Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons written by Eric Litwin, created and illustrated by James Dean and published by HarperCollins Children’s Books, a division of HarperCollins Publishers

In a picture book format accessible to beginning readers, a blue mellow-eyed feline keeps losing his groovy buttons in “Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons.”  But does he cry? Goodness no! Bold backgrounds and rhyming refrains encourage beginning readers to look for the bright side of every situation. For after all, it’s all good!   – –
