Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons

Pete the Cat Groovy ButtonsPete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons

By: Eric Litwin

One of my very favorite children’s books is a Pete the Cat title, Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons, by James Dean.  The 4 groovy buttons are on Pete’s favorite shirt and he even has a song he sings – “My buttons, my buttons, my four groovy buttons.”  In the book when he gets up at 8 a.m. as the sun is coming up, he puts on his favorite shirt and sings his song.  As Pete’s day progresses however, one after another of his groovy buttons “POP” off.  Pete’s positive attitude is inspirational and continues throughout his day as he does the math and re-figures how many buttons he has left.  He continues to sing his song…..until….well, I don’t want to give away the WHOLE story – please check it out.  We have several Pete the Cat character books in our collection.  We have Pete books in our picture book collection and also in our I Can Read collection. Pete the Cat has lots of good stories to share.
