Publisher Comments:

Open up a fresh and stylish story about growing up and keeping hold of your favorite memories. As the year passes, the narratorand#8217;s favorite dress goes through a series of creative changes, from dress to shirt to tank top to scarf and so on, until all thatand#8217;s left of it is a good memory. Assisted by her patient and crafty mama, the narrator finds that when disaster strikes her favorite things, she doesnand#8217;t need to make mountains out of molehillsand#8212;she and#8220;makes molehills out of mountainsand#8221; instead! Structured around the days of the week, the story is also illustrated to show the passing of the seasons, a perfect complement to the themes of growing older and keeping hold (and letting go) of special mementos.

Pete the Cat goes walking down the street wearing his brand new white shoes. Along the way, his shoes change from white to red to blue to brown to WET as we steps in piles of strawberries, blueberries and other big messes!

I was first introduced to Pete the Cat at a library story-time and was impressed by his cool. When Pete's favorite white shoes get covered in strawberries, does he cry? Oh, no, he just keeps singing his song and rolling along. He keeps stepping in different-colored stuff (teaches colors), singing a song (fun to sing with the kiddos), and doesn't go into meltdown mode when something bad/unexpected happens (hopefully teaches kids not to go into meltdown mode when something bad/unexpected happens). This is one *groovy* book!

I love using this book with my kindergarten and first grade students. We make a class book for it as well with each students' picture and what color shoes they like. This is a must have for primary teachers.
