Amazon.com Review

Everybody's favorite sass-mouth first grader comes back for her 23rd installment in this popular series . This time around, Junie B. fends off a stomach virus and earns a starring role in the Parent's Night play. The action starts with a bang--or rather, a "SPLAT-O!"--as one of Junie B's classmates falls victim to a stomach virus right there in class: "It was the disgustingest thing I ever saw. Also, the odor was not delightful." But only after everyone improvises their own virus defenses ("We held our noses tight with our fingers. And we didn't breathe for the whole rest of the morning") does the real excitement in Room One begin. Poor, put-upon Mr. Scary has planned a special event for Parent's Night--a play about Christopher Columbus. Junie B. lands a plum role ("I want to be the Pinta! Cause the Pinta was the fastest ship! And the fastest ship is the winner ship. And the winner ship is the star!"), but as with all Junie endeavors, expect a bumpy voyage.

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

From School Library Journal

Grade 1-3–In another zany appearance, feisty Junie B. wins a starring role as the Pinta, the "fastest" of Columbus's ships, in a play to be presented on Parents' Night. Amid typical kid-type disasters (a flu virus, arguments over staging, a frazzled teacher), the students in Room One have a dramatic–and surprising–opening night. Like the other beginning chapter books in this series, Junie B. tells her story in simple, realistic language, including grammatical and spelling errors. Illustrations add humorous details. The interactions of the characters are consistently interesting, and the plot moves quickly. Readers will relate instantly to the trials and tribulations of this first grader, and her approach to conflict resolution and her unrefined social skills make good springboards for classroom discussion. This protagonist often offers examples of how not to handle a situation, but she is always endearing and wonderfully funny.–Corrina Austin, Locke's Public School, St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada

I have read the reviews of this book below, and am astonished at the poor reviews.

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.

Barbara Park's Junie B. Jones books have been well loved by children for years. Her new series has Junie B. in first grade. Now fifth in her series is Junie B., First Grader One-Man Band.
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.

As a teacher, my 2-3rd graders always enjoyed the funny antics of these chapter books. They are humorous and simple adventures of a not-so perfect girl in different adventures they can relate to. They remind me a little of Amelia Bedelia. Kids get hooked on the series.

I am a 47 year old man with a 6 year old daughter. I must confess that I read Junie B Jones to her as much for my own enjoyment as for hers. She loves the books and the character, but a good bit of the humor goes over her head. Like Junie B, she is in the first grade, so what seems so funny to a reader a little older just seems like the way things are to her. But we enjoy the books together.

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.

You can not get any better than Junie B. My grandchildern and I love this book. She has such heart about any of her escapeds. In the, One Man Band, she stumps her toe and can not play in the big class kick ball match. The grown ups in her world led her to play the cymbals along with her classmate,Sheldon the leader of the one man band. The only thing is on the grand day Sheldon has stage fright and leaves Junie B. to carry on. She turns the lemons into lemonaid and carries the day.

A Kid's Review on June 1, 2004
Format: Hardcover
I'm 10, and I love Junie B. Jones. She's really goofy. I liked this story because it shows kids how easy it is to become sick. Junie B. isn't as funny in 1st grade, but I still LOVE her. The Junie B., First Grader stories seem to be different. They have a bigger problem or plot, unlike in kindergarten. This one has a lesson to it. And it shows that even though things can be bad, but then get better, problems and "shipwrecks" can happen. Then, you gotta think fast to help fix them, or disaster can strike. What was confusing about the book was that it just ended. Just ended. It never said what the class thought about Junie B.'s "I'm Sorry" note. I don't know if they forgave her or not. I wish it did. It would make it longer. Plus, I got a bit annoyed at her when she wanted to be the STAR. Being the star doesn't mean you'll be famous or the center of attention. That's what I hate about Junie B. Overall, it's a recomended book.

Great series! Daughter loves the books and so do I. I've read some reviews by parents appalled with the poor grammar. REALLY?! Junie B is a first grader. I'm pretty sure if you're doing your job right as a parent, your child will grow up to speak and spell correctly. Lighten up! It's just a book! And a fun one at that!
