The kids in Room 1 are invited to an easter egg hunt at Lucille's rich, expensive mansion! But Junie B. Jones must battle her classmate May and a bunny suit if she's going to win that playdate in Lucille's new heated indoor pool.


The Junie B. Jones series is very popular among young readers. As the spunky protagonist moves on to first grade, the popularity continues. What the book lacks in character development, it makes up for in silly situations and approachable language. Junie B.

My daughter reads out loud to her brothers and me in the car to and from school. Since the beginning of the school year, I've heard about Lauren the Puppy Fairy finding lost pets, and Miss Frizzle driving her magic school bus through the laws of physics, and Jack and Annie dropping their tree-house on every time period since the dawn of creation, and Stanley becoming flat and then round again, and found all these series to be anywhere from simplistic and insipid to solidly educational and mildly ...more

Junie B. was my favorite series growing up, but I hadn't read any of the First Grader books yet, so naturally I had to take advantage of this opportunity. Junie B. still carries that same spunk in this book that I remember her having in the earlier ones. This is a funny book that many students may be able to relate to in some way, but it doesn't have much take away except for a little bit at the very end about selflessness and being a

Junie B. Jones and her class get invited to richie Lucille's house for an Easter party. Junie has all sorts of adventures (and calamities) while at the party - like willing the jelly bean contest but not really enjoying the prize for winning. The highlight of the party is the egg hunt, particularly obtaining the golden egg, which has a huge prize to go with it. I enjoyed this Junie B. Jones book though it's not one of the most humorous books of the series.

I thought this book was fine to read to the class when we read it to our K-1 group for latchkey. I felt that the words used in the book, their parents consider cuss words now (dumb, stupid, etc.) I think that it cause conflict for them to continue to listen to the book when they heard those words. I loved Junie B. Jones as a kid because of her sassiness, but it has changed in the couple years for children to like and get.

Why did she ever like Lucille? Though May is definitely worse.

It was good because it was talking about a dumb bunny at first but at the end it said a smart bunny instead of a dumb bunny.

*Note: This is a review of the entire series as a whole because I feel the same about each book.*

Quite honestly, I think this should be one of the first chapter books you let your kids read. Sure, the grammar is a little off at times (it's a small child, come on!) and the subject matter can get a little crazy (Once again, it's a small child!) these books are entertaining and easy to read for your little readers! My cousin who is 6 LOVES these books, and when I was little I loved them too. Overal

Junie B. Jones is super excited to attend Lucille's Easter Egg Hunt and is even more excited that the grand prize for finding the most eggs is a play date with Lucille and her indoor pool. As excited as she was, things did not turn out so well for her at the party. This hilarious book is perfect for any reader at any age!

I have always been a fan of the Junie B. Jones series; I read them since I was an elementary school student because it was written in a language that was simple, and familiar to me. To this day, I think that's why it is valuable for children to read these books: they may not be literary works of genius, but they describe relationships and thoughts that kids can understand, and can also show how their ideas may not always be kind or logical when put into action. I also like how Junie B. continues ...more

This book is very cute and quite hilarious. I remember loving the Junie B. Series when I was little but I had never read this one since it is a newer one. In the book, Junie B continuously calls May silly names. In the book, Lucille invites all the students in the class over to her castle. It is obvious early in the story that Lucille is very wealthy. Lucille’s mother, father and nana have put together a very extravagant Easter egg picnic and Easter egg hunt. The very exciting thing about this E ...more

Junie B. is invited to Lucille's Spring Party where she has to play the Easter Bunny and manages to find the hidden golden egg that comes with it the amazing prize of getting to play with Lucille and swim in her indoor pool. Junie B., however, gives the egg to Sheldon, who likes Lucille, but has lost all his eggs to the "swooper," May.
I was intrigued by Park’s use of language to create characters and personality, specifically, Junie B. Park uses repetition of the unequivocal right-out-of-kiddom

When I picked this book up to read it, I was not too sure what it was going to be about. I knew it involved an Easter Bunny somehow. The book talks about how Junie B. is calling her friends "dumb bunny" and she gets in trouble for calling names. So, instead, she thinks the name in her head where nobody can hear her, but she still tells them that she is thinking about it in her head and so she gets told on. Then one of her friends, Lucy, is having an Easter Egg Hunt and is inviting everybody in R ...more

As much as I really liked the other holiday Thanksgiving and Christmas Junie B. books, this one I did not like at all! It is easy for me to read this with the mind set of as a first grader because I have lots of experience with that age/grade as a former elementary school librarian, plus I have two granddaughters that very same age now. I am very familiar with 6 yr. old non-perfect speech, actions, and outbursts, so all that doesn’t bother me with Junie B. and her friends. The classroom antics a ...more

In this book, Junie B. Jones and her first grade classroom is invited to an Easter Egg hunt where she is deemed the actual Easter Bunny and wins the golden egg, but gives it to another classmate to spite the girl she does not care for. It works out because the classmate she gave the golden egg to was very happy and Junie B. felt good about it, too. This story is important because it shows that sometimes even though the right thing to do might not make you happy, you will be surprised at how good ...more

I often read books in order to "bond" with my adult children. Now I am reading books to bond with grandchildren! My oldest grandchild is seven years old and she loves Junie B. Jones. She gave me Dumb Bunny to read. My favorite character in the book was Mr. Scary, the first grade teacher. Here are his rules for tattling.

1) Count to 20 before tattling
2) If you still feel like tattling, count to 20 again
3) If you still feel like tattling after that, go home, eat dinner, go to bed, wake up, eat bre

First, let me say I do not like the word "dumb" and I do not allow my children to use it, however, it worked for this book and I actually said it a few times while reading it aloud to my children on a long car ride back home to Pennsylvania from Wisconsin! We read this book in one day. Junie B. reminds me so much of my daughter - outgoing, intelligent, inquisitive, outspoken, and used to getting her own way.

I grew up on Junie B. Jones books so I have always been a fan of them. They are such a great book to be able to relate to at the elementary school level. The way she thinks and talks children really do get and understand. Great read aloud for the classroom.

My 7yo son brought this book home from school. I laughed out loud as I read. Very witty ... but I'm not sure a first grader would get the funniest parts. The only things I would say against the book are that the book is written in children's voice -- poor grammar and all. This makes the book more accessible but I want my son to know correct word use and grammar so I have to point out mistakes to him.

This book is about an Easter egg hunt and how Junie B. is stuck wearing a bunny suit. She wants to win, but it is hard getting a lot of eggs with the suit on. The illustration are funny and showing how she would fall over just trying to get an egg. When she writes in her journal it looks like a first grader wrote it. She even crosses out words that she spelled wrong and puts the correct spelling above.
