PreSchool-Grade 1 A slight episode about a navy-blue cat, new white shoes, and maintaining a positive outlook. Pete the Cat strolls down the street singing, I love my white shoes, I love my white shoes, I love my white shoes. Then he steps in (actually climbs up) a huge hill of strawberries that turn his pristine sneakers red. Did Pete cry? Goodness, no! He kept walking along and singing his song. I love my red shoes.... He proceeds to step in a mound of blueberries and then a mud puddle, each incident changing his sneakers to a new hue (the colors never blend). Unsmiling but placid, Pete takes it all in stride. After stepping into a bucket more like a tub of water, he notices that his sneakers are not only white again, but also wet. Even though they are back to their original color, the next illustration perplexingly shows Pete walking along with each shoe sporting one of the four colors highlighted in the book. Bright, childlike illustrations show the long-limbed feline regularly altering his footwear but continuing not to watch where he's walking. The moral of the story keep going no matter what happens to you in life may sound like good advice, but it doesn't instill any sense of power in children it just tells them to accept their fate. The downloadable song might help spark interest, but there's not much here to get excited about. Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI

I have given the book as gifts to new parents several times and also as birthday gifts to toddlers. (I did NOT give the book to a little girl I loved who was dying from cancer since the moral of the story (seen in the last two pages) is: So just walk along and sing your song because... it's all good!
I couldn't imagine anyone reading that to her as she was in great pain. In her case,,,it was not all good. But the moral work well with the story and is encouraging for young and old in most cases.
My one complaint is that Pete doesn't seem to question why there would be a large pile of blueberries or strawberries in the spots where he normally walks. I can understand being layed back, but I think maybe Pete could be a bit more proactive in protecting his stuff. And the strawberry and blueberry people. Growing berries must take some investment of both time and money and to have some 4 legged stompalot carelessly smash them must be frustrating.
Alas, its all good.
