November is known for bringing out love and generosity in people and making them think about things they’re thankful for. It made us at CBAY think about that, too, so throughout the month of November we’re going to do a blog series called Thankful Reads. Each post we’ll highlight a CBAY author or employee and they’ll tell us about a book they’re particularly thankful for. First up in this series is author Jessica Lee Anderson!
Jessica writes, “I’m super grateful for all of Judy Blume‘s books, especially Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. That book title seemed to describe me exactly when I was in 4th grade as I was getting used to living in Texas having recently moved from Hawaii. I giggled my way through the story time and time again. I even got a pet turtle named Dribble. Fortunately, my turtle had a much happier ending and got to live in a pond. Judy Blume’s tales filled a special part of my childhood, and she motivated me to read more and more.”
