Katie Woo is a sweet girl who is nervous about staying the night at her grandparents for the first time. It is okay in the day, but at night, it gets dark. The big bed is just so high, and the walls are a yucky color. This is the perfect book to read to your little girl before you send her off to stay the night with her grandparents for the first time. They will know that is okay to get scared, and maybe call you if needed. This is also a decent easy reader book for your little girl. The text is big, and half the page tends to be a picture of Katie Woo with her grandparents. The author tries to make some jokes, which I am sure little kids will find funny. While this is not a must-read, it is a perfect practice chapter book for little girls. I do not think little boys will want read about a little girl. Recommended as an additional purchase for readers 5-7, but as a definite purchase if you need multicultural characters.
