    I used to love Judy Blume s funny and imaginative writing and realistic portraits of family life through the eyes of a child when I was younger This book is no exception Not a book I overly love any I m almost twenty one years old , but it has a great message for kids about finding the thing that makes them special even when they feel ignored or left out Freddy finds his passion in acting, taking a part in the school play I think in big families, siblings can often feel a bit of competi I used to love Judy Blume s funny and imaginative writing and realistic portraits of family life through the eyes of a child when I was younger This book is no exception Not a book I overly love any I m almost twenty one years old , but it has a great message for kids about finding the thing that makes them special even when they feel ignored or left out Freddy finds his passion in acting, taking a part in the school play I think in big families, siblings can often feel a bit of competition The One in the Middle is the Green Kangaroo is a book which shows that to stand out, you don t have to compete for attention You just have to be yourself A good and welcome message in an era of constant social media saturation and viral videos This book is still relevant today and is definitely still a wonderful children s story

    After I read In the Unlikely Event I decided I finally needed to read or re read all the Judy Blume books, and this one was first in the list This was okay, but I am definitely not the target audience Kids would probably like it, though Obviously.

    I have always enjoyed Judy Blume s books I loved them when I was a child and I m excited to share them with our girls I usually associate her work with middle grade and YA fiction, but she also has a few fun picture books, too This is a fun story about the frustration of being the middle child as well as one boy s efforts to find a place in the spotlight The narrative is short and engaging and the illustrations are colorful and complement the story nicely I don t remember this story from my I have always enjoyed Judy Blume s books I loved them when I was a child and I m excited to share them with our girls I usually associate her work with middle grade and YA fiction, but she also has a few fun picture books, too This is a fun story about the frustration of being the middle child as well as one boy s efforts to find a place in the spotlight The narrative is short and engaging and the illustrations are colorful and complement the story nicely I don t remember this story from my childhood, but it has a timeless quality that makes it still relevant today We enjoyed reading this book together

    Tired of being the middle child, a second grade boy takes a part in the school play, something neither his older brother nor his younger sister has ever done After he is successful in the play, he no longer cares about being the middle child, even though he continues to face the same middle child issues While it s clear that he feels better about himself as a result of his performance, it s muddy what that has to do with the story s main conflict of being a middle child, which isn t ever resol Tired of being the middle child, a second grade boy takes a part in the school play, something neither his older brother nor his younger sister has ever done After he is successful in the play, he no longer cares about being the middle child, even though he continues to face the same middle child issues While it s clear that he feels better about himself as a result of his performance, it s muddy what that has to do with the story s main conflict of being a middle child, which isn t ever resolved

    I suddenly got this wild idea that I would read Judy Blume s entire bibliography this summer I realized that while there were many of Blume s titles that I loved, there were many I had never read and decided to just do it I ve been in a monstrous reading slump and figured Blume s short, easy reads would be what the doctor ordered I m reading the books in chronological order of release date because I can and The One in the Middle is a Green Kangaroo came first Published first in 1969, it is I suddenly got this wild idea that I would read Judy Blume s entire bibliography this summer I realized that while there were many of Blume s titles that I loved, there were many I had never read and decided to just do it I ve been in a monstrous reading slump and figured Blume s short, easy reads would be what the doctor ordered I m reading the books in chronological order of release date because I can and The One in the Middle is a Green Kangaroo came first Published first in 1969, it is the story of a boy named Freddy who feels the weight of being his family s middle child He is neither big and important or young and cute All of his clothes are hand me down and when his baby sister is born he must share a room Freddy decides to do something to set himself apart and becomes the star of the school play and then he doesn t mind being in the middle so much any This book is nearly 40 years old, but I read it aloud to the girls and it didn t feel dated or old fashioned It was just the right book for kids who may feel overshadowed by their older or younger siblings This book would be a great transitional book for early readers My middle daughter is going into third grade but reads above her grade level She liked this story, but at only 50 pages this book really wouldn t be a challenge for her at all I m thinking first grade students would get the most out of this book, but it would also be a great read aloud choice as it can be read, in totality, in about 20 25 minutes
