      I have officially turned the page to 2018 although I am still savoring some of my 2017 reads This year, I decided to go through each of my challenges one by one, starting with classics bingo One square this year is read a classic children s book Admittedly, because I have always been of a tomboy, I was never enad with classic books as Little Women and The Secret Garden Toward the end of last year, I finally got around to reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz For a classic children s book, I decide [...]

      My brother and I are Irish Twins , so we were in the same grade throughout our whole school career He got all of the awesome, tenured teachers, whose students loved them so much that they still continued to visit them well into their middle and high school years their classrooms had epic decor themes like under the sea or summer fun I was a straggler kid, looking in from the outside and always longing for what he had My assortment of teachers were either a fresh out of college and trying experim [...]

      I hadn t read this 1972 children s classic since I was a 9 year old and in the fourth grade myself, so I was pleasantly surprised to discover, this week, while reading it to my fourth grader, that the story was still funny, relatable and worthy of new readership.It turns out, the angst of suffering siblings is just as potent, and just as irritating as it was in the 1970s And, apparently, all other decades Siblings haven t gotten any better, y all They still want to mess with your sh t, taunt you [...]

      I read this with my 4th grade class every year and I never get tired of it Even though published in the 1970 s it stands the test of time I found it funny when I read it at age 10, still funny reading it as an adult to my class, and even funnier now that I have a 3 year old son who could easily double as Fudge Hatcher if they ever made it into a movie My 12 year old says it was her favorite book she ever read in elementary school and my 8 year old just experienced Fudge for the first time and ca [...]

      I remember reading this as a kid and loving it Fudge was crazzzzzyyyyy _

      Read in the 1970s.Wow calling it Fudge 1 way to reinforce the title sentiment Nine year old fourth grader Peter Warren Hatcher is feeling like his life got right fudged up almost three years ago with the arrival of a baby brother his parents named Farley Drexel family names, maybe but these days he s known as a turbocharged toddler called Fudge When people first see him they think he s so adorable, but he soon shows them there s way to him But why does that have to mean that there s nothing to [...]

      Lovely, cute, adorable, pulling strings of your heart, sweet and innocently joyous You pick it up and can t let go till you re finished It s about A nine year old boy Peter and his innocuous jealousy for his toddler brother, Fudgie Spinning through cute, little incidents, it takes us through the life and innocent thoughts of Peter I loved his view of his parents a mother whom he s always suspicious of that she doesn t love him, and the father whom he finds just But the keen observation of Blume [...]

    9. Erik on said:

      I have fond memories of this book I have a feeling Peter could have certainly benefited christian or no from the serenity prayer Perhaps he ll eventually pick it up at a meeting of Fudgaholics Anonymous Blume s humor and ability to speak to deeply rooted juvenile issues such as being utterly ignored keep her firmly planted at the pinnacle of authors writing for young readers When the mood strikes me and if there s a copy handy I ll read just the last page of this book I walk away understanding t [...]

    10. Kate on said:

      A really easy read about Peter, a boy in grade four, and how his younger brother, Fudge, always seems to be up to something to annoy Peter.

    11. SheriC (PM) on said:

      Probably my least favorite of Judy Blume s children s books so far I seem to remember enjoying it as a child, but unlike the Ramona and Beezus and Henry books, it has no charm for me as an adult reader Peter is cursed with an obnoxious little brother who gets all the attention and ruins everything Originally written in 1972, the substance of the story doesn t rise above its dated references and gender stereotypes The only other thing I can say is, poor Dribble He probably wished Peter didn t hav [...]

    12. Greg on said:

      If I remember right this book was actually better than SF, but it never had the obsession thing attached to it There is a part in the book where Peter holy shit, how did I do that, I can t remember character names in books I read last week, but here I am pulling out a character name from a book I read a quarter of a century ago , gets mugged and he says that it s what happens in New York, or something like it s scary but everyone gets mugged so it s no big deal And this stuck with me for a long [...]

      When I first read this book as a kid in grammar school I really enjoyed it I think I just liked how it went through a kids day Funny things happen, siblings cause trouble, and life goes on My sons enjoyed reading it in their free time.But as an adult rereading it I didn t enjoy it as much I have read so many other children s books that I liked so much that this book just kind of fell flat As a homeschooling mom I won t place it on any literature lists but just as something to be enjoy if the ki [...]

