I kind of liked this book because it was kind of sad...SIKE!I'm just kidding but anyways its about this lil kid that is having athanksgiving thingy with his class and they had to pick parts by picking it out of the hat so this kid named freddy was worried dat he might get tha turkey part and that everybody was gonna make fun of him. she said you get wat you get and you dont get upset and so finally the day came and they had to pick their parts and guess wat da kid gets........da TURKEY!!!!!@!!!! ...more
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
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.
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.
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.
it was a good book and I really liked it!!!!!!!
Read with my 6yo son.
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 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!
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.
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.
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.
Fine read aloud. Probably won't make it a yearly tradition or anything.
