Book Description

May 24 2005 Beginner Books(R)
Fred and Ted—beloved canine stars of P. D. Eastman’s Big Dog . . . Little Dog—are back in an all-new Beginner Book written and illustrated by P. D.’s son, Peter Eastman! In this story Fred and Ted go camping, and as usual, their uniquely different approaches to doing things (such as packing equipment, setting up camp, and fishing techniques) have humorous—and sometimes surprising—results. A charming introduction to opposites that beginner readers will find ruff to put down!

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-Two lovable dogs are good friends, although they are very different. Fred is tall and rather bumbling; Ted is short and more capable. When they go camping, they often have their own preferences and ways of doing things. Each one allows the other to have his own way without commenting or teasing, despite Fred's usual misjudgment and clumsiness. All in all, the pals enjoy the various activities commonly pursued on such outings: pitching a tent; canoeing and fishing; and finding, cooking, and eating apples, berries, and nuts. Continuing the legacy of his father, Eastman has created an appealing picture book for new readers. The colorful, cartoon illustrations accurately depict the action and emotion of the simple text. A readable, fun-filled book.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ

5.0 out of 5 stars Fred and Ted are always delightful Dec 26 2008
By Jujube - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Earlier, I commented on the review that described this book as "not likely to entertain even the smallest child." I've since purchased this book for our two-year-old boy. He loves it, as he does the first Fred and Ted one.

When reading, he learns about camping equipment, colors, actions, relationships, and more. Although he was just beginning to understand the concept of "pretend play," he could easily understand that our boat was like Fred's and Ted's boat and we could pretend to paddle.

As another reviewer implied, the point isn't really whether or not we adults like it. It's whether or not our kids benefit from it. Obviously, kids have different tastes. Our guy has no interest in some books/toys about which other parents rave, no matter how hard I try to make them engaging. That's just him. He does like this book, however, as do I.

My 2-year old loves Big Dog, Little Dog so I was very excited to find this book. It is just as cute as the original. I hope Peter Eastman will do more with Fred & Ted!

Great for an emerging reader. Really builds confidence. Cute storyline. A little pricey, but overall, worth it as u will read it over and over again.

My granddaughter thought this was fun. It was a good way to talk about opposites and it moved along fast enough to keep her attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars engaging for preschooler Jan. 9 2012
By D O - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
My son loves outdoors and camping, and he loves this book (at ages 2/3, he also laughs out loud at the ending pages). The pictures are cute, accessible, and humorous. The characters are engaging enough and it's a quick read (when you're reading it for the 200th time!). It helps illustrate the concept of opposites, and sharing in camping and outdoor activity at a beginner reading level, I think this is a good addition to our library.
