I loved this book for several reasons. First, it had a lot of descriptive language. For example, Junie B. made up a lot of words to describe things. It shows how innocent she is and shows her age. I also loved that the story was told in first person. I allowed readers to see the story through her point of view which added the entertainment aspect of it. The characters and the story line are completely believable. Junie B is humorous and her "problems" are realistic. The overall message of this story is to try new things even if you're scared. Junie B was scared to ride the bus because she thought the bus driver was mean, that the bus smelled, and she wouldn't have anyone to sit with. These are all relatable concepts for children of all ages.

I love Junie B. Jones books. I grew up reading these book and i will definitely read them in my classroom. These are written over a sassy little girls adventures and daily events. This one is a over her bus ride on the stinky smelly bus. She did not want to ride the stinky bus so her eventfully day is explained here. On the way home on the first day of school, Junie didn’t like the kids that were on it because they took her seat and she wanted to sit next to her best friend Sarah. The next day she went to school and when it was time to leave at the end of the day, she ended up staying. Instead of taking the bus home, she decides to hide in a classroom closet. She roams around the school, going through several different rooms, trying out various school supplies and equipment around the school, even equipment in the nurses office. Junie’s mother and teacher find her. Junie’s mother arranges her to sit with a girl from Junie’s class on the next day’s bus ride in order for Junie to be comfortable. ( )

This book is one of the series that tells of a little girl name Junie B. Jones who shows her many adventures. In this book it is her first day of kindergarten and thinks that it is going to be awful especially when she learns she is going to have to ride the bus. But by the end of the book she learns that it isn't that bad especially after you make a friend to keep you company on your adventures. This book is great for an early reader who is wanting to read chapter books. This book also helps students learn that even if something seems like it is going to be scary just to give it a chance because it might be fun and take you on some pretty crazy adventures. ( )

Junie B. Jones books are some of my favorites! This book is the first one of the series and is about Junie B. Jones and her very first day of Kindergarten. She has to ride the school bus and she is not excited about that, she says the bus smells weird and she does not particularly like the other kids on the bus. This book is funny and keeps kids entertained and I feel it is very good for personal connections that the kids can relate to. ( )

This book focuses on a curious young girl, Junie B. Jones, who is starting her first day of kindergarten, and is nervous to ride the bus. She explains how the bus smells awful, like egg salad and smoke, and explains how all the boys and girls on the bus are pushy. Junie does not want to ride the bus due to these issues and that is why she explains all of these excuses. On the way home on the first day of school, Junie didn’t like the kids that were on it because they took her seat and she wanted to sit next to her best friend Sarah. The next day she went to school and when it was time to leave at the end of the day, she ended up staying. Instead of taking the bus home, she decides to hide in a classroom closet. She roams around the school, going through several different rooms, trying out various school supplies and equipment around the school, even equipment in the nurses office. Junie’s mother and teacher find her. Junie’s mother arranges her to sit with a girl from Junie’s class on the next day’s bus ride in order for Junie to be comfortable. ( )
