1) He teaches kids that they shouldn't sweat the small stuff. Buttons pop off...they come and they go, but should you cry? Goodness no!
2) This new book is good for early subtraction skills. It even shows the math equations.
3) I use the video to learn the songs and the story the way it's meant to be told. Moms and Dads, Grandmas and Grandpas, and teachers: You can do this, too, to make the book fun with the appropriate groovy singing and sound effects!!
4) Colorful and fun illustrations!
It also introduces the concept of simple math (subtraction), "3-1=2"
It comes with a link to the video book!
Outstanding children's book with a positive message. Add this one to your library.
After only a few pages, you and your young reader will become fans of the coolest cat known to children's books. Pete the CAT adds a new level to the goal of "making learning fun", and your first venture into his groovy, hip world will surely not be your last. Pete's retro coolness will appeal to adults as well as kids, making it a pleasure to read (or listen to), even over and over (and over and over again).
For the young artists inspired by Pete: the series' brightly-colored illustrations are delightful. (You're likely to find the beloved children in your life starting to draw their own masterpieces of Pete and his feline world, opening up another world of creative expression.) Many children's books are filled with beautiful art, but art that would be overwhelming for a child (or even most adults) to attempt to model. Pete is drawn in a more simplistic way; kids will be pleased at their abilities to create their own likenesses of this charming cat.
An added bonus: this particular title (in hardback) comes with a downloadable
audio-visual version of the story. The catchy song, sung by a group of children, is easy to learn. After a listen or two, don't be surprised if kids will be singing the song as you read the book together!
Pete the CAT and His Four Groovy Buttons inspires kids to learn and be creative on many levels. It's by far one of the best titles I've seen in Children's books, and I'm betting it will be a classic these kids will read to their own children someday. (You would be wise to check out "Pete's" other books when you add this future favorite to your child's library!) -VERY Highly Recommended
(* this is an unsolicited review by a customer who paid for this book. I'm obviously a very enthusiastic fan.)
- Doc Aloha Reviews, 6/18/2015
The author, Eric Litwin has provided several good lessons. We learn how to subtract, we learn to sing along and best of all we learn that stuff comes and stuff goes, and it is no big deal! The illustrations by James Dean are bright, funny, attractive and attention getting. The cover page begs you to come and read. The illustrations are large, and when things get out of hand, the squiggly lines tell us, and we know it is ok. Pete the Cat is a happy fella, not much gets to him, he finds a rainbow behind every adversity, and best of all he sings!
This is the kind of book that is infectious. Small children will love the fun words, the singing and the happy colors. This is what a book for children is all about. Happy, lively, fun, bright colors and you learning lessons in small unexpected ways.
Highly Recommended. prisrob 01-30-13
