    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

    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 overw

    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 t

    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 boo

    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 torme

    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 lesson

    I LOVE Judy Blume She is my childhood for sure When I think about how my love of reading started it was the Big 3 for me Judy Blume, Beverly Cleary and Ann M Martin.I remember reading this one in school but not much about it It s basically about bullying a girl named Linda, whom everyone calls Blubber because shes overweight and she does an oral report in class about whales I didn t realize what a JERK the main character was Usually books about b
