I laughed, great series!

I love the Judy Moody series, even if I'm almost 10. It has a lot of funny parts about saving the world. I loved this book, could read it twice, 5 stars, 7+!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (7 ):

This volume in the Judy Moody series is particularly successful as it presents important environmental issues in an age-appropriate way for early chapter book readers and middle graders. Judy's misguided initial attempts at conservation, along with Peter H. Reynolds' illustrations, keep young readers laughing, but meanwhile they also learn how kids as well as grown-ups can help protect endangered species and save natural resources. Judy Moody Saves the World is a funny story that may inspire children to be better caretakers of the natural world.

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.
