I ordered these to read with my 6 yr old daughter. I thought I remembered Junie B. Jones being cute and funny. I was wrong. I clearly forgot that she is a brat with no discipline. I don't like my kids to say things like: stupid, dumb, etc and these are Junie B's favorite words. She yells at adults, sasses her teacher and parents, and says mean things to friends. Her maturity level is equal to what my kids were at around 2 1/2. We are reading the books and using them as a learning tool of how NOT to behave and my kids give examples of what they could/should do instead. I would not allow my children to play with Junie B. if she were real!
