By Judy K. Polhemus VINE VOICE on August 26, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Last school year I introduced our K-4 class to Pete the Cat Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. Those children LOVED that blue cat soooo much that they clamored for Pete three weeks in a row. In fact, when they insisted on the fourth time, I had to just say no and read another book. Imagine my total happiness when I found "Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes."

So, were the children happy to see a new book about Pete during their first visit to the library for the new school year? Goodness No! They clamored for "Pete the Cat" again. I read it once then again by demand. I thought, "Well. They don't want the new Pete." But I was wrong.

When they arrived in the library for their second visit of the new school year, they said, "Read 'Pete the Cat' again!" I responded: "What about the new book?" "Yes," they clamored. They immediately picked up the new words and began singing right along: "I'm rocking in my school shoes. I'm rocking in my school shoes."

And: "I'm eating in my school shoes. I'm eating in my school shoes." And: "I'm reading in my school shoes...." Where? "In the Library!" Oh, what a rocking cat! What a rocking book! Erick Litwin and James Dean, you guys have made so many children so happy with your cool Pete and his little yellow bird friend and, of course, those most excellent shoes.

I think that's all I need to say, but I will add that the illustrations are lively, bold, joyous, and inviting. Pete the Cat is a wildly popular book character, who now lives, I might add, in our library. He sits atop my reading chair, waiting to play with all boys and girls. He might even toss in a "I'm rocking in my school shoes!

Pete the Cat has returned and this time he is wearing his school shoes! Litwin and Dean have created another super stellar story of Pete in school. Pete goes through his school day having experiences that all school children can relate to while singing and dancing and rockin' and groovin'. Make sure you download the music that accompanies the book and you, too, will be singing and dancing along with Pete! If you haven't read Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, be sure to purchase that book too!

My daughter first read Pet the Cat (I love my white shoes) when she was spending 13 days at the hospital, really sick. She LOVED it, and the positive message, and the funny way we made up to sing about Pete's shoes!
I since bought the I Love my White Shoes and then the Rocking in My Shool Shoes. We read them everyday!

I have 3 boys, two who are of reading age. The 2 year old enjoys following along with his older brothers. This is a great book for the first grade set. My second grader is of normal intelligence, but dyslexic, and has a real hard time with some of the typeface in the book. The font is exactly like the author credit on the bottom of the book cover and isn't particularly clear sometimes.

This earlier version of Pete the Cat book is fantastic. All my kids including those in classroom loves this book. We love how Pete rocks with his school shoes and there's a tune to it. Especially when the author has a video version of this you can view online and it is wonderful. We rate this book 5 out of 5 Stars.

Love this whole line of books. So cute and easy for the kids to remember so they can "read" along (or sing along). My son has always loved electric guitars, so this one is a favorite. Cute and colorful illustrations. Repetitive (but not annoying) story for kids to enjoy. (I like them too!)

This book and all the series are awesome! Easy ya to start the morning with fun and dance, even in a hurry... Playing the music online while reading the books makes it easy to participate and not have to flip the pages for the littles ones, as they find their way through the books on their own and learn along the way!
