What’s Football Freddie & Fumble the Dog About?
Football Freddie & Fumble the Dog, touches on some of the famous landmarks of North and South Carolina! The first location they start at is Myrtle Beach, where we happen to live! There’s something really neat about reading about a place where you reside, especially to your child.
Paired with gorgeously drawn illustrations, this book takes you through a nice history lesson. With educational blurbs about each landmark, there’s a lot to learn! Some of the locations mentioned are the Arthur Ravenel Bridge, Middle Place and Biltmore Estates, to name a few.
Though my daughter is still a tad young for the historical parts of the book, she thoroughly enjoyed looking at the pictures and hearing mommy tell her about each special location. Her favorite part of the book are the illustrations of the dog, she is quite the animal lover!
The book wraps up with a finish at the football game, which is a huge part of the South Carolina/North Carolina tradition.
We really enjoyed Football Freddie & Fumble the Dog! Not only did we like learning about different parts of our own state, but the illustrations are beautiful. This book really made us take a step back and appreciate all the neat things our state has to offer.
We can’t wait to go visit some of these famous landmarks!
