Junie B. has become classic kit lit and a classroom staple for early readers. This impulsive sassy little girl takes me back to my classroom reading corner days where Ramona Quimby roamed free. In this book, Junie B., First Grader: Dumb Bunny, the students in room 1 have been invited to a an Easter Egg hunt at Lucille’s house with a playdate with Lucille and her heated pool as a prize. Junie has decided that she will win that prize, but competition from May and Lucille’s new “boyfriend” are proving to be serious obstacles. Add to that a big footed bunny costume and silly rules like no tackling, and this Easter party proves quite the adventure for this first grader.

The author has done a fantastic job of capturing the voices of these young characters, as any elementary teacher can tell you. She has also laced the book with learning opportunities, social cues, and new vocabulary well hidden in a giggle inducing story. Kids will love it and never know that they are learning something new.

This book, as well the entire series, is an excellent addition to any classroom or homeschool library and will make a fun accessory in any Easter Basket. Though the female protagonist appeal mostly to girls, boys will also enjoy Junie’s adventures, mine did at that age, and it makes a great read-out-loud for storytime groups.

I liked the book Junie B., First Grader Dumb Bunny for three reasons. First, I liked while reading the text I could hear the characters’ tone in my head (ex. Dear first-grade journal, Dumb bunny! Dumb bunny! Dumb bunny! I am not allowed to say dumb bunny)! Second, I liked that the font size was not too small. This made the story easy to read without having to read too much on one page. Finally, the book is filled with humor (ex. Junie B. gets stuck wearing a big dumb bunny costume, while tripping over her big bunny feet). In First Grader Dumb Bunny, Barbara Park does a great job engaging those who are beginning to read chapter books, while introducing them to the funny and unique life of Junie B. The big idea behind this specific text is for children to find humor while reading something they can relate to. ( )

Junie B. Jones is a wonderful book for young children to read. This particular book from the Junie B. Jones series is filled with humor and provides a positive message at the end which is why I enjoyed reading this one. I liked how the author incorporated humor on every page. I found myself laughing from the beginning to the very end. I also liked the message of friendship that was presented in this book. It is great for young readers because at that age they are developing friendships. At first you see Junie B. Jones having many conflicts with one of her classmates, Lucille Nanna, but in the end, they befriend each other once again. Moreover, young readers can relate to this book because the characters are so well-developed. First graders do call each other names, have parties, and like to choose favorites.
