Reviewed in the United States on June 7, 2013
My daughter and I love the Junie B. books, and this one is another classic. Junie B. imagines that, with a little practice, she too can become a hairdresser, with all of the usual goofiness. I have to give the book four stars because of the (intentional) incorrect grammar. I realize that Park writes like this because the kiddo grammar is hilarious -- for adults with a solid foundation in English. As a speech pathologist, however, I know that there are many children who will not understand the irony in the inaccuracies and who need to hear consistently correct English. I have to admit that I correct the grammar when I read the books to my daughter, but I also realize that many children are sophisticated enough to understand the irony.
