What’s The Eight-Year-Old reading this week?


Our mostly-weekly survey of the tidbits that cross The Eight-Year-Old’s desk. This week, The Eight-Year-Old is shocked to learn that Mommyo has never read Judy Blume and takes steps to rectify that Great Injustice immediately. 

A sampling of this week’s books:

In the Before Times, as we like to refer to Mommyo’s elementary schooling here at Caterpickles, Judy Blume books were banned from my school library. Which is how I have achieved this Very Great Age without ever reading one. I mentioned this to The Eight-Year-Old one day when I found her buried nose deep in Judy Blume’s Double Fudge. She immediately slammed it shut and handed it to me.

The Eight-Year-Old, firmly: “Mommyo, you have GOT to read this.”

Mommyo: “Don’t you want to finish it first?”

The Eight-Year-Old: “It’s ok. I’ve read it twice already. Judy Blume is my absolute favorite author.”

Given the number of Ivy & Bean books that have passed through our house recently, I would have thought Annie Barrows was The Eight-Year-Old’s favorite author. Apparently not.
