Pete is catchy, and explains simple concepts of subtraction.

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin (2012) and its song version tells a simple subtraction problem in typical, laid-back Pete the Cat way. Adorable and catchy, this book will have kids and grown-ups counting down Pete's buttons. The story has the added bonus of modeling perspective when things don't go one's way. I'm sure many parents have made use of the "buttons come and buttons go" line to help kids cope with disappointment.

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons - Eric Litwin, James Dean

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons can be used to maximize teaching time by utilizing cross-curricular activities in this reading. This is a great book for students beginning their exploration with subtraction or addition. While building literacy experience, it also illustrates the subtraction process with use of vivid colors and a silly, familiar cat. It includes a song for students that are musically-inclined. The ending provides the surprising bonus of a valuable moral for students to consider, write about, and discuss. ( )

"Pete the Cat" has become a favorite of my little sister (who is three). I bought her first Pete book and my dad has hunted every other one down since! This story is about Pete (a cat) who has 4 groovy buttons on his shirt. One by one, they pop off. Instead of throwing a fit though, Pete rocks his new style each time a button is lost.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0062110586, Hardcover)

Pete the Cat is wearing his favorite shirt—the one with the four totally groovy buttons. But when one falls off, does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He just keeps on singing his song—after all, what could be groovier than three groovy buttons? Count down with Pete in this rocking new story from the creators of the bestselling Pete the Cat books.

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:12:35 -0400)

Pete the cat loves the buttons on his shirt so much that he makes up a song about them, and even as the buttons pop off, one by one, he still finds a reason to sing.
