I absolutely LOVE this book! I read it when it was first published and knew that my kids would like it so I got the audio version for them and they still quote from it even though they are grown now. Just this last weekend we were in the car for several hours and so I popped Bud Not Buddy into the CD player and it was so fun to hear the older kids saying to the younger ones "Listen carefully to this next part it's my favorite" or "Oh I remember this! This part is hilarious!"
It was kind of a bonding moment for our family because it's something that the older kids could share with the younger ones and it gives them a connection that they didn't have before. There were many moments throughout the book when we were all laughing out loud. There really arent very many books that my entire family enjoys but this is definitely one of them. Kudos to Christopher Paul Curtis for creating a book that can be enjoyed by all ages, races, genders, and walks of life.
