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.

A cute way to end the first school year for Junie B. Jones. Our girls enjoy her stories and we are looking forward to her first grade antics. We are steadily working our way through the whole series...

On the day of graduation she came in with spot galore and her classmates decided to make her feel less embarrassed so they all colored spots

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. At the end of like kindergarten the teacher could read the story to students right before they move up to first grade and have them write a short thing about how they feel about moving up to first grade and ...more

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.
It is a funny book. Junie B. just can't stay out of trouble! She spills juice on her WHITE graduation gown from trying to give her stuffed animals a drink. She tries to fix it by putting bright purple poka dots on it.
Shauna Walters
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

Junie B. Jones has been around since I was in kindergarten and it will definitely be available to my class when I'm a teacher. This book I haven't read in years but it reminded me why I loved these books, They're hilarious! They keep you wondering what she is going to get into, and she has a great personality. In this specific book Junie B. Is extra anxious about graduating kindergarten and she wants everything to be perfect, will she be able to have her perfect graduation? Read to find out.
Junie B. Jones is the modern day Ramona of Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary!
Junie B. Jones stays in trouble and can never seem to follow the directions she's given.

She's about to graduate kindergarten, and receives her cap and gown from her teacher, she can't wait to wear it and ends up soiling her gown! Unable to admit to hide or admit her mistake, she makes the matter worse and doesn't have time to get help with removing the stain before graduation.

Children ages 6-10 love this character!

Junie B. Jones graduating from kindergarten paralleled with my own daughter graduating from kindergarten. My daughter loved hearing about Junie preparing for her graduation ceremony in the auditorium. She also had her own special graduation outfit just like Junie B.(a painted t-shirt that was KEPT AT SCHOOL until parents dropped their kids off for the ceremony. Hmmmmmm......did her teacher read this book and know about Junie B.'s grape juice mess?). My daughter loved seeing the picture where the ...more

This book is just one of the many books about the same character. Junie B. Jones is a Kindergartener who is about to graduate, get a diploma, and move on to first grade. Along with being nervous about moving to a new grade and maybe loosing her best friends, she asks a lot of questions to her teacher, Mrs. Junie is curious throughout the entire book, takes advice from some of the students she shouldn't, like Paulie Allen Puffer, and on graduation day she is sad she has to leave her teacher Mrs. ...more
Junie B. was supposed to keep her graduation outfit white, but she spilled grape juice on it so she colored purple marker on it so it would blend in. Then she cried when her friend saw it and her teacher saw it. I liked that some of her friends and some of the mean boys thought, "Maybe we should put dots on ours so that Junie B. won't cry anymore and then we'll be nice."

4. When you graduate your kindergarten, how did you feel? Did you happy or sad? Why?
---I felt sad to say goodbye to my teachers, but I was really looking forward to entering an elementary school. When I was young I was so tomboy and good at making friends, so I was excited to meet new friends.

5. I totally like this book! The main character
Gianna Mosser
Junie is always funny and silly (her animal voiceovers are her at her essence), but I was so impressed with the kindness in this ending that I thought it was perfectly timed for own rising first grader. They really do grow so much during the kindergarten year, and acceptance is one of the most important lessons.
