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. ( )

This is a fun subtraction activity integrated into a fun, familiar book. I think this is a great book for pre-school and Kindergarten as students begin to work on math.

This was my first Pete the Cat story I've read and I was excited about it! I think that this is an excellent book for parents or teachers who are trying to teach children subtraction and counting. Although the plot line isn't exactly compelling, I love the illustrations and the educational aspects behind the story. This would be a fun way to get children to want to try out some subtraction.

Pete the Cat is one cool cat. He will have your kids counting, singing and subtracting right before your eyes. The colorful pages and large writing is perfect for pre-school to 1st grade students. ( )

This recaptures some of the groove of the first Pete the Cat and I love the refrain, "Buttons come and buttons go." Even my 11yo was amused at the appearance of the belly button! ( )

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 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.
