That smooth-sailing feline Pete the Cat returns in this third picture-book devoted to his laid-back adventures, following upon Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes and Pete the Cat: Rocking In My School Shoes. Sporting his favorite shirt, the one with the four groovy buttons, Pete is going about his day, when one by one the buttons begin to pop off. Does Pete cry? Absolutely not! Instead he counts his (progressively fewer) buttons, and sings his song...

Like its predecessors, Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons features an entertaining sing-song narrative and fun, colorful illustrations. I liked the message, highlighted at the end of the book, that things don't matter - they come and go, the narrative tells us - but how we react to their loss is quite important. Recommended to all Pete the Cat fans, and to anyone looking for fun (although somewhat limited) counting books. ( )

Singer & musician Eric Litwin wrote this funny book about the groovy and hip Pete The Cat. It counts down from four as buttons pop off one by one. The illustrations are humorous and brightly colored. The buttons look like they are springing out at the reader. I can't wait to read more Pete The Cat books!

This book is good for young students who are learning to count. It is about Pete the Cat and his four groovy buttons. When he is out doing things his buttons keep popping off and he is never worried about it when his buttons pop off because he still has more. It is nice because it has the math equations. The book is good to show students that things come and go, but there is no need to cry. ( )

This is a fiction book about a cat that wears a sweater with 4 groovy buttons. Throughout the day, his buttons pop off but Pete never gets sad, all he does is sing his song. This is a good book to teach simple subtraction as well as repetition. ( )

I love these books so much, this one is about pete the cat with a button up shirt and throughout the story he keeps loosing his buttons but still signs his song.

I think that this is just a fun book for young children to sing along with.

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.
