The usual classroom crew is back, including Lennie, Herbert, and Jose, and Junie doesn't disappoint with her unintentionally hilarious asides ("Attendance is the school word for who isn't here") and trademark wisdom ("Glitter can turn your whole day around"). (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul Hughes

Junie B. Jones is supposed to have poor grammar, as many, many 1st graders do. The great thing is, as a school teacher, I get to hear my students correcting her grammar. Children learn by doing- Junie B. makes them hear her mistakes and correct them and laugh at how silly some of th mistakes are.
Also, of course she wants to be the center of attention, as do 99.98% of the rest of the 6-year-olds in the world. That is yet another thing that makes these books so appealing to children- especially children who are between 5 & 9.
The most important part of learning to read is actual reading. It doesn't matter what you read- just read. My students love to read Junie B., so what kind of teacher would I be if I told them not to read something they like, but rather read something they don't like. How many would still want to read? Few.
If your child loves Junie B., don't make the mistake of restricting his or her reading because of grammar or Junie's desire to be the center of attention. Children become fluent and effective readers by reading as much as possible. Encourage your child to read what he or she loves.
We find Junie B. back in room one with the teacher Mr. Scary. The class has a kick ball tournament and she dreams of becoming the star player until she injures her piggie toe during practice.
She is devastated but her parents teach her that life has disappointments and she can turn lemons into lemonaid.
I give the book a four star rating. My daughters and I enjoyed it. Barbara Park's characters are realistic and the stories are an easy read and a lot of fun.
that's what makes the book funny.I have all the Junie B. Jones books and love them all. Great for children who are just learning to read!
Junie B.'s first grade class is putting on a play for parent's night. Junie B. is excited. It is October, so Columbus Day is the theme. She enjoys her part. And she enjoys watching others do their part.
Whoever finds the most facts about Columbus Day gets to pick their part first. Junie B. is determined to find lots of facts... so that she can pick her part.
Junie B. is so spunky, vital, energetic, out-going, and crazy. I can just imagine what she will be like when she gets older . . .
The best part of Shipwrecked is when the school play actually takes place towards the end of the book. Hard to keep reading sometimes because my daughter and I were both laughing so hard.
