    Realistic Fiction I never read Judy Moody as a young student because it is a never series of books for middle elementary aged students, but I really enjoyed reading it now as a college student. I know a lot of third graders who love Judy Moody books, and my hopes as a teacher would be that students who really love Judy Moody would be hooked enough to read the other books in the series, and hopefully even try out other series that have similar characters and themes. This Judy Moody story is about Realistic Fiction I never read Judy Moody as a young student because it is a never series of books for middle elementary aged students, but I really enjoyed reading it now as a college student. I know a lot of third graders who love Judy Moody books, and my hopes as a teacher would be that students who really love Judy Moody would be hooked enough to read the other books in the series, and hopefully even try out other series that have similar characters and themes. This Judy Moody story is about Judy's trip to Boston and how she brought home the many themes of the American Revolution that she saw and learned about on her trip. She writes her own Declaration of Independence, has her own Boston Tea Party, and creates her own Freedom Trail. In the end, she didn't need any of those to become more responsible and independent, but hopefully the integration of so many historical facts throughout the whole story would keep students engaged and interested in not only the story, but the history behind this specific Judy Moody book. I would hope that if a student were reading this independently in my class, he or she would maybe have some background knowledge of the American Revolution or Boston and be intrigued to research the information further. Megan McDonald provides a brief but detailed explanation of many of the historical points that with some background research, students could really get into more information about the American Revolution. I would love to see a journal response to this book if a student read it independently. He or she could talk about the American Revolution, write his or her own Declaration of Independence, and relate this story to his or her own life experiences such as seeing museums or taking trips to historical landmarks. As previously mentioned, I would hope that Judy Moody books and other series would help hook students to read more of that series, more by that author, or other similar books. This is a great way to keep students reading and interested in what books they want to read. In addition, I think students would be able to connect to the Judy Moody books. She is around the same age as them and the setting of her books are usually at school or at home with her parents and younger brother. While Judy Moody's character is a little erratic, students could connect to her as if reading a friend's journal or even putting themselves in her shoes. This book is targeted for ages 6-9, so it may be easy for some fifth grade students, but I think it would be a great fit for this specific book and the whole series for grades 3-5.

    Judy Moody Declares Independence actually taught me something! From my recollection, I've never heard of Sybil Ludington. I enjoyed Mood's trip to Boston and how she reenacted the Paul Revere Ride after an emergency situation needed her to. I thought it was brilliant that to show she was independent she started doing things around the house without being asked to. I could learn a thing or two from her. I didn't understand why she received an allowance though... Judy Moody Declares Independence actually taught me something! From my recollection, I've never heard of Sybil Ludington.

    I really needed a simple reminder of the old days. Immensely enjoyed this at 22. I read these books when I was about 8 or 9 and I don't know how I missed this volume. I'm kind of glad that I did. It feels like it was meant to be read right now. I really needed a simple reminder of the old days. Immensely enjoyed this at 22.

    Wow, this is humorous! For children who want to learn about the American Revolution, this can be used. Also, for independent-minded children, who look forward to getting independence! After Judy learns about the American Revolution, she is in a Revolutionary mood. She wants independence from brushing her hair, not getting more allowance, having to do homework, etc. Loved it! It's humorous and funny, quite good for all, I say. Happy reading! Wow, this is humorous! For children who want to learn about the American Revolution, this can be used.

    My son has been really enjoying the Stink series, but we didn't have anymore at the moment and tried a book that focuses on his sister, Judy Moody. Stink appeared in the book often enough that it didn't seem like a "girl book" for my little guy. He enjoyed it, but he's ready to go back to books where the focus is on little brother. Fun book with great historical references! Recommended.

    This book was an inspiration for me in 3rd grade and was the reason I did Sybil Ludington on a bottle project where you have to do a historical person, write about them, and make a bottle representing the them. Of course nobody had a clue who she was but that’s what I love so! Anyways Judy Moody in general had inspired me to not brush my hair.

