K-Gr 2—In this energetic series, a young girl learns about many different kinds of writing. Her friends and family make appearances as she keeps a journal, writes poems, pens letters, and more. Watercolor illustrations capture Katie's personality and give life to the stories. The titles look and read like easy readers. "Katie's Star Tip" sidebars complement the narratives by delivering advice about the kind of writing being highlighted. For example, Facts tells readers, "Brainstorming can help you pick a topic." The end of each book offers activity suggestions for budding writers, such as journal prompts, ideas for research papers, topics for opinion pieces, and suggestions of people to write letters to, such as grandparents. Website addresses lead readers and educators to more information and "downloadables."
