Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes

Pete The Cat: I Love My White Shoes - Eric Litwin, James Dean

Written by Eric Litwin

Illustrated by James Dean


Pete the Cat loves his brand new white shoes. As he goes out walking, however, he manages to step in several different piles or puddles that turn his white shoes different colors! Pete keeps his cool, though, and keeps singing his song no matter what color his shoes are.


This book would be great for a lesson on colors with kindergarten. Each time a new color is introduced, the illustrations show examples of things that could be that color (umbrella for blue, coffee for brown) and could easily spark a discussion about what else could be that color. This book could also be used to talk about appropriate emotional reactions to different situations.
