Hello Mrs. Blume
I'm writing to you because you are close to my early childhood memories that have carried over to my adult life .I am from scotch plains nj and went to evergreen school and remember you visiting and being so patcient and giving both with your time and books you gave us. I recently got married and my wife is a first yr kindergarten teacher after 10 yrs as a end grade teacher we were both talking about how kids are so behind in her district (Roselle Park nj) and I was tell I g her how when u came to see us even though I was a 1rst grader and to this day gave me the inspiration to read more.Mrs Blume/Cooper I know you are retired and enjoying YOUR time...but if u could in any way contact my wife and or school with maybe a inspiring word or two it may give these kids the motivation they need..
Hello Miss Judy!
I am 43, and well remember your books from when I was young. Our birth month and days are the same! I have since had my own children and now one granddaughter. I have always loved reading, and thanks to Mrs. Chalekien, my fourth grade teacher, I have very fond memories of several books she read us daily. So, as my children grew, 3 boys and 1 girl, I read to them. My first choices were your Fudge stories and Harry Potter. I was glad to learn you went to bat for our freedom to read your books and your freedom to write and distribute them. Thank you for sharing your wonderfully amazing imagination with us. I am in shock and awe of you! My life was truly blessed to have been touched by you. And I do remember the pamplets on menstruation in school. Funny how you couldn't be truthful about the ick. I guess there is no 'scientific' facts to substantiate the ick factors. I hope all is well. Love and blessings!
Dear Judy Blume
I love superfudge,tales of fourth grade nothing,otherwise none as sheela the grate and so on...
to Judy Blume
ps i am a girl
last night I went to the bookstore and came across the book: Are You There God, It's Me Margaret. I had never read this book as a child, however I had been a huge fan of the Fudge books. In a bout of nostalgia I grabbed the book and sat down for two hours immersed in Margaret's life. The book really touched me, and I found myself laughing out loud at some of the things that I related to, things that I can remember happening to me around the time that I was Margaret's age. I found the whole experience of reading something that was so close to my own childhood very soothing, and I just wanted to thank you for writing such great children's books.
I can't wait to read the Fudge books to my own children one day.
Hey, I love your books very much. I am glad that you became an author. Your books have really inspired me. When I grow up I would also love to be an author. I also write books of my own for my child life. I write them about my real life what goes on and everything. I write these books so I can remember what it was like from my childhood. I want to publish them when I grow up. I have this one book about my dad and I call it Tragdey at six. Anyways I would love for you to message me back!!!(:
I like your Fudge Books.
oh please please please make more fudge books I
really think there my favorite books oh please!!!
Hi, I'm Jordan and I read your book Summer Sisters! It was a really good book. I was wondering, what happened to Caitlin. Was she killed, or did she just go missing. What happened to Vix and Catlin's daughter? I have so many questions, but them are the main ones. Please write back.
Hi my name is Lilly. . I read one of your books and I thought that book was realllllly COOL. I LOVE to read, and mater a fact my house has 3 library's in it. One in my room,one in my little sisters room, and one big one in the TV room, it has books all over the walls! Well I guess this is the
i love your books!
i finished reading your book "blubber" it's sad that she gets bullied
but i guess everybody goes thorough that at some point.
P.P.P.S. I have Fudge Bucks at my house.
Dear Judy Blume,
Let me say that I am India's twin brother. I really love your books, especially Double Fudge, but I do not like Also Known As Sheila the Great, because the part where they write the note "if you come in here and you are a girl, I am going to come after you one day" - that is scary. Can you write more awesome books, please? Like especially with Fudge? Like when he's older like Pete and also when Tootsie is older.
P.S. I am also Fox's big brother and India is Fox's big sister.
P.P.S. Our schools are Horace Mann, Ethical Culture Fieldston and the Barnard Toddler Center.
Dear July Blume,
I love your books and I write books, too. Sometimes my brother is just like Fudge. He does stuff that is naughty and sometimes he says the words that you put in your book. My aunt writes books, too. And I really like your stories, especially the one where Fudge is still doing his usual mischief.
My mom gave me all the fudge books & I just wanted to
say I LOVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE your books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Judy blume,
I absuluty LOVE your books!! Our library teacher used to read us the book Freckle juice. I really felt like throwing up when the secret formula was read. Now I am reading the novel Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. I actully didn't read the whole book, but I was so excited so I peeked a little at the last chapter. My brother suggested me to read this book, and he told me something very sad was going to happen at the end of the story, so I couldn't wait!!! That stinky Fudge! Swallowing Dribble and laughing!! I love your amazing books. U R my favorite auther!!!!!
I really loved your books. I liked to read them since I was young, and loved to borrow your books from the library or purchase them. I really loved Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. It deals with the problems of young girls and preteens and teens like me can relate to it. I liked the book The One in the Middle is the Green Kangaroo, it is so relatable. I love to read your books at night.

Dear Judy Blume,
I loved Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. It encouraged me and my sister to be like Fudge and Peter. I would be Peter and my sister wood be Fudge. It was the best 4th grade book I ever read in my life.
Dear Judy Blume,
I like your Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing. My favorite part was when Peter got a dog. I was sad when Fudge ate Peter's little Dribble. That was a bad thing that he did. From your friend,
Dear Judy,I love the book Freckle Juice how did you come up with the story for the book?
I JUST LOVE YOUR BOOKS SO MUCH. PLEASE MAKE MORE SUPERFUDGE
I have read almost all of your books and they've inspired me so much. I believe my favorite book of yours is Forever. It was just so heartwarming. I felt like I was a character in the book and so my question here is: What do you recommend for people who want to become authors and how to pursue their dream of becoming one.
Dear Judy Blume,
This is my first time reading your books. My dad told me that my grandpa was your teacher. I really like your books! My favorite characters are Fudge and Jimmy Fargo. I liked the part when Fudge ate Dribble.
Dear Judy Blume,
I loved your books. I can't wait to read another book. How do you write books? I'm going to read more books that you wrote. At school my class read a Judy Blume book. My class wrote you a note too.
28 years ago I embarked on an amazing journey, when I discovered Judy Blume books. I wasn't a great reader, but I remember falling asleep reading, because I couldn't put them down. Now I have my own 12 year old and she is also hooked! I have received the long list of Judy Blume books wanterd for Christmas. I'm glad they can bring her the pleasure I remember so many years ago. Thank you Judy Blume. x
my name is linda and before I have read your books i was more like a sport girl and did not like to read and today i steal like sports but I also like reading only your books. I have read all of your fudge books and I like all of them, the one I most liked was otherwise known as sheila the great.
I revisited your beloved novel Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. with my 10-year-old daughter. We discussed as much as we read. A great experience. Girls today still identify with Margaret.
We blogged about it here: https://spineonline.squarespace.com/carole-besharah/2014/10/10/and-boy-books-and-bras-oh-my

Dear Mrs.Judy Blume I loved your book of Tales Of A Fourth Grade Nothing this is my first time writing to a writer so I would like to say hi. I would like to know if it is hard being a writer? What is it like? I would like to know because I'm thinking about being a writer when I grow up. I'm wondering what I should make a book out of. I'm a animal person so I would like to get some advice from you. Hope I get to hear from you! Sincerely,
Dear Judy Bloom,
I loved the part that when Fudge ate Dribbles now that was crazy and had to go to the hospital. I also liked it when Fudge now that was really really funny. I thought that a pet turtle would be a good pet.How long have you been a writer? And did you have your sons name in the book? If you did my teacher said that you did.
