If your primary students are ready for a new song book: Pete the Cat is it! My son's first grade class has been enjoying this book the antics of the Pete in his new white shoes. This song book is perfect for shared reading. It is filled with repetitive text, prediction and a great message.
Pete is a blue, easy-going cat with brand new shoes. He loves to walk along and sing. He loves his new shoes but steps in many things (strawberries, blueberries, and mud) that change his shoes to blue, red and brown. But Pete isn't bothered, he keeps walking along and singing his song. In fact, a favorite part of the book is the last page where you read the moral of the story: (not matter what you step in: keep walking along and singing your song) it's all good.
Check out the link to the song and free download here at Harper Collins.
