Thank You to Judy Blume for bringing me back to my childhood with this one book! . I read this book as a child in the 80's, my 9 year old daughter read it and loved it to. Good way to open up the topic of changes and adolescence. 6 people found this helpful.

I’m so scared God. I’ve never lived anywhere but here. It doesn't take long for Margaret to find a group of friends that are in the mist of that magical age when everything is not right with your body with boys becoming something more than being smelly things. With everything going on, Margaret is faced with having no religion in a family that fought over how Margaret was going to be raised but what they don't know is that Margaret speaks to God in her own way in dealing with life's challenges.

It’s Me Margaret is very special. The first Judy Blume books I read. served as a kind of introduction to myself. Amy Poehler (Vulture) Generations of teenage girls have grown up reading the tales of teenage angst told by beloved author Judy Blume. John Green quoted in The New York Times Mention Judy Blume to almost any woman under a certain age and you're likely to get this reaction: Her face lights up, and she's transported back to her childhood self - curled up with a book she knows will speak directly to her anxieties about relationships, self-image and measuring up.

Every paper was marked and had the proper name on it. I felt great es not being on the test papers. He just stood there and smiled. Good morning, class," he said without clearing his throat. I think he knew he'd won the battle. Later that day Mr. Benedict reminded us of our individual projects again. He told us not to wait until the last minute and think we could whip something up then

When I went to live in foster care at 10 I wanted to read this book. I purchased it with my allowance and then was told I had to take it back. Because I had crossed out the price on the book, the used bookseller wouldn't let me return the book for full price. I stood in the back of his store tears streaming down my face because this was the book that I thought I needed to read to understand what it meant to start middle school and all the changes my new found friends were going through. Up to that point I was raised by all men in a pretty neglectful environment. Now don't ask me why it took me over 30 years to finally get the courage (yes courage) to read this book. It was not the awful "sex' book my foster mother told me it would be, and I think if I read it back then, a lot of questions I was never given the answers to would have been more readily available for me. It was a quick read and should be something that girls of that age are afforded the opportunity to read. There is nothing in this book that might change how they behave, but it could give young girls at that age the confidence to have open and honest discussions with their mothers about this time in their lives.

Although this is an older book, it still touches on all the things young girls worry about like body image, boys, friends,and periods. Told in kid friendly first person, it's a true classic. My very bright 8 year old granddaughter absolutely devoured it!

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 experimental forms of teaching (ugh), (b) had extreme chips on their shoulders and were organizing unions to stick it to the man, or (c) filing for divorce. This equated to bare walls and zero pizza parties. The agony!

Worst yet, we didn't read any of the cool books all the other classes were reading! I remember getting sick and tired of hearing of this baby named "Fudge" (of all the crazy names), and all the trouble that he got into, from some friends in other classes.

So now, all these years later, I finally understand what all the hype was about, and for once it wasn't overstated. I LOVED Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing! Peter Hatcher, the 9-year-old protagonist, has a pretty great setup. He lives in New York City, close to Central Park, he's loving his 4th grade class, has nice friends...except his 2-year-old little brother, Fudge, keeps ruining things. He's a the cutest little monster you ever saw.

I would have loved to have read this as a child, especially when my little sister came into the world when I was 8. I didn't like her. She was a cutie, but she just disrupted everything. I felt like no one understood where I was coming from, least of all my parents, who could see no wrong in anything that she did. That's the beauty of this book, because while it is hilarious and cute, it's not patronizing and adult. I love the relationship Peter has with his mom--she's a bit of a sarcastic wit, and I like that.

One thing that made me laugh was when Peter was describing how cautious he had to be about walking in Central Park alone because of muggers and dope pushers. I thought to myself, this is not the NYC of You've Got Mail. This is the NYC of Klute in 1972! I will definitely be continuing with the series, and very soon.

Was delighted to find a nice, brand new, hard cover edition of this book that my mom gave to my four daughters thirty years ago, to give to my now tween granddaughter! An excellent "guide book" for young teens!:) Took awhile to come, but still got it in time for her birthday! Excellent marks to the seller!!!

This story made it hard for me to stop reading at night. I adore the four PTS's and how much Margret learns over the course of the year. However, this book may not be suitable for children under about ten years old. I say this because of the detail it goes into with things like religion and growing up. I really enjoyed this fantastic book.

My daughter, who likes Judy Blume, was hesitant to read a book about a boy. She blew through it in two days. Thanks Judy Blume for making me a great reader as a child and keeping my daughter motivated to read for enjoyment.
My 8yo old son loved this book. He picked this one up on his own without any coaxing from me for reading time every evening. He laughed out loud several times and had to stop and tell me about whatever funny thing was happening. He was so surprised to find out that his book wasn't written recently.
