I was excited to get a copy of Freddy the Penny written by a young author names Gabrielle Begun and Illustrated by Novella Genelza.  I love the fact that this children's book is written by a young girl and my little girls were so happy to get to read Gabrielles book. 


Our 6 yr old will be a 1st grader in the fall and is able to read this book to her little sister. Both girls love this story about Freddy the Penny and his friends adventures. I like that this children's book has an excited storyline with a good message for kids.  It is a wonderful addition to our home library.  I recommend it for young readers and as a gift for school libraries.
