Here they are, my PETE the CAT shoes. A wonderful raspberry color and I found them on a great sale. Why raspberry? It was/is a fun summer color. It's warm. It reminded me of raspberry sherbet. The price was right. Also, they are comfy and looked darling with any dress. Was it worth it? Yes! My kids love them. I wore them the night we met and the first day of school so they could find me. There was actually disappointment when I didn't wear them the second day of school.
We've been singing and rereading both Pete the Cat and Pete the Cat Rocking in My School Shoes. You can hear students singing during math workshop while we explore our math manipulatives. As I've been reading and rereading my mind started wondering about the writing of these two books. Is it intentional for Pete to be wearing red shoes while he is rocking in his school? His white shoes turned red first. If so, will his next adventure happen while wearing blue shoes? YES, I'm already requesting a new book about PETE. I also think PETE and Eric Litwin need to join twitter, I would follow them!
I hope your year is off to a wonderful start, mine has and it's busy. Enjoy!