It inspired me to live a more messy lifestyle which made me into who I am today. I never really enjoyed brushing my hair but I clearly remember never brushing it after I started reading the books, so the no brushing hair lasted until 5th grade at a new school because nobody knew me, but since March of 2020 when quarantine started, I began to stop brushing my hair again. I also cut it so I have to never brush it even if I’m forced to. So in conclusion my hygiene has definitely been influenced by this character. Me and Judy are practically besties and now that I’m thinking about it, maybe my personality has become really similar to hers. Almost everyday a moment from the book lives in my head. I’d rate this book 5 stars but I haven’t read it in years so I gotta check over certain parts in case they go against my political beliefs.

Learning to be your own person and become independent. It was a great novel to open kid’s eyes to the possibilities out there. McDonald did a perfect job with promoting strong female women of history to be Judy’s role model. The plot was quirky and fun, just as Judy is. It also showed a more mature side of her character, when it came to her brother. The characters are all really well created, and even the parents are done well because they are believable, and relatable. Overall, this was another great installment to the Moody series.

    Juliette gave this book infinity stars, Jackson 1,000,000. Juliette has been reading, or at least checking out and starting, many of these books but this was the first I’ve read. I enjoyed Judy’s enthusiasm and her interpretation of words (pursuit of happiness became purse of happiness). I didn’t like how she kept referring to herself - “I, Judy Moody, took a dump” or whatnot (yeah, I’m tired so here comes the sarcasm). Every time she said “Rare!” I was like “Gretchen, fetch is not happening.” S Juliette gave this book infinity stars, Jackson 1,000,000.

    It is very cool book I think because kids or young adult like me get a history lesson delivered with humor, as Judy petitions for her own freedoms, such as more allowance. Such a fun book. In the beginning of this book, I don't like with how Judy treats her brother, Stink. Lol however; you will see what would Judy did for her brother in the middle of the story. I love their love and hate relationship :)) I am from Indonesia and because of this book I know a little bit about the history of Boston It is very cool book I think because kids or young adult like me get a history lesson delivered with humor, as Judy petitions for her own freedoms, such as more allowance.

    Judy is all about getting to do what she wants, but when things don't go her way after a trip to good old Boston Harbor, well let's just say that she throws a tea party of her own. Does it result in extra rights, freedoms, or personal liberties? Not exactly...but it does help her see that working for those rights she feels entitled to is GOOD thing...and anything worth having is worth the effort. **copy received for review Judy is all about getting to do what she wants, but when things don't go her way after a trip to good old Boston Harbor, well let's just say that she throws a tea party of her own.

    Classic Judy Moody. This is such a great series. I loved how this book was educational and still entertaining. Judy Moody is such an independent character in general, but her independence is really highlighted in this hilarious story as she tries to convince her parents not to treat her like a baby anymore. A great, quick read. Nice continuation of the series.

    Oh Judy Moody! As a a teacher I know the Judy Moody series teaches my students reading fluency, new vocabulary, literal comprehension, and inferencing from the deep characters. Students also walk away with an understanding of a moral lesson and an overarching theme. Judy Moody Declares Independence is a hot item in my classroom library! Thank you Megan McDonald!

    Judy Moody is always full of surprises. These books always make kids laugh and are full of adventure and fun. Judy Moody Declares Independence is no exception to the laughs and adventure. We follow Judy in her search of freedom from her parents. Great for young readers, especially those in third grade who may relate to her third grade problems.

    This is a cute book. I read it with three of our children (ages 10, 8, 6) to give them a little history in a fun way. It was well written, and Judy wasn't as snippy as I remember in other books. The kids enjoyed it as well. This is a cute book. I read it with three of our children (ages 10, 8, 6) to give them a little history in a fun way.

    Genre: Fiction Copyright Date: 2005 A humorous story of Judy Moody and her love for stories that took place in history, topics that include the Boston Tea Party, Declaration of Independence, and Sybil Ludington. I think this is a fun book that students can read for pleasure.

    The history of the American Revolution is accessible to children through the character, Judy Moody. My favorite part is Megan McDonald incorporates Sybil Ludington’s story and addresses the absence of women in our history books.

    This book is awesome! I like how Judy Moody is trying to get freedom from most of her responsibilities. It tells me that kids don't always have to do everything their parents say, they can be a little bit free from stuff that are not that important. This book is awesome!
