Pete is one cool cat! He is so excited about his new white shoes. However, he keeps stepping in different items that changes the color of his shoes. Does he mind? No! He keeps his cool and sings his song. This book is great for the obvious, such as color recognition. However, I saw a great activity where the teacher let the students write their favorite color of Pete's shoes on an anchor chart, and then bar charted the results. What a great way to incorporate math and reading!
