Pete the Cat Saves Christmas by Eric Litwin
Illustrated by James Dean
In the most recent book from the Pete the Cat saga, Pete has to save Christmas because Santa is sick!! He thinks about how small he is but how at Christmas we have to give it our all. He hops in his minibus to head to the North Pole. The elves load up his minibus and hook up the reindeer. They're off! Pete delivers all the presents and saves Christmas for Santa!
Throughout the story Pete sings his song "Give it your all, give it your all. At Christmas we give, so give it your all" and that's what he did! He gave his all even when he was small. I thought this was a great message about Christmas and doing your best even when you don't think you can do it. No matter how much you can give, give it your all!
When you read this book with your class, make sure you download the Free Song! You can find it here: Pete the Cat Saves Christmas. The author, Eric Litwin reads the story and sings Pete's song with the help of some children. I let my sister and Andy experience Pete the Cat the right way with the music when I read it to them the other day! All his other books also come with a free downloadable song for you to play when you read the book. He has also written Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes, Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons, and Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes.
Andy got me the whole set of Pete the Cat books for Christmas! He's the best ever! I decided to share this book today because I had to take him to the airport so he can go home to Maine for Christmas. Pretty lame if you ask me.
