Overview

Freddy can't wait for all the toys, toys, toys he put on Christmas list! He's sure Santa will bring him everything he's wishing for. But when Freddy learns not every kid is as lucky as he is, he starts to wonder. Could giving presents be as much fun as getting them?

First-grade and kindergarten teacher Abby Klein has been teaching for almost twenty years, and she brings her first-hand knowledge of children to this popular series. As well, she tailors each story and the language in it for new readers--using just the right words as well as the issues that are most important to children this age.

For extra fun, the word "fin" is hidden in every illustration, and children will have a good time playing the games in "Freddy's Fun Pages" at the end of the book. Attention shark lovers! Freddy Thresher is a first-grade expert on sharks, and each book features cool facts about sharks as an added bonus.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Patricia Williamson
Freddy is ready for Christmas. He has his list and he's checking it twice. Everything is a go for a fantastic time and Freddy is really looking forward to getting everything he has asked for. Freddy has even searched, and found his gifts in his parents' closet. His sister, who loves to find Freddy in trouble, sees him searching and threatens to tell but then takes back the threat as they proceed to enjoy the thought of what is to come on December 25th. Things move forward in a very traditional way for Freddy until a friend from school gives him a different perspective and within it Freddy learns the true meaning of giving and getting. Abby Klein infuses entertainment with a good story. In every illustration the reader is encouraged to find the word "fin" within the illustration and there is information about sharks, crafts that go with the theme of the book and a word find. This is a great first reader for any child who enjoys and looks forward to the upcoming holiday season. Reviewer: Patricia Williamson
