I like how Freddy and Linda are best friends and how they are nice to each other and their friends. They do lots of fun things. I think it is a very good book and if you are having a bad day it can turn your frown upside down. ( From my 8 year old)
This is a wonderful book with gentle, realistic life adventures of two neighborhood friends. I love that it shows children working and having interesting, positive interactions with adults as well as other children. My younger kids enjoyed learning more about humming birds along the way.
This book was so sweet! It was such a fun read aloud with my kids, as they continued to beg for me to keep reading until we finished it!
This was a very sweet story that my children enjoyed listening to.
One morning at breakfast, Mother said, “Freddy, the new house next door has been sold. A family with a six-year-old child is moving in today.” The new girl’s name is Linda, and the two children become fast friends, sailing boats in the pond, taking care of an injured hummingbird, and saving ducks from a waterfall.
“Children imitate the behaviors they see in books. Thus, we should fill children’s minds with the best role models, such as the characters Freddy and Linda, who are kind, positive, creative, and respectful. Freddy and Linda is an example of how completely clean, well-written literature can be fun and engaging without including any of the potty language, negativity, or disrespect so rampant in children’s literature today. This feel-good book is a little gem for your home library.”—Jenny Phillips
