Watch out, Junie, there's a new kid on the block! It's Freddy Thresher, a first grader who knows it's a jungle out there. A new chapter book series written by an elementary teacher who's seen it all! Freddy Thresher has a problem: a really, really, big problem. He never has anything cool to bring for show-and-tell. This week, his best friend, Robbie, has brought the most amazing artifact to share: a real alligator head. How will Freddy come up with anything as cool as that? Good news! Later that day, he finds something very unusual and exciting. If only he can get it to school without his mom, "The Neat Freak," finding out, Freddy will be the King of Show-and-Tell!

This book speaks kid¿s language without being ungrammatical. I read it to a 2nd grade class where I volunteer and they couldn¿t wait for the next session and for further Freddy Thresher adventures. They also love finding the word ¿fin¿ hidden every illustration.
Really good!!!!!!! By Mike
Teachers im an elementry student and i hate school so wont you know we hate reading !!!!!!!!!!!!!! I dont mean that star
I'm an elementary school teacher and I've used the Freddy books for small book clubs. Freddy is a likable character. In each book there is a problem he's confronted with, and the students can usually relate to it in some way. It's easy to engage the students in conversations about character traits, making predictions, and evaluating character behavior. An added treat is that each illustration has the word "fin" hidden in it, and the kids love trying to find it.
