Pete the Cat! If you haven’t been introduced you are probably looking at this picture thinking what is the big deal?!? Well I was hooked just after hearing his catchy little song. But there is so much more to Pete the Cat than just his song. One of my favorite things from the books is the lessons we can learn from Pete. Pete never gets angry or throws a fit when things don’t go his way – he just makes the best of it and keeps on going!
