I love Pete the Cat. He is a most unusual character: a cat with big eyes, blue fur and a continually positive attitude, no matter what happens. The picture book Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons is both a numbers concept book and a story about remembering what's important. Pete the Cat takes great joy in the four groovy buttons on his favorite shirt, even singing about them. But what happens when a button pops off, then another and another and another? You'll laugh when you read my review of Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons and find out. Since November is Picture Book Month, I'll mention a couple of other picture books also published in 2012 that I particularly like: Otto the Book Bear and And Then It's Spring.
