Kindergarten-Grade 4-- Kate, who was featured in Your Best Friend, Kate (1989) and Kate Heads West (1990, both Bradbury), is writing again, in her brisk epistolary style. Her family has moved to Seattle, but they do not stay at home for long. Over the course of a year, they go south to Hollywood, north to Ketchikan, west to Honolulu, and visit many points in between. When she is not traveling, her letters to her friend Lucy in New Jersey describe all that she is discovering about her new home. She quickly conquers her ``new kid'' jitters, which is not surprising for a girl who is so at home in every port. Kate's letters and the accompanying illustrations effortlessly impart information to readers; it's not enough for reports, but fine as a handy child-paced guidebook or an exercise in the art of letter writing. Brisson's : ``Kate'' books could be used creatively with Vera and Jennifer Williams's more fanciful Stringbean's Trip to the Shining Sea (Greenwillow, 1988). Their examples might enliven even the deadly ``How I spent my summer vacation'' assignment. --Carla Kozak, San Francisco Public Library
