Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Judy dreads the idea of getting outside help with math, but she quickly changes her mind when she visits a local college to meet Chloe, her new tutor. Besides adopting a more positive attitude toward math, Judy quickly takes Chloe as her role model in fashion, decorating, and slang. Although McDonald occasionally pokes gentle fun at Judy’s imitation (and occasional misunderstanding) of college ways, there’s no doubt where her sympathies lie. An appended glossary defines terms such as geck, roomie, ’rents, and sick-awesome. Penned with expression and verve, Reynolds’ ink drawings illustrate this amusing addition to the Judy Moody series. Grades 2-4. --Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
Judy Moody is shocked to discover a new teacher in her classroom, a substitute named Mrs. Grossman. It seems that the class's beloved teacher, Mr. Todd, is in Italy at a teaching conference. Mrs. Grossman's method of teaching is quite different from Mr. Todd's, and Judy doesn't care for it. She has quite the attitude toward Mrs. Grossman's "Attitude Tent" set up in the back of the room and about the fact that Mrs. Grossman rewards correct math answers with candy (Judy's major complaint is that she never gets any sweet treats).

Judy must take home a note to her parents in which Mrs. Grossman explains that Judy needs extra help with math. After much discussion, Mom and Dad decide to hire a math tutor for her. Judy is horrified, in spite of their assurance that being tutored will be an enjoyable experience. She believes her brother Stink, who tells her she'll be subjected to flash cards, bead counting and macaroni gluing. However, things look up when she discovers she will be tutored by a student, Chloe, at her college!

It doesn't take long for Judy to realize that Chloe is extremely cool. Soon, they are playing the Game of Life in the college coffee shop, where Judy is enchanted by Chloe's coffee order ("tall, skinny, nonfat, wet, extra-foam, no-whip latte with a double shot of vanilla") and with her own hot chocolate. Judy enjoys being the banker --- a subtle math lesson. She also learns some college vocabulary words from her new "peep" (friend) and gleans a few hip wardrobe tips.

Chloe, it turns out, is an unending source of purely pleasurable math-related games and projects. Judy is enthusiastic about counting the different colors of VW Beetles in the college parking lot and then graphing them in the appropriate hues.

My daughter read this in 2 days. Unfortunately at $5 ea I won't be able to get a new book every 2 days. I'll have to find a way to download from the library or find some of these in the free Prime membership. Why are they not covered in that I wonder?

Judy Moody Goes to College is a perfect book that can be used to introduce elementary students to the idea of going to college. It is engaging and motivating! I recommend this book for classroom reading, libraries and children's own personal collection.

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. Some of the books make reference to events in earlier books but never to the extent that they need to be read in order. You can pick up any of the books and will have a great read in your hands.

In this book Mr. Todd has gone away to Italy for a teachers' convention. Judy does not get along with the new teacher and soon she is in need of tutoring in Math. So her parents make arrangements for her to get some help at the local college. So Judy Moody goes to College, specifically Cononial College, where she meets her tutor Chloe Canfield or c Squared! The chapters in this volume are:

Who's Who
Math-i-tude
Mom-and Dad-i-tude
A New Attitude
Brat-i-tude
Not-So-Bad-i-tude
Art-i-tude
Cat-i-tude
Flunk-i-tude
Grat-i-tude
Glad-i-tude
Judy Moody's Not-Webster's New World College Dictionary, First Edition

While hanging out at College, Judy develops some new lingo, a new fashion sense and soon she is starting to annoy most of the people in her life with her 'at college' statements. But things might turn around. You will need to read to find out what type of mood Judy Moody ends the story with. This was one of my favorite books so far in these series. It was a great read and I highly recommend it.

I bought this book to my 7 year old daughter and we both loved it! I think this is one of our favorite Judy Moody's, maybe because my daughter could relate a lot with everything that was going on in the book. Totally recommended!

Although Judy Moody is usually entertaining, I think she was little bit annoying in this one. Judy has to go to math tutoring. At first, she is upset thinking she will be sorting jelly beans and making macaroni cats. But her tutor turns out to be a college student who Judy thinks is the coolest ever. So for the remainder of the book we have to listen to Judy use jargon like "peeps" meaning friends and "rents" meaning parents. Her friends think it's cool to go to college and use "cool" phrases, but it grated on my nerves a bit and I was waiting for her parents to tell her to just "chill out" with all the jargon. There is, however, a helpful list of meanings at the end of the book.
