...and an invaluable message!

Our family has already put Freckleface Strawberry to the test numerous times---to great response..from the read-ees and the read-er alike!

While confronting and acknowledging her heroine's freckled complexion, Ms. Moore established qualities for young Freckleface Strawberry in which she took great and justifiable pride.

My daughter (age 6) just kept saying "That's me!" and smiling throughout the book. Her twin brother loved that a boy in the background's thought bubble indicated that he couldn't ride a bike (he can't either!).

The story is told with readily accessible believability, and lively illustrations that meet the challenge of the energetic prose.

We'll be waiting in line for the next tale of Freckleface Strawberry---until then, we'll keep reading this one...and remembering that our differences---whether we like them or not---are part of who we are.
(and chances are, our friends like us "as is!")

A great first book, from an insightful new voice in children's literature.

Instead of inspiring young readers to love and appreciate their freckles, this book left me feeling that those with freckles should neurotically worry about their "dirty" spots. Perhaps this would be a good book for a teenager who has decided that freckles are awful and needs a way to get through that phase; however, this book is written for little kids - not teenagers. I'd be worried that my red-headed daughter would LEARN that she should be ashamed of her freckles (and be concerned about dirt, odor, etc.) because of them. While the pictures are charming, I found this book to be a big disappointment. This book does not say that freckles are fun, cute, charming, and unique, but that they are a mark against beauty that can only be begrudgingly accepted.

As a mother of very spunky, wonderful children with BEAUTIFUL red hair and freckles I wanted to make sure they appreciate what they were born with. I wanted my children to embrace ALL of the qualities that make them different from everyone else. This book is a good example of how being different can be both a blessing and a curse and how you can turn a curse into a blessing. I really appreciate Ms. Moore for sharing this with everyone and helping children try to look positively about themselves especially in a society that is so critical of each other. I am very proud of my strawberries and I'm super happy to have found a book that celebrates them. :) We love these books and can't wait for more to come out (hint hint to Ms. Moore. LOL). My lovely daughter begs me to read them all the time. A really good friend recommended this book to me and I can't thank her enough. What a fantastic book!!!

Format: Hardcover
I think this is a great book for kids and even adults will like it. I think this because I read this book to my class and we all enjoyed it. Freckleface Strawberry is a unforgettable character because she is funny when she tries to get rid of her freckles.

One reason I think kids will like this book is because Freckleface Strawberry does lots of different things to try to hide her freckles. She tries to use a marker, a mask, and she tries to scrub them off! My students were laughing out loud when they saw her with the mask on. None of her friends even knew it was her! Another reason I think this is a good book is because the illustrations show lots of details. For example, you can see what Freckleface Strawberry is feeling because of the way the illustrator draws her facial expressions. The speech bubbles and thinking bubbles also tell you more information that the words don't. I like reading the speech bubbles and thinking bubbles because they give you more information. A final reason I think this is a good book is because it teaches you a lesson. Freckleface Strawberry learns that even though she doesn't like her freckles they are a special part of her that makes her unique (that's a fancy word for special). She can't get rid of them so she has to accept them as a special part of her.

I think everyone should read this book because it has a good message and is funny. If you like books like Junie B. Jones and Horrible Harry you will also like Freckleface Strawberry.

My grandmother always called them angel kisses. I was never teased and as a teacher, I would be really sad to think that this book would make others think it was okay to tease someone about freckles.

Judy Blume has Freckle Juice, which is essentially the same book for older children.

I really think the illustrations are adorable! But the message is a sad one and not one needed on our classroom shelves.

This book was made for my family! We are all red heads. I myself have tons of freckles and it was constantly brought up by other kids. You have freckles on your knees? The worst was when a kid sitting next to me tried playing connect the dot. This book would have been great for me growing up, so the next best thing was to get it for my daughters. They don't have freckles yet, but I assume it will happen at some point. My almost three year old loves the book. She talks about Freckleface's red hair (just like her's) and then points to Freckleface's freckles then to mine. The pictures are well drawn and are very colorful catching the kids' attnetion. My daughter asks for this almost every night. At the end she loves saying, "Lives happily ever after". I think the message is, others may see your freckles as something different, but that's what makes you unique. I hope my daughter picks this up as she gets older.
