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.
