Good for multiple generations

I loved this book as a kid, and now I’m reading it with my two youngest. I won’t get into a book review because everyone knows the story, and if you don’t, then read it (very short read for anyone above 4th grade).
What I appreciate most about this book is that it has the perfect balance of readability (for kids under 10), humor (for both kids and adults), relatable characters (adults and kids), and child appropriate plot that unfolds clearly for the little ones.
Best of all, we can all read at the same time. I have my original copy packed away in the garage, but who reads Physical books anymore? We all pile Amit the bed/floor/grass and pull out kindles, iPads, Fires, or whatever we want to read on. This allows all of us to read along at the same time. It also lets us take turns reading out loud while the others follow silently.
I can’t say enough about it. We’ll move on to the other Judy Blume books next.
