About the Inspiration Book
Inspiration Book: Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes
Author: Art by James Dean, Story by Eric Litwin
My Review: Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes is one of those stories that your kids will want you to read again and again. Pete the Cat is just way too cool!
This story is about Pete the Cat and his brand new white shoes. He goes on a walk down the street and happens to get his shoes covered in different colors when he ends up stepping on piles of strawberries, blueberries, mud and other messy things. What does Pete the Cat do? He keeps his cool and keeps on singing his song.
This book has beautiful illustrations and a cheerful story that will teach kids about colors and keeping their cool because “no matter what you step in, keep walking along and singing your song… because it’s all good”
It also has a very catchy song, you can listen to the story and the song here.
I definitely recommend this book.
Preparation: (Done by a Parent or an Adult)
STEP 1: PRINT PETE THE CAT CRAFT TEMPLATE ON CONSTRUCTION PAPER

TIP: You might have to check the order in which your printer prints first so that you can arrange the pages correctly when placing them into your printer.
