This energetic and fun story tells us about a cat who takes a stroll down the sidewalk in his new white shoes. Along the way he encounters items that turn his shoes all different colors. This story has a repetitive structure and sing-along elements that will keep all students engaged. It would be wonderful to read as a whole group and discuss the colors that are shown in the story. I would also use this as a choral reading activity since it does contain many repeated lines. Once we have read it a few times as a class I would put it in my listening center.
