Fred Stays with Me
Nancy Coffelt

I think the theme is even if all the doors are closed there's always a way out! The girls parents keep telling her that she can't have Fred at their house! Fred shakes Park mud all over the seats of my mom's car! "What am I going to do with this dog"! Fred shakes Lake water all over the seat of my dad's pants! "What Am I going to do with this dog"! "Fred can't stay with me"! My parents say! My mom comes up with a plan! We help Fred become friends with the poodle next door! Me and dad come up with a plan we buy Fred a new chew toy and make sure all the socks are put away! This book makes me think people can like different things and can find a solution to a problem.

I think the theme in the book Edward hopper is achievement because when he was a little boy he wanted to be a painter and when he grew up became a famous painter. He was a little boy wanted to be a painter when he grew up he went to New York and studied illustrations so he would be better at painting. After he went to New York he came to Paris to paint buildings because he thought he was good enough to do it. And after he returned to New York and got a job, there was one big problem no one would buy his paintings but he never gave up and he kept on painting.
