Junie B. Jones is (almost) a Flower girl is a chapter book about a six-year-old who finds out she isn't the flower girl at her aunt's wedding. With much disappoint she finds out a way to become the flower girl regardless if there is a flower girl already. There are a few illustrations and is in black and white. Most likely drawn with pencil and outline with a pen. Teachers can use this book to teach about jealousy and learning how to cope with it. I enjoy this book a lot because it was short and simple. It was hilarious and I love all Junie B. Jones books! ( )

This book is a chapter book and it is from my all-time favorite series being the Junie B. Jones series. This book talks about Junie and how her aunt is getting married and she wants to be the flower girl. Her aunt unfortunately already had a flower girl picked out. Being a flower girl is a very special event in a little girl’s life and it was hard for Junie B to understand that she was not going to be able to be the flower girl. Junie B is determined though and she invites herself to be in her aunts wedding. Her aunt finally decides to let her be the ‘alternate’ flower girl and that gives Junie B an idea. The idea to steal a couple flower pedals from the real flower girl pops into her head “ ‘cause that would be fair of her. I think!” In the end, Junie B becomes friends with the real flower girl even after the little tussle they had. This book is a good book for kids beginning how to read. The illustrations is pencil drawings and minimal. A teacher could use the lesson of becoming friends with the people you do not like or how in life, you do not always get what you want. ( )

in Junie B Jones is (almost) a Flower Girl, Junie B. strives to make her parents understand that she is a grown-up lady. She laments the end of her first boyfriend-girlfriend relationship and is quite upset when her parents tell her she is too young. All of her friends have boyfriends, so she feels she must have one as well. As she tries to convince her parents that she is a "grown up lady," she finds out that her Aunt Flo will be getting married soon. After sharing the news with her friends, Junie B. decides that she will be the flower girl in her aunts wedding. Unfortunately, Aunt Flo has already chosen a flower girl, but invites June B. to be an alternate. Her mother buys her a beautiful dress, panty hose and shoes and she even gets to sit at the bridesmaid table at the reception. Junie B. uses this opportunity to prove to her parents that she can behave as a grown up lady, however, midway through the reception she realizes that being little really isn't so bad.

Personal Reflection: I love the Junie B. Jones series! I have great memories of sharing these books with my daughter. This is a good reminder to little girls not to grow up too fast in a society that urges kids to mature much too soon.

Extension Ideas:
1. Set up a party and talk about manners and behavior at formal events
2. Talk about the fun things kids can do that adults can't do.
3.. Talk about peer pressure and the need to do something because all of their friends are. ( )

I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a comical read. This book makes me laugh and it is quite easy to understand. Even though the book consist of “made up” words, the reader is still able to comprehend the main idea or message. The plot of this specific book is hilarious because it starts out with Junie B. getting “dumped” by her boyfriend. It is clear that the reader and Junie B’s parents believe that Junie B. is way too young to even have a boyfriend. The purpose of this story is for young learns to understand that sometimes it’s better to be young than all grown up. ( )
