I tend to pick up the books in this series when the library doesn't have books in the other few early chapter book series that I read. The main character, Freddy, is amusing, though I'm not a fan of his parents, particularly his obsessively tidy mother (she was less annoying in this book than in some others). The story in this book had a good message, and I always like trying to find the word FIN somewhere in the illustrations. All in all, I thought this was one of the better in the series. Reco ...more

There aren’t many children’s books with a Thanksgiving theme so I was happy when my daughter brought this book home from her school’s library. She’s five years old and loves the Ready Freddie book series. This book was a fun book for us to read together. The only thing I don’t like is that some of the kids call each other names. I was worried that my daughter would start calling her brothers those names, but luckily she didn’t. This is a great middle grade series for both boys and girls.

The previous first grade teacher (who retired)had this in her stash of books, so I decided to read it to my class. It was OK. A little too much name calling for my taste, but a couple of good lessons.

This would be a great book for first and second graders. This chapter book has minimal pictures, but still allows students to enjoy the book. Part of the "Ready, Freddy!" reading series, this would be a great book to have in the classroom for early readers.

The plot is very similar to Marc Brown's Arthur's Thanksgiving - Freddy gets the dreaded role of the Thanksgiving turkey. My 6 year-old loves this series.
Recommended by second grandson as BWB challenge of a book recommended by someone 30 yr younger or older.

Fine read aloud. Probably won't make it a yearly tradition or anything.

This would be good to demonstrate a play with your classroom. It's good to use to discuss pilgrims, and then have the students themselves perform a play for their parents!

Suzzie teased Freddy about being the turkey that it was a bad part but it wasn't Freddy figured out to be a dancing turkey by the principal.

My second graders enjoyed Freddy!

Okay, Ready, Freddy was neither as good nor as lame as I thought it would be. Klein doesn't quite seem to have a handle on children here, but kids would still read it.

My girls really liked it... PB (6) moreso than Mei Mei (3.5). I think we will have to look into more Ready Freddy books.

Reid is my reader.
we take turns with each page and I love hearing the inflections in my sons voice.

if you have a 1st/2nd grader the Freddy books are a must.
