I enjoyed reading Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed because of the point of view of the story. The story is told from the point of view of the main character Junie B. Jones. By having the book from this point of view really engages the reader and reminds older readers what it felt like to be afraid of the small things when we were in kindergarten, such as a monster under the bed. For example, when Junie B. is in her room she thinks to herself, “What if the monster was under there right this very minute? And what if he was looking at my piggy toes? And what if he wanted to eat them?” From this small excerpt the reader can feel really connected to the main character telling the story. The main message of this story is to bring entertainment to young readers by relating real life fears in a humorous, exotic way. Many children are afraid that a monster is hiding in their room, and this book could help bring the message across that children do not need to be afraid. ( )

Barbara Park handles the monsters under our bed really well here by having Junie B looking for a way to stop her monster. In the beginning I was afraid this actually could make our kids afraid of monsters, but near the end they were laughing and joking about it. ( )

Besides students relating to picture day, readers can connect to Junie B. about being afraid of monsters. Sometimes older children are scaring younger children but it can be helpful talking to a parent or adult to overcome a fear. ( )

A funny book about a kindergartner who is afraid that monsters may be under her bed. This a good book for emerging readers, because is gets the young reader involved. This book helps beginning readers know that reading can be fun. I would use this book to teach young readers how dialogue helps involve the reader, especially when the story is something that we can relate to. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0679866973, Paperback)

There's no such thing as monsters. Mother and Daddy even said so. But then why is there monster drool on Junie B.'s pillow? Oh, no! What if Paulie Allen Puffer is right -- what if she really does have a monster under her bed? If Junie B. goes to sleep, the monster might see her feet hanging down. And he might think her piggy toes are yummy little wiener sausages!
