These are horrible books for kids. I started reading them to my kindergartner. She loves them, but she has also started acting just like Junie-horrible, bratty and mouthy. All these books do is give kids ideas of how to misbehave. And her grammar is horrible. I would not let your kids read these, nor would I read any to them.

The book I read was “Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth.” It was a really funny book and some of the words were a little difficult for me at times. The story is basically about a kindergarten girl whose teacher her she can dress up like her favorite career. Some ideas were painters, superheroes, and police officer. Junie claimed she wanted to be all three, and the other kids made fun of her. She was upset and took it out on her family. Monday morning she returns to school and Junie dressed up ...more

Things I Loved: N/A

Things I Hated: Grammar. Every time.
Barbara Park has written a series of books that are about Junie B. Jones. I recently read the Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth. This book is about Junie B. Jones speaking her mind on everything. She reminds me of my sister Hailey. Hailey tends to speak her mind as well. When someone tells her she's wrong, she argues back about how she is right. Junie has a little baby brother named Ollie. She tends to think if he never came about, she would get most of the attention in the house. Junie B. Jo ...more

I read the book "Junie B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth" by Barbara Park. I thought this book was quite adequate yet funny. The plot to the book was average, and the vocabulary was easy to understand. This made the book simple to read.

The plot starts with Junie Jones and her loud mouth. She says she will have the best job when she is older, and everyone believes her. When she gets home she asks her mother for help with which job to pick. When her mother is busy and can't tend to her right away, J

Big Fat Mouth
By Barbara Park

The book starts out with Junie B. Jones at school. She is in classroom nine. Their teacher, Mrs, just told them they are going to have a job day. Mrs. has a cop and a dentist come in that day to explain to them what they do in their job. For Job Day, the students have to dress up like the person they want to be when they grow up. All of the kids know what they want to be when they grow up except Junie B. She wants to be somebody who paints, save

I read "Junie B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth" by Barbara Park. The book tells of how Junie B. Jones keeps getting in trouble because she tells fibs. She tells everyone that when she is older, she is going to have the best job. When job day comes around however, she is just made fun of because she decides she wants to be a janitor. She gets over it, but learns that she just needs to keep her mouth shut!

Junie B. Jones is the main character and is dynamic. Throughout the story she gets in trouble f

This short chapter book describes Junie B. Jones’ experience with “job day” as a kindergartener. Her flights of fancy, thoughtless outbursts and quick wit give insights into the life of a kindergartener wondering what to be when she grows up. After much deliberation, Junie B. settles on copying one of her school heroes, the janitor, and declares to her class that she will also be janitor one day.

This very humorous book explores deeper issues of self-discovery and growing up, therefore I would cl
No, I'm not crazy. My girls and I have started the series. We just finished #3 last night. I may have a broken nose because of it. LITERALLY. No joking. We LOVE Junie B. My girls act just like her at home.

This girl is just too much! (And I'm so glad she's not a student in my class!)
Children can be cruel, and as Junie B. finds out in this book. The students in Room Nine are having Job Day, and Junie B. has no idea what she wants to be. The rest of the class will never let her live it down. She's showing herself not to be as bright or well spoken as some of the other kids in her class and it's starting to become a challenge for her.

While the grammar is horrible and Junie B.'s attitude is really bad, this book is yet another that deals with issues kids her age have to go thro
Junie is a nine year old girl who goes to school on the first day. She meets her teacher whom she calls Mrs. She makes new friends and gets a best friend who is a girl. The teacher tells the class about what they will learn. Junie gets herself in trouble because she talks when the teacher talks. She has a pretty rough day and gets in a lot trouble.

Junie is the main character and she is starting first grade. There is also a teacher Junie calls “Mrs.” Her classmates don’t like her at first because
Who: Junie B Jones, Mrs. (the teacher) students in the class

Where: School, home, Room #9

When: Fall of Junie's 2nd grade school year.

