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

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

Junie B. Jones and her
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

If it's Junie B it has got to B good! All of the books in this series are hysterical!

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

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!)

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

I love the Junie B. Jones series. I remember reading them as a fourth grader, they are so easy to read and enjoyable too. They are also relatable too. That's always really nice to have as well. Well, Junie B. jones and her big fat mouth was awesome! The book truly begins in kindergarten, and at the moment gets punished. Then the teacher invite a cop to class as a guest speaker. So the cop is there to speak about how his job is like and what he does during his job. After him a dentist is invited ...more
My 7-year-old son recently told me that he wants to own the entire Junie B. Jones set. The price tag is $50. Umm, this is what the library is for, friend. Still, I love that he loves them because I love them, too!

Favorite part 1:
That dumb old baby takes up all of Mother's time.
And he's not even interesting.
He doesn't know how to roll over. Or sit up. Or play Chinese checkers.
He is a dud, I think.
I would like to take him back to the hospital. But Mother said no.

Favorite part 2:
(Background: Previo
I really liked this story for the intended audience. I liked how this book continued to show how Junie B is adjusting to have a baby in the house even though the the baby was the subject of the last book. It was a natural continuation of the story line. I continued to enjoy the realistic depiction of Junie B as a real five year old in all parts of her character, from her voice to her emotions. I really loved how the story pulled the earlier events in and made the janitor important to the story.
Given how much I could not stand the first 2 Junie B books I read with my 4 year old, I can't believe I'm about to admit that I kind of actually liked this one.

Some of the comments out of Junie's mouth I could do without; so I still sensor what I read out loud. And the bad grammar & spelling?Ugh! At least this story had a bit more substance to it and it wasn't focused on Junie being sneaky or manipulative.
This was the first Junie B Jones book that I read together with my first grader. We both found it really funny! It's relatable for young kids, definitely. My guy is much more of a rule follower than Junie B, and he was quick to point out all the things she does that "we shouldn't do" - use words like big fat stupid, etc! While the language was very realistic for a kindergartner, I also feel like it means this should be read by (or with) children who are a bit older. When a kid is learning correc ...more
These Junie stories are huge with the kids, so I thought I’d try one. In this, the third (and a very slim book it is), Junie brags that she will represent the best job in the world at Job Day, but then doesn’t know what to be. She ends up coming as a janitor.

I don’t know how I feel about this book. I didn’t like how Junie’s bad grammar and very bratty ways went uncorrected and the only form of discipline her mother had was to yell or talk sternly. However, the message of the book (no job, or the
Lauren Burrell
the Junie B. Jones books are hilarious I have never read this particular one but it was no different. In this particular story Junie is having trouble controlling her mouth and get in trouble at school for it. She also gets in trouble because job day is coming up at school and Junie has no idea what to be. Her big fat mouth also gets her into trouble with this because she has blurted out too many things she wants to be and now has to come up with something very creative. This book is very funny, ...more
