Humorous and educational, this 13th addition to the Judy Moody series is bound to satisfy fans of the quirky narrator. Judy's cheeky voice really shines through as she scratches off items such as "Learn to Do a Cartwheel" and "Invent Something." Some deeper lessons about mortality are given some attention but are handled gracefully and with care.

This is a good choice for early chapter book readers because of the variety of adventures that Judy has in her own neighborhood. She's a dreamer who doesn't need to wander too far from her house to find interesting things to do.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
