I wish I could offer something positive, but as a parent, I can't recommend any of the books in this series. (They were given to us by a friend and I'm getting rid of them as quickly as I can sneak them away from my child, who loves them unfortunately). They are poorly written and formulaic. The characters are stereotypes and never develop in any way. There is the Bully, the Princess, the Tomboy, the Brain and our 'Hero' the mediocre kid Freddy who admires some of his friends but never thinks of ...more

This was a great book to read about bullying and would be great to begin a discussion in my future classroom. This book could be used to give a student a perspective on how to react or treat bullies and that in the end the person bullying just wants to fit in. I was glad that Freddy and Max were able to be on the team together. I also like that the author of these books was a teacher first so she knows what to write and how to write to help students in life and in reading.

Freddy, urged by his good friend Jessie, decides to tryout for the last remaining spot on the Hammerheads hockey team. But bully, Max Sellars, wants that spot too. Can he convince his mom and win the spot from tough guy Max.

I read this book aloud to my 1st grade classes at the end of the year and they loved it. It was a great way to introduce the series.

This book is fun because there is a bully in the class called Max.The Hammer heads the hockey team needs 1 more player. Max and Jessie are having a bet of who will get the spot.alert alert: they both win because 1 player dropped out
The mom was a little too over protective, and the dad "barks/snaps" at his children a bit too often. Freddy doesn't have a lot of character development. Not a favorite.

it was a good book. i thought it ws cool how jessi stuck out for freddy, and i think girls can can do sports like hocky too, so it was mean how max made fun of her.

This book addressed a few issues such as bullying and not giving up on your goals. I liked that the illustrator has 'fin' in every picture. Freddy really likes sharks, so he tries out for a hockey team called hammerheads. He is fighting for one spot on the team and the class bully is fighting for the same spot. There are shark facts in the back of the book along with a mad lib.
Book 4 in the Ready, Freddy series. Typical series book appropriate for probably 2nd grade or younger. Story is about a 1st grader dealing with a bully, a miserable older sister, and an overprotective mom. Perfectly nice book for boys, especially those who are into sports--this one talks about ice hockey.
Another great adventure in the Ready Freddy series. Freddy wants to join the local hockey team, but first he has to deal with the class bully. Funny and interesting, this story should keep beginning readers enjoying the book.
This time Freddy is trying to get on a hocky team even though it is his mothers nightmare. The biggest bully in the school is trying out against him. Grades 2+
This a nice book. Good for passing time since it is very short but whenever i forget my book at school i imidietly turn to this series
Freddy joins a ice hokey team!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My son really enjoys the Ready Freddy books.
Read along with Blake to quiz him.
