Judy Moody and the Bucket List by Megan McDonald
Ages: 6 - 9 years
Illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds
Grade Level: 1 - 4
Another great story! I’ve never read Judy Moody before, but now I know why this series is so successful… great characters and a kid-friendly plot. In this book, Judy discovers her grandma has a bucket list and decides she needs one too. Along the way, she discovers how to earn money (scooping poop) and to ride a horse (actually a hinny). Judy wanted to go to Antarctica but didn’t make it. Instead she learned new ways to have fun and to make a difference. She also decides to add to her grandma’s list so she’ll live a little longer. Awesome sauce! (Now I know where that phrase comes from.) This is a great book!
