Freckle Juice has a reading level of 3.6. It is a high-quality read about a boy who desperately wants freckles, and how he ends up making a deal for a "freckle juice" recipe from his annoying classmate Sharon. It is a good little read for a guided reading center. It could simply be used for fluency building, comprehension, etc. We are using it in my class and the kids really seem to enjoy it.
