The picture book it great for young readers. I really enjoyed it and the colorful pictures. This book shows children that they don't have to get upset if they lose something. It also introduces a new word to their vocabulary: groovy, it's not something you hear every day! It's also an interactive book, in how it asks "how many buttons are left" so the readers are able to do a little fun math! ( )

Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons by Eric Litwin is the third of the original Pete the Cat picture books. Pete is now being written by the illustrator.

Pete has a new yellow rain slicker with four colorful buttons. As with his white shoes, Pete's jacket is in for a rough day. For one reason or another, he pops a button.

Pete, philosopher that he is, has a reason to not worry even if the very last button falls off his coat. That twist of humor woven into the moral of the story makes Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons my favorite of the books. It's also the book my daughter picks the most from her collection of Pete the Cat books. ( )

This is a fun book to read with very early elementary students. Can be used to teach subtraction, as each time Pete loses a button, one is subtracted from his total. The song can also be fun for kids.

I think the Pete the cat books are always great for young readers, the little songs are really fun, and there is always a cute little story line and brite colors. The book also tells the lesson of just moving on rather than letting little problems bog us down.

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.

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.
