I have read Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin in two forms: picture book and audio. Both versions are a cute story about a tuxedo cat with new white shoes rolling with the punches when he steps in different messy things.

The book also teaches some colors, specifically red, blue and brown. Pete the cat ends up stepping in strawberries, blueberries and mud. He's got to be the calmest cat ever because he doesn't get upset. He just keeps on singing his song.

And that song, since I'm not all that musically inclined, is why I prefer the audio book. Really, I guess, it's more of a read along CD but we've put the CD in the car and the book's on the shelf at home. The song is more than catchy; it's an ear worm. And it makes my daughter laugh. As Pete would say, "It's all good."

Five stars.
