These books are good to introduce students into chapter books. The author adds a lot of humor to Junie's character. This book would be good for learning about problem and solution pus setting or theme. ( )

Genre: realistic fiction. Though Junie B Jones is a fictional character, her thoughts, actions and ideas appear to be believable of a young child. The style of writing is engaging and dialogue is believable.
Style: The style was effective in developing the story and characterization because of its use of language. The language used by the children in the book was believable along with the language and actions of the adults. ( )

Graduation Girl is the story of Junie B. graduating from Kindergarten. Junie B. finds herself in another dilemma when she ruins her graduation gown by spilling grape juice on it. She tried to remedy the situation, only to cause further problems. However, in the end, her classmates come to the rescue.
This story appeals to younger children, and could be used to discuss cause and effect situations in reading, as well as making connections. ( )

This is a great transition book for children. It has chapters which is great for children who are moving from picture books to novels. This book is about Junie B. Jones graduating. Graduation often means that change is coming from some where and things are not going to be the same. This book is a great one to use with patients who are dealing with change in some way and who would resonate with this witty and quirky character. ( )

Then—uh-oh!—an accident happens! Can Junie B. find a way to fix things? Or will graduation be a spotty dotty disaster?

Book description
Junie B. Jones has just turned six and is looking forward to her kindergarten graduation, but when grape juice stains the white gown she couldn't resist trying on, she is afraid graduation is ruined.After celebrating her sixth birthday, Junie B.’s mom tucks her in and reminds her she is graduating from kindergarten on Friday. Her mom reassures her this is an exciting event and she is ready to go to first grade the following year. The week at school is filled with graduation preparation, including a poem writing activity that ends with Junie B. in the principal’s office. . But Junie B., being Junie B., is sure that just one peek on the way home won't soil her gown. And then she must show off to her stuffed animals with a lot of whirling and skipping, which of course makes her thirsty. But guess what? "Grape juice can go wrong."
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375802924, Paperback)

Junie B. Jones and all of Room 9 are getting ready to graduate from kindergarten! Their teacher--known to our heroine as "Mrs."--distributes their fresh white caps and gowns ("Cats and gowns, cats and gowns!" Junie hollers), and makes her students promise to keep them in their boxes until the big day. But Junie B., being Junie B., is sure that just one peek on the way home won't soil her gown. And then she must show off to her stuffed animals with a lot of whirling and skipping, which of course makes her thirsty. But guess what? "Grape juice can go wrong."

The 17th title in Barbara Park's popular Junie B. Jones beginning chapter book series is filled with more messy antics from the irrepressible 6-year-old with the rather unusual speaking style. She may be trouble, but Junie B. Jones has definite six-appeal. Don't miss any of the titles in this lively series, from Junie B. Jones Has a Peep in Her Pocket to Junie B. Jones and Some Sneaky Peeky Spying to Junie B. Jones Is Captain Field Day. Denise Brunkus's witty drawings deftly capture the tragicomedies of kindergarten life. Although the cute-precocious style may eventually grate on grownups' nerves, kids won't tire of Junie B.'s everyday adventures. (Ages 5 to 8) --Emilie Coulter
