    I got this out of the library for my 4yo on a classmate's mom's recommendation. My 4yo loved it, I hated it. I expect it would be fine for a slightly older kid who would get the "humor", but for my 4yo it was just exposing her for the first time to a bunch of inappropriate stuff. Specifically: The grammar is atrocious. It's supposed to be cute, but it sets my teeth on edge. I wouldn't let my daughter talk like that, so why would I read her a book written that way? I corrected it as I read it. Junie I got this out of the library for my 4yo on a classmate's mom's recommendation. My 4yo loved it, I hated it.

I corrected it as I read it. Junie B. is a brat. My daughter and her friends haven't yet gotten to the "you're not my friend" stage, I certainly don't want her learning it from these books! There is a "teaching moment" at the end, but when you're reading it over the course of several days it takes much too long to get to it for the message to sink in. The language sucks. ;) Lots of "dumb" and "stupid" which my daughter is horrified by, both being "bad words" at preschool. We may revisit these books when she's older and can understand it all a little better, but hopefully she'll find better books she likes just as much!

    Junie B. is a very anxious 5 year old. She is in kindergarten and her parents had a baby boy. She was very excited about having a baby brother. One day, she was with her grandma and her grandma told her that her bother was "the cutest little monkey". Just like any other 5 year old would do, Junie believed her. She went to school and told all of her friends that her brother was a monkey. Her friends then started giving her presents and bribing her so they would be the first one to see her brother Junie B. is a very anxious 5 year old.

He had to call Junie's grandmother so she could clarify that Junie's brother was a baby but he was just cute. Junie B. Jones is a 5 year old girl in kindergarten. She was happy to be getting a new brother. Toward the end of the book she was not as excited, because she found out her baby brother wasn't a monkey. She is very gullible just like any other little kid. I recommend this book, or any Junie B. Jones books, for grades 3-5. These ages would like it the most because, they Junie B. is younger like them. They can relate to the same thing Junie B. went through. Although, any age could read it. If you need a good laugh, you have to read a Junie B. book.

    I was entering junior high school in the 90s when the Junie B. Jones series was new, so I was oblivious to them until now, when I am beginning to rotate some short chapter books into my almost 5-year-old's bedtime story routine. On the one hand, I share the other reviewers' concerns about the book's language. As an adult, I appreciate the comedy in Junie B.'s juvenile diction, but as a parent, I want to encourage my son to speak, well, better.

On the other hand, I don't think the author of these books expects the kindergarten diva to be a model for readers so much as a point of conversation for kids, their parents, and their teachers. Do I want my son to call his friends stupid and guilt them into giving him their snack tickets and high tops? No, but I am glad these things come up in books so that I can talk with him about them before he faces them in real life. Anyway, whether I love the series or not is beside the point -- I already can tell I will be reading them all, probably multiple times.

    My 4.5 year old loves the Junie B. books so far. I replace some words here or there so that she doesn't go around calling others stupid or dumb...just as I do for some of the language in the beloved Roald Dahl books. Or we pause in the moment and talk about what Junie B. should or shouldn't have said or did and she learns from it. These books have her even more excited for Kindergarten than she already is.

