Opinion

From Library Staff

Pete the Cat loves to walk along and sing a song about his shoes. It's fun to make up a new tune each time you read the book. This book is a great way to discuss cause and effect. If Pete steps in a pile of strawberries, what color will his shoes be? Wait to see how your child answers before turn... Read More »

Storytime, or anytime, Pete the Cat is a great refrain for the littles. Read it enough, your child might start saying "goodness no!" to their troubles, and tell me if that doesn't just melt your darn heart.

Young children will love this book! It is funny, engaging, and teaches the concept of colors.

A terrific picture book with a catchy refrain. Simple introduction to resilience for children as Pete does not get upset when his shoes get dirty and change colour. Check out the free song here: http://www.petethecatbooks.com/songs/

The book “I Love My White Shoes” is by Eric Litwin and it is very popular and fun to read. This book is great for reading aloud to a group of kids because the audience can sing along with Pete the cat. Every story with Pete the cat is very interesting and it always keeps children entertained. The pictures in this book were greatly illustrated and it is very eye-catching due to the bright colours that were used. I would recommend this book to preschoolers and young kids around that age range because I find that they are more attracted to books like this. Just like how Pete love his white shoes, I love this book. 5/5 rating. @TheBookieReadingMonster of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

The stories about Pete the Cat, are so creative and beautifully made that is Impossible not to read every one of his adventures. This one particular book, made me think how often I used to lose my joy when silly little things don't work out as I expected and how if I change my attitude, which is the only thing that I really can control, helps me to see the beauty in every single challenge that makes this life wonderful and excited to live. And those are the kind of stories I want to read to my children.

I was a preschool teacher in the 80's and through the years had collected children's book which I read or shared with those around me. I was just made aware of Pete the Cat when in conversation with a relative who works with children in another state. She had made arrangements to rent a Pet the Cat puppet--worn as full gear like BIG BIRD--and presented
"I Love My White Shoes" to several Preschool sites in her area, which really went over well with the children. I just read the book and thought it delightful. Pete the Cat is a good series to help stir the creative imagination of a child.

I am rating this book for my toddler. My husband and I don't care much for the book, but son loves it. The repetition appeals to him, and he loves to have mom and dad sing the song. It is also a plus that he loves shoes, and his favorite fruits include blueberries and strawberries, so the book is a hit for its content matter. Depending on your perception the drawings could be seen as cute or sloppy, but really it's audience doesn't care, so this book is a success overall.

Truly delightful in every way. A great read-aloud, with a great catchy rhythm and a wonderful positive message. The story is simple yet charming and is a sure-fire hit with a storytime crowd.

Another great book about Pete the Cat who has a good attitude about what happens in life and how you can look on the good side of anything that happens to you or anything that you might step into! I did not know there was actual songs to go with his lyrics! That'll be another fun activity to go with this book. I'd recommend any of the Pete the Cat books to parents and grandparents. It would be a good read for children who experience depression or perhaps some kind of difficult life experience.

As he walks down the street, Pete the cat sings about his brand new white shoes as they change from red to blue to brown to wet.

Aesthetically appealing--simple and stylish-- Pete the Cat is a wonderful story about resilency, something all children really need to learn about. (Adults, too!!) Pete knows how to make lemonade out of lemons. When something goes unexpectedly wrong: "did Pete cry? Goodness, no! He kept walking along and singing his song." Pete knows the art of appreciating what he's got, rather than wanting what he hasn't. He's cool, musical, a great guitar-playing role model who knows how to enjoy life. We love Pete!
