In my view, this is one of the best books of the series up to this point. Sometimes the Junie B. Jones stories are just very cleverly written and unparalleled in terms of humor quotient, but Junie B. Jones Is a Graduation Girl adds an extra dimension of emotional depth to the narrative, really showing us the qualities about Junie B. that cause us to love her so much. She's more than just a mouthy kindergartner with an uncanny penchant for always putting herself in the middle of hilarious misadv ...more

I read Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl. Junie is graduating kindergarten and she is very excited but scared at the same time. All the students have caps and gowns to wear for graduation. They're to take them home and not open them. Well, Junie B. hardly listens. She spills grape juice on the gown and to cover it up or to blend it in, she colors purple polka dots onto the gown. Junie B. goes to school Friday for graduation and everyone laughs at her because she messed up. The teacher, Mrs. ta ...more

I read the book "Junie B. Jones Is a Graduation Girl" by Barbara Park. I thought this was a funny book that had a great message behind it.

The plot started with a kindergartner named Junie Jones. Junie received her graduation cap and gown so she could celebrate her kindergarten year of school. Junie was instructed to keep the cap and gown in the wrapping, but she failed to do so. Junie then spilled grape juice all over her clothing and when she came back to school, everyone made fun of her for th

I had never read this books until last summer. My summer camp kids brought this in for me to read during our story time. I fell in love with Junie B. Barbara Park created a very interesting, and humorous character who can not stay out of trouble. Children seem to love these stories and I will be adding them to my classroom library.

Next to Ramona Junie is just the best! Junie is sure to help early readers over the hump to chapter books. She is totally hilariousl, out-of-control and the coolest kid in books in years.
No one could resist her adventures in school and out.
This experienced primary teacher would never want to teach without Junie B.

Junie B. Jones is a Graduation Girl is a fun story that shows character and acceptance. Junie B. Jones is a rascal to say the least. She is always getting in trouble. When the end of the year roles around the students in Room Nine are graduating and they get a 'cat and gown'. The only problem is, the gown is white. White it probably not the smartest idea for a group of rambunctious 5 year olds. When graduation day roles around, the whole class soon learns that Junie B. did not follow orders an ...more

All the children in Room Nine are excited when they get their bright white graduation gowns. Mrs. says to keep them in their boxes until the big day. But Junie B. Jones just can’t help herself. Then–uh-oh!–an accident happens! Junie B. Jones has just turned six and is looking forward to her kindergarten graduation, but when grape juice stains the white gown she could not resist trying on, she is afraid graduation is ruined.
I like this book, because it's funny how kindergarden will graduate. They

I just love this book so much! Junie B. Jones is a lovable, laughable, and realatable character. Most people were either like her or knew someone that was like her. This is a great book for a read aloud because it is funny, the chapters are short, and students will be able to relate and engage with the text. This book is not hard to read, but will encourage those who are slow readers. The chapters are small, so students will feel like they are reading a lot more than they actually are. This will ...more

Junie B. can hardly contain herself and opens the bag. Then an accident happened and she doesn't know what she is going to do about it.

The inimitable Junie B. Jones has made a lot of progress during her kindergarten year, and as the time grows near for the class's graduation ceremony, she can't wait to wear the white cap and gown earmarked for those purposes. While she makes it home with the gown clean, Junie tricks her grandfather into letting her have the box in which it's stored, and then she accidentally gets grape juice on it. To add insult to injury, she decides to color the rest of the robe to match the juice stains. Jun ...more

I am currently reading this book with my Kindergartners as they are ready to graduate. It is easy to say that it is the most engaging book I have read with them. This book embodies realistic fiction as the topic addresses a realistic situation that many children could enjoy. They have been able to relate to it even though it is clearly a fiction story. Barbara Park, the author, does a phenomenal job capturing a particular experience that makes sense to children. I have students that have been ab ...more

Junie is funny, irreverent and enjoyable. Ms. Parks creates humorous characters and situations that will have the whole family enjoying these stories. I have recommended Junie B Jones to many parents and young readers. Follow Junie as she begins Kindergarten, rides the smelly school bus or stains her graduation gown with grape juice. Every story is filled with humor and lessons learned.

Junie B Jones Is a Graduation is a fun story about Junie B learning to listen to what her parents tell her to do. Junie B is graduating from kindergarten. When she gets her gown she wants to try it on. Her mother tells her not to, but she does anyway. As result, she spills grape juice all over it and must find a way to cover it up before graduation. In my future classroom, I would use this book to teach students to listen to their parents. Junie B did not and as a result she put herself in a pre ...more

Junie B. is exacted about Graduation Day, a day that she got to go and get a diploma and leave Kindergarten. Her teacher Mrs. said to keep the special cloths clean, but Junie B. got big purple splotches on her cloths. And Graduation Day is not far away, now Junie B. is in trouble.
Junie B. fills the book with her crazy plans, and goofy options of things, like all the importunate holidays, school activities, and even her own home life. She makes this book funny and weird. Age range is 6 and up.

Junie B. Jones is ready and excited to graduate and wear her white graduation gown, so excited she tries it on and gets something else on it too when she takes it out. The story follows Junie as she tries to solve this problem before graduation day. The story is a light hearted and fun story for young readers to enjoy and it is a great story for many kids to relate to since all students graduate kindergarten and may face similar problems. I love all Junie B. Jones books, but this one especially ...more
