Pete the Cat ~ Eric Litwin


We have a new favorite song book this week….Pete the Cat! It is filled with great illustrations, repetitive text, predictability and a good lesson!

Pete is a blue, easy-going cat with brand new shoes. He loves to walk along and sing.  He loves his new shoes but steps in many things (strawberries, blueberries, and mud) that change his shoes to blue, red and brown.  But Pete isn't bothered, he keeps walking along and singing his song.   In fact, a favorite part of the book is the last page where you read the moral of the story: (no matter what you step in: keep walking along and singing your song) it's all good!

Guess what else is good?  The author Eric Litwin is going to be in MONTGOMERY this weekend at the Alabama Book Festival!!! If you have never been it is a real treat, so much fun for the whole family. Best of all this fun event is FREE!

      “The sixth annual Alabama Book Festival will be held in historic downtown Montgomery at Old Alabama Town on April 16, 2011, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The free public event is the state’s premier book festival—with more than 4,000 people from around the state converging in the capital to meet with and hear from their favorite authors and scholars. A children’s activity area organized by Alabama Public Television is sure to make this a day of fun for the entire family. The 2011 event will continue the festival’s tradition of promoting reading and literacy to Alabamians of all ages and backgrounds.”

Maybe I will see some of you there!! Also, I can’t access youtube at school, but there are some really fun Pete the Cat readings on there that the children would love!

It’s all good!!
