Pete the Cat



this weekend Casey and I met Mr. Eric and James Dean, the author and illustrator of Pete the Cat
while James Dean painted and Mr. Eric sang...
the children sang and danced along and smiled
 

   
I loved James Dean's blue shoes!
I loved James Dean's blue shoes!
I loved James Dean's blue shoes!
I loved James Dean's blue shoes!
 they signed Casey's Pete and a book for my class
 
I am looking forward to the next Pete the Cat book 
by this former teacher and amazing artist!!

  1. How cool!! I am using Pete the Cat for the first time this week. I love meeting authors and being able to tell the children about it...it helps them understand that real people just like you and me wrote and illustrated this book!
