Book Review: You've Got to Check This Out!!!

While meandering through Barnes and Noble this weekend I happened upon the cutest book. So cute I made my husband sit and listen to me read it to him. And I really wanted to read it to him multiple times. I loved it so much I had to share!!!

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!!

Sounds good, I've been wanting some longer books to get for Tobias soon so this is definitely going on the list. Thanks for the recommendation!
