Dec 19, Denise rated it did not like it. I have heard so much about how great these books are so we decided to check them out. I can't think of a single thing from this book that was a "good example" for the kids. None of the people say anything kind or helpful. Many things are described as "stupid, "hate," and "dumb. Do we want to encourage this? The kids and I talked about how it is sometimes fun to read about someone doing things they are not supposed to do and how it can be fun to i I have heard so much about how great these books are so we decided to check them out.
The kids and I talked about how it is sometimes fun to read about someone doing things they are not supposed to do and how it can be fun to imagine it and not actually do it. But even they were not impressed with this book and said that everyone is not nice. In fact my 7 year old said she "dislikes" happily surprised she did not co-opt "hate" this book. I also find it strange when authors chose to have their characters speak incorrectly to be "authentic" but I chose to read the sentences in the correct form so as not to confuse my kids.
I understand that perhaps the humor is meant to be over-the-top and the incorrect words are supposed to be cute.. View all 5 comments.

She is excited for it but she's not so sure about the riding the bus part of the adventure. I know some parents don't like Junie B because she is quite the trouble maker but I found this absolutely hilarious.
Park's characterization of a kindergartener is so spot on its eerie. I'm pretty sure I have a couple of Junie Bs in some of my classes. My only critique, and it's one that I would have to really consider if I want to read this book out loud at some point, is the Junie B is starting school!
My only critique, and it's one that I would have to really consider if I want to read this book out loud at some point, is the liberal use of the word stupid. It's right there in the title. There is no escaping it.
I personally have no problems reading the word, especially as it is being used to describe mainly a bus. However, I get a lot of kiddos that tell me, in their most serious voices, that is it a bad word. Is it? That depends on the usage.
Calling your friend stupid? Not nice. Calling the fact that the cafeteria only serves pizza once a week stupid?
Sounds right to me. It's a tricky line though, especially with the young ones who don't fully understand the different yet. It's a great book for those just starting to read chapter books. Jan 16, Jane rated it did not like it. Has there every been a series more annoying or a character more bratlike than Junie B. I think not. View all 4 comments. Aug 03, Deanna rated it really liked it. In fact she was the one who suggested I write a review of the books.
She said she has many good memories of reading but that these books were the ones that made her laugh the most. She also enjoyed the fact that I was sincerely laughing along with her.
