Freddy the Penny, written by ten-year-old author, is the tale of Freddy, a brave young penny who goes on an exciting quest. As soon as Freddy enters the world, he is filled with curiosity. His adventures begin when he makes two friends: a pretty penny named Betty and a wise quarter named George. The three friends set out across the country on an adventure, meeting many new friends and even encountering some fearsome foes. Through the characters’ journey, young readers will learn about friendship, family, and more.
What an adorable story about how one little penny changed the way we think about pennies and creates a love of adventure. This book was written by a 10 year old girl and I think that is fabulous! I love to see young children embracing their dream to write and then setting forth and accomplishing it! 5 stars!
