Description (from Amazon): Judy Moody is in a mood. Not a good mood. And definitely NOT a math mood. The substitute teacher in Class 3T thinks Judy's math skills need improving. So Judy has to start meeting with a math tutor. Does this mean flash cards? Does this mean baby games? Does this mean school on weekends? But when Judy meets her tutor — a sick-awesome college student with an uber-funky sense of style — and gets a glimpse of college life, Judy's bad math-i-tude turns into a radical glad-i-tude. Pretty soon, Judy's not only acing her math class; she's owning it. Time to say good-bye to Judy Moody, old skool third-grader, and say hello to Miss College! Small-tall upside-down backward non-fat capp with extra whip, anyone?
Review (view on YouTube):
Clean Read? Yes.
Cool Mom Note: If you don't like kids with attitude, this won't be the right book for your child (you). Judy definitely has one most of the time. We talked about that when my daughter started reading the books. That being said, my daughter really enjoys the humor in the book. Two years later, this book has survived multiple times of thinning out our books - high praise in our home.
Disclosure: Neighbor Girl purchased this book, Judy Moody Goes to College, with her own money. We received no monetary or in-kind compensation for our honest review.
Be sure to visit both Megan McDonald's website and Peter Reynold's website both are refreshingly fun.
