Our family loves the Junie B. Jones books. So when this newest one came out, we bought it right away. I think this is the best Junie B. book so far. It teaches about choices that children make and what is really important. The ending is great! My 6 year old and 4 year old loved it!

This is what my 8 year old daughter, Emily, says about this book. "Great job. I have a way to prove that I love your series of Junie B. books. I have every single book in the whole entire series so far. I even have Junie B. First Grader Aloha-ha-ha.I've never had a better book than this one!"

Junie B., First Grader: Jingle Bells, Batman Smells! (P.S. So Does May) is the absolutely newest book in the Junie B. Jones series and it's full of holiday cheer.

It's the holiday / Christmas season for Junie B. and her friends and classmates. Her class has been chosen to wear jingle-bell hats and perform carols. Only here's the thing --- May's spying and peeping and tattle-taling threatens to ruin it all for Junie B. Jones, or as May calls her, just Junie Jones. Things get even "worser" for Junie B. when she's chosen to be May's Secret Santa. Junie B. has a plan for a gift that will really spite May, but as she sees May's joy at the holiday season, she begins to wonder about her plan.

This is a great book that shows the true spirit of the season. Readers will feel what Junie B. feels as the events unfold. and the ending is very satisfying.

The only thing I miss about the newer books is the letter from Barbara Park at the end. This was always a nice touch and it feels like a small something is missing for it not to be there.

My daughter is in first grade, reading at second grade level. Junie B Jones are her go to books, she flies through them. I find her reading one just about every night. Yes, Junie is a little mischievous, but first graders occasionally are, and it gives her something to chuckle about.

We love the Junie B. Jones series. She is such a fun character. While I don't always love her language or attitude, we do have a good laugh every time I read it with my daughter. It's fun to hear he laugh out loud to a good book.

I got several of these books for my grandson. He had been reading Junie B. Jones books in school and he wanted some for his birthday, which, of course, I got for him. Great little book for new readers.
