This book could be used as an interactive read-aloud for grades 1-2 and they could talk about a vacation they had taken with their family. It could be used as an independent reading for grades 3-5 and then they could write a short story about a vacation they had taken. I would also have this book on a shelf on a 6-8 grade room for students to read during their free-time because even though it will be an easy and quick read for most students, it will at least have them reading and it will be a book they enjoy.

I fell in love with this book. The way she spells, her interactions with people, and her overall spunk make this a fun book to read. This would work well as a book study (work on literacy skills) and bring in topics and language from Hawaii. Also a great series for this age group and could be used in a book club for elementary age students. ( )

This book is about Junie B. and her family going on a vacation to Hawaii. They are going to have a great time there or not. It's a fun book. ( )

In my opinion, “Junie B. Jones Aloha-ha-ha” and the Junie B. Jones series is a wonderful series of chapter books for young readers. This book, in particular, is absolutely hilarious. Junie B. Jones is the main character of this story, she is very predictable because we know how she will react in situations and can predict her behavior. Also, if you have followed the series you would know her very well by this point. Junie and her parents are going on a vacation of a lifetime in “Pair-o-dice”. Junie B. is excited for her vacation to Hawaii. The vacation is not what she expected. Her teacher gives her a camera, a journal, and an assignment. The assignment is to take a photo everyday, with captions, and to describe what she did on her vacation. Junie B's journal does not start out well. Junie's last adventure was a guided tour of the rain forest and is awful and boring. At least it’s boring until a bird is attracted to the flowers in her hair and gets stuck in her hair. I think kids can relate to Junie B because it is written in her voice. I think it would be great to discuss not only vacations, but also giving new things a try. This is a realistic fiction chapter book for children in the 2nd to 4th grade. It is no doubt entertaining for a child. Junie B's outrageous behavior is endlessly entertaining, and as an adult reader made me laugh out loud on several occasions. I love how the book is narrated and told by a first grader, and seeing the world through Junie B's eyes is an absolute riot. Humor is definitely the strength in this series! The central message of the story is having an open mind when experiencing new things, and looking on the bright side! ( )
