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's the only one in his class who hasn't lost a tooth! All of the other students in Mrs. Wushy's first grade have signed their names on the Big Tooth, and Freddy's determined to get his name on it, too. So when Max "The Meanie" Sellars calls Freddy a baby, Freddy decides he's going to lose that tooth one way or another, even if it means getting punched in the face at recess, or even bigger trouble, with Mom!

The story has a good theme of representing everyday challenges of getting along with others and sharing your life with them. Also, the reality that every child faces stressful situations, whether or not adults think they should or shouldn't get stressed. The story can provide time for talking with kids or just let the story do the teaching of life lessons.

Our 9 year old has trouble reading and he doesn't like to. Or should I say didn't like to now he is hooked and his reading is improving everyday. He comes to us and asks to read. Thank Abby.

I am a second grade teacher and after reading Ready Freddy Turkey Trouble aloud to the class they are begging for more. They are so excited about reading. If you like Ready Freddy you may also like the Jake Drake series.

I have a 7 year old that needs help with reading. He wasn't really interested in books until we found this series. He is willing to read now because these books are so funny! I highly recommend this series to anybody that is struggling to get their kids interested in reading. These books will do it! Thanks Abby! Keep writing these awesome books!

I was looking for the first chapter books for my 6 years old. And found Ready Harry 'tooth trouble ' and my little one read it in three hours straight. Did not need my help to read it. Loved it, couldn't stop reading it. The story was really funny and I could hear him laugh. I guess he could relate because himself wanted to have a loose tooth since most of his friends had a tooth fairy encounter. Now he wants me to buy the whole serie for him. What is nice is that at the end of the book your child can write a story, found a clue word hidden in the drawings and you even have a craft to do with your child. That was my first review ever but I think it will help you if you have a smart kid who loves to read and you want his reading to be challenged in a fun way. This is it.

My 4 year old is just starting to get bored with picture books. He says that some of them are for babies. So I introduced him to Ready Freddy, and he absolutly loves him. He gets mad when we can't finish the book in one night. I enjoy reading these books to not only him but my first and second graders. Because it shows that they are not the only ones who have problems with nightmares and homework and things such as thoughs. The author shows the reader how other childern their age are dealing with the same problems. She also shows them how its ok to talk to their friends and family about stuff becuase they are there to help. My son and I really enjoy these boooks and look foward to reading the rest together.

My 1st grade son loves all the Ready Freddy! We have read them all and are re-reading. Very age appropriate. Some books for his age are frighting. If you like this book, Try Appleville Elementary books. 1st graders can read these on their own.

This series is perfect for early readers. My son began reading at four-years-old and quickly ran out of books that were age appropriate in subject matter but still challenging for his reading level. He is five now and I am so glad to have stumbled across this series. The author does use words like "stupid" and referrers to a lot of name calling (which is still a little taboo in pre-school and kindergarten) but I think it adds to the thrill of reading for him. He is very entertained and seems to comprehend everything that is happening in the plot, whereas the "Flat Stanley" series seemed to be a little over his head. We will definitely be buying more of these books!
