We found this book while hunting for books for Kevin to read himself. I think it was a good fit for him. It had a lot of sight words and phonetic words. The story was cute. I probably wouldn't enjoy reading it to my kids over and over again, but it was a lot better than the ones Kevin brings home from school.

Recommends it for: early reader, 4 - 6 year olds
Very engaging early reader! My kid pored over the colorful, catchy illustrations and he loved the juxtaposing of Fred and Ted. In my opinion not quite up there with P.D. Eastman's original work, such as our favorite Go, Dog. Go!, but it's a good sequel to Big Dog . . . Little Dog. As far as early readers go, it's a great choice, no words to stumble on.
Good good good

Bad bad bad....

Good good good...

I liked the book because it's good!

;) :P ):(: :0 ooh no! Yay!!!
My son loved reading this book to me. It definitely captivated him and he giggled through the whole book.
I was amused at the possibility of reading into this as a pro-vegan book. Plus, the kiddo was entertained.
I read this book a billion times but it is still good

A good introduction to reading, this book has a lot of opposites and the pictures help a young reader figure out what is going on. Not the most compelling story, but it's colorful and a good way to practice reading. The illustrations are cartoonish and certainly will engage young children.
Miss Pippi the Librarian
Simple and straightforward sentences for beginning readers. The story works well for young audiences. It is easy to predict the opposite actions depicted.

Theme: camping
Additional themes: dogs, opposites

Reviewed from a library copy.
It's not my favorite.

And I do kinda agree that it's not anywhere near as good as the original.


My nieces love it. They request it often, and it's not *that* bad.

That's good enough for me!
When my oldest saw the cover of this book he said, "Oh look, Mom! It's Go Dog!" While not as good as Go, Dog, Go, in my honest opinion, this is a cute book on opposites that my boys enjoyed.
My son loves this book probably because he can relate because he loves to go camping. This book lacks the charming rhythms of P.D. Eastman's books but it feels like a fitting tribute

As everyone else has said, not as great as the original. And yet, still great fun. Fred and Ted teach us about opposites, and also move on to things such as "fast" versus "faster."

I find this a little boring to read, but it's cute enough and my kids really like it. And it's piqued their interest in camping, which is something we haven't done with them yet.
Took a pile of books about camping on our family trip. This was our favorite. Very funny!
My 2 year old LOVES this book!!! And I think it is really cute!!
We read it all the time!!
Half the time Fred seems like a jerk, and the other half Ted seems like a jerk.
Little man loves this book right now.
One of Conner's favorite reads...
