Summer is here!! No more school! The kids will be home all day....... gulp. I just came back from a two-day trip, and already all the carefully prepared workbooks and find-a-word sheets and origami papers have been decimated! It's time to hit the library for some serious summer reading! Fortunately there are lots of good book series kids and work through this summer. One of my daughter's favorite series is Judy Moody, that crazy little girl who forges her way through life in her own unique way. The series has lots of books so your kids can read all summer long.
To make things even more fun, the new Judy Moody movie is now in theaters! It began running over the weekend, so countless Judy Moody fans can follow Judy's adventures on the big screen.
About the movie
When her best-laid plans for a summer full of fun go comically awry, an imaginative young girl creates her own vacation adventures in Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer. Based on the beloved, bestselling book series by Megan McDonald, Judy Moody and the NOT Bummer Summer is an irresistible and delightfully funny treat for adventure-loving kids and adults.
This summer, third grader Judy Moody is planning the most super-duper, double-rare summer vacation ever with best friends Rocky and Amy. Except that it turns out Rocky is going to circus camp to learn to tame lions, and Amy is headed off to Borneo with her mom to save a lost tribe while Judy stays home with her pesky little brother Stink and second-best friend Frank Pearl. Just when she thinks things are as rotten as they can be, her parents announce that they will be going to California and Judy will have to stay behind with her Aunt Opal, who she’s never even met! It looks like Judy’s best summer ever has just become her way worst summer ever.
But feisty, fearless and ever-funny Judy Moody never gives up! With help from some unexpected sources, she’s headed for a summer full of surprises in this charming and spirited family film. Get ready, get set, get MOODY!
