Tweens, ages 9-12, join our STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) book club. The group reads books about solving novel problems with engineering and technology. We'll introduce “Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing,” by Judy Blume, with a book trailer and activities. Everyone gets to take a copy of the book home to read.

The story is about a boy named Peter Hatcher who has a terrible problem: his little brother Fudge! Judy Blume got the idea for Fudge when she saw a news article about a toddler who ate the family’s pet turtle.

Log your time reading this book for summer reading club credit.
