Before heading to the pool, we read Pete the Cat by Eric Litwin-Mr. Eric, as he is known to thousands of kids across Georgia. Check it out here on Amazon for around 10 bucks. The book includes a download of the accompanying song.
T (my little guy) says the chorus with me, "I love my white shoes, I love my white shoes." He loves it. "Les read agin mommy." It just so happens we have the Pete the Cat doll, so T decides he should join us for round two!
This book is also a hit with kindergarteners and first graders, too! It reinforces color words and has beautiful illustrations. It screams imagination and would be great for helping someone "get over it."
