What Katy Did by Susan Coolidge is a classic much loved by adults and children alike.

Katy Carr intends to be beautiful and beloved and as sweet as an angel one day. For now, though, her hair is forever in a tangle, her dress is always torn and she doesn't care at all for being called 'good'. But then a terrible accident happens and Katy must find the courage to remember her daydreams and the delightful plans she once schemed; for when she is grown up she wants to do something grand . . .

A wonderful, family story, with an inspiring introduction from the hugely popular Cathy Cassidy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Classic My mum read this to me when I was little. Then I read it (and the sequels) to myself when I got older. Now I am reading it to my 6-year-old twins and they are loving it. As a kid, I didn't feel lectured by reading it, but as a mother, I appreciate the great life lessons that stem from it. Lots of room to explain what life was like in the olden days, and what some big/unusual words mean, too.
