Great collection of stories for the young transitional reader - a stepping stone to Junie B, Judy Moody, and Ramona.

Katie Woo is so funny. She wanted a pony for the class pet but Ms. Winkle said it’s too big. Jojo wanted a hamster for the class pet and Ms. Winkle said we will see. Then Pedro said I want a turtle and Rodeo said I want a porcupine. At last they settled with turtle. Everybody wanted to take the class pet home, but Katie was the one who got picked.

When I first saw this title I thought Katie Woo of beginning reader fame was branching out into a new intermediate chapter book format. However, now that I have read it I realize this is just a collection of four of her previous titles. That being said, it will be a good challenge for beginning readers as they are just starting into longer almost chapter books. Katie Woo deals with typical kid problems at school. She helps take care of the class pet with some interesting consequences. She gets t ...more

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. This particular book is a great collection of 4 short stories about Katie and her daily adventures. 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 illustrat ...more

Katie Woo might seem like a normal student, but she is actually pretty extraordinary. She can become the star of the show dressed as a worm, smile her way through an annoying bully's taunts, keep the class pet safe and happy, and tell the truth when it might be easier to lie. Katie is a energetic and spunky character that is sure to please many readers.

This is a good book for those kiddos who are a little bit above picture book level but not quiet ready for chapter books. Katie Woo Rules the School has several small stories about Katie and her classmates that kids will enjoy.

Solid do-the-right-thing tales with a neat cast of characters. It would be fun to compare the Katie Woo version of The Princess & the Frog with Marty McGuire's version.

Recommends it for: Very early readers
Very basic language and not too exciting, but excellent for very early readers - I don't think it would hold the attention of anyone over 7, though.

While I felt this book was just okay, I did like how Katie was able to resolve the problems she faced through out the book.
