This is a great book to use with students! I used to read this book as an ELL student and I enjoyed looking through Junie's experiences. This is a great book for students to relate to different situations or events that occur in school or at home. This book portrays different events through Junie's view, which is great to show students that they can also do the same in their own writing. Although this book lacks multiple uses of illustrations, it still incorporates illustrations when it is most needed to create mood. This is a great guided reading book, especially when focusing on the topic of fear or getting over a fear. Teachers can also have class discussions about the different chapters of this book and really analyze the problem that Junie B. Jones is trying to solve. ( )

“Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed” by Barbara Park is a realistic fiction book about a kindergartner who has picture day and while taking their class picture, one of her classmates informs her that she has a monster under her bed. Junie then starts to panic because what he is saying makes sense, when she asks her friend grace she agrees and says she might. From searching to having her to finally putting her scary picture day pictures under the bed Junie B. Jones tries to get rid of the monster. This book had me laughing throughout and I would definitely recommend this to later elementary students. Even though the story is about a kindergartener, the lack of illustrations and the length of the book make it a hard read for younger students. This book can also be used by a teacher to review grammar rules. This would work because the story is told from the perspective of a kindergartener so there are numerous grammatical mistakes. Overall Junie B. Jones is a relatable character who knows how to put a smile on anyone's face. ( )

I cannot say enough how much I love Junie B. I literally laugh out loud while reading every time. When Junie hears about monsters under beds from another classmate, she begins to be afraid to go to sleep a night. Of course, everything with Junie is exaggerated and that makes it all the better. However, there is always an underlying lesson. I would recommend this book for ages six and above. I still enjoy reading Junie B. books, and I am an adult. I always have a happy feeling after finishing on these books. ( )

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!
