To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First, to make matters worse, I hate Judy Moody. She stinks. But I love Stink. I mean, what did Moody do? If she will save the world it takes TIME and FOCUS. Reading this crap is only ten minutes. Really? Listen to my advice- the sample is excellent but I had to frog flip* five times to stop thi bad muttonchop**. (* from 'Poppy ' by Avi, **from 'Diary Of A Wimpy Kid's Do It Yourself Book' by Jeff Kinney).
It's really a shame that so much of the radical environmental movement goes unchecked. It's even worse that little kids are subtly brainwashed in conventional wisdom concerning the subject with works such as this book. The scientific debate around such taken-for-granted-as-good topics like recycling is nowhere to be found here. (Ever check how much labor and energy are wasted "recycling?") Why spoil good enviro/social reengineering with the facts, right? I prefer for my children to learn science on objective data.
Judy Moody STW is consistent, however. It's got all the politcally correct characterizations you could ever want. Dad's are idiots. Boys are dopey and helpless. Girls are assertive and scientific and never feminine. You get the idea.
For this age group, try finding some unreconstructed old editions of Nancy Drew Mysteries, unless of course you like left wing indoctrination.
