The Word Collector
The Word Collector - Peter H. Reynolds

The Word Collector is one of my favorite books! Some people collect stamps and baseball cards but not Jerome, he collects WORDS! In my opinion that is cool! This book helps students understand that all words big and small have meaning and impact. A great activity would be a word wall or bulletin board of kindness, this can be done inside the classroom or outside in the hallway. The students are responsible for coming up with the most amazing words they can think of. Also, I would have students draw names and write three to four kind and encouraging words that describe the person they received. This is a great way to create a community in the classroom. I truly do love this book and I can not wait to use it in the classroom!

Judy Moody Saves The World, Megan McDonald
Judy Moody Saves The World! - Megan McDonald,Peter H. Reynolds

This middle school age book was fun. I received it for free and voluntarily chose to review it. While it was fun with a lot of action, the characters lacked any real depth. I would have liked to see a little more. While it was centered on recycling and saving the world, I would have liked to have answers as to why. I would hope that this would make some of our teenagers think about it more. Because it was a little fun and a good subject matter, I've given this a 4* rating and I'll be sharing this with my grandchildren.

Judy Moody #1 by Megan McDonald, Peter H. Reynolds (Illustrator)

Why yes, I am an adult who reads children books.

I will be 80 and still reading picture books. It doesn't matter that books like this are targeted toward preteens or teenagers. I think it is sad if we get to a point in our life where we say "Well I'm XX now, can no longer enjoy that thing I used to enjoy..." It's fine if we naturally outgrow things of course, but don't force yourself to do so if you don't want to.

Judy Moody is a series I could have read when I was around the "right" age, not a preteen, but a teenager. I never read it because of pressure of trying to read things for my age or things that were above my reading level.

I was Judy's age once. It is fun to read about her silly adventures and put myself in her shoes. I never want to get to the point where I can't relate to younger (or older) characters.

Judy and her family are great. Kids of all ages, and kids at heart should get to know them.

*I read this twice. Once from the library and once provided by Netgally*
