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 automatically assumes that because she is Aunt Flo's favorite niece that she will automatically get to be the flower girl. 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

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. XD!) i adored theses as a child, but i don't remember Junie B being quite this big of a jerk. i mean really, the kid's an ass. she's rude to grown ups and mean spirited to other children. everytime she doesn't get her way she throw ...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.)

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!

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!

Though this book does not have a lot to do with Junie B. in the classroom, it does teach her an important life lesson on sharing and friendship that students can use in and out of class. This tells of how Junie B. so badly wants to be the flower girl for a wedding but the flower girl had already been chosen, and she was not it. She ended up trying to be the flower girl at the actual wedding by stepping in and trying to throw some petals, but that did not work out very well at all. At the end of ...more

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

I like junie b. Jones is almost a flower girl because she is very funny at that book and sometimes she makes me laugh when she says something very funny. When I read this book at the very first chapter she said that her boyfriend was Ricardo and instead of playing with her he played with the new girl and she was very angry at him and she went to tell him why was he playing with the new girl and that made me laugh a little and because she made a mad face.

This book is very cute and Junie B. becomes a flower girl almost but not quite.
