On the first day of school at the temporary location, principal Kathleen Patterson read the book to students at an all-school assembly. 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? Pete the Cat knows what's important. You'll laugh when you read my review of Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons and find out, but you'll also appreciate Pete the Cat's attitude.
