I had mixed feelings about reading this book. I liked the book because I loved how the author wrote in first person, this to me makes it easier for children readers to understand and interact with what Junie B. is saying. Since the book is written from Junie B's point of view that language used is the language that an average kindergartener would use so there are a lot of grammatical and spelling errors. This could be a little confusing because in the classroom teachers are trying to teach students not to spell things incorrectly or use proper english, and this book emphasizes a lot on that type of language. I really liked the book because of how some of the grammatical errors or language was funny and I laughed when I was reading. Throughout the book there was some pictures but I personally thought that they were distracting. They were distracting because I was tempted to just look at the picture and not read the page because there was only so many pictures. Also some of the pictures did not match what was being written until the page after the page that the picture was on. The picture placement was constructed kind of confusingly. Junie B. Jones as a character was very believable and also very relatable. When I read her books I feel like I am living her days with her. When I was younger I felt like I had most of the same problems that she had as well. The big idea of this book was to teach readers that we shouldn't change the way we truly are just so that someone will like us. We had to find ourself and if someone doesn't like us for who we are then they don't have to be friends with us if they don't want to be.

Junie B Jones is as irrepressible as ever. (By the way, the B is for Beatrice, but she doesn't like Beatrice...she just likes B!) Kindergartner Junie B is best friends with Lucille, who wears frilly dresses and socks, and Grace, who rides the same bus, has pink sneakers and is the fastest runner. One day, Grace and Junie B arrive at school ready to play "horsies," only to find that Lucille is not there yet. Soon, however, they spot Lucille, along with a boy. Junie B and Grace scare the boy away, much to Lucille's chagrin. The boy turns out to be a new boy in Kindergarten, and all three friends think he is handsome. Hilarity ensues as all three girls start to compete in their own way for his attention.

I have read many Junie B books and enjoy them. They are written from a Kindergartner's perspective, using grammar that a Kindergartner would use. Junie B is a fun child to read about as she is always into something and is seemingly unstoppable. I would not want to be her parent! I think young children love the fact that Junie B probably gets away with (or perhaps doesn't get away with) things that they might like to do but perhaps know that they should not.

I don't think this is the best Junie B that I have ever read, but on the other hand, it wasn't the worst either. In the end, Junie B learns what it takes to make a new friend - that she should just be herself. ( )

In this story of Junie B. Jones there is a new boy in kindergarten named Warren, the girls all call him handsome warren because they all have a crush. Junie B. Jones does everything she can to get Warren to like her but one day she embarrasses herself by laughing to much and rolling around all over the ground. He then thinks she is crazy. All three best friends compete to have handsome warren, in the end telling jokes brings warren and junie b. to a great part in their friendship and all is well. This story is great to teach a lesson on jealous, fairness, and being yourself and not someone else in order for someone to like you. It also is a good lesson to teach children that they do not need a boyfriend or girlfriend, they can just have really great friends. ( )
