Teaching kids about analogies (giveaway)
|December 3, 2010||Filled under current giveaways, Review and Giveaway|
“Freddi the Dog” is a book which is both funny and educational. Both kids and adults laugh at Freddi’s adventures. The book teaches kids about analogies. Freddie the Dog eats everything because it looks like something edible. All analogies are demonstrated with pictures. For example, Freddi eats a telephone because it looks like a hotdog. She eats Aunt Martha’s wig because it looks like tasty spaghetti. I won’t tell you what Grandpa Joe’s holey underwear looks like, you will need to find out for yourself.
The book also introduces preschoolers to anatomy. You won’t find a list of every bone, but kids can learn what a dog’s skeleton looks like. To me, this is extremely helpful. Since my kids still think that skeletons are just a type of people. In addition, kids learn about X-rays when Freddi goes to see a doctor.
Freddi is actually a real dog. Freddi’s full name is Fredericka. Her owners are author’s Lisa and Randy Herman. Some people think Freddi is a boy dog because of the name, but she is a girl!! She is an English Bull Terrier who is 11 years old, which is 77 years old in dog years. Freddi’s favorite things to do (when she has free time) is to eat, eat again, and eat some more.
Not only does Freddi have a book written about her, she has a website, dedicated to her exclusively. You can play games with Freddi, such as Puzzling Situation, Buried Bones, Math Bath, or Munchie Dreams. You can see all Freddi’s friends there. You can even enter a contest where you draw and name a character for the next book.
