Pete the Cat put on his favourite shirt with four big, colourful, round groovy buttons. He loved his buttons so much, he sang this song: “My buttons, my buttons, my four groovy buttons. My buttons, my buttons, my four groovy buttons…”
It all started with this video. Anya came across it by chance and when she wanted to watch it again, she told me to look for “the one with the cat and his favourite shirt with colourful buttons”. It’s about a cat with a really positive attitude. No matter what situation Pete the Cat is in, he will always find something to be happy about so he’s a pretty good role model.
Anya would watch that video over and over as well as the other videos featuring Pete the Cat. Then I bought the book and the toy of Pete the Cat from Book Depository and she was really happy but now we have to read (and sing) the book to her before bedtime every single night! She knows it by heart but makes us read it anyway.
I borrowed another Pete the Cat book from the library the other day and she declared, “I love Pete the Cat and I want you to buy me all the books!” Now we are reading both books every night so I’m going to space out the buying in case I end up having to read a whole bunch of Pete the Cat books each time.
