I loved the story because it was easy to read and interesting. I can't imagine not liking someone because they were a different color then me. I liked Winnie because she figured this out before anyone. I am glad it is not like that where I live. I recommend it to kids 9 and up only and I think adults should read it too if they are like Mrs. Landan.
Although "Iggie's House" isn't my favorite Judy Blume book (though I doubt I'll ever give her less than 5 stars on any book), she's great at tackling social problems, such as racism in this book, showing how children typically see things in just black and white, so to speak. Though prejudices aren't as easily overcome as shown here, "Iggie's House" is still a great learning tool for preteens.
This book teaches a valuable lesson that color of skin does not matter. You can hang out with who ever you want no matter what your nationality . Some people think skin color matters and that black people and white people shouldn't hang out together. This book teaches you that it's okay to.
her best friend Iggie who has moved away. When Winnie finds out that the new family next door is black, Winnie gets really exicted, but not everybody is happy. Mrs.Landon (or Germs Inc.) is putting out a petition to send the Garbers away just because they're black. So when the going gets tough, Winnie tries to do something about it.
What I think about this book is that it can teach you about how hard minorities have it sometimes. It's a wonderful book and teaches you not to judge a person by how they look. I recommend that if you want to read this book you should not be predjudiced and if you are it would teach you a lesson. I loved it and it's a great book to read again and again.
My daughter was glued to this book until she was finished with it. Another winner from Blume.
2. The main premise is that Winnie's best friend Iggie's family moves away and a new family named the Garbers moves into their old house. Winnie befriends the children who are named Glen, Herbie, and Tina but not everybody is as friendly to them. Why? Because it's the 70's and the Garbers are black and it is a predominantly white neighborhood. Throughout the book Winnie learns about prejudice, keeping an open mind, and having cultural sensitivity.
3. I like how full on angry Winnie gets with Clarice and Mrs. Landon. It's funny how even though Winnie is only eleven years old she can see right through Mrs. Landon and gets so mad at her for being prejudiced.
4. One of my favorite chapters was when Winnie went to the pool with her aunt. She had a really thought provoking conversation with her gym teacher (who works as a swimming instructor) about race and I think her petition that she gave to Mrs. Landon really helped prove her (Winnie's) point.
5. I bought this book used because I love Judy Blume and I had never had the chance to read this one when I was a kid. Like all of her books, it's thought provoking and the characters are realistic.
