Format: Paperback
I guess it has simple language that a new reader could read. But I bought this book to read to my daughter to help with our upcoming move. I'm glad I read it myself before reading it to her. It does NOT teach a child how to make friends. First, he goes around town asking 'Who will be my friend?' and only adults respond to him. They agree to be his friend, but none of them has time to play right now. Then, this poor kid goes to the park, asks to play, is rejected, then starts playing by himself. It is only after the other boys see that he is good at throwing and catching the ball that they allow him to join them. That is not very instructive.

This story is great for teachers to read on the first day of school. The illustrations are simple yet compelling. It is also a great book for a teacher to read when a new student arrives. It can be read over and over again and never loses it's appeal. Syd Hoff's simple nature of writing inspires young people to read.

I am a college student right now who volunteers at a local elementary school. I am doing a reading system with them and this is their favorite book to read. It is written for k-1st grade level and the topic of the book relates to what children go through when they move into a new neighborhood. It also teaches the children to make new friends. Freddy is the main character in this book and he tries to find new friends until he finally meets some boys at the park who are playing baseball and they let him play with them. I recommend this book to any family who is trying to start their child towards the reading path.

This was the first book I learned to read when I was 3 and I was so happy to find it to start reading to my baby in the womb so he can learn it too when he is born. It came so fast I couldn't turn my head fast enough and it was here.
