Over the next few weeks we will be posting up recommended reads from the teachers and other adults around the school. Most of the books are available in the School Library and those that aren’t are available in the local libraries. We really recommend getting a library card and visiting any of the Gloucestershire Libraries.
Mr Sadler Recommends – Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing by Judy Blume
Some people have favourite books that speak to them, and my favourite book does just that. In 1991, I was about to turn 10, when my new head teacher Mr Jones introduced me to Judy Blume – an American author.
Her books were about growing up and my favourite book featured a 10 year old boy called Peter and his annoying brother, Fudge! Mr Jones brought these books to life with funny voices and bags of enthusiasm. I still read these amazing books to the children I teach and my own children.
