Bud Not Buddy Book Review

Bud, Not Buddy - Christopher Paul Curtis

So apparently I read this last year and already completely forgot that I did. I did read it for a class so would have read it again anyway. I still enjoyed it and am giving it the same review. 3.5/5 stars. It's a good children's book about history and orphanage during the Depression. 


Bud has left his orphanage and is off to find his father. His mother is dead and he hates living with the other children. All he wants to do is find his father and live with family of his own. Through his adventures, Bud see's all different things including towns that have bee greatly affected by the Great Depression. 


Enjoyable, even the second time around. I remembered the overall plot but that's about it. I barely remember the audio book from when I listened to it last year. This is one of the better books I have read for my children's lit class this year. And one I would recommend as a historical fiction for an elementary aged child.