    Summary: In this book, Junie B. Jones, a kindergartener, is getting a surprise from her mom and dad. When she hears "surprise" she thinks that must mean there is a wrapped present hiding somewhere in the house that she must go find. She searches all over, but is not finding anything. Then her parents inform her that there is not actually a present, but that the surprise is a new baby brother or sister! As exciting as the news may sound, Junie B. is not thrilled. From what she knows about babies i Summary: In this book, Junie B. Jones, a kindergartener, is getting a surprise from her mom and dad. When she hears "surprise" she thinks that must mean there is a wrapped present hiding somewhere in the house that she must go find. She searches all over, but is not finding anything. Then her parents inform her that there is not actually a present, but that the surprise is a new baby brother or sister! As exciting as the news may sound, Junie B. is not thrilled. From what she knows about babies is that they are P.U. She certainly doesn't want that in her house. Unfortunately, she has no choice because the baby is coming very soon. In fact, a few nights later her mom and dad go to the hospital and Junie B. is left with her Grandma and Grandpa Miller, who she refers to as Frank and Helen. That evening Grandma Miller goes to the hospital and leaves Junie B. with her grandpa. This means pie and just pie for dinner along with five waffles and endless syrup the next morning! Before leaving for school, Grandma Miller comes with great news. Junie B. Jones has a new little brother who is just the "cutest little monkey". She's told he has long fingers and toes and a head full of black hair. Junie B. is so excited! She loves monkeys! When she gets to school she tells her whole class during show and tell that her new baby brother is a monkey! Many kids don't believe her which gets her into a fight and sent to the principal’s office. After Junie B. and Principal talk it out a make a phone call to Grandma Miller, it is cleared up the her brother is certainly not a monkey. It was only a figure of speech. The class then goes on to make up examples like, busy bee, eats like a pig, and couch potato. After school that day, Junie B.'s mom and dad are waiting for her, and in her dad's arms is a little yellow bundle with a full head of black hair. He may not be a monkey, but Junie B. loves him! Response: I have always enjoyed the Junie B. Jones series of books. She has such a quirky personality that makes it fun to read. My favorite part of these books is just her style. Barbara Parks (the author) really captures the voice of curious little children. Working with small kids proves that kids say the funniest things without even trying. Reading about the silly life of Junie B. Jones reminds me of kids that I work with so it's always a joy to read them. I think that this book in particular sends a message of welcoming new experiences and overcoming challenges. Junie B. did not want a baby in the house. Not only do they smell, but they get all the new stuff while Junie B. is stuck with her old stuff. This event is common in the lives of many young children. I think that this book is a great way for children to find out that they are not the only one's going through that type of situation. Classroom Connection: The Junie B. Jones books seem to me, to be a good book to do as a class read aloud. It does not focus on a real subject that the kids can learn knowledge from, but it develops their literature and expands their thinking. I would read this book to my class if we were discussing family dynamics or there were a few children that were all expecting new siblings. I would also keep this book in my classroom library for children to borrow if they are in a similar situation. Also, an activity to go along with this would be for children to draw a picture of what it was like when they got a new sibling or what they would want their sibling to look like. Then they could write a description to go along with it. Text Complexity: This book has an interest level of grades 3-5, however I see that more as a range of when it can be read independently. I know that children in grades 1 and 2 would get a kick out of the humorous style of Junie B. Jones. The book has a grade equivalent of 2 and a lexile of 410.

Junie B takes her seriously and thinks her baby is a real monkey so she tells her teacher and classmates this getting her into trouble. But in the end she sees him and realizes that he isn't a monkey but is as cute as a little monkey. These books are a little on the 'hyper' side and she is a bit disrespective for my taste but my teen age special needs son has enjoyed the first two from the series so we'll see how many we end up reading. And different adventures she gets into. And you really need to read these in order to follow the story line and Junie B's understanding of her world.

    Yikes. This book was on a list of recommended books for kindergarteners and first graders. Because it was a quick read, I sat down and previewed it while we were at the library. The main character was nasty to her parents and teachers, and socially aggressive towards her "best friends;" basically showing every quality that I'd like to prevent in my child. I would never encourage my child to read this book. Lets give our children a little more credit and not assume that they are little brats just Yikes.

    Very cute. Grammar gets murdered as usual, it is a Junie book after all. My very favorite line involves animals at the zoo and how they may pull you through the bars and kill you. Morbid? Yes, but you can picture parenting a kid like Junie and how you would have to constantly warn her of the terrible things that could happen if she ran off at the zoo. Junie is just parroting those warnings and it's hilarious. I've finally surrendered to the idea that my daughter will NEVER enjoy reading the same Very cute.

I was a "Where the Red Fern Grows", "Black Stallion", "Irish Red" sort of child. My daughter cannot stand animal books. She is an "Amelia Bedelia", "Captain Underpants" and "Junie B. Jones" sort of kid. Yes, I get that a lot of parents don't enjoy Junie and she is sort of a brat. But, she's no worse than many kids. If your kid isn't like Junie, she at least knows a kid just like her.

In the end, Junie B comes home only to find that her “monkey brother” is in fact just a normal child. I enjoyed this story because of Junie B’s lovable, charismatic, and humorous attitude to life. I would likely recommend this book to many of my friends.

    I read this book aloud to my two kids in one sitting and they thought it was hilarious. I wasn't a big fan of Junie B. using the word "dumb" among other inappropriate comments. However, it's very obvious that most of the things that Junie B. Jones does are inappropriate. My kids could point out all of Junie B's faults so I don't think I have to worry about her becoming my kids' new moral compass.

