From School Library Journal
Grade 1-4-In her fourth "First Grader" book, Junie B. grapples with the ethical issue of cheating and learns how to work collaboratively. She gets caught after she copies a homework assignment. Later, she and another student confess to cheating on a spelling test. Between these two episodes, Junie B. and three classmates have a great experience writing a cinquain poem on friendship. The story wraps up nicely with the protagonist getting support from her parents and a cinquain composed by her teacher, commending her on her honesty. This beginning chapter book is written in first-person narrative with occasional journal entries. Dollops of humor keep the plot from being heavy-handed. The adults and children are believably portrayed, and the comical drawings match the tone of the story.

Gr. 1-2. No one wants to be a cheater pants, a "nasty, rotten ratty pants," especially not first-grader Junie B. Jones. However, in the latest addition to Park's popular early chapter-book series, Junie B. is indeed guilty as charged. One day when she neglects to do her homework, she leans over to copy prissy, perfect, punctual May's paper. After being busted in an embarrassing fashion, Junie B. laments in her journal, "I wish I could disappear into thin hair." Fortunately, with the help of her teacher, Mr. Scary, she learns her lesson: she wasn't "borrowing" May's homework, she was, in fact, cheating. Or was she? Park creates a wonderful classroom of distinct personalities, reflecting the best and most irksome parts of being a kid with equal aplomb. Junie B. is quite entertaining--if you can get used to the deliberately odd constructions such as "I did a gasp at that thing." Brunkus' comical, distinctly Eloise-like pencil illustrations suit the precocious Junie B. to a T. Karin Snelson

The story is simple and well written. The vocabulary is great for an early reader.
I have to admit I am not fond of Junie's tart little sayings at times. I do not allow my kids to use words like "stupid" which are thrown around liberally in the book. I have made clear to my kids they can read Junie B, but if I ever hear Junie B-ish words coming from their mouths, Junie B will find herself at the half price bookstore on the corner.
