Roundtable Reading: Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing by Judy Blume

Recommended for ages 8 and up (younger kids welcome as listeners)

  • Reading led by

    Adoria Williams is a librarian at Jefferson Elementary School, Berkeley.

What do you think it would be like to have a three-year-old brother or sister? Peter, because he’s the oldest, must deal with his little brother Fudge’s disgusting cuteness, his constant meddling with Peter’s stuff, and other grave offenses, one of which is almost too much to bear. Get to know the Hatcher brothers as you begin reading with us at the museum, then take the book home to learn how Peter deals with his boisterous but lovable younger brother.
