Katie-Jane children’s books

Katie-Jane books are written from my experiences growing up and making sense of life and my feelings. It is important to me that children realise they are not alone in the ways they feel – and that they feel accepted and acknowledged within themselves. I hope these books are able to help your child in this way!

“Just thought I would let you know have received books and shared with my students. Another teacher was in the class today as I was sharing ‘The Cat Got My Tongue’ and she loved the book and could not believe how engaged all the children were, understanding and talking afterwards about how they would/could deal with this feeling in the class. This is a class of 42,  Year 2 and 3 children so is wonderful that they ‘got it’.” Wendy Halvorsen, teacher, New Zealand

Hi Kathryn, Just received and read the three books you have sent thank you . I think they are excellent. Love the themes of you walking and talking in nature. Your character is SO appealing. The rhyming scheme really works and I love the messages you are getting across. So easy for children to relate to. As I have mentioned before love the illustrations especially the facial expressions. Very likeable. Taking them to school tomorrow ! Thank you best wishes Lynne” Lynne O’Neil, teacher, UK


” … your wonderful book – it can be very hard to find children’s books that have good messages that are also fun and not moralistic.” Sue Bradshaw, Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist
