The book, Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, was a breath of fresh air on a shelf full of stale and overly commercial books. Pete the cat sings a song about his love of his white shoes. Along the way he steps in different things (strawberries, blueberries, mud, etc) to turn his brand new shoes different colors. No matter what happens to his shoes, he keeps upbeat because "it's all good." It has a terrific moral to the story ("no matter what you step in...") and I immediately thought this would be a great teaching book about handling the bumps in the road (especially for emotional toddlers and preschoolers).
I don't think you'll be disappointed with this one!!
