This book is geared towards children ages 5-8 years of age. It is children's picture book. This book is about Fred and Ted and the differences they discover all while going on a camping trip together. It is a very fun and inviting story! The plot of this book is compelling because Fred and Ted have a dramatic height difference and the story shows how that can help or hinder a person. It takes the time to show how differences make us different but does not change that we are unique and can be fri ...more

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.

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.

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.

But....

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

That's good enough for me!

This was a neat I can read it all by myself book. Talking about opposites as Fred and Ted go camping and exploring all the things that go along with camping.

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.

I was amused at the possibility of reading into this as a pro-vegan book. Plus, the kiddo was entertained.

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

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.

Half the time Fred seems like a jerk, and the other half Ted seems like a jerk.

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."
