Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Elizabeth Fronk
Katie is having a party at school to celebrate her birthday. Her friends, JoJo and Pedro, have special ways to celebrate their birthdays also. Katie receives a red sweater and decides that red is her lucky color. Her mother is bringing a special treat for her class party. Katie decides that she also has a special treat to share with the rest of her classmates. Katie's mom brings some wonderful fruit and Katie shows everyone her poster which celebrates her classmates "unbirthday." Hopefully the bright pink cover and flowers do not turn away male beginning readers because Katie's surprise on her birthday is a true treat. She shows how everyone can participate on any given classmate or friend's birthday. The activities at the end are helpful for generating discussion or use in a class writing project. The book contains a glossary with words that might be difficult for beginning readers and an online activity. The book's bright pink cover and flowers should not discourage boys from reading about Katie as her enthusiasm is contagious. Part of the "Katie Woo" series. Reviewer: Elizabeth Fronk
