For Civic Minded Early Readers: Helping Mayor Patty by Manushkin

#KatieWoosNeighborhood #NetGalley

This entry in the Katie Woo’s Neighborhood series is for beginning readers.  It is a short chapter book with illustrations.  I especially liked the map of Katie Woo’s community at the beginning of the story.

Katie Woo’s aunt has become mayor.  This gives Patty a chance to see how government works and how decisions are made.  Luckily Mayor Patty is responsive to her voters’ needs.

The book ends with several special sections that dig more deeply into how city government works.  This will be helpful to young students who have not yet learned how city government works.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for another good entry in this series for new readers.
