Pete the cat is a story about a cat who goes various places and looses a button in the process. He doesn't mind loosing his bottons because he still has some left. However at the end, he has no bottons left and he's still okay with it because he has his belly botton left.

I love Pete the Cat and so do my students. I love how this book introduces early math concepts to kids. Teaching them how to make math sentences within a cute rhyme it a good way to teach kids new concepts. The repetition is also an excellent way to help teach them. I also like how he incorporates the large numbers so kids can see them and then match them to the number of objects.

Pete the Cat has four groovy buttons on his shirt, but one by one (do the math) they pop off. Does Pete let this bother him? No, he is one cool cat and finds a way to be happy with what he has, because buttons will come and go!

The rhythem of this book is so fun! Pete the cat starts out with four buttons on his shirt that just seem to pop off. However this does not make him sad, he just keeps on going! I like how this book turns something that might make kids upset into something that isn't really that big of a deal. It shows kids to brush off the small stuff and keep on walking! I love at the end when Pete realizes that he has his belly button and that one is there to stay. Great book to use for counting skills and just to have fun with. This would be a fun book to also have students act out. ( )

Young fans of the hip blue cat Pete will love the latest installment of Pete books. Pete keeps his cool as he loses buttons one by one, offering a great opportunity to teach simple subtraction skills throughout the story. This book lends itself nicely to a one-on-one read aloud or a group storytime setting. Caregivers or educators may also wish to include props (either actual buttons or colorful paper images) to act out the story as well. HarperKids' YouTube channel includes a super-catchy song to promote the book: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2YwCgtvnNg. ( )

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 Mon, 30 Sep 2013 13:34:54 -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.
