Fast Freddy

51iIAaqG6EL._SY384_BO1,204,203,200_Fast Freddy, written by Lee Ann Mancini, is about a sea animal that has the head of a shark and the body of an octopus. Freddy moves to a new school of fish. He gets picked on because he is different from the rest. But after the teacher tells the class that she is different too, she is a mermaid, half human and half fish the class is more accepting of him. The story also points out that we all have different talents, Freddy’s is that he is a really fast swimmer..

This is a good book for helping to teach children about others who are different. The pictures are very colorful and pretty. Each picture has a fish symbol on it that will help engage young children by having them look for it. The story is a very nice story, however, I felt the prayer was a little out of place without any other Christian aspect in the book.

I received a copy of the book from Book Club Network in exchange for an honest review.

I give this book a 4.5

ISBN 16: 9780578140766
