This book teaches you that it doesn't matter how small you are if you want to do something because it just matters if you have the talent.
I liked the Judy Bloom book tales of a fourth grade nothing, so I think I might LOVE this book.
Our 8 year old daughter is not a fan of reading. We've looked for books that might retain her interest without luck before deciding on this one. I read Judy Blume when I was a kid and thought that maybe she would enjoy it to. Not only did she READ the book, she also enjoyed it. She was thrilled by the characters and talked to us about the things she read, getting excited about it all. For kids who just don't think they will ever enjoy reading, Judy Blume is definitely an author to consider!
I am the middle child and when I read this book I liked it because I felt like Freddy. When I finished reading it made me feel better.
