#79 - Pete the Cat - I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin

Pete the Cat shimmies down the street singing, I love my white shoes... His shoes turn red when he steps into a large pile of strawberries. Did Pete cry? Goodness, no! He keeps walking along singing his song. I love my red shoes.... He then steps into a large pile of blueberries and then a mud puddle, each incident changing his sneakers to a new hue.  Pete takes it all in stride. After stepping into a  bucket of water, Pete notices that his sneakers are not only white again, but also wet.

Have a child be the cat and clap a rhythm for the group. The other children listen and then act as copycats. They clap the same rhythm as the cat did. Another child then becomes the cat and creates a rhythm for the copycats to imitate.
