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.

This was fun to read aloud to my 5-year-old, because Junie B. does a lot of yelling and has bad grammar (significantly worse than my own kid).

But that's also why I probably won't read any more of them to her for a while. I don't need to give her any additional help learning how to act like a brat. And I read books to her partially to teach her good grammar.*

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

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.

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

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

I read the book "Junie B. Jones and Her Big Fat Mouth" by Barbara Park. I thought this book was quite adequate yet funny. The plot to the book was average, and the vocabulary was easy to understand. This made the book simple to read.

The plot starts with Junie Jones and her loud mouth. She says she will have the best job when she is older, and everyone believes her. When she gets home she asks her mother for help with which job to pick. When her mother is busy and can't tend to her right away, J

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

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

Another hilarious Junie B. Jone's book. Junie B. is having troubles with speaking out of term. For job day, Junie B. says that her job is going to be the greatest. This book is best suited for students in second through fifth grades. The genres of this book are comedy/humor and realistic fiction. The themes are elementary school, jobs, careers, work, and mischief. I gave this book five stars because it is laugh out loud funny. I found myself chuckling during the part where Junie B. sees a candy ...more

This books revolves around Junie B making up her mind about what to be and dress up as for her Job Day presentation. She's rather clueless what she wants to be and getting really confused if there is a job title where she can paint, save the world from danger, unlocking doors, which she then decides it's called Janitor. Of course that invites much laughter from her class but it ends well in a funny and interesting note. The school janitor even comes in for a sharing on the job.
Katie
Junie B.'s observations on how she gets herself into trouble pale in comparison to the MANY other ways she gets herself into trouble. She's a bit of a lunatic. The best part, however, was her recognition of the wonderful traits embodied by her best friend. Still, just right for a first grader who sees through the ridiculousness and in no way wants to emulate Junie B.'s actions.

My daughter liked it. I found myself correcting some of the grammar as a read it aloud. I get it the author is mimicking child grammar but i felt it was a bit too much. I will continue because I know my daughter was engaged and i feel like it leaves us discussing more.

I see the appeal, but she's a little too bratty. Ramona did it first and Ramona did it better.
