  1. 1. Double Fudge by Judy Blume. Peter is totally embarrassed by his little brother Fudge and his wacky cousins, Flora and Fauna, who turn his life upside down when they come to visit. About the Author Judy Blume grew up in Elizabeth, New Jersey. She has written many stories for children and teens. When her books were first published, they were hailed as being realistic and being about what really mattered to children and teens. Judy’s dialog seemed fresh and natural – the way that kids really speak to each other. In 1996 the American Library Association honored her with the Margaret A. Edwards Award for Lifetime Achievement. She has won over ninety awards for her writing. Judy is the founder and trustee of The Kids Fund, a charitable and educational foundation. Judy lives on islands up and down the East Coast with her husband George Cooper. They have three grown children and a wonderful grandchild. Judy Blume’s official bio can be found at Activities Create a Footprint mural: Buy a roll of butcher block paper and some tempera paint; warn the children to wear old clothes and have a fun and messy time. Design your own money: Show samples of currency from around the world. Talk about the various symbols on currency. Provide paper, pens, paint, crayons, etc. for children to create their own money. Make a mask: There are many, many ways to make a mask. My favorite is to take a big paper grocery bag, cut out holes for eyes and mouth and decorate with paint, markers, crayons, colored construction paper, fabric, yarn, glitter, feathers, etc. Have a Halloween costume party. This sounds like a lot more fun when it doesn't happen on Halloween!
