...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.

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.

Freckleface Strawberry is a wonderful children's book from Actress Julianne Moore.

Like actor/author John Lithgow (Third Rock from the Sun) who also writea children's books, she capture that child=like innocence with simple phrases and a story that touches anyone from ages 5-100. Moore shows a loving she has for children's lit in this her first book. One would hope she writes many more children's books, she has a nack for it

It is amazing that a talented actress like Ms Moore can write such an engaging children's book. I only wish it was on CD to listen to this cute story again, but parents who read to their children will love reading this over and over again. She said, in an interview on the Today show (10/19/07) that the main character's name is one she was called as a child...and it shows her loving for that nickname and all it stands for to her

Sometimes their are times that book art don't mesh with text. This time I am happilly wrong. The illustrations of the book are so animated thet they seem to move off the page.The art work work so well crafted that these illustrations could be the basis for a short animated cartoon of this book.

This is NOT FOR CHILDREN ONLY...this is a book for the child is all of us

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!!!

This is a delightfully written and illustrated book my grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed. I don't usually spend a lot of money for hard-cover books but this is certainly worth the price. My 6 yr. old granddaughter had heard it at Kindergarten and talked about it for weeks! Our local branch of the library didn't have it so I went to Amazon (of course) found it as well as the new release by the two talented women. Julianne Moore and LeUyen Pham collaborate so well together with these books. Easy to understand, the words and illustrations deliver a message that all children are unique and are liked for who they are and not how they look. I highly recommend this book.
