Forever In Blue
Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood - Ann Brashares

(The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood)

 

It has obviously been quite a while since I read these books and was wondering, is this the same pants from the first book? If so, I think the real mystery is how these four girls were all able to fit the same pants for four summers!

 

I don't know why I got a part four in a series (without part 2 and 3) but, as the story is almost the same in every book (or so I'm told) it doesn't really matter.

I've only read the first book and this one, and it already felt repetitive. I wouldn't recommend it.

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing ★★☆☆☆
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing (paperback) - Judy Blume

Probably my least favorite of Judy Blume’s children’s books so far. I seem to remember enjoying it as a child, but unlike the Ramona and Beezus and Henry books, it has no charm for me as an adult reader. Peter is cursed with an obnoxious little brother who gets all the attention and ruins everything. Originally written in 1972, the substance of the story doesn’t rise above its dated references and gender stereotypes.

 

The only other thing I can say is, poor Dribble. He probably wished Peter didn’t have a little brother, either.

Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing - 28/120pg
Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing (paperback) - Judy Blume

New York City in 1972? And this kid is 9 years old.    O_o

 

     We live near Central Park. On nice days I like to play there after school. I'm allowed to walk over by myself as long as I'm going to be with friends. My mother doesn't want me hanging around the park alone.

     For one thing, Jimmy Fargo has been mugged three times - twice for his bicycle and once for his money. Only he didn't have any to give the muggers. 

     I've never been mugged. But sooner or later I probably will be. My father's told me what to do. Give the muggers whatever they want and try not to get hit on the head.

Yes, these books are all on Kindle. Yes, these books were all found and purchased for free. Yes, the ones that list as grade levels have some really nice photography. Yes, they have some really good, but sparse information. They just did very simple information and again I feel that the books are too simple and too easy for the grades listed. 

 

If you have younger kids, these might be good starters.

I realize that these state that they are for 4th and 5th grades, but I felt that they might have some information that would be good for what we are studying, but these were too young. I felt that they would have been good for kindergarten or 1st graders over 4th or 5th graders. 

 

The pictures in the books were very well done and the wording was definitely for teaching, but was definitely too young for the grades mentioned.
