Substitutes, FTW! blog - Veronica Chase

"Growing up, I was an avid reader. I loved book series because they gave you got to see your favorite characters grow. Today, when I’m observing the books students choose to read and what they check out from their school libraries, I’m struck by a major difference in some of their popular fiction versus what I grew up reading. When I was growing up, it was quite a task to find a book series featuring a female protagonist who was not white. Ramona Quimby, Nancy Drew, the Sweet Valley Twins, 95% of the Babysitter’s Club, etc. were all white. They are wonderful books and children from any race can read and enjoy stories about these characters, but I wondered what young black, Hispanic, Asian, and other races lost when they got few chances to read books about characters that look like them. If any race can read and love Ramona, shouldn’t they all be given the chance to read and relate to a black character, or an Asian one? Why don’t publishers make more of these books? Tough we are aware of the reasons why it’s important for students to read books like this, there is still a paucity of books available that spotlight racially diverse characters. Nevertheless, there are now a lot more options for young readers. I love seeing girls with their noses in books, and I was struck when I saw girls of all races reading two series starring diverse female protagonists: Katie Woo and Dyamonde Daniel . Katie Woo is an award-winning series for young readers. Katie’s series contains short sentences and nice illustrations for students just beginning chapter books. Her covers are as vivid and inviting as her stories! Katie is in first grade and she’s had to deal with the loss of a beloved pet , a bully and lying . I love that likeable series features an Asian protagonist, though it is sadly one of the few I’ve ever seen that does so. http://substitutesftw.blogspot.com/2011/06/diverse-book-series-for-young-readers.html" - Substitutes, FTW! blog

Well-Read Reviews blog - Allison

"I just met Katie Woo for the first time. She’s a kid with depth to her character and real feelings and best of all, it teaches our young readers great lessons for every day life. . . .Between the well-written moral lessons and the enjoyable pictures Katie Woo Rules the School is a gem for children everywhere." - Well-Read Reviews blog

"READ IT IF: You like beautifully illustrated children's books. You are looking for a book with an Asian-American main character. You like books that have more than one story in them." - Second Bookshelf on the Right blog

Concert Katie blog - Katie Wanta

"I think this book is great for younger kids, and definitely teaches some great lessons about school and how to treat and act around your classmates.  They would also be easy readers if your child is just learning to read and wants to read it on their own." - Concert Katie blog

Crowding the Book Truck blog - Caroline Land

"This was my first time reading a Katie Woo book, and I quite enjoyed it. Both she and the books have a Ramona Quimby vibe to them; Katie isn't perfect but she tries to do what's right, and the books look at tough issues (and real issues that kids face) without losing heart and warmth. . . .This looks like a great series for young readers and if, like me, you're new to the series, this collection of stories is a great way to get yourself introduced to Katie Woo's world." - Crowding the Book Truck blog

Kids Book Korner blog - Jenifer Nelissen

"There are very good lessons to be learned from Katie's experiences. . . .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." - Kids Book Korner blog

Heaven is Sort of a Library blog - Marissa

"...a nice new entry in this field which has been dominated by another bespectacled girl, Junie B. Jones, for some time now. . . .If you've burned through Junie B. but aren't quite ready for Ivy and Bean or (my favorite) Ramona, Katie Woo may be your go-to girl." - Heaven is Sort of a Library blog

NetGalley Review - Pat Swiatek

"Great chapter book for early readers, emerging readers, as well as those needing a little extra practice in reading.  Not only were the sentences and words used just the right length and difficulty, the content was very relevant for this day and age (working cooperatively, bullying, helping others).  This will allow for many connections to be made by the child reading the book." - NetGalley Review

Kids Books Central - Francesca Amendolia

"...an early-reader with lovely watercolor illustrations and simple text, perfect for those readers just risking the giant step away from picture books. . . .A young reader would find Katie Woo a sympathetic heroine, and having read a proper book, no doubt glow with pride at her achievement, and what more could anyone ask for?" - Kids Books Central

Mundie Kids Children's Book Review blog

"A fun read with super cute illustrations. This was our first Katie Woo book to read, and now I can see why this series is so popular with younger readers. . . .Written in an engaging chapter book style made it easy to follow along and enjoyable for my daughter. Once she starts learning how to read on her own, this will be a book she'll easily be able to sit and read by herself. With it's cute illustrations and short paragraphs on each page, Katie Woo fans will be sure to enjoy this new release." - Mundie Kids Children's Book Review blog

NetGalley Review - Joel Smith

"Some cheerful chapter-book guidance. . . .Katie is a normal, engaging and realistic kid whose reactions and thoughts seem authentic. She's not a genius or weirdly mature, or a wiseacre. She's just a basically decent kid who's dealing with stuff. I can support that and it seems likely that a chapter reader could identify with that." - NetGalley Review

Read, Review, Smile blog - Elizabeth Marie

"This book follows Katie Woo through 4 different school stories. Katie and the Class Pet, No More Teasing, The Big Life, Star of the Show. This book is great for those who are staring to read. I also liked the crafts at the end of the book, each related to a story in the book." - Read, Review, Smile blog

"I would definitely read more Katie Woo stories. They are short and cute, so adorable. Also, I think that all children would enjoy them, as would parents, since they all have a moral and teach you something admirable." - NetGalley Review

Books Beside My Bed blog - Karen

"This is a series of books that will help children learn some lessons but Katie Woo is also a cute kid that will have children giggling. There are also crafts at the end that corresponds with each story. My favorite is how to make a guinea pig out of a sock!" - Books Beside My Bed blog

Kids Book Central - C.J. Redwine

"KATIE WOO RULES THE SCHOOL reminds me of books I used to read in grade school. I remember finding each chapter, with its new scenario, endlessly fascinating, and I think young readers will feel the same way about Katie Woo. . . .I really enjoyed this book. The illustrations are lovely, the kids in Katie's classroom are diverse, and the situations she faces ring true for elementary school." - Kids Book Central
