Katie Woo: Katie in the Kitchen by Fran Manushkin

Katie Woo: Katie in the Kitchen
                    by Fran Manuskin
               Illustrated by Tammie Lyon

Published by Picture Window Books a divison of Capstone Publisher

This is another gem in the Katie Woo series.
This lively and entertaining book centers around a young girl Katie who decides to help her mother make dinner while her mother is away. She hears a strange noise and is frightened that there is a ghost in the house.

The book is quite eye catching with lots of kid friendly pastel colors of pink, purple, yellow, green, orange, and other colors.

The book includes a Table of Contents that contains three chapters: Chapter 1: Helpful Katie; Chapter 2: Cooking Up Trouble; and Chapter 3: The Ghost. The book is a quick read of twenty four pages including About the Author, About the Illustrator, Glossary, Discussion Questions, Writing Prompts, Having Fun with Katie Woo that includes a recipe for Yogurt Parfait for One.

Readers are instructed top visit for games, puzzles, heroes, villains, authors, and illustrators!

I enjoyed reading this well written and well designed book. I would recommend this book for young girls between kindergarten through second grade! I think it is a nice addition to home, school, and public libraries.

Until the next time....

Happy Reading!!!!!!!!!
