Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing

Judy Blume
I loved this book. It's a story about a little boy has a little brother and is not sure what to make of him yet. It's a typical sibling rivalry story and a hilarious one at that. I'm the oldest of three siblings and can say that I've had a few of the experiences that Judy Blume describes in the story myself. Anyone who has siblings can relate to the story and will probably find solace in knowing that they're not the only one that has to go through the trials and tribulations of dealing with another small human and your family who isn't yourself. I would use this in the classroom by giving it to students to read as either small book club in groups or as a real loud to go through with the class. I think there's a lot of great opportunities for character analysis in terms of character development within the story. There's also a lot of opportunities to discuss theme, emotions within text, making predictions, and relating text to self. I personally think that there is much to learn about this book and students would enjoy it in the process.
