What Katy Did | [Susan Coolidge]

What Katy Did

Ever since her mother died, 12-year-old Katy has attempted to look after her five younger brothers and sisters. Her father, Dr. Carr, depends on her to set a good example while he takes care of patients. But no matter how hard Katy tries to be good, trouble always finds her. She tears all her dresses and breaks the dishes. She forgets to do her homework, so she gets bad grades. And her quick temper hurts the feelings of those she loves the most. But the day she refuses to listen when Aunt Izzie forbids her to use the new swing changes her life forever.

Publisher's Summary

Ever since her mother died, 12-year-old Katy has attempted to look after her five younger brothers and sisters. Her father, Dr. Carr, depends on her to set a good example while he takes care of patients. But no matter how hard Katy tries to be good, trouble always finds her. She tears all her dresses and breaks the dishes. She forgets to do her homework, so she gets bad grades. And her quick temper hurts the feelings of those she loves the most. But the day she refuses to listen when Aunt Izzie forbids her to use the new swing changes her life forever.

Novelist Susan Coolidge based tall, impatient Katy on herself, and the other fun-loving characters on her own family. Reminiscent of Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women, this classic story of an irrepressible young girl learning some of life’s most difficult lessons has charmed readers for generations. Barbara Caruso provides the perfect voice for Katy as she savors triumphs and faces disappointments.

    Story
    "A Childhood Favorite"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would. I read this when I was about 11. It is for older children but even as an adult I enjoyed listening to it again. I had several brothers and sisters so I could very much relate to this book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It is a very sweet story and one that encouraged me to be good as a child.
