Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons, James Dean

Notes: Pete the cat loves the buttons on his shirt so much that he makes up a song about them, and even as the buttons pop off, one by one, he still finds a reason to sing.

From the Publisher: Pete the Cat is wearing his favorite shirt—the one with the four totally groovy buttons. But when one falls off, does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He just keeps on singing his song—after all, what could be groovier than three groovy buttons? Count down with Pete in this rocking new story from the creators of the bestselling Pete the Cat books.

Strengths: Pete the Cat is always a big hit in the elementary school library.  I mean, what's not to love.  Pete is a very hip and funny cat. In this book, he's got a coat with four groovy buttons. Unfortunately, they're always popping off. But Pete doesn't cry. Goodness no, buttons come and buttons go.  He just keeps on singing his groovy song. Easy subtraction from 4 to 0 included in the text.

Weaknesses: I would not dare to call Pete weak for fear of a retaliatory scratching!