What: It's Junie B. Jones' first day of school in second grade. She had to introduce herself to the class. Junie started to make friends. When she went to recess, the teacher went outside to tell the students something important. The teacher told the students she had a surprise for them. Junie B. Jones likes surprises. The teacher asked what do the students want to
She really has a big Fat Mouth.
Personal Reaction: Junie B. Jones is the perfect transitional books for students. I work at a school now and I always recommend Junie B. because it is easy and so entertaining for the kids but they also get so the kids super involved with reading. This book is one of my favorites because it is very realistic and the topic of talking back and always be discussed.

Reading as a group: I feel as if Junie B. Jones books are better read individually. Students can take their time with it and they are so
This book has been my favorite book in the Junie B. Jones series since I was a little girl and read the books with my mom. These books are written for children that are still not great at reading on their own, but can manage to do so, so the language in them is very easy for children developing their reading skills. The sentences are short as well, and the book is divided into chapters, which I think helps still-begiinnging/transitional readers encourage themselves to read more, because they fee ...more
A beautiful and funny story.

This book is about a young girl named Junie B Jones. The book is comprised of different little stories that Junie B tells. The first story, is about how she comes to school on a saturday, but doesn’t realize its saturday. She wonders where everyone is and makes up different scenarios that could have happened, such as an alien abduction. Finally she runs into a janitor who asks what she's doing there. The story continues to tell about how she and the janitor become friends and he tells her that i ...more

I read this to my son for two reasons.

1) He has development delays and says the most inappropriate things and the most inappropriate times. I was hoping this would help him think a little bit before speaking. It worked to a certain degree, I think. It was funny to him, but I had to explain the moral of the story so we had to stop a couple of times. I think he picked up on some new 'big fat mouth' sayings, so suffice it to say, do not read this to an 'imitator'.

2)I read this as a bonus round fo

It’s Job Day at Junie B.’s Kindergarten class. But what job is Junie B. going to pick? She already told everyone on the bus that she was going to be something fabulous so she better think of something. She decides to be something that her class said only boys could be. I like this book because it sheds a light on other job than just the typical Doctor or lawyer. Students should have all options open to them, and teachers are the one that can show more opportunities.
This could be a good lesson o
This book is one of the easier books I read it still counted though. What I got out of it was that you need to think before you speak so that you don’t say something you don’t mean or if you even think about thinking twice about what you say so I think people really need to watch what they say. I also learned that friends come and go and that you should always be yourself so that people will get a good impression on you. After you make a good impression you have to keep your good personality so ...more

The Junie B. Jones series is quite comical. Junie B. Jones does things her own way and she is lives a very interesting life. Junie B. Jones has an attitude and a care free spirit. She does what she wants and she has a unique way of looking at things. In Junie B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth the book starts out when she is in Kindergartener and she is punished because of her mouth. In her classroom they are having a career day and everyone but Junie knows exactly what they want to be. Junie goes o ...more

I chose Junie B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth for contemporary realistic fiction. In this book Junie B. Jones is told to think of what she wants to be for Job Day at her school. She doesn't know what she wants to be so she decides she wants to be a janitor, a painter and someone who saves the world. A little boy on the bus tells her there is no such job and she yells at him with her loud mouth. Her mouth is always getting her in trouble in school, at home with her new baby brother and with her fr ...more

I absolutely loved reading a Junie B. Jones book. This was the first time I have read one in about 15 years and i noticed a lot more that i did not as a child. I'm sure all of the Junie B books are just as good as this one. This story addresses tons of daily problems and other experiences that children have. The fact that the book is written like a young child wrote it (it is told from Kindergartener Junie B's point of view) makes it extremely relatable and appealing to young children because th ...more

"Junie B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth" by Barbara Park has got to be the funniest out of all the series. I love all the adventures she goes on in all her series. I remember reading and checking out all the series in the library. I would read them so quickly that I would just end up reading the same one over and over again. I loved how I could relate to her. Park's wrote in a way that was like a kindergartener so, little kids could understand better and relate to her. All of the books are written ...more
