Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kristy Lyn Sutorius
Katie Woo is the most relatable, fun-loving Chinese-American character to hit the Easy Reader stage in some time. This book and the other simultaneously published sequel, Best Season Ever, demonstrate more of Katie's antics. She is left to her own devices when her mom goes next door to care for a sick neighbor and her dad rejects her offer to help him fix his car. Katie helps anyway by whipping up some spaghetti and cookies. But she remembers that "turning on the stove is a no-no, so Mom can cook [these things] when she comes back." Flour covers the kitchen and bandages cover Katie when all is said and done. The third and final chapter, in which Katie gets spooked by the idea of ghosts in her house, seems disjointed from the rest of the story, but readers will connect regardless. Manushkin's "Katie Woo" series is perfectly designed for kids who have trouble with writing and comprehension. Discussion questions, writing prompts, a glossary, and a recipe make up the latter part of the book. This series is a delightful precursor to the Ruby Lu books by Lenore Look. Reviewer: Kristy Lyn Sutorius
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—In Best Season Ever, Katie, Pedro, and JoJo debate the merits of the seasons, comparing blooming tulips and puddles to sledding and hot chocolate. They share differences of opinion and learn to accept each others' views. Katie decides, "All of the seasons are fun when I'm with you." In Kitchen, Katie decides to help prepare dinner when her mom visits a sick neighbor and her dad is busy working on his car, with humorous and messy results. Katie's activities will provide opportunities for readers to discuss manners and safety issues within the context of common activities. These books have three short chapters with a large font, plenty of brightly colored picture cues, a suggested activity, discussion questions, and writing prompts. Early readers will enjoy Katie's antics.—Laura Scott, Farmington Community Library, MI

    We love Katy Woo!

    This is a great series of books. My daughter loved them and I ordered this boom for my niece who also loved them. Both girls in first grade were having trouble reading. These are "chapter books" but written on a very easy to read level. They feel great about reading chapter books just like their friends but don't get frustrated. A true gift for a struggling reader. On top of that they're great stories that lots of kids will enjoy!!!
