This book is a great way to start the school year. Students love the Pete the Cat series and I think it is good for the lower grades to adapt to being back at school. It can show them that school may not be as scary as it seems. The book could be used as a read aloud on the first day or the near the beginning of the school year. The students could decorate a piece of paper shaped as a shoe and tell all about themselves on it. This could be a project that is hung in the classroom or hallway.
