    Well, if you think that nothing has improved in American classrooms since 1974 may I submit this book as evidence Holy humpback whale, this middle grades novel, Blubber, is like a relic from a time capsule, and my 11 year old accused me several times of making up parts of it as I read it to her aloud this week Does she really think I m that hard up for entertainment I assured her that this book was based on a

    I was at the library with my children yesterday when I noticed the Judy Blume books I loved Judy Bloom when I was younger So I thought it would be interesting to reread some of them again Blubber is the one I read last night I remember when I read it the first time that I really related to the main character, Jill It is about a 5th grade class who begins to pick on Linda who is overweight This is day in and out

    The genius of this book is not that it doesn t impart any moral, it does, but it does so subtly, without condescension There s no comeuppance for the ringleading bully, no adult interference to save the tormented Hell, the girl who is picked on isn t all that sympathetic It s a dark little book, and the darkness works beautifully.

    My signed copy of Blubber is one of my most prized possessions This is an honest and sometimes painful to read portrayal of bullying It does not wrap up neatly, as few real life bullying situations do, but it does have some important lessons After reading this book, it is comforting to find Judy Blume s personal note about why she wrote it I wrote Blubber because bullying is often kept a secret by the kids who see i

    I finished this book days ago and here I sit, still not entirely sure how to review this I didn t like the bookmuch I hated Jill I never found anything to like about her at all She went along with the crowd and even when the tables were turned, she showed no compassion at all, with the attitude of She shouldn t let other people get to her The bullying was traumatic to read about I d been bullied as a child in the 70s an

    What is a 46 year old man doing reading literature directed for 12 year old girls I could say that my girlfriend made me read it, but it was only a recommendation and I went along willingly I am glad I did so In Blubber a middle school Nazi and her cadre of sheep persecute a marginally overweight girl This book was written at a time prior to all children being fat I imagine now they would pick on the slender child This bo

    I m not sure what the first Judy Blume book I read was it may have been Freckle Juice but my love for her definitely ignited when our teacher read us Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing when I was in the fourth grade class of St Mary s I read a lot, but Judy Blume was the first author I really loved and that love demanded I read all of her books available at the time including Wifey, which Iregret I had a boxed set of her books

    4.5 The world is full of books I ve missed as a child I liked this one Not as funny as Fudge stories, but in a way you re not getting bored, even if it s for five grade teens What I liked about this book, was the good massage for schoolchildren who are bullying and are getting bullyed This is one of the books you read and tell yourself I should read this to my children Not because it s a good story, but because it s a good le

    While I most certainly have NEVER found Blubber all that enjoyable as a personal reading experience and really, as someone who did experience much nasty bullying at school,than a trifle too close to home so to speak to be in any way comforting, cheering or uplifting I have indeed always considered both then and now that Judy Blume has most definitely and painfully realistically captured not only bullying, but also that the torm
