Fred Stays With Me! - Cover
Fred Stays With Me!
Nancy Coffelt, Little Brown & Company 2007
"Sometimes I live with my mom. Sometimes I live with my dad. My dog, Fred, stays with me." A spunky little girl describes her life with delight - and when her parents get mad at Fred, she stands up for her beloved companion. The family compromises - and Fred stays with the child. This is a terrific book about empowerment, fairness, and conflict resolution. And it gives visibility to the reality of many children who live in two loving homes.
