Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nancy Garhan Attebury
At Katie's school, Valentine's Day is filled with fun when the class does math and reading that centers on a heart theme. Excitement increases when the teacher assigns students the job to write their names on a slip of paper and deposit it in a pretty Valentine box. Each child selects a name from the box, creates a Valentine for that child, and writes something nice about the classmate. Katie chooses the name of the new boy Barry and paints him a Valentine. But after all of the Valentines are done and read, Katie discovers that she did not get a card and her feelings are hurt. Then she realizes she did not put her name in the box. The teacher asks for a volunteer to write something nice about Katie on the board and Barry volunteers. Barry thinks that he did not get a card either until Katie jumps up and gives him the one she made for him. Much to their delight, Katie and Barry discover that they both said the same nice thing about each other. The day ends well when Barry is invited to walk home with Katie and her friends. This book works well for guided reading and emerging and early readers. It contains three short chapters with short sentences and big print. Readers can identify with the simple problem and solution. A bonus that includes a glossary, discussion questions, a writing project, and a fun recipe for heart breadsticks is at the back of the book. The book comes from the "Katie Woo" series that contains delightful stories for holidays. Other books in the series feature Thanksgiving, Halloween, and the Fourth of July.

School Library Journal
K-Gr 2—In Katie Saves Thanksgiving, the second grader's guests are stuck in the snow and the family oven goes on the fritz. Fortunately, while shoveling her neighbor's walk, Katie learns that the woman will be all alone for the holiday, and her oven works just fine. In No Valentines, Katie's teacher has the students draw names, asks them to make a valentine for that person, and to include a compliment. Katie becomes so involved in making her valentine for the new student in her class that she forgets to put her name and the boy's valentine in the box. The compliments are then exchanged verbally, and they become friends. Each page features a colorful illustration and large-print, short sentences. The stories have a message without being heavy-handed, using simple language and incidents relevant to students' lives. Each book includes discussion questions and a craft or baked item to make.—Sarah Provence, Churchill Road Elementary School, McLean, VA
