Much to my surprise, I really liked this book. I imagine the story is based on the direct experience of the author. When I was a kid I had several friends who were perturbed about their freckles and everything the character thinks and does in this book seemed genuine, well except for going to school with her face completely cov Much to my surprise, I really liked this book.

Although generally not a fan of celebrity-authored children's books - there are notable exceptions, of course, like the picture-books of Jamie Lee Curtis - Freckleface Strawberry got such positive reviews from my online friends that I decided to give it a chance.
I'm glad I did! The story is engaging, and sure to be a hit, not just with children who are freckled, but with all young readers who feel different in some way, and the illustrations are energetic and appealing. All in all, a sweet little book, once that exceeded my expectations! Mar 10, Tissy rated it really liked it. Very cute.
Jun 08, Kristina Whitt rated it it was amazing Shelves: elementary Freckleface Strawberry is a realistic fiction book about a seven year old little girl who is fed up with her freckles. She is tired of the other students and some adults making comments and asking silly questions about them. She decided that she is going to wear a face mask to cover them up, but finds the mask uncomfortable.
She finally meets an adult that had freckles as a child, who tries to comfort the little girl and tells her they disappeared as she got older.
Freckleface Strawberry Freckleface Strawberry is a realistic fiction book about a seven year old little girl who is fed up with her freckles. Freckleface Strawberry is then bombarded by fellow students who have missed her in the time that she was wearing a facemask to school.
She decided that freckles were not all that important and goes to play with her classmates. The story ends with her growing older and having a family of her own, freckles and all.
This book is a fantastic read for any children who have freckles or other self-imagined imperfections. Freckleface goes through an assortment of ways that she thinks are ways to deal with her freckles, many students could make text-to-self connections if they have been in similar situations.
This book would be great for discussing how commenting on others appearance might hurt others feelings, what is on the outside isn't as important as what is on the inside, self-esteem, and dealing with your imperfections. This book would be a great interactive read aloud and would work well with emergent to early readers.
There are few words per page and the pictures are well illustrated and connect well to the text. Some questions you could ask students: 1. Have you ever felt like Freckleface Strawberry? Do you know anyone who has freckles?
Do you think the other children really cared about her freckles? If Freckleface Strawberry was one of your friends, what would you tell her about her freckles? Oct 05, Shannon K added it Shelves: pbgs-picture. The first thing that strikes me about the illustrations in this book is the color pallet that is used.
I also love how the main characters skin was left uncolored so that the red freckles all over here body are that much more prevalent. Another aspect that I really like and that I think adds character is how the narrative text is on The first thing that strikes me about the illustrations in this book is the color pallet that is used.
Another aspect that I really like and that I think adds character is how the narrative text is one font and set apart from the text that is spoken by the characters, that text is a different font and are all placed in different colored text boxes by the people who are saying it. The last artistic element that I really enjoy is the sizes of the images are all different on each page.
Some of the most important images take up the whole page while others have several small images on one page, I like how it works with the story and makes the most important parts pop out. Jun 04, Jenny rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: anyone with freckles. Shelves: picture-books. Loved this book! Cute illustrations and a fun story. I guess having freckles myself and having thought similarly before--wow, I'd really be tan if these darn freckles covered by WHOLE face!
Luckily my husband loves my freckles, so that's nice! Anyways, rea Loved this book! Anyways, really enjoyed the book and am glad I bought it, when all I had seen was the cute picture on the cover and decided to order it from a book order.
Jun 01, Villain E rated it really liked it Shelves: picture-books. A little girl is insecure about her freckles. Complaining, trying to cover them, eventual acceptance, the usual.
Done pretty well. I picked this up because I like LeUyen Pham's artwork. I completely missed that the writer is someone whose name I should know. The story is handled well, but "Freckleface Strawberry" is a lot of syllables, so repeating it multiple times on a page hinders the flow when trying to read this out loud.
