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.

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!Read more ›
