Eric Litwin was born in 1966 in New York City.
Know as Mr. Eric, Litwin not only writes books, but he also plays several instruments, including the guitar and harmonica. He combines all of these things to create his best selling children’s books.
Among these books are the New York Times best sellers, Pete the Cat. Litwin is responsible for the first four books in the series and created some seriously groovy tunes to go with them.
Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes
Pete the Cat: Rocking in my School Shoes
Pete the Cat and His Four Groovy Buttons
Pete the Cat Saves Christmas
I’m currently working towards my degree in Early Childhood Education so I have read Mr. Litwins books A LOT. Some kids books you get sick of reading over and over, but these ones are honestly entertaining. Maybe it’s the fact there’s music involved too?
Whatever it is, he’s clearly doing something right because his books have sold over 13 million copies worldwide. He is also a well-respected voice for interactive literacy and music – two things proven to work well together, especially for children’s learning.
If you have children, or work with children, I highly recommend Eric Litwin’s, Pete the Cat, books. They are highly entertaining for children and not quite as repetitive as “Baby Shark”.
