Moore, Julianne. Freckleface Strawberry and the Really Big Voice. Illustrated by LeUyen Pham. (Freckleface Strawberry series) Doubleday Random House, 2016. $16.99. ISBN 978-0-385-39203-7. 32 pgs. Grades: Kindergarten-Early Elementary. P7/Q6
Another story in the Freckleface Strawberry series. This one focuses on her best friend Windy Pants Patrick and his very loud voice. There is a time to use your outside voice and your inside voice. All the characters except Windy Pants figures this out. The story is entertaining and the way the font changes to express when the kids are using a loud or quiet voice helps the story along. I would see for a beginner reader it could be hard to follow as the words are sporadically placed on the pages. The illustrations show a diverse group of kids on each page though which is nice.
