PickyKidPix loves Katie Woo even though she discovered this series in 5th grade while messing around in her school library. She encouraged me to continue with the Katie Woo book giveaways because she wants to spread the love, and copies come my way that land in her room. I told her that a spinoff series about Pedro was coming out. She approved.
In celebration of the new Katie Woo spinoff series, Pedro, I’m doing a huge giveaway!
EIGHT Winners for Katie Woo or Pedro Early Chapter Book Giveaway
FIVE winners will each get three Katie Woo books! This makes a nice summer reading package for ages 6 and up!
Katie Woo & Friends by Fran Manushkin
These are the things that Katie Woo and my daughter, PickyKidPix, have in common:
- They can be thoughtless towards their friends.
- They play soccer.
- They were late to lose their baby teeth (which drove them crazy).
- They both have Golden Retrievers.
Katie Woo fans can use these writing prompts on the beautifully illustrated pages to draw, doodle, write stories and hatch plans. [journal with writing prompts, ages 6 and up]
Katie doesn’t always behave well herself. When Jake loses his new toy airplane, Katie has something to do with that but it’s only when Jake is ready to cry that she owns up to her toy theft. Young readers can relate to Katie Woo as a real person who makes both good and bad decisions. I think that is is the appeal of this series. [early chapter book, ages 6 and up]
THREE Winners for ARC copy of Pedro: First Grade Hero by Fran Manushkin
First grade is full of ups and downs for Pedro. First his bug project for school goes awry when his brother lets his insects out. Things look up when he works hard at soccer and gets chosen for goalie! Pedro starts a mystery club with Katie Woo and JoJo which turns out to be a good thing because his family keeps losing their stuff. The class election pits Pedro against his friend Katie Woo. Who will win? This gentle early chapter book reflects real life for early elementary school kids. They will relate to the conflicts that Pedro faces and feel like they’ve made a new friend.
