This musical rock story of a blue cat painted in water colors and tempera, in a funny note, help students to count and subtract the buttons he misses through out the story, and instead of crying, the blue cat continues to sing. dynamic color coded text to identify key rhyming words and concepts. Excellent for students to count and predict with such repetitive structure, good for sounding out letters, and for summarizing to determine the importance. Very groovy!

Pete the cat is wearing his favorite shirt with 4 buttons on it. He loves his buttons so much that he begins singing a song. Then suddenly a button pops off and he wonders how many buttons are left. 3 so he keeps singing the song but instead of 4 he says 3. This continues until all the buttons have popped off. He then continues to sing his song about his belly button!

Pete sings a song about his four groovy buttons. As the book goes on, he continues to lose his buttons one by one, but he is okay with it. ( )

Pete is a cat that is cool, calm, and collective even after he loses his buttons. He just keeps on singing his mellow song. This book is a classic subtraction book that is filled with bright and colorful pictures. Pete teaches us that even when you lose something that does not mean one has to lose its cool. “It’s all good.” This book is a great asset in the math classroom for when those problems get a little too frustrating or to teach a lesson on subtracting.
