Creatures Great and Small – Katydid, She Did


My friend found this katydid in our garden last spring or so.  She likes bugs and snakes – yes, likes them.  She likes sugar and spice too, but she’s definitely a creepy crawly enthusiast. :-)

This is a rather random post, and rather than discuss katydids, I’m going to talk about books.  Have you ever read the Katy Did books by Susan Coolidge?  I discovered them a few years ago, and I enjoyed them so much!  I wish I’d had them as a girl, but better late than never, right?  :-)  My mom read them also and quite enjoyed them too.

You can find them free here in several formats or to read online:

What Katy Did
What Katy Did At School
What Katy Did Next
In the High Valley

This is in the proper order for reading them, by the way.

As I said before, I always like the stories about home makers who make a pleasant living space on a shoe string.  These books had that appeal, and I especially like Clover.  If you happen to enjoy vintage girls’ fiction, you might want to find out what Katydid.  :-)
