A great book to read aloud!,
This review is from: Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing (Paperback)
I still remember my fourth grade teacher reading, "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" aloud to our class. That was about 20 years ago. I always enjoyed listening to a teacher read a book during class, and I especially remember how much fun "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" was! It was my first Judy Blume book. It is a good book to read aloud.
Since then, I have read other Blume books, including "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing" recently. Kids with younger brothers and sisters will understand and relate to the situations in the book. Judy Blume has talent with respect to combining humor and realistic situations of a young persons world.
The book was just as much fun to read as when I was in the fourth grade. The main character, Peter Hatcher, has the problem of dealing with Fudge, his two-year-old brother. Temper tantrums, smearing food where it shouldn't be, and scribbling on homework are among the many difficulties Peter has to deal with. Peter and his family live in an apartment in New York City. There is also Peter's friend Jimmy Fargo, and Sheila Tubman, who he would care not to be around.
I highly recommend this book for kids and I think adults would enjoy it just as much.
