Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 2–Readers will happily board the plane with precocious Junie B. as she sets off for Hawaii with her parents. Her school assignment is to complete a photo journal documenting her vacation, but from the start its clear that her adventures are really misadventures. Her first photo captures two grouchpots, one in the seat in front of Junie B., and the other behind. Clearly, neither passenger is pleased with the girls seat kicking, endless chatter, or imaginative games with stuffed elephant Philip Johnny Bob and Barbie doll Delores. In the hotel gift shop, Junie insists on purchasing a parrot swim ring that proves much too small and gets stuck on her body for the entire trip. Later episodes include an unfortunate encounter with eels and jellyfish while snorkeling, and a bird that nests in Junie B.s hair when she adorns herself with exotic flowers. Clever language and outrageous antics make this irrepressible youngster a standout character. Brunkuss delightful black-and-white illustrations are a delight.–Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT

My whole family loves Junie B Jones! We have all the books on tape that have been released so far and we listen to them all the time! My two daughters (8 & 11 years of age) read the newest Junie B. Jones and gave it 5 stars! I've heard some parents complain that Junie B. can be kind of a brat, but I think she's the Ramona of this generation! As a parent, I love, love, love Junie B. Jones! We all have an inner problem child and I think it's great to see how Junie B. learns from the challenges that she faces! Keep 'em coming Barbara Park!

It's obvious that Junie B. is a spunky six-year-old first grader (in this book in the series). That rambunctiousness is exhibited by author Park in ways that are questionable to some adults who want books for this (or any) age to be uplifting, an example of good behavior (or at least have consequences or teaches a lesson otherwise), impart wholesomeness, morality and otherwise greatly entertain.

Parker seems to reinforce--with few corrections--non-standard English (yes, I know, Junie B. is just out of kindergarten, but still...). This fanciful pseudo-autobiography/journal is not a great way to instill good language development via reading (or listening, if a read-aloud).

Junie B. is exasperating, delightful, rude, charming, energetic, has temper tantrums, is easily bored, and is not fond of "old" people at all--this latter will turn off some older people. Some reviewers claim Junie's behavior is typical or normal, but is it acceptable and should it more-or-less be lauded as it indirectly is in this volume.

I first learned of the Junie B. series when a fourth grade special education student enthusiastically shared that these (second grade reading level) books were her favorite reads. Thus, I read this volume. I was familiar with the author via "Skinny Bones," a delightful and humorous short book about the bullying of a physically wimpy kid and how he dealt with his situation.

I guess I would call this a "cute" read. This particular book in the series does (sort of) have a beginning, middle and end--unlike the "Wimpy Kid" series.

My daughter has loved these books since first grade. They are an easy quick read and she can polish them off in one sitting. Of course Junie is a precocious child and makes lots of bad decisions. Some of the wording used is not allowed in our house and my daughter tells me all about how Junie makes lots of bad decisions. We discuss that Junie is a great example of what not to do. She enjoys the humor and Junie is a wonderful way of hooking a young reader in.

A Kid's Review on May 27, 2006
Format: Hardcover
I hope that everyone in the whole world reads this book, because I did and I couldn't stop talking about it. I acted like it was the only book anyone could read on this whole planet. It was very funny, but I do not recommend this book for anyone who does not have a sense of humor. In this book, Junie B is going on vacation to Hawaii. Everyone thinks she is so lucky to go, except for Lucille, who has been there a thousand times. She is asked to take pictures. Will her pictures turn out really good, or will they be horrible? To find out the answers to these questions and more, read Junie B. First Grader, Aloha-ha-ha!

The KIDS LOVE JBJ. If you have kids between the ages of 4-11 and you can read well. These books are awesome!!! I find myself cracking up at these well written stories about a rambunctious young girl exploring life and learning, or having a misguided understanding about what grownups say, and what they say actually means. I mean side splitting, and the kiddos do the same thing, it is a whole family event before bed each night.

I bought this book for my daughter on a whim. It was sitting on top of a stack of clothes at Target in the girls section and I decided to buy it. My daughter was thrilled since I guess this is a big hit in her classroom and her teacher reads them some of the books and they even just recently saw a play. I read the book to her and found it very enjoyable. It was very funny and pleasant to read. Even though I give this 5 stars, some people may find some of the grammar unacceptable, but you must realize that some of the parts of all of these books are journal entries written by a 1st grader which as all of us know are not the greatest in terms of writing skills, but we know that they are trying their best to write correctly. I do recommend these books more for a parent reading to a child or a child reading who knows better than to think that this is the correct way to write. My first grade daughter knows that when I read what Junie B. writes that it is not the correct way to speak and she finds it fun to tell me the right way. Her teacher even has the children correct Junie B. grammar when she is reading. Over all, the books that I have read from this series are great and am happy when my daughter brings them home from her school library since I know I am for an evening of enjoyable reading.

Another cute read!! My daughter doesn't read on her own yet, so I read these out loud to her, and we all get a laugh from Junie B. Good first readers, as well!! I see that we will probably be recycling these, as her reading level increases, and she can read the set on her own!! She is currently 4!
