“Kate the Great”, by Suzy Becker, is a book about a 5th grade girl who is in her last year of elementary school. Kate has to face many problems while at school.

Kate is in Mrs.Blocks fifth grade class. The biggest problem Kate has to face is her arch enemy, Nora Klein. Nora isn’t a people person. She likes being on her own, but when Kate ends up in the same pod, things get complicated.

Kate also has to face another problem, she forgot her book report. Kate had to finish a biography report, and completed it with her friend. The day of presenting, Kate forgets the book report at home. When Kate’s dad brings her the book report, Kate finds out that her dog ate her homework.

Kate also loves art, but when it comes to going to Mrs.Petty’s art class Kate is bored. Mrs. Petty wants everybody to do their art exactly like hers. Kate thinks that they should be able to do the assignment how they want to. Kate gets detention for drawing her nose’s differently than Mrs. Petty.

Coming to school means having fun too. Don’t you think it would be fun if you had A,B,C,D,E,F,G, days for specials and your art day was on the ‘F’ day? When your teacher asks,“What specials do we have today class?” and everybody breaks out laughing because on the schedule it says “Fart”. That is the kind of amusement Kate has during school.

 

I would recommend this book because it is all about the adventures you might have to face in your own fifth grade class. I would suggest that every 5th grader should read, “Kate the Great”. There were many things that I could relate to being a 5th grader.
