Pete El Gato I Love My White Shoes

This book is in Spanish but I couldn’t resist a story about an adorable singing cat who loves his white shoes.

Pete is so cool. And rock and roll. Nothing fazes this cat. He sings about his white shoes (in English) and when he stumbles into a mountain of strawberries and accidentally dyes his shoes red, well, he just keeps singing about how much he loves his red shoes. It goes on like this for awhile. I don’t handle change anywhere near as well as Pete does. He rips through Pete El Gato I Love My White Shoes as merrily as anything.

Written by Eric Litwin and illustrated by James Dean, this is a great little story for kids learning Spanish. And if you just love cats and don’t know any Spanish, Google translate is your friend. I think there is an English version of the books somewhere, but the Spanish translation made it even more charming.
