My daughter discovered the Junie B. Jones books sometime in the middle of her elementary grade years. She is now in 7th grade, and still eagerly awaits each new addition to the series. We have had the most fun sharing them together. Long after she didn't really feel the need for me to read to her at bedtime anymore, we still spent that precious time reading the newest book to each other whenever we brought one home. I cherish not only that opportunity, but the fact that certain expressions or phrases or word combinations that come up in everyday life will remind both of us: "that sounds like Junie B. Jones!" It happens more often that one would think, and we have an instant inside joke that we can chuckle over together. Sometimes an awkward or difficult moment can be gotten through more easily because one of us will adopt Junie B's way of expressing her feelings. I must comment on the complaints about the grammar. I agree that it is not poor grammar - it is just...
My 6 year old son didn't care for reading until I bought a few of the Junie B. Jones books. They are very funny and entertaining and keep the kids interested. We have every Junie B. book and are always on the look out for new ones. These books are interesting enough, have large enough print and are the perfect length for my son to read alone. They gave him the self-confidence he needed to realize that he could read the book without help and that it was actually fun. My son also asks to read Junie B. to his 4 year old sister. He also enjoys picking out the grammar errors and laughes at that silly kindergartner. My kids enjoy trying to mimic Junie B.'s cute sayings like "Speedy quick" etc. My husband and I also enjoy reading Junie B. Jones. Great family reading!
We love Junie B.! Every Friday one of the girls (aged 7 & 9) will bring a Barbara Park book home from the library and she gets to read it to all of us. Junie B. is great because it is written as though she (Junie B) is speaking to you and telling you about her day. In this book school is about over and Room 9 is going a field trip -- to a FARM. Everyone is excited except Junie B. In Junie B. Smells Something Fishy that Meannie Jim told her roosters will peck your head to a nub. And too bad for her 'cause she saw the TV show called When Ponies Attack and now she is mortal afraid of ponies. That's not the worst of it. . .they have roosters AND ponies on farms! Her mother and father, Mrs. and the farmer all talk Junie B. into going on the trip. She has a great time and falls in love with Peep, a fuzzy yellow chick until she finds out that this soft, little, yellow ball will turn into a rooster.
