The A World
I’m about to admit something that many women in my age-group would be embarrassed to admit: I have no significant childhood memories of reading Judy Blume. I never read Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret. I never read Then Again, Maybe I Won’t. I may have read Blubber, but the only thing I remember about it is the cover image of a girl standing in front of a blackboard with a whale drawn on it.
However, as an aficionado of children’s literature, I have an appreciation for how influential Judy Blume’s work has been and, with Blume’s book Tiger Eyes now a film, I feel inspired to salute the contribution of Blume and other children’s book authors by saying a bit about what kids’ books have taught me over the years.
