Pete the Cat Rockin' in my School Shoes

Pete the Cat: Rocking in My School Shoes - Eric Litwin, James Dean

Pete the Cat Rockin' in my School Shoes is a cute story about a cat who goes to school in his new pair of shoes. Throughout the book, Pete is introduced to the layout of the school. It is a great book to read to kindergarteners on the first day of school, to ease anxiety. The book describes the "library", the "lunchroom", etc... and asks, "Where is Pete?" Pete has never been to school, but is not worried. He rocks on throughout the day in his new school shoes. Youtube has a video of the book, along with the song Pete sings. Besides being a great introduction to the concept of school, teachers could take the students on an actual tour, teaching procedures to the students as they are introduced to their new school.
