A fun read with super cute illustrations. This was our first Katie Woo book to read, and now I can see why this series is so popular with younger readers. This particular book is a great collection of 4 short stories about Katie and her daily adventures. Written in an engaging chapter book style made it easy to follow along and enjoyable for my daughter. Once she starts learning how to read on her own, this will be a book she'll easily be able to sit and read by herself. With it's cute illustrations and short paragraphs on each page, Katie Woo fans will be sure to enjoy this new release. 
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
