I enjoy books for the young ones that give them a good lesson on life and give them a chuckle or laugh while doing it. Be happy with the way you look, be satisfied with yourself and hidden in that message is one that well shows there are no free lunches in life. the 1971 edition I have has some very well done black and white drawings which are quite charming themselves. This is a great book to read to a class as it creates much discussion and allows the children to relate their own wishes and discuss them. This is one of those books that I hope does not go out of print as it has a timeless quality about it. Highly recommend.

THE END By:Emily DeRouen Lake Charles,LA 8 years old

A classic

I remember reading this when I was a kid and when I saw it on my seven year old's summer reading list, I had to buy it for him. We have been reading the book together and we have BOTH been giggling over it. My son teases me because I have a lot of freckles -- he thought I drank some freckle juice! LOL! Judy Blume's books are just as good as I remember them.


Are your kids bored? How about a fun book that is easy to read, not too long, and funny?Do you want freckles as much as Andrew does? What happens when he buys a freckle recipe from a girl in his class? Will Andrew have as many freckles as Nicky? They cover his face, ears, and back of his neck. After mixing the ingredients at home and drinking the juice, Andrew gets a big surprise!Freckle Juice is also a good choice to read aloud to kids, as with a number of other Judy Blume books.As a children's book author, I highly recommend "Freckle Juice" to kids and grown-ups. It's a wonderful book that will be read over and over for many years!Richard W. Carlson Jr., Children's Book Author

Sweet And Very Funny...

See story summary above. Wonderful story about a grade school boy who desperately wants to look like someone else, and in the end learns to love himself just the way he is. Wonderful way for children to learn respect and self-esteem.Should be required reading for grades K-3.

Freckle Juice in Margaret Hits the Big Screen
Margaret Hits the Big Screen
Published by Ashly Moore Sheldon • May 04, 2023

You might say that Judy Blume is having a moment. The release of the film adaptation of Are You There God, It's Me Margaret, as well as a new documentary about the beloved author, has been creating lots of buzz. But then again, it's hardly the first time that Blume has gotten people talking.
