Older kids are always cool. They’ve got the freedom to do and say what they want. Youngsters envy that. To elementary school kids, college students are tops. J. Moody, in her latest adventure, experiences college firsthand. With an entertaining storyline, “Judy Moody Goes to College” will please fans of the series, but may not be a good starting point for the uninitiated.

When Judy’s substitute teacher says she need some help in math, her parents set up a tutor. Judy is not pleased, until she fin

Το διάβασα από την ελληνική μετάφραση (Η Μιμή η Νευρική πάει...πανεπιστήμιο - Εκδ. Μεταίχμιο). Κακό. Κάκιστο. Αν αυτά είναι τα βιβλία που έχουν τόση ζήτηση στα παιδιά σήμερα, δεν απορώ καθόλου για το επίπεδο της γλώσσας στον προφορικό και τον γραπτό τους λόγο. Απογοητεύτηκα πλήρως...

''Judy Moody Goes To College'' by Megan McDonald is a good book you may think this book is for 3rd graders but this book is for grades 3-5. the book is really easy to read so I read this book as a holiday book. I recommend this book to you if you like Humor and Comedy books
Judy Moody could be a little of a brat when she comes back from college but she does learn to love math because of her tutor. I thought that the students all aspiring to go to college was great and Judy's art class painting was something I wish I could have done in college. I just wish her attitude could have been better or improved like it has been in the last books I've read after she learned about something.
I just finished this book with my daughter and it was just "okay". This, of course, came out way after I was a young child (I enjoyed the likes of Ramona Forever), but it had little nuances that were annoying to wade through (such as every chapter and reference being directed to the word 'attitude'). It didn't consistently hold my daughter's attention, however, I will take some blame for that as she may still be too young to really understand and enjoy a book such as this. All-in-all, two stars.

I'm reminded why I loved Judy Moody so much as a kid. She's sassy, smart, and confident. It was nice to return to a character I adored as a kid, and was one of the reasons I fell in love with reading. Judy Moody Goes to College was a great addition to the series!

I really like this book because Judy finds a tutor and her tutor has a really funny sense of style and Judy thinks that how collage people dress and she goes to school dressing like a weirdo and her friends ask her why she is dressing like that and she says that that's what collage people wear.

When Judy finds she’s not doing so well in math class her parents decide to get her a tutor, a college student. This means Judy gets to go to college every weekend to not only learn math, but learn how to be a college kid. In this eighth installment, Judy is off on bigger and brighter adventures. It’s fun to watch Judy become older than she really is to prove how smart she is, although she doesn’t need to do this as readers know how smart she is through her love for learning. The plot was super ...more

This book is another great part of the Judy Moody girl detective series. This book begins by focusing on the fact that Judy is very moody. Today, she is not in a good mood at all. She is actually in a very bad mood today. Her bad mood all comes from that fact that she is doing not so hot with her math class and homework. Judy doesn't want to get help from anyone for her math, but she ends up having to have help. Her teachers tells her that she has to get some help, so off they go to find moody J ...more

1) I like this book because it shows you how college really feels and how difficult it is to be in college and because you get to read about a youngh girl who feels the expirence of going to college.For example on page 26 it shows how Judy Moody's math tutor is a college student so she(Judy) gets to do college stuff.Another example is when Judy has to go to different classes and has to take class on Saturday.This shows that college is not like regular school.

In Judy Moody Goes to College, Judy is like every younger girl who admires an older sister or an older friend. Judy had to get a math tutor and Judy quickly became obsessed with Chloe. She wanted to dress like her, be friends with her friends and do all of the things that Chloe does while she was at college. Judy used the vocabulary that Chloe used, including the words “peeps”, “the bomb” and “peace out”. Judy wanted to constantly be with Chloe and hang out with her friends. In the beginning of

I will admit to indulging in some selections from the children's section. I like the Stink series by Megan McDonald. Judy Moody is his younger sister. I haven't read many of these, but this one caught my eye. It is very well written, and made me wish that I had a math tutor like Chloe! I might have learned more math if someone had made it fun for me like she did for Judy!

Now in third grade, Judy is disappointed that her favorite teacher, Mr. Todd, is still in Italy at a teacher's conference. She

Judy Moody has always been one of my favorite series book. I decided on Judy Moody Goes to College because I am currently a college student. (I found it appropriate) Judy Moody was clearly in a bad mood, but she was also upset that she was going to have to get a tutor in math. She was so upset and thought of the worst possible for her new tutor. Well by surprise her tutor ended up being a college student. Judy Moody was then extremely excited because she was going to get to hang out with an “old ...more

Judy Moody takes a turn in this book, she is going to college!

Yes, now I hear you all say, College???? But that girl is only a child? Well, thanks to a new teacher at school Judy now has to take a tutor, and that tutor is at college! It was a nice change of scenery, though I was a bit annoyed with Judy throughout the book.

Why? Well, like with some of the other books, she is so easily impressionable, and will drop anything and everything if she finds a new victim to play the role model. Throughou

I absolutely loved this book. Just like every other Judy Moody book, its very entertaining and something that I think all kids (especially girls) would love. This story is about Judy who ends up needing a tutor for math. Judy is not very happy about this situation because she does not want people to think that she is a baby. Her feelings change when she realizes that her tutor is actually a college student. Judy gets to go to the college campus and hang out with her tutor. Judy ends up letting t ...more

This was the third book in the Judy Moody series and the eighth book with Stink and Judy Moody in it that I have read. I love the characters. The writing is wonderful. The illustrations are amazing. Together Megan and Peter have created some wonderful books to be shared by the whole family. One of the greatest strengths of these books is that even though there are now 23 books between the Judy Moody books, the Stink Moody books and the two cross-over books, they can be read in almost any order. ...more

This story is about a girl named Judy Moody which goes to college and lives with her mom, dad, brother and cat. The setting is at school in college and at home. The plot is that she goes to college and has a uber-rare tutor. The problem she is facing is that she is having another teacher and it’s not Mr. Todd it’s a teacher named Mrs.Grossman. My opinion is why would they make a lady ( which is Judy Moody’s teacher ) be named Mrs.Grossman. My evidence is on page 1 which says she had a new teache ...more

I loved this book. It was about when Judy’s teacher isn’t happy with her grades she assigns Judy to a tutor. The way Judy thought her tutor was going to treat her was something that she would see in her nightmares. Judy thought that tutoring was baby games, flash cards, and unhelpful skills that somebody would be teaching her. Instead Judy gets a surprise of her real tutor which is a college girl names Cloe and takes Judy to cafes and science labs with a bunch of other college people and gives h ...more

I am not a fan of books that use a lot of cute-speak (e.g. Junie B). I know the kids enjoy them. I have listened in while a large group of 2nd graders listened avidly to another teacher reading Junie B. But this is my review, so I get to say what I like. I found this book annoying. It stretches credulity to think that even third graders would be excited about "going to college" - excited enough for all of them to fail a math test. I can't actually believe that a whole class full of 3rd graders w ...more

A girl with green eyes and a messy ponytail greeted them. “You must be the Moodys.” “I’m Richard Moody, and this is my daughter, Judy,” said Dad. “Hi, I’m Chloe. Chloe Canfield. My friends call me C-squared, since my name has two Cs and I go to CC.