      This book is so fun Siblings fight, having a turtle as pet, the way little Fudgie s talk and call his brother Pee tah everything is amusing Dear Peter, you are a wonderful boy and you must know it Guessing exact numbers of jelly beans in Mrs Fargo s jar remind me of Tin Goyenda It s exactly the same way Kishore won Rolls Royce car for a whole month

      When I came across Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing at the public library I was so excited I absolutely love Judy Blume books and feel that they really are some of the best books for young readers out there This book is the first of many in the Fudge Book series that Blume writes This is the story of Peter who is nine years old Peter has a ridiculous two and a half year old brother named Fudge who never seems to do anything except annoy Peter However, to Peter it seems that nothing Fudge ever doe [...]

      I absolutely loved this book Growing up with three other siblings I definitely understood the sibling rivalry that went on between Peter and Fudge Author, Judy Bloom does an excellent job at creating a comical, witty story that young children will love In addition, illustrator Roy Doty does a great job at creating pencil sketches that promote readers understanding of the text.Within the book, brothers Peter and Fudge live in New York with their parents Fudge is the trouble maker within the story [...]

      This is a really good book by Judy Blume, called Tales of a Forth Grade Nothing It is 120 pages and is realistic fiction I really loved this book in the 4th grade so I decided to read it again This book is about a boy named Peter He has a little brother who goes by fudge At first Peter gets a turtle from a friends birthday party When he comes how his brother likes the turtle Later in the story Peter has to watch over his brother at the park, when Peter isn t looking Fudge climbs on the jungle gy [...]

    18. Steph Su on said:

      There s absolutely a reason why this book continues to be widely read by readers of all ages, even so many decades after its original publication The narrative voice that Blume gives Peter Hatcher is pitch perfect, and his complicated feelings toward his naughty little brother will resonate with readers of a similar age What I find so remarkable is that, rereading this book now, I can regard all the characters and their relationships with one another in a different, albeit no less real, light In [...]

      Many fond memories of this, the first book in a series by Judy Blume featuring a fourth grader and his annoying toddler brother Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing was one of those books I voraciously read over and over until the copy that I owned started falling apart Dog eared did not begin to describe its condition, and yet I cherished it, taking it with me on just about every road trip or family vacation I didn t do stuffed animals, really I carried books instead Strangely enough, I still do

      Peter Warren Hatcher is a typical nine year old boy, growing up in the middle of New York City Sure, he has his fair share of annoyances with his mother, and has grown extremely tired of drinking Juicy O everydayBut these are just minor issues compared to his BIGGEST problem his little brother, Fudge Each day brings a new challenge and fear of what the two year old terror will do next Whether Fudge is throwing a tantrum or meddling into something he shouldn t, chaos seems to surround him whereve [...]

      Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume was one of my favorites as a kid and no less enjoyable as an adult, reading it to my 5 yr old son Granted, I read it in fourth grade, so I might have understood , but still, my son was riveted So much so, that even though the chapters were longer than he was used to, he begged me to keep reading when I was on the last three chapters and we finished it much quicker than anticipated While I was reading it, I noticed it had an older feel to it, but that [...]

      Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy BlumeBook 1 in the Fudge series Synopsis Two is a crowd when Peter and his four year old brother, Fudge, are in the same room Grown ups think Fudge is absolutely adorable, but Peter and his pet turtle, Dribble, know the truth Fudge is actually a tiny terror in disguise, causing mischief everywhere he goes.My Thoughts Although I discovered Judy Blume around age 11 I firmly refused to read this series because, well, I was in the fifth grade and couldn t poss [...]

      I am sure that I read at least one of the books in the Fudge series by Judy Blume sometime during my childhood As I reread this book, it s not overly familiar to me, so I ll have to see if Superfudge rings any bells The title seems very familiar, anyway, and I know that I ve read several of Ms Blume s books throughout my life I picked this book out for our oldest, since she begins fourth grade this year She read the book very quickly and loved it And then she told me that her class read it in sc [...]

      Judy Blume once again writes a wonderful classic for children that is seemingly directly coming from their mouths The main character Peter is a 9 year old fourth grade student who is sometimes jealous of his little brother Farley Dexrell or Fudge Fudge was 2 1 2 and often caused trouble Peter had won a pet turtle at a friends birthday party which he named Dribble and Fudge just had to have him Throughout the story Fudge constantly causes trouble for Peter and often times will only do things if P [...]

      As far as kids books go, this one is way up there I love reading about all of fudge s antics I happened to have both kids with me at the library the other day when I pulled this off the shelf I asked them if they had read it thinking that surely they had, but neither one of them did remember reading it I think this book was read to me when I was in gradeschool, but I had almost no recollection as I read it through today It is only a 3.3 on the AR reading scale, which is disappointing, and the se [...]

      Although I never had a younger sibling, I feel like this is an accurate depiction of many of the feelings an older sibling must have about their younger siblings Some parts had me laughing out loud which I realize makes me seem childish Maybe I m still a fourth grader at heart
