  • Pete the cat : rocking in my school shoes by Litwin, Eric.
    ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

    This book used to be my younger brother’s favorite book when we were growing up. When I reread this I had a rush of nostalgia of the days my mother used to read this to me and my brother. This story inspired my brother to want a red pair of converses, my mother used to have to try and take them off of him. The simple cat art work is memorable, the colors are vivid, the story and the lyrics complement the artwork. But beware after you read this book you may be singing to yourself Rock in my school shoes.
