Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a good book from the Junie B. Jones series. She is invited to a wedding and gets really excited about being the flower girl until she finds out that they've already picked someone else. She gets to be the alternate instead. Ms. Park really does a good job of describing the excitement of a 5 year old during a wedding; wearing a fancy dress, shiny new shoes (that hurt her feet!), the boring wedding ceremony and the fun of the reception. Our girls really enjoyed this story.

I read the book "Junie B. Jones is (Almost) a Flower Girl," by Barbara Park. I thought this was a quite comical book that made me laugh. I think this is one of the better books in the series.

The plot starts out with Junie gets "dumped" by her boyfriend, but her parents tell her she is too young to have a boyfriend. Junie is then told her Aunt Flo is getting married. She goes to school the next day and tells all her friends she will be attending her first wedding. Then her friends tell her how th

I really enjoyed reading “Junie B. Jones is (Almost) a Flower Girl”. It was written by Barbara Park. This story is about a young girl, Junie, who wants to be a flower girl in her Aunt's wedding. Her friends all told her that they got to be a flower girl in a wedding, so Junie wants to, too. Turns out that there is someone else that already holds that position as flower girl in the wedding. Junie is very upset and has to be the extra flower girl instead. When it comes to the day of the wedding, J ...more

Personal Response:
I give this book a three out of five stars, because I think it is one of the better books out of the series. I think that this book is funny since Junie is such a sassy girl. I also can relate to this book since I wanted to be a flower girl for my uncles wedding, but I did not get picked and I was so mad.

Plot:
In the beginning of this book Junie's boyfriend, Ricardo, breaks up with her and she is heartbroken until her mom tells her that her aunt Flo is getting married. Junie is

Junie B. has boyfriend problems, and her parents are, well, unsympathetic. They keep telling her that she needs to be footloose and fancy-free, when she wants to be treated like a grown-up lady. When her family is invited to her Aunt Flo's wedding, Junie B. has a chance to show everyone how a grown-up lady behaves, even if she is stuck being the alternate flower girl.

I read this story with the Kiddo (age 8), who is always amused by Junie B.'s antics and her distinctive voice. My son did well rea

Grandma Debbie dropped off a bag of these books salvaged from the recycling bins. Guess what? They should be recycled!

I cannot believe this is a successful series for kids! The grammar and language is so poor, I physically can't read it.

Examples, lest you think I'm being dramatic:
I runned and I runned. I hided behind the water fountain speedy fast. And me and her went to the Principal's office. Principal looked disappointed at me. And I throwed it in the cart very hard.

i remember these from when i was a little kid. :D my teacher used to read them out loud to my class after recess then we'd all take those reading test you get points and prizes for. (that sort of mindless positive reinforcement must work, because i still LOVE reading.

I love the way this is written. It's a first person book about a six year old. Six year old kids don't have perfect vocab or behavior.

I liked that the focus was on her. She talked like a six year old and behaved like one. Yes, she is self-centered and doesn't pay much attention to other people. But that's really how a lot of kids are. It's not as if they're doing it on purpose a lot of the time. But to children the world revolves around them. That's what I liked about this story is that it focu

When we finished this book, Mary called Emily (who is getting married in July), just to sing her the song from this book:

"Here comes the bride, all dressed and wide, her name is Cylde and she reads the TV guide."

The great thing about Junie B is that it keeps them laughing for a long time. (Even though, as my son points out, the grammar is incorrect.)

Each one of them has been a flower girl before, so they teach her what to do.

It was funny how Junie B. just called Aunt Flo and said 'I'm going to be your flower girl' without even asking and how Bo thought that Junie B. was trying to take the whole basket when she was only trying to take 2 petals and she didn't even get two petals! And I can't believe that they were being so mean to each other and then they make friends at the very end!

So my daughter has made a list of all the books she hasn't read of Junie B and each time we go to the library she brings said list and searches the books. Keep in mind she is eight and she consumes them. When I try to help she states they have to be in order first I have to read her kindergarten books, referring to Junie B. then I can read her first grade books. Sometimes she won't wait for you to finish her books she'll just read them and said we need to go back to library which I don't need mu ...more

Of all the books about Junie B. Jones, this one has to be right up there with the very best.

Barbara Park is absolutely in top comic form in the pages of this story. There were several parts in the book that set me off laughing so hard that tears came from my eyes, and I'd spend minutes at a time just trying to read through those parts; every time I would read the words, I couldn't help laughing so hard that I wasn't even able to continue holding the book open. I'm not exaggerating. Barbara Par

I blame my daughter for this! It's Veterans Day. I have the day off. It is beautiful out and the rest of the family is off at work or school. So why am I inside reading this book? It's Beetle's fault!

My lovely daughter is in a reading spree of late. While she refuses to read a book we started together months ago that I would like to continue, she has been cranking out book after book this weekend. She has re-visited the Junie B. Jones series. The other evening I read a chapter with her. Before s
