This rating is based off the Spanish translated version of this book, "El Rey de las Sorpresas." I'm not a native Spanish speaker/reader, however Spanish is one of my B languages.

For a book that is meant for 4-8 year olds, I actually discovered many Spanish words I didn't know. However, I found that these words were words that are not commonly used where I live in the midwest, where we mostly have central American native speakers. An example of one word I didn't recognize was "nevera," which me

Freddy always wanted to be the king of show and tell. But he normally had nothing to bring. So he would bring things from his shark collection. Until one day he found a bird that fell out of a nest and got a broken wing. So Freddy decided to keep it for show and tell. The one problem is that his parents don't like animals in the house so Freddy needs to keep it a secret.

Uh-oh! Freddy`s doing show and tell on Monday, nothing to bring in... at least he thinks he doesn`t. Then Robbie and him find a little bird with a broken wing. When he brings it in to show and tell, it peeps and peeps and peeps! Then the first grade bully, Max gets in trouble and Freddy speaks up. It`s wonderful that Max doesn`t get in trouble... for once. ...more

This book was about a little boy who wanted to bring something cool to show and tell. And he did. He was the King of Show and Tell in the end. My only concern was that it had a bit of disrespectful language in it. But I guess no more that what is normal these days. Just not exactly what I would like as a parent. But my son loved it.

This series is engaging for young minds, secretly teaching them things about real life, such as what baby birds eat, what do they drink, etc. Many resources available online to utilize for comprehension checks as well. Looking forward to reading all books in this series with my five year old or allowing him to read them on his own.

This is not amazing literature, but my 5 year old son enjoyed it. He learned some things from the book and I liked it better than Junie B. Jones or Magic Tree House. My 7 year old son is cruising through most of these Ready Freddy books on his own so I wanted to read one myself.
The Reading Countess
Youngest and I are zooming through this series. We like how there are plenty of pictures to keep (ahem) "us" hooked into the story. The characters are so believable that Abby Klein is either a former teacher or has a really good ear for what is currently being said in the classroom.

I really enjoy this series and this is another great one. Freddy is worried he won't have anything "cool" to show to next week's show-n-tell at school. Great fun with bonus hide-n-search illustrations included! Great for beginner readers.

I was not particularly fond of this book. I was disturbed by some of the word usage and ideas. The overall idea of writing a book about a boy worrying about what he will bring for show-and-tell and finding something cool is a good idea.

This book demonstrates the crazy things that students will bring to show-and-tell, but that every object they bring has a story behind it. Those objects have a personal meaning to the students.
