Pete the Cat - encouragement book

This.  book.  ROCKS!

...for any age.  Really.

'Cause who doesn't need the reminder, and encouragement to keep movin' along when stuff happens to us?

Spoiler alert:
And what did Pete the Cat do when stuff happened?
"He kept walking along and singing his song."

Awesome.  This book is fun, and you can't help but sing Pete's song with him.

Love Pete's thoughts on why he keeps going, no matter what he steps in:

Pete the Cat: I Love my White Shoes
by Eric Litwin, art by James Dean.

Found it at the library, but I'm going to be buying a copy for home before we wear out the pages of the library copy.

Activity idea:  my kids drew pics of everything Pete stepped in, and re-enacted the book with some dancing and singing.
