Katie Woo Rules the School
By: Fran Manushkin
Katie Woo Rules the School is a book for young readers that are ready for a beginning chapter book. Fran Manushkin has created a character that is believable right down to Katie sometimes making a wrong decision. Each chapter has Katie facing an experience any early reader may face from being bullied to taking something that is not hers. There are very good lessons to be learned from Katie's experiences. The character is enhanced by Tammie Lyon's clever illustrations. I loved the expressions on each character's face. There was no doubt as to how they were feeling.
As a former, teacher I would recommend this book. I feel it makes the transition to reading chapter books an enjoyable experience. After reading Katie Woo Rules the School I think the reader will want to read other books in the Katie Woo series. Happy Reading!
