Wearing his brand new, white shoes, Pete the Cat sets off down the street to take a walk. Along the way, he begins singing,
I love my white shoes, I love my white shoes, I love my white shoes.However, Pete's so busy singing, he doesn't realize he's come across a giant pile of strawberries... and his shoes are no longer white, they're red! Pete doesn't become upset though, and instead adjusts his song to fit his shoes. As the story continues, Pete runs into numerous other problems, all of which change the color of his shoes, but not his attitude!
This is a perfect story for children, as it deliberately states at the end of the book,
The moral of Pete's story is:
No matter what you step in,
keep walking along and
singing your song.
