Iggie's House Reviews
For a child's book, the subject matter was handled rather non-complicated and explains the social disorder of that time in the 60s well. I recommend this book for adults as well as reading it with a younger child.
This is Judy Blume's first long book and I gotta say, I was very pleased with how much I enjoyed it. Although her books are a little outdated these days, I still felt this book connected to today's society. I don't have anything bad to say about the book itself and I do think if kids read this book, then it could teach about what goes on in even today's society. Very interesting story!
I love Judy Blume. A great book about racism.
Read with my son for school. Great read for 3rd graders.
Finding books that my daughter likes to read is a chore. Judy Blume usually delivers though, and this time was no different.
I accidentally bought it so its a bummer :-\ :-P :-P :-P :-P its was very very very very bad and sad
this book was simple story about a young girl named Winnie, who learns about the reality of her world through a week of friendship. it's a short and moderately easy read, but it's message can be observed by any age.
I love this honest look into the past that is just as true today. I just wish it took place over longer than a week.
