story by Eric Litwin art by James Dean
Pete is a very cool cat. Although he loves his white shoes, he doesn't complain when his shoes "change" along his journey. Pete just say's, "It's all good." Then carries on on his way!
This book is great for little ones and big ones alike. Lot's of repetition allows the children to read along with you. It is also a great book for learning patience and how to have a good attitude. This cool cat is fun to follow!
This activity may cost a bit, unless you have a pair of white keds to recycle? My girls and their friends did this activity on vacation, so we didn't have white keds...we used white tank tops. So keep your options open ;]
When the book has been read and your ready for an artistic adventure dig out those old white keds (or anything around that is white and can be colored on). Find your colored pack of sharpie perminant markers (or whatever medium you want to use that is perminant), and get to creating patterns and designs on those "groovy" white shoes!!
|My girls are older, so these patterns are not a great example of what a 4 year old would draw, but I hope the idea sets in? Mainly I just wanted you all to see how well the perminant markers work on fabric.|
*colored pack of perminant markers or paints
*white keds that fit, of coarse :] (or t-shirt, pillowcase, shoe laces....)
That's it...you're finished! So much fun, and time well spent with your little ones :]
I appologize for not getting this book out until Sunday. My family was on vacation in Lake Powell and I didn't have an internet connection. I hope you enjoy this weeks book and I will touch back with you on Friday for a new adventure :]
It's All Good!
