In my opinion, I think the Junie B. Jones series is a good selection for emerging readers. The language is simple yet humorous. Barbara Park did an excellent job developing Junie B. Jones’s character because she has a strong personality. Her character does not change at all through the series. Students will find her comical, entertaining, and fun. Young readers will want to keep reading Junie B. Jones novels because of the interesting story line and plot. I love how the story is told in first person. The reader will always know how Junie B. is feeling because she is always the one to narrate. The dialogue within the book enhances the reading by depicting other characters responses and reactions to Junie B’s behavior. The purpose of this book is to allow students to read a story that is funny and relatable. ( )

SUMMARY: Junie B. Jones is a kindergartener who just can't seem to catch a break. Junie B. Jones can really loud and talks before thinking and it gets her in trouble with her teacher. Then she gets in trouble with the janitor for putting a piece of candy on the ground in her mouth. Then, people from the community come into her classroom to talk about their jobs, such as a cop and dentist, but she didn't know what she wanted to be. She thought of many different jobs and then decided to be a janitor. Everyone makes fun of her but then the janitor came in for show and tell and the kids in the class got to play with his tools.

REVIEW: I think that this would be a good book for students to read on their own time or as a book of choice for a literature circle. I do not think that this would be a good book to use or analyze in the classroom because it does not have any information given to the reader. It is more of an easy read than a book that would fit into the curriculum. I do feel that 4th graders could think that Junie B is funny and could relate to her quirkiness and problems.

In this Junie B. Jones book Junie and her class learn about careers and have a job day at their school. Junie learns about many different jobs and how they are done. She also has to work on keeping quiet and only talking when she is being called on in class. Junie is also adjusting to having a new baby at home and not being the center of her parent's attention.

Junie B. Jones books are loved by children across the country. I like this books and others in the series because they are funny and have story lines that children can relate to. They also have simple plots and the sentence structure and word choice are easy to understand. The thing I do not like about these books is that in trying to be funny the author uses many words and phrases that are grammatically incorrect. While many children enjoy this aspect of her books I feel like it may be confusing to them and similar things could show up in their writing. ( )