    Personal Response: I give this book a three out of five stars. I like these Junie B. Jones books but this one was probably the least favorite out of all of them that I have read. I think I would have liked it better if there was more of a variety of things that happened throughout the book. Plot: Junie's mom is pregnant with a little boy and she cannot wait for him to come.

I like these Junie B. Jones books but this one was probably the least favorite out of all of them that I have read. I think I would have liked it better if there was more of a variety of things that happened throughout the book. Plot: Junie's mom is pregnant with a little boy and she cannot wait for him to come. Junie's mom goes into labor, and Junie has to go sleep over at her grandma's house after school. When Junie asks about her brother her grandma says he's as cute as a monkey. Junie takes this literally and she thinks that she has a actual monkey as a brother. The next day at school, Junie tells all of her friends that her little brother is a monkey and now she's even more excited to meet him. Junie's mom and her brother finally come home and Junie realizes that her brother is not actually a monkey and she is heartbroken, but still thinks he is cute. Characterization: The main character in this book is a kindergarten girl whose name is Junie B. Jones. Junie is a very energetic kid that cannot take no for an answer. Throughout the book Junie is very energetic but in the end she is sad because she doesn't have a monkey as a brother. Junie's mom is another character in this book who is stressed out because of her pregnancy. Junie's grandma is who ends up taking care of Junie when her mom goes into labor. Setting: This book takes place in Junie's town and at her grandma's house. This book takes place in modern times since her mom goes to the hospital to have her baby and Junie rides the bus to school. Recommendation: I would recommend this book to anyone in first through fifth grade. I think that those ages are good because this book is the reading level of those grades. I would also recommend this to girls more than boys because it's told from the point of view of a girl and I think girls would relate to that more.

Most of the book it is at her school or her house. When she is with her grandma, she is at her house because that is where her grandma babysits her. During school they are either at the playground or the classroom. Audience: Anyone from grades 3-5 would enjoy this book. This is a very easy read, so anyone would be capable to read this. Mostly girls would like this because it centers on Junie, the girls would relate more to this book.

Eventually this landed Junie in the principal's office where he called her grandmother and clarified that her brother is a real baby but he's just cute. The quality of plot was okay. I didn't think it was that interesting but to children it might be. I think children would definitely be able to relate to this story so in that way the plot is very appropriate. I'd say the age range is primary to intermediate. I think advanced 5-8 years would be able to read this and definitely intermediate. The words are few syllables which makes for an easy read but there are chapters which adds a challenge. Just like most chapter books this one had few pictures. There were some but they were scattered throughout the story. They were simple black and white pictures that realistically showed what part of the book was occurring at that moment. They were also very realistic. I'd recommend this book to children that are going to become big brothers or sisters. I think it's a really great way for them to get used to the idea of having a new baby and maybe even help them adjust to the new change.

I can relate to Junie about her little brother I have a brother and he gets all the attention and I do not like him most of the time. When ever the teacher left the classroom Junie would always say to everyone start making a buzzing sound. The author did a good job making the book believable it kind of reminds me of my kindergarten year. The main character is believable alot of kids do not like their sisters or brothers. The author wrote a bad word liar in the book and I did not like that. But, overall I liked the book.

Junie B. tells this to her friends at school, who are eager to see her monkey brother. When her friends start bribing her, things get really good, until Mrs. finds out. This book wasn't quite as good as the first one, nor do I think it's as good as the rest, from what I remember. It's funny, as they always are, but not as funny. It's still wonderful, don't get me wrong, it's just not quite up to par with the rest of the series. I read these books with my sister, who is just going into first grade. This is one of the easier books we read, but there are still some difficult words for her to sound out. She gave the book two thumbs up and an "Awesome plus awesome" (so double awesome, I guess.)

While the books are meant for young/beginner readers, Barbara Park's humor in her Junie B. Jones series is hilarious for all ages. These books are what I remember the most from children's literature. The character of Junie B. made me think of myself, and I loved how each book was a new adventure! This book was one of my favorites out of the entire collection. I hope you enjoy it as well!

