Pete the Cat is wearing his favorite shirt—the one with the four totally groovy buttons. But when one falls off, does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He just keeps on singing his song—after all, what could be groovier than three groovy buttons? Hardcover. 40 pages. 8½" x 11". Ages 4+
"Who can resist Pete the Cat? He moves, he grooves, he raps, he rhymes. And readers can download an audio version with guitar and singing that is loads of fun. In this latest addition to the Pete the Cat series, Pete starts out with four big colorful buttons on his shirt. One by one they pop off leaving him with only one last button… his belly button. “Did Pete cry? Goodness, no! Buttons come and buttons go.” The creative use of color to accentuate the singsong text enunciates the rhythm. This makes a very playful introduction to subtraction that readers will want to hear again and again. Along with large expressive pictures of cool cat, Pete, there is a page with giant numbers that also shows the simple subtraction algorithm and the number word. This upbeat series is already very popular, and this title is the best so far."
