really liked it

I introduced Aidan to chapter books and the wonderful world of Judy Blume this week. We read it aloud every night before bed, and it was such fun to see him enjoy a book I loved as a child. It was also wonderful to watch him begin to understand that books can be just as enjoyable without pictures.

Superfudge brought the same laughs it did when I was a kid, but, reading it as a parent, I definitely found myself irritated at some points - lots of people telling one another to shut up, lots of name calling - stupid, dummy, etc. While I get that this is reality, with an impressionable six-year-old it wasn't exactly what I was hoping to see.

Warning to parents who may read this to young children - one part of the book entails a conversation about Santa not being real. It would be difficult for parent to help a child continue to believe in the myth after reading that section. My sister reminded me about this part (I had totally forgotten) and I was able to skip that [small] section without Aidan noticing. Phew!
