I thought this book was excellent. The protagonist, Junie is portrayed as a kindergardener with attitude. She has a humorous side and a serious side that is would be appealing to children. The author's style is remarkable. The sentences are short and simple to understand. I felt sorry for Junie when she was at "richie nana's" house, because she was afraid to make a mess when doing anything. Plus, she was made to feel as an outsider that wasn't allowed to play as a young child does.
My daughter is 6 and I read her Junie B. Jones books even when she's not around. Junie B. and my daughter are just alike, especially with the "yeah, like only..." I can't wait to own ALL the books! They're great for a rainy, big people's, veg-out day - or when you just need a good laugh.
My grandaughter and I read this together out loud and her grandpa and brother started listening and enjoyed it as much as we did. I am going to print out the rules for "staying over" to give to all my nieces and nephews and their parents...we laughed and laughed and read them over and over. It is a good enforcement for the "grass is always greener" and Olivia looks at this nanna in a new light. Lucille's nanna ended up scaring Olivia when she was so picky about everything in her house. We are ordering several more of the books and have called the library asking them to order them for their readers.
This is the first Junie B. Jones I read (when I was 6).I have now read all of them,but the most I like was this book.This book is funny,because Junie B and her friends always did some funny things.You just cannot imagine.All kids will like it.
As a fifth grade teacher, I used to be upset when my fifth graders brought these books in to read. "Not your reading level!" I would say. I now so ashamed. These are hilarious!!!! My poor granddaughter was reading this book aloud to me; I love that. But I quickly offered to read it to her because if was just so funny! This would be a great read aloud for any classroom to hook students into characters and imagery. Park is wonderful. I love these books.
I bought this book as well as other Junie B stories for my 8 year old and she just gobbles them up. She not only reads the stories but she loves to tell me about them after and is so animated I usually laugh at the fun in the stories myself. Great book(s).
Her name is Junie B. Jones. The B. stands for Beatrice. Except, Junie doesn't like Beatrice. She just likes B. That's all. In this Junie B. Jones story, one of a "million bizillon," Junie and Grace are invited over to Lucille's rich grandmother's house for a sleep over. Junie is beyond excited. She humorously packs her bags and passes the time, just waiting for Lucille's Nana's Cattle Act to come pick her up. Once she is at Lucille's house, hyper-active Junie doesn't know what to do with herself. She wants to have fun, yet obey her parent's rules for spending the night as a guest. At dinner, Junie seems to do everything possible to upset Lucille's Nana. Junie's excuses and cover-ups are simply hilarious. In the end, everything comes to a comic conclusion. A-OK! To me, the Junie B. Jones series is annoyingly adorable. I think that children from ages 6-10 would enjoy the silly adventures that Junie puts her friends, Lucille and "that" Grace through. I loved this book. I recommend it to any one. I guarantee that they will find Junie a witty, lovable character.
