Pete The Cat Books by Eric Litwin

Pete the Cat by Eric Litwin

My 3 year-old boy discovered these books about a year ago at my work, and he just loves them. We just checked out all three from the local  library. Was he ever big stuff carrying those books out to the car… There are four books so far: Pete the Cat, Pete The Cat: Rocking in my School Shoes, Pete the Cat Saves Christmas, and Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons.

The writing is short and sweet, the pictures are groovy to say the least, and my son is actually learning while we read them.

As a young Christian parent, I have no qualms about this series. There is a Christmas one coming out, so we will have to see on that one. As a side note, the phrase, “goodness, no,” appears a number of times. Some parents may not want that.

At http://www.harpercollinschildrens.com/feature/petethecat/ you can listen to the author read aloud. A group of kids and actual music accompany many of the parts. I totally recommend this as a fun read aloud for the whole family.

My mom does home daycare, and I have done these books with the kids before nap time. We dance all over the den while rocking to the books. I catch my son singing or reading along with the audio most of the recording.
