Ready, Freddy!

Have you heard of Ready, Freddy? We hadn't either until Granny (Anne's mom, who happens to be a first grade teacher) visited us three weeks ago. She introduced Alex to a series of books starring Freddy Thresher, a first grader who loves sharks, and is usually dealing with some type of first grade crisis. (In this book he is the only student in his class who has not lost a tooth).
There are fifteen books in the series, and in the past three weeks Alex has read 8. Each book is about 100 pages.
It thrills us to see him become such an avid reader. Many times he will have his nose buried in a book, then we'll hear him begin laughing out loud as Freddy encounters something humorous!
