Review: The One in the Middle is the Green Kangaroo by Judy Blume

Synopsis: Lately second grader Freddy Dissel has that left-out kind of feeling. Life can be lonely when you're the middle kid in the family who feels like "the peanut butter part of a sandwich," squeezed between an older brother and little sister. But now for the first time it's Freddy's chance to show everyone how special he is and, most of all, prove it to himself! (from the back of the book)

Review: I read this book once many years, but didn't remember until I saw the pictures. Amy Aitken's delightful illistrations enhances the story. I enjoyed ready about how Freddy Dissel found a way to be himself and to come to terms with being the overlooked one. This is an excellent book to read to young kids who may feel they get lost in the shuffle. I highly recommend.
