 Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons

I have now discovered a love of reading thanks to the book displays that the classes have created along the corridor. There was another book that caught my attention as there was a huge feline staring at me. Immediately, I wanted to chase after this strange, blue cat but I couldn’t help notice that in front of him was an array of buttons. This heightened my curiosity and made me want to discover more about why this cat had so many buttons. I found the book standing next to Pete so I decided to read it.


I soon discovered that this was more than just a story, it was a sing-along book that helps children to count.  There were also plenty of adjectives that described the buttons i.e. big, colourful, round and groovy. Although I shouldn’t like cats, I became fond of Pete as when he lost a button, he did not cry, he kept on singing his song which shows he is a happy and groovy cat. (They’re not all like that). I won’t spoil the ending (because I would recommend reading this book) but Pete discovers something different to what you would expect that made me bark out loud.

I also really enjoyed looking at the pictures the Reception children have created and how they have used buttons on their drawings. Also, I enjoyed reading the comments the children made about the story and just like one of the children said, ’I want some groovy buttons too.’

I hope you get to read this book yourself and find out what Pete discovers at the end of the story. As I discovered, not all cats are bad, they are just not ‘purr-fect’ like us dogs.
