Book Review: Fred Wants to Play By Janna de Lathouder & Anne Schneider


Disclosure: I got sent a free copy of this book via Net Galley.


This book counts towards the A to Z Reading Challenge (Kidlit version) and Beat The Backlist.



It’s quiet time and Fred knows he is supposed to keep still, but keeping still isn’t easy for Fred. A bouncy feeling makes him want to play. Fred feels all alone until he meets Scott. Fred and Scott know how hard it is to keep the colorful feelings inside. Can these two friends help the other fish join in the fun? 

An positive book about friendship and children who are just a little bit more 
energetic than others. For big and small readers ages 4 and up.

    1. I love reviews in video format. I think being able to see and hear the person when they're talking about the book adds something to the review. You can also listen to them whilst you're doing other tasks which makes multitasking easier too. The majority of the Booktube community is really friendly and supportive too.

    1. I hear ya! I should have known I was in for trouble when I was pregnant with my youngest. He wasn't ever still even back then. I actually counted his toes whilst he was still in my belly as he would always be kicking and stretching. He's 6 now and still struggles to stay still.
