A perfect story about a cat that doesn't give a damn. He goes with the flow when everything happens to his brand new shoes, and he isn't phased. A VERY good lesson to just know that a lot of things are okay, and to be able to show up and feel good with change. Change is going to happen, it's the people who can't adapt well with that who have the hardest time. ( )

In this book Pete the cat is on a journey and gets his shoes dirty. Along the way the color of his shoes change because of the things he steps in. Its got a great song to it and that's the main reason children will love this book. In the classroom you can use this book to help the children with colors. It also helps them follow along because the story is repetitive and they learn what happens next. Pete the cat is my favorite character so the illustrations in this book are great! ( )

I truly enjoyed reading this story and everything it had to offer to the reader. This book included a disc with the songs that are sung through out the story and I really thought it was a great way to fully engage the reader. It also keeps the reader alert, making them feel like they’re a part of the story. The illustrations were very vivid and played an important role to the story line. They tied together Pete’s emotions about his shoes and colors. Also, the pictures are very kid friendly with vibrant colors making the reader stay interested and attentive. The writing of the story was very engaging and organized. Through out the story questions were asked to keep the reader fully aware as to what was going on during the story as well as keeping the reader involved. “Oh no! Pete stepped in a large pile of strawberries! What color did it turn his shoes?” This line makes the reader stop and think about what color the shoes will be and keeps him or her fully engaged. Even though the character in this book is fictional, Pete the Cat becomes relatable to the reader. He wears shoes just like the reader does and likes to sing songs about his day and what goes on. The big idea of the story is to teach the reader that no matter what happens, they have to keep going in life. Pete the Cat is shown to always have a good attitude even when things go wrong. This lesson can be very valuable for readers to learn and apply to life. ( )

Best if read aloud while listening to Jack Johnson. It has that feel.
Pete the cat has some shiny new kicks, beautifully white, and then accidents happen and he finds in time his shoes are turning different colours, until he walks through water, and the water cleanses the soul (sole)-of the shoe. Throughout the book Pete the cat is undeterred by change, he just rolls with it because it's already happened and there is nothing he can do. Feels sort of hippie new age to read, but has a good message for kids. ( )
