    • Freckle face Strawberry is a cute little red-headed girl (are there other kinds?) who enjoys her family, but also is keen to attend the school's Early Bird program before classes. There, Freckleface Strawberry can play with other children and get herself ready for class. However, when it rains, there is not rushing around in the field, but a requirement that everyone congregate in the gymnasium to play dodgeball. No one enjoys dodgeball, especially when Windy Pants Patrick is around. He tosses t [...]


    • This is one of those rare bully stories these days where the bully isn’t actually a bully. Much of the mistaken identity is attributed to the power of the imagination—perceiving the big strong kid as a bully and the dodgeball as something that is out to seriously harm you. –but isn’t it though? We had mornings where Natalya felt the same kind of dread, hoping against all odds they would not be playing dodgeball. The book does not downplay the existence of bullies or monsters or even fear [...]


    • I picked this up because it had LeUyen Pham's name on it, not because it had celebrity Julianne Moore's name on it. In fact, the latter almost made me put it back down. Turns out, I am a fan of Freckleface Strawberry. (However, in the interest of full disclosure, I most likely would not be quite the fan if Pham had not been the illustrator.)Freckleface Strawberry loves going to Early Bird at school, because Early Bird means extra playtime--except when it's raining. When it's raining during Early [...]


    • Freckleface Strawberry is an adorable little redheaded girl who bravely tackles serious elementary school kid-issues like having to play dodgeball and dealing with bullies.Apparently this is a series of children's books written by Oscar-winning actress Julianne Moore and illustrated by Leuyen Pham. I'm sure it's purely coincidental that Moore is an adorable redhead herself.In "Freckleface Strawberry and the Dodgeball Bully", Freckleface must confront her fears of dodgeball head-on when rain forc [...]


    • In this simple and sweet story, Freckleface Strawberry finds out that dodgeball is not as scary as she thinks. Windy Pants Patrick (who wears shorts!) is big, fast, and throws the ball fast. Freckleface decides to fake being part of the dodgeball game and ends up being the last player standing. Afraid of the ball, she cowers in the middle. When Patrick hits her with ball, she realizes that it doesn't hurt that much after all. She conquers her fear of both dodgeball and the dodgeball bully. Happi [...]


    • I thought that this was a really cute book and I really enjoyed reading it. I loved how the main character was described as the kid who normally would get made fun of in other books and yet she wasn't. Her character was so cute. I think that this book would be a good book to read to a child who was having trouble getting along with someone else or is scared of another kid in the class. At the end of the story to two main characters become friends and that is main goal that we as teachers want to [...]


    • Never really took on the issue of dealing with a bully. The kid just turns out to be not-so-bad in the end, which isn't always the case in real life. Cute story and pictures, though.


    • I picked Freckleface Strawberry and the Dodgeball Bully up at the half off sale day at Goodwill. (You don't have time to read books at a store, especially on that day.) I thought the drawings were cute and that it would go well with a bullying unit or if the subject should arise in my future classroom. Today I sat down and read the books. The drawings continued to be cute and the writing wasn't terrible. I liked that the book made going to school and going to before school programs sound like fu [...]


    • Freckleface Strawberry loves going to Early Bird at school because that means she gets to play monsters outside on the playground except when it rains, that only means one thing--going inside for dodgeball. Dodgeball scares Freckleface because Windy Pants Patrick throws the hardest balls that she is sure will hurt if they hit her. While the other kids play dodgeball, Freckleface stands in the back practicing her monster which works out great until she is the only kid left. Windy Pants throws a b [...]


    • Julianne Moore's written expression has not only explained how students deal may deal with a bad situation, and see it in a more positive way. Strawberry does not enjoy dodgeball for the morning activity when it is raining. One boy /, Windy Pants Patrick, is very good at dodgeball, and it sounds like it hurts when the ball hits someone. But Freckleface Strawberry knows that she needs to become brave and tough to win the dodgeball game, so she acts like a big, mean monster, and does not even noti [...]


    • I now know that Freckleface Strawberry is a recurring character. I picked this book up because of the "bully" theme. I have a collection in my library that I call the Peace Collection. These books provide stories and teaching lessons to promote Peace in the world, as well as practical tips on dealing with bullies. This book does not provide a practical tip. It was disappointing to read that Freckleface's plan was to imagine her way out of the dodgeball terror but simply end up as the tiny knot o [...]


    • I’ve already read Freckleface Stawberry 1 and 3. This second book I actually like the least of the three books. I thought I’d love it because I had a horror of dodgeball when I was a kid. I hated it. The thrown ball did usually hurt. It’s a game that sadists can glory in. I thought that this book would mirror my experience and have some sort of (appealing) message, but I ended up being disappointed. For me only 2 ½ stars, but I’m upping it to 3 stars because I do really like this series [...]


    • Freckleface Strawberry sometimes has to go to school really early because her parents have to go to work early. She usually likes early school except when it's raining. Then everyone plays dodgeball. And dodgeball doesn't look very fun because of Windy Pants Patrick. He throws the ball really hard and it looks like it really hurts. One day, Frecleface Strawberry decides to play her monster game in the back so she looks like she's playing dodgeball, but really she's trying to stay out of the way. [...]


