Day 30: Groovin' with Pete the Cat

Pete the Cat is our newest family crush.  The boys are thoroughly in love -- both with Pete and his music.

I love the simplicity of the artwork, as well as the story.  It's full of repetition and song, and child participation.  A fail-proof combination.

The boys even dragged out their guitars this afternoon.  They had a Pete the Cat jam session.  Eric Litwin would be proud.

Here's the jist of storyline:  Pete the Cat loves his new white shoes so much, that he can't help singing about them.  As he walks along, singing his song, his shoes get a little dirty and don't remain white.

But does Pete cry?  Goodness, no!
(The kids love this part)

Pete just goes with the flow.  Whatever life throws at him, it's all good.

You've gotta hear Eric Litwin do it, to get the full groovy, mellow effect:

You can also download the song and audio story for free from Harper Collins {here}.

Thank you so much for joining me here all month!  Don't forget to come back tomorrow, because I'm going to announce a book GIVEAWAY that you won't want to miss!
