Pete the cat (Rocking in my school shoes) is about a young cat named Pete who goes to school in his new school shoes, as he goes throughout the day he sings his song. And says he’ll do it all over again tomorrow.
Idea of how it can be used in a classroom:
Pete the cat (Rocking in my school shoes) could be used on one of the first days of school to get students to come out of their shells a bit. The teacher could ask the students who here got new shoes for the first day of school or even have the students color a pair of their own school shoes on paper.

Pre-K to Second
I would rate this book a 4 because it could be used as a ice breaker for students on their first couple of days at school and maybe even help them make friends with others.