    I have always been the biggest fan of the Junie B. Jones series. I remember countless hours in elementary school reading these books and enjoying every moment. However, it had been awhile since I had last read one so it is safe to say that I was joyful after reading one again, it was nostalgic. I especially loved this one because my baby cousin is about to go though the same thing that Junie B. Jones is going through in this book. The situation where there is a baby and every one wants to admire I have always been the biggest fan of the Junie B. Jones series. I remember countless hours in elementary school reading these books and enjoying every moment. However, it had been awhile since I had last read one so it is safe to say that I was joyful after reading one again, it was nostalgic. I especially loved this one because my baby cousin is about to go though the same thing that Junie B. Jones is going through in this book. The situation where there is a baby and every one wants to admire him, but the older sibling just doesn’t understand. My little cousin is getting a new baby brother soon and every time we bring him up to her she just says, “No brother!” So it was funny reading this and knowing how Junie B. Jones is feeling. I also enjoy the character of Junie B. Jones because she isn’t your average sweet girl that we so often read in these books. She is an out of control, little mischievous girl and that makes books like this enjoyable to read because they are humorous.

Her two best friends are Grace and Lucille and they really want to see Junie's brother, but Junie doesn't want them to. They are giving Junie everything they own just so they can see him. Now, Junie wants to take her little brother into school for pet day. Lucille and Grace are very excited. The main characters in this book are Lucille, Grace, Junie, and Junie's little brother.

Lucille is very spoiled and rude. She gets whatever she wants. Grace is very nosy, but respectful. She cared about Junie a lot and is a good friend to her. Junie is loud and obnoxious. Junie's little brother cries a lot. I would recommend this book to any children from the ages of 6-10. I think it is too easy of a read for anyone over the age of 10. This book is gender neutral. I think both genders would really enjoy it. I rate this book 5 stars out of 5.

The tone of the book reflects the voice of many elementary age students. It also models how Junie is coping getting a new baby brother. e. discussion questions: -What do you notice about Junie’s behavior? -How would you have reacted if your parents told you that they were having a baby? -Why does Junie think that her brother is a monkey?

    I read this one to my daughter and I find Junie B. endearing. She is mischievous (kind of like my daughter), and the adults around her get a little frustrated with her (kind of like me), but she really means well. The author really got inside the head of this five year old - the grammar at times is incorrect, but this helps to make Junie B. come to life on the pages - as I read I feel like I am talking the way a bright and curious five year old would speak about her experiences.

Emily (5 1/2): It was great because Junie B. Jones thought her baby brother was a monkey! It was just a regular baby. I don't like the part where Grace and Lucille didn't want to play ponies with Junie B. Jones.

This can help them realize how ridiculous Junie was being and they will want to act more mature to impress their parents.

    I really wanted to like the Junie B. Jones series. This was our big introduction to chapter books for my Kindergartner but I couldn't get past the horrible language. I can understand that Junie is supposed to be a little bratty, that's part of the character development and there is a lesson at the end but getting there was painful. I was actually embarrassed to read some of the things out loud to my six year old. Never would I allow my children to be so disrespectful of others as Junie is in thi I really wanted to like the Junie B. Jones series.

Jones books that we checked out will be going back to the library unread.

    Another good and hilarious book in the nostalgic Junie B. Jones series. Junie is kinda upset that she is having a new brother until she hears from her grandma that her brother is the "cutest little monkey". Junie believes her brother is a real monkey and tells her friends at school, starting a fight between her friends Grace and Lucille. As always, I love Junie B. Jones. All of the books seem like they are being told by an actual fiesty 5 year old- Barbara Park is good like that. I definitely reme Another good and hilarious book in the nostalgic Junie B.

    The writing is terrible and anti-productive for teaching kids learning to read, The main character is a hateful, disrespectful, socially aggressive brat. There's a lot of uses of words many small kids would consider "bad" such as "stupid". It's a cute story. & the art is nice. I get that the whole thing is ment to be funny. But mostly it's painful. And VERY annoying. This isn't the sort of behavior & character qualities is want to reinforce in my neice or any child. Not recommended.

    Salah satu topik yang diangkat di novel seri kedua Junie B. Jones ini adalah pengaruh idiom bagi anak-anak. Idiom atau ungkapan seringkali belum bisa dimengerti anak-anak sama persis seperti yang orang dewasa maksudkan. Sudah lazim umumnya anak-anak akan memahami dengan polos seperti apa adanya yang disampaikan. Kita bilang A, maka yang ditangkap oleh mereka juga A, bukan A+. review lengkap http://www.lensabuku.com/2381/2-junie...
