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
In the beginning of the book Junie B. Jones gets dumped by her boyfriend Ricardo. Junie thinks this is the worst thing in the world. When she goes home and tells her mom, her mom says she is too young to have a boyfriend. Junie thinks she is a mature adult so throughout the book she talks about how the things she does are adult like. Junie's mom tells her that sometimes is better to be single. As Junie takes her nightly bath her mom tells her about her Aunt Flo's wedding. The next day when Junie ...more

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

Barbara Park's Junie B. Jones is (almost) a Flower Girl is a funny and hilarious edition to the rest of the Junie B. Jones series. In this book, Junie B. find out her Aunt Flo is getting married.

She even tells her friends she is going to be the flower girl, before talking to her aunt. After school, Junie B. decides to take it upon herself to call her Aunt Flo and inform ...more

Later she is told she will be in a wedding as a flower girl. Her friends show her the ropes on how to be a flower girl. Junie calls her aunt and tells her she wants to be the ...more
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.)

Junie B. Jones finds out that her aunt is getting married, and tells her friends, Lucille and Grace, at school. Her friends get so excited and ask if she’s going to be the flower girl. Each one of them has been a flower girl before, so they teach her what to do. As soon as Junie B. gets home from school, she calls her aunt, against her grandpa’s instruction, and tells her that she’s going to be the flower girl! Unfortunately, her aunt has already given that job to another girl. Junie B. is so up ...more
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!

Junie B. Jones is a quirky elementary students always getting into accidental mischief. This is one cute story from the series that illustrates the changes of young girls and the experience of being in a wedding!
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sadie Thorner
I liked this book because it was funny and about weddings.
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

This book is very cute and Junie B. becomes a flower girl almost but not quite. Junie's friends try to teach her how to be a flower girl and how not to trip on her dress and how to throw flower petals. Junie learns from her Aunt Flo that she can be a substitute flower girl in her wedding. Junie makes a new friend at the wedding and her name's Bo. This book is great for young children to read.

This is probably my favorite in this series. Who knows what my daughter thinks of it. I now get her to read it to me and I roll around and laugh. Footloose and fancy free is the way to be. Oops. That may need a spoiler alert.

What I think about this book JUNIE b. JONES IS ALMOST A FLOWER GIRL is that its a good bood book because it has a good lesson. The lesson is dont fight for your problems.

Then the uncle saw them worked their probles with no fighting and the uncle felt proud th ...more

This was the first book I ever read to the girl from this author (Barbara Park) and I was furious that my girls liked these books! Junie B. just right down needed a good ol' butt bust'n for all the nasty little things she done and said. However, my youngest assured me that not all the books were this way. It took a lot of pursuading to read another book from this author because I was really close to banning these books from my kids eyes. I don't tolerate my kids being disrespectful to anyone and ...more

This book is great for reluctant readers since it's an easy reader and it's very funny. This book goes to show that children have an imagination of their own. Aunt Flo hasn't even asked Junie B. to be her flower girl, but Junie is already telling everyone and making plans.
