From the Series Hattie

  • Interest Level: Grade 2 - Grade 5
  • Reading Level: Grade 3

Hattie is a street-smart country girl in her first year of school. She lives just outside of nowhere, right next to no one at all. Luckily she’s starting school and that brings new adventures.

Hattie gets her first swimming badge, falls madly in love with a hermit crab, and meets a best friend. Sometimes things go wrong—like when the hairdresser cuts her hair into stumps just in time for school photos.

Hattie is funny, lively and sympathetic chapter book, perfect for reading aloud and for newly independent readers.
