I read these books out loud to my 6 year old and he loved them. Honestly, my 9 year old listens in, too, and they both think they are hilarious. The stories are silly and fun. My only qualm is that Junie is frequently calling people dumb, stupid, and/or threatening to to knock their lights out and we already have these issues with our 6 year old... but it also gives us a good opportunity to talk about better behavior without making it personal to him.

My daughter's first grade teacher loved Junie B. Jones and started off the year reading many of her books. I was all over a cute spunky girl who wore glasses as the main character. That was until I read some of her books. Besides some humor, I don't find much to love about this girl.

Children's books should not encourage bad grammar. Period. Yes adverbs are a hard concept, but reinforcing the incorrect use of them doesn't do children any favors. Especially when they think it's cute to talk like J

A girl at church gave me these books to read since they were her favorites. They are beginning chapter books and an adult can probably read all 4 in a little over an hour. They follow Junie B Jones through several escapades:

Book 1: The Stinky Smelly Bus: Junie B has to ride the bus to kindergarten and doesn't like it.
Book 2: A Little Monkey Business: Her brother is born and without seeing him, she thinks he is a monkey.
Book 3: Her Big Fat Mouth: They have a career dress up day and she talks more

We have these books and have also listened to the audiobooks read by Lana Quintal (who does a fantastic job reading them). We enjoy all the books and continue to collect them. I know there is a lot of controversy over Junie B.'s sassy crazy, sometimes overly naughty behavior, but to be blatantly honest, I can remember being that age and thinking very similar things. I may or may not have acted on as many of those crazy impulses, but I can remember thinking them. As other people have written in r ...more

My 5 1/2 year old kindergartner just received these as a present for the holidays. I am so disgusted that anyone thinks these are good for kids. First, the grammar is awful. How can kids learn to read, write and speak properly if we read them terrible books like this?! Second, the way that the kids in this book treat each other and speak to each other is not a good model of behavior. With everything about bullying these days, I can't believe that any educator would allow these books in their sch ...more

Mostly okay, the books were repetative, as bad as Maze Runner's forced slang in books 2 and 3 or Dresden Files' copy-paste descriptuons of the car and Harry's views on women. The first book was cute, and had some unexpected and/or funny turns but the later ones in the collection had more predictable and cringy story lines. I also think the timeline was not well thought out because there are clearly time skips but it is still the same year of schooland Junie B is 'almost 6' in the first and fourt ...more

Junie B. Jones has to be one of the most fun characters ever. I tutor English and we read these books and laughed so much. Even as an adult I have to laugh at the hijinks Junie gets into.

Parents might not want their younger children to emulate Junie, but older kids will find her humorous as well. Her stories are very interesting and make for great discussions.

Our now six-year old can't get enought of these books! They are very funny to read as we watch Junie B. get into all kind of trouble with grownups and kids alike. Her human-ness appeals to kids. We tend to have talking points as we read about the correct way to say things (Junie B. gets things muddled up).

I kept hearing about these books and finally bit the bullet and read a few. I can see why these stories would be annoying to parents. The bad grammar, the encouragement of bad behavior, etc. But I can see where these might be entertaining for kids. An okay group of books but maybe a few too many in a row.

I love Junie B. Jones. She is great and I think there's a little of her in me...or me in her...or something.

I have loved every single one I've read. They're great read-alouds to do with the kids. Do it. Or ask me, I'll come over and do it!!!

I bought this set for my granddaughter (First grade reader) She loved it. Junie B is very engaging and gets into situations which this age group can identify with. A great enjoyable beginning reader.

Great read aloud books with a second grader. How can you not like Junie B.? Great series for this age group and mom and dad.

Yikes! The language and name calling! Funny, I suppose, on some level. But I don't want my kids talking like that.
