Judy Moody and the Bucket List by Megan McDonald (Book Review)

Disclosure of material connection- I received a copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest thoughts. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions stated are 100% my own. 

About the book-

Judy is visiting Grandma Lou one day when she accidentally finds an uber-mysterious list of activities — a Bucket List! Which gives Judy an idea: How rare would it be if she made her own way-official bucket list of all the things she wants to do—before she starts fourth grade? Pretty soon Judy is off and running trying to cross off all her items: learn to do a cartwheel, invent something rad, go to Antarctica (the real one), ride a horse—the list goes on. But what happens if Grandma Lou achieves everything on her list? Does that mean she’ll be ready to . . . kick the bucket?

My thoughts-

This was such a cute book! I have heard a lot about Judy Moody, but have never read any of her books. "Bucket List" caught my eye because I love things like bucket lists and have one of my own. It sounded like it might be a fun book about adventure and it definitely was. Judy Moody has some high hopes for her own bucket list, but ends up learning you can have adventures and accomplish things, even if they are not huge in the grand scheme of things. There are many lessons to be learned in the book and several laughs along the way. Judy Moody and the Bucket List is the perfect book for kids ages 8-12.
