Katy Did It
Katy the katydid's mom tells her to "hop outside, but don't get into trouble." Unfortunately for Katy, it's not quite that easy. She hops through a series of mishaps which are made worse by her brother Lou who doesn't hesitate to say "Katy did it!" when an accident is discovered. All is not lost however, when Katy finds her hopping is needed to lend a helping hand.
Katy Did It, written and illustrated by Lorianne Siomades, is a vibrant book that will make it easy for K-2 students to make text-to-self connections. I would also read it to lead discussions on tattling or sibling rivalries which are always rich topics with elementary students.
