Freddie learns an important lesson about talking less… and learning to listen. Freddie the Fly likes to talk and talk and talk. He’s so busy buzzing about the latest gossip, he can’t listen to anyone else. Freddie doesn’t realize how much of a chatterbox he is until he meets Mesquita. Her mile-a-minute mouth mystifies Freddie… until he realizes he and Mesquita have a lot in common!
Freddie the Fly: Motormouth is a humorous take on the problem of talking too much, listening too little, and struggling to wait your turn. This is the first in Kimberly’s Delude’s children’s picture book series Freddie the Fly. Delightfully illustrated by Brian Martin, Freddie’s story will entertain children while teaching them the important social skill of “Listening to Others.”
