Pete the Cat





My Kindergarten and 1st graders had some fun with the very cute book, Pete the Cat, I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litwin, art by James Dean. The story follows Pete as he steps into a variety of situations but just keeps on going. They created their inspired pieces using tempera, watercolor and markers. Mr. Dean's (who left his job as an electrical engineer to become a full-time artist) playful, sketchy style was fun for them to mimic. And of course animals are always a favorite subject.
