I like that the author is trying to distinguish "mean" behavior, but I wish the message of the book wasn't necessarily about sharing or "bossiness," but rather about "leadership skills" for girls. I'm tired of girls being called bossy when they have a strong personality, it's an annoying trait of children's books.
3.25 stars Katie Woo is a meanie. She doesn't share, it is all about her. Once her rudeness is pointed out, she is quick to change her ways! I good book about being bossy and friendship and forgiveness!

Thought this was a great bridge between an early reader and a chapter book. Resolution came a bit fast.
Katie spends a day at the beach being obnoxious and awful to her friends, her friends don't like it. The end. Certainly easy-to-read, but not pleasant to do so.
Yay! A multicultural easy-reader written by white people.
Great for early readers up to a few sentences per page
