Children appreciate the Skippy Jon Jones series, but I do not understand or appreciate them. I find them obnoxious and racist. I can see how a child would like the book because of the character changes and the illustrations, but in reality the book is racist and overbearing.

Children love these upbeat books but i do not enjoy them. I think they are very racist and overbearing.

I read the original Skippy Jon Jones that is in the collection. I love this book for various reasons. I read this book when I was in elementary, and I still remember the book to this day. Skippy Jon Jones is a siamese cat that loves to cause trouble. His vivid imagination lets him escape into a world unknown. In the original book he is sent to his room by his mother for causing trouble, in his room he goes into his closet and enters into a world full of chihuahua's. Skippy Jon Jones is the hero ...more

Skippy Jon Jones is sure to make your students laugh with his sense of humor. However, I'd be cautious of the stereotypes sometimes found in these books. Other than that, these are very fun books that you can definitely use predictions, cause and effect and inferring with. I would suggest these books for children in first and second grade.

I have only read one of the books from this collection and it is called "Skippy Jon Jones in the Doghouse". The book itself was very colorful and was full of action verbs but when reading it it is very hard to follow. I felt like the story was all over the place. I didnt understand what the main point of the story was.

A. This book is about a cat named Skippyjon Jones. Skippyjon loves to be very active. He jumps up and down. He Runs back and forth. Until eventually he falls asleep. When he wakes up he does it again.

B. The major theme in this book is being active.

C. I would use this book to teach my students about prepositions. There are many prepositions in this book (e.g. under, over, near, and far)

I snagged a copy of the Up and Down board book at the local Mighty Dollar. The original Skippy Jon Jones is long and too complicated for babies (but a favorite of my school age students) The board book series seems great based on the 1 out of the 4 that I have.

"I was the last child and only daughter born to Edward and Mary Francis Byron on August 20th, 1951 in the city of Waltham, Massachusetts. My oldest brother Ted was very good at art and my middle brother Kevin kept me laughing with his funny stories.

Growing up we didn't have much money. My mother was very ill, and to make matters worse, I was extremely shy. All my teachers complained that "Judith n
