Junie B. Jones is precocious! She thinks she is the very best spier in the world. She spies on everybody and everything. When she starts spying on her teacher, Mrs., she starts a whole whirlwind of trouble. This story ends up with mother explaining privacy to Junie B.
I absolutely love Junie B. Jones. I read her books regularly to the extended day program I work with at school. It is an easy read, and kids love how naughty Junie B. is, in every situation. This book made me laugh until my stomach hurt, because it resonates personally with me. I have a collection going with Junie B.
In the classroom, I find children of all ages tend to enjoy Junie B. We read it in social skills class. There are books for each holiday and situations such as starting school. I think I'd like to read this book to a kindergarten class at the beginning of the year.

Junie B. Jones learns about spying and she starts to spy on everyone she knows. On her mom, dad and teacher. This spying business is getting her into a lot of trouble.

This story was about a little girl named Junie B. who loves to spy on people. But her mother told her that she cannot spy anymore, because it gets her into trouble. The big idea in this story is children listening to their parents and not keeping secrets because they will get them into trouble. I really liked this book for two reason. The first reason was because of the language used throughout the story. Junie B. Jones is a kindergartner student, and children this age do not always speak grammatically correct. Throughout the story, the author used the grammar of a kindergartner, and I feel like it made me as the reader connect with the story more because I could understand from her viewpoint as a child. For example, Junie B. did not know how to correctly pronounce some words, so she would say them how she heard them. In the story, the teacher was in the grocery store and picked up some zucchini, but Junie B. pronounced it as “Sue Keeny”, and I thought this was pretty funny. The second reason I liked this book was because it included some illustrations, even though it is a chapter book. At one point when her teacher was getting upset with her because she would not have a seat, the illustration on that page showed the teacher’s face, and expressed her emotions as she pointed Junie B. to be quiet and have a seat. Including illustrations helps the reader visualize the story as they read. ( )

Junie B. Jones books are good transitional books. There are not too many words on the pages and the books are in general really fun books. They have been popular since I was in school. probably second grade and up.

As I was reading the book, “Junie B. Jones and Some Sneaky Peeky Spying”, in many ways, Junie B. reminded me of myself when I was younger. I absolutely loved the plot of this particular Junie B. Jones book. Junie B. is always curious as to what other people are doing and why they are doing it. She is blunt and says whatever she is thinking at that very moment. When Grace, her friend, states that she is good at spying Junie B. replies, “Yeah, only too bad Grace but you can’t be as good as me ‘cause I said it first.” As the book continues, Junie B. tries to be as sneaky as she can when she spies on her mother and even her teacher! I also enjoyed the illustrations in this chapter book. The pictures were drawn in pen to correlate with the text on each page. The pictures really expressed Junie B.’s emotions, especially when she was mad. When she was mad, her face was all scrunched up with her eyebrows pointed down and her arms crossed. This is how the reader knows she is very angry. The main idea of this book is honesty and privacy are two things that should be valued. ( )
