Ready Freddy Books

Tooth Trouble is the first installment in the Freddy Ready book series. In this book, the author introduces the reader to Fredy Thresher a first grade student who is obsessed by sharks. However, apart from being obsessed with sharks, the first grader is also obsessed with losing his first tooth. Fredy happens to be the only kid in his class with milk teeth. Freddy tries to take out a tooth using an old tooth removal technique known as the tooth and doorknob method. Due to the fact that he can hardly tie his own shoes, Freddy plans to tape a string to his tooth. However, when he was trying to tape the string to his tooth, his mother interrupted him in the process. Freddy reacts by stashing both the tape and string in his mouth.

One day when Freddy was in school, he picked up a fight with one of the school bullies. He believed that when he was going to be punched in the mouth with the bully, he was going to lose a teeth. However, this does not go as planned. It does not take long before Freddy loses his teeth when taking ice-cream and swallows the tooth accidentally.

Just like the first book, the protagonist in the King of Show and Tell is Freddy, who is more than determined to find a great item for the show and tell session. However, he is completely clueless about what he should bring. The book has elements of jealousy especially when a friend brings the head of an alligator to class. It is a great thing that the author has infused the feelings of jealousy in the book, showing the reader that it is exceedingly normal to feel this way. The author’s plot becomes exceedingly complicated when Freddy finds what he wants to bring to the show and tell session. His item is more lively than the alligator head. Despite the fact that this is a book that is meant or four-year-old kids, you are definitely going to discover a number of Spanish words. A great number of these words are used all over. However, we just do not pay attention to these words. You will also get to know the differences in the phrasing and the wording. When it comes to the overall story, you are definitely going to love the simplicity of the plot. This book is highly recommended for the young readers.

Don’t Sit on My Lunch is also another excellent read. The book begins as Freddy, and his friends are going for lunch. Once they arrive at the school’s cafeteria, Max the school’s bully decides to push Max off the bench. Then Max goes towards Jesse and asks her where she bought her jersey from. Jesse informs Max that she used to be a hockey player and the jersey that she had on, was the official uniform for her hockey team. She tells Freddy that her team had an open slot and she believed that Freddy was going to be an ideal candidate. On that night while having dinner, Freddie asks his parents whether he could try out for the hockey team and they agreed.

After they had finished dinner, Freddy called Jesse and told her the good news. Jesse told Freddie that he could go to their house on the next day after school hours. That night Freddy was more than happy as he was waiting to watch his favorite program. On the following day, Freddie asked Jesse what they were going to do. Jesse told Freddie that she was going to teach him how to shoot a goal. After which she was going to show him a trick that she had come up with. Jesse was extremely happy, but first, he had to put on his training gear. Freddie rushed back into their house only to find his sister in bathroom. He knocked the door, and his sister lets him into the room. As he was leaving, his sister gave him her lucky seashell. The tryout for the team were extremely hard. When the coach finally spoke, he said, that there was a person on the team who had quit. Now, the team had two open slots. Who exactly is going to make into the team and are they going to like each other?

The author explores several concepts in this book such as bullying. This book is ideal for first, second and third graders because Freddy is the main character and also the narrator of the story. He conveys his feelings and thoughts, which are exceedingly similar to the children of his age. You may end up feeling sorry for Freddie, when he is bullied by Max and also when he cheers him to be the person to be selected for the open slot in the hockey team. With that said, Ready Freddy is an excellent series for children. It will not only keep them entertained but it will also show them that whatever they are going through is quite normal for children of their age.
