Catfish Kate and the sweet Swamp band was a short picture book about a southern band trying to play at the swamp till another crew came into town. The book was not a favorite of mine. The only thing I really like was the repetition of words which made it fun to read out loud to the students. Other than that there was nothing thrilling about this book that would make me what to teach or read it to my children. ( )

This book is about down south music. It has the frogs and animals making really loud music, but it disturbs their neighbors. It's got the soul of the music, but also shows how you must be courteous to your neighbors and be willing to compromise! ( )

A story about two groups trying to be in the same area but wanting very different things. They are able to overcome their differences and find a way to make everyone happy. Love the way everything rhymes and how they incorporate lots of sounds in the text. ( )

Catfish Kate and her band of swamp animal girls play music under the moon. The near by skunk boys do not like this because they prefer quiet to read. They are all about to fight to decide when Kate decides there must be a compromise. The other characters do not know what a compromise is but when Kate and her girls come back to stuff cattail fluff in their ears they understand. Now, the girls can play their loud music and the boys can have quiet and read. This is a really cute book I would like to share with my students. One big topic it can be used for is compromise. The book pretty much defines this word with its pictures and actions. It could help teach them what compromise is, how to use it, and why it works. Also, I could use this book when talking about New Orleans music just because I think it would be fitting since the musicians live in a swamp. ( )

This is about swamp animals that like to play music under the moon. These other animals come in who do not like it, but in the end they compromise. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 141694026X, Hardcover)

Catfish Kate and her all-girl band liven up the bayou with their rockin’ tunes, but the Skunktail Boys are demanding a little peace and quiet. The boys want to read. The girls want to play. And the swamp’s not big enough for the both of them! Or is it? A rhythmic read-aloud about the power of compromise from bestselling author Sarah Weeks. Catfish Kate is a pure swampy delight, full of sass appeal for crooners, rockers, and readers alike.

While Catfish Kate and her friends are making sweet swamp music, Skink and his Skunktail boys are trying to read and they demand that the girls be quiet, but Kate finds a clever compromise.
