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
