I popped into my local White Stuff branch recently and treated myself to a dress in their sale. Not only do they have some lovely clothes, their labels are a really nice touch too - and... they have huge wooden buttons dotted around the walls of the store.

I love 'Pete the Cat & His Four Groovy Buttons' by Eric Titwin and James Dean - as it's such a fun counting book to read & rhyme with young children.
Pete the Cat is wearing his favorite shirt - the one with the four totally groovy buttons. But when one falls off, does Pete cry? Goodness, no! He just keeps on singing his song—after all, what could be groovier than three groovy buttons? Count down with Pete in this rocking new story from the creators of the bestselling Pete the Cat books. You can also go online to the Pete the Cat website and download the audio of the book.
There is a fantastic blog post here, by Deborah Stewart of Teach Preschool, which shows how to incorporate the book with teaching pre-schoolers - be prepared for a whole lotta glue!
