My Friend Fred
Publisher: Allen & Unwin
My friend Fred does a lot of funny things. He eats dog food, which I think is disgusting. He also howls at the moon. I don’t know why. But even though we are different, Fred is my best friend.
With gorgeous illustrations throughout highlighting what strange things dogs do sometimes, My Friend Fred is a funny tale of the appreciating the differences in one another. With a read-aloud structure to the text and a mysterious narrator of Fred’s tale, this is an engaging book that will have you guessing who Fred’s friend is right up until the end. For the older readers, this would be a great book for discussion around tolerance and what makes a good friend in others.
