1st-4th grade Read aloud/alone

Park has you laughing along with Junie B. Jones from the very beginning. Junie finds out one night at dinner that her parents have a surprise for her and while they proceed to tell her that she will soon have a new brother or sister, Junie is looking for her surprise, wondering where they have hidden it. The story continues with Junie getting herself into one humorous antic after another telling her class that her new brother is a real live baby monkey! The book is printed in a large typeface with black letters on white pages. The chapters are approximately eight pages long with at least one pencil illustration to help the reader visual what is going on. Sentence length varies from four to eight words and paragraphs from two to four sentences. Junie B. is presented as your typical kindergarten student taking everything said to her literally. Children will relate with the many things that happen to Junie both at school and at home.
