5.0 out of 5 starsJunie B. First Grader (at Last!)
Reviewed in the United States on April 24, 2019
A quick summary from my 7-year-old. "I love this book. At first, Junie B. didn't know anybody but then she made friends. Also, she got glasses and at first she didn't like them, but by the end she did."
Not thrilled with negative message. 6 year olds going to 1st grade shouldn't be reading about a girl with this much attitude. Quotes from the first few pages include "I actually do not care for that girl" and "I rolled my eyes at the ceiling" and "I looked at her real annoyed". These are not messages I want my daughter to get. I know I can't protect her forever but 6 is just too young for this. Sorry - not a fan.
Junie B Jones is a much loved family favorite, I bought this for daughter #3 , she loves it as her two older sisters did as well , highly recommend any Junie B Jones book for any young readers and they are great to read to your children as well
I ordered a few of the Junie B. books for my granddaughter, as she is entering first grade in the fall. She is now reading chapter books and I knew these were popular with the young set.
However, my husband and I were a little distressed at the disrespectful attitude that June B. shows to her teachers and her peers. We do not think this type of behavior should be encouraged and will be looking for other books that reflect our values.
