Virtual Book Club for Kids chooses a new author to feature each month. You can find the list of 2014-2015 featured authors on our recent Virtual Book Club for Kids Announcement post.
In November we are featuring the amazing Eric Litwin! Eric is the author of one of our favorite series- Pete the Cat!
For Virtual Book Club for Kids we selected three of our favorite Eric Litwin books to spotlight this month! Eric is the author of the first four Pete the Cat books, so we're going to list all four books in this post and then you can pick your favorites to spotlight too. You might want to read all of them! Virtual Book Club for Kids co-creator Kim Vij even got to meet and interview Eric Litwin recently. Here he is singing some Pete the Cat songs live over at The Educators' Spin On it.
Do you have a favorite Pete the Cat book? Here are the awesome ones written by Eric Litwin:
Pete the Cat I Love my White Shoes
This story always cracks my kids up and is great to read when you're teaching kids about colors too.
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
This book is a wonderful one to use when teaching kids about counting!
Pete the Cat Rocking in My School Shoes
This is a fabulous story to read all year long, especially for little ones that are preparing for school or kids that just started school earlier this fall! It is fun to discover cool places at school with Pete!
Now that Halloween has passed many people are preparing for Christmas. This would make a delightful addition to your Christmas books. It has such a sweet message about getting into the Christmas spirit!

Nice I love the cat books i wish I could get book samples by mail
I just happened to come across this link and it is hilarious that you are doing Pete the Cat - my son's homemade Halloween costume this year was Pete the Cat, complete with wagon converted to Wheels on the Bus! His favorite!
Will be bookmarking this for the future, the holidays are too crazy to do another activity right now. 😀
Buttons were popping at our house! We made a Pete the Cat-apult.
