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.

There are many versions of "Pete the Cat." During this book, readers join Pete and his four groovy buttons. Basic math skills are written throughout this book, making it appropriate for young elementary readers. Based on the moral of this story, Pete teaches children not to become upset over small things. The illustrations and vivid coloring throughout this book keeps children engaged and makes it enjoyable to read. This book is sure to cheer your students up, so I recommend it! ( )

The main character of this book is Pete the Cat. In the book Pete likes his buttons that are on his shirt. They pop off and he is still happy because he has more buttons. At the end when all of the buttons fall of his shirt he is still happy because he still has his belly button. ( )

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.
