Not so long ago, we were sent ‘Pete the Cat: I love my white shoes,’ from Harper Collins. We were not sent this to review but as a thank you for reviewing ‘How to Catch a Star,’ by Oliver Jeffers. When it arrived, we were all very excited as we were not expecting it at all! Both my children fell in love with the story straight away. It has a lovely song throughout, that we find ourselves singing even when not reading the story. The story has been great for helping my daughter to recognise some of her colours. We all really enjoyed reading about the cool cat, who keeps, “…walking along and singing his song”, no matter what gets in his way. It inspired me to think of some activities to do with my daughter to further her colour recognition. I drew some shoes and cut them out ready for my daughter to design her own coloured shoes.
Pete the Cat Shoe Colour Recognition Activities
We talked about the colours and my daughter helped to sort the craft items into different piles to help her to decorate the blue and red shoes. We also looked around to find different red, blue, white and brown items around our house.
