Contributor Bio(s): Fran Manushkin is the author of many popular picture books, including "How Mama Brought the Spring"; "Baby, Come Out!"; "Latkes and Applesauce: A Hanukkah Story"; and "The Tushy Book". There is a real Katie Woo she's Fran's great-niece but she never gets in half the trouble of the Katie Woo in the books. Fran writes on her beloved MacBook in New York City.

Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2015 Spring)
Katie resents--and nearly sabotages--a rival dancer in Keep Dancing and tries to earn her substitute teacher's favor in Fancy Substitute. Both cheerfully illustrated stories offer short chapters that allow young readers to practice a variety of sentence structures. Discussion questions, writing prompts, and a kid-friendly art project conclude each book. Glos. [Review covers these Katie Woo titles: Katie and the Fancy Substitute and Keep Dancing, Katie.]