    • The writing was touch and go in this one. Sometimes it flowed well and other times it did not. Sometimes it seemed wrong for the age group (which I would place around age 4-9)--usually too young. Her dodgeball fears were/are similar to mine. Some people DO throw hard. And it DOES hurt. But somehow in elementary school, I got over that and had a blast playing. (Even won a game on a certain special day in 6th grade) As an adult? Nah. The fears have returned. I suppose I could be like Freckleface S [...]


    • I enjoyed this book for both content and illustration. The story gives a good lesson and is a perfect fit for my anti-bullying text set. It shows that bullies can be just as sensitive and scared as those they are bullying against. The use of different size fonts really helps to emphasize various points as do the "action" words, and the illustrations are simple but effective. I really think this book is appealing to young readers - as well as effective. It would be useful in a classroom to genera [...]


    • Freckleface Strawberry loves the Early Bird program at school because it means extra time on the playground–except when it rains. Rain means indoor playtimed facing the school bully Windy Pants Patrick in a bruising game of dodgeball. Ignoring him seems the safest thing, but what's our freckled heroine to do when she's forced to confront the bully alone? Beat him at his own game, of course. A funny, inspiring story about an all-too-common problem that kids, parents, and teachers will easily re [...]


    • In this story, Freckleface Strawberry finds out that dodgeball is not as scary as she thinks. Windy Pants Patrick is much bigger and faster than FreckleFace Strawberry. He even throws the ball way too fast. Freckleface wasn't technically ready to play dodgeball. Afraid of the ball, she cowers in the middle. When Patrick hits her with ball, she realizes that it doesn't hurt like she thought. In the end she makes a friend with the bully and was able to play dodgeball.


    • I LOVE this book, with its unexpected gift of encouraging kids to use their imagination to create what they want. It was such a perfect read for my kindergarten starting daughter, who is finding so many things at school strange and some just not to her liking. This book helped us start a conversation about how you can do the things at school that you need to do while still having fun in your own head. LOVE


    • Charming story and illustrations. Freckleface Strawberry is the universal heroine - imaginative, energetic, and completely terrified of dodgeball. Like so many kids, her fears grow monstrous until she uses her imagination and energy to exorcise the dodgeball demon. The demon is vanquished a bit too easily, but overall it works well in the picture book format and the heart of the message will appeal to kids of any race, nationality, or creed.


    • I read this book because it had some great reviews. I wanted to read it out loud to a group of girls at the bookstore I work at. The story was very disjointed and unbelievable. The grammer was not even the way a five year old talks, it was more preschool age. I decided not to waste everyones time by reading this book and I found a different book to read out loud. Julianne better stick to acting.


    • This is a fun story about facing your fears and bullies, too. It also shows that just because someone is bigger and more aggressive than other children, he still might be a nice person and could become a good friend. We enjoyed reading this story and we are looking forward to reading the next story in the Freckleface Strawberry series.


    • The Freckleface Strawberry books are absolutely wonderful especially if you have a little red head growing up and getting more freckles.My daughter absolutely loves these books and takes them to school often. I don't want to spoil anything so I won't give a synopsis.I highly recommend this book for all those lil redheads out there. Yes this is a repeat review just so you know.


    • This is a fun little book where Frecleface Strawberry spends a good portion of the beginning of the story worrying about rainy days and dodgeball and thinking how much the ball will hurt when the big bully-like Windy Pants Patrick throws the ball. But in the end she finds out that not only does the ball not hurt when it's thrown, but Windy Pants Patrick isn't trying to be a bully at all!


    • This book is another good one by Moore. I think it would be easy to incorporate this book into a class and introduce the topic of bullying in a more lighthearted way. Kindergarten or first grade would probably be the most receptive to this book if you were trying to get across the topic of bullying.


    • This is a story about a girl who doesn't like the game dodgeball because of a boy who plays too hard. But what she didn't realize was that he wasn't actually as scary as she thought he was. After all this time of being scared of him, she finally realized that she wasn't scared anymore and became good friends. This would be a great one to talk about bullies or being scared.


    • I think many adults will read this and nod their heads. The memories of dodgeball, or some form of it, still a vibrant memory, and the kid who was dodgeball master, of gym class. I liked the turning of the bully to show we can all have fears. Loved LeUyen Pham's illustrations. Beautiful, as always!


    • Who would have thought an Academy-Award nominee had a better imagination than, say, William Shatner? These books have a soft spot and I believe children of men (LOL) will be very happy. Just don't tell them this is the same actress who got shmoozy with Amanda Seyfried in one movie!


    • I was highly suprised how much I loved this story by a famous person. Julianne Moore has created a realistic cute character who is not all that sure of playing dodgeball(who is) I like the little girl and keep cheering on her Monster Game. Ages 5+


    • Story itself is about a 3. It's just not very rhythmic. But I love love love LeYeun Pham's illustration. Her expressions are perfect and adorable. I particularly love the images of Freckleface and the monster. Always nice to see little girls playing with purple monsters.


    • Bullying is a major issue in schools and this is a fun book to bring the discussion to the classroom. This needs to be discussed from a young age so kids understand what is bullying and how the can cope and stop bullying.
