Judy Moody, M. D.: The Doctor is In! (Judy Moody Series #5)

Overview by Barnes and Noble:

Reissued in a way-cool paperback design
She took her own temperature. With the fancy thermometer that beeped. It was not normal. It was not 98.6. Judy's temperature was 188.8! Judy's temperature was 00.0! Judy's temperature was beep-beep-beep-beep-beep. She, Judy Moody, had the temperature of an outer-space alien!
Judy Moody has a mood for every occasion, and now, she, Judy Moody, is in a medical mood! It's no secret that Judy wants to be like Elizabeth Blackwell, first woman doctor, when she grows up. So when Class 3T starts to study the Amazing Human Body, Judy can hardly wait to begin her better-than-best-ever third-grade projects: show-and-tell with something way rarer than a scab, a real-live ooey-gooey operation, and a cloning experiment that may create double trouble for Judy and her friends. RARE!

My thoughts:
Judy is a fun character to read about, she is so full of life and strange ideas.  From thinking they can clone the guinea pigs with a dish and some hair, to stealing something from Stink for show and tell and wanting to cut open Toady to find out how he worked she was always getting into something.  I liked that her hero is the first woman doctor too.  It is nice that our children are growing up knowing that there are plenty of male and female doctors now, but to know that someone at some time felt strongly enough to fight to make this possible is important for them to know.
