Product Details

Praise

Fans get a history lesson delivered with humor, as Judy petitions for her own freedoms — such as more allowance.
—Publishers Weekly

Fans can cheer ‘Huzzah! Huzzah!’ for Judy as she connects history with her own story.
—San Francisco Chronicle

Judy’s petitioning for parental concessions will spark recognition in many readers, and in both McDonald’s charismatic narrative and Reynolds’ line drawings, the characterization of a dauntless, endearingly notional third-grader is as spot-on as ever.
—Booklist

INDEPENDENCE is good for curricular ties to social studies units, and McDonald does a great job of transforming the concepts into familiar concerns. Read aloud or alone, this delightful book will inspire children to write their own declarations of independence.
—School Library Journal

Illustrator Peter H. Reynolds portrays Judy's spunk, and McDonald tells a story that not only offers a fun, fictional heroine, but also admirably introduces a real female heroine from the time of the American Revolution.
—Connecticut Family
