Meet the World's Funniest First Grader—Junie B. Jones!

It’s a week in “Pair-o-Dice!” With over 50 million books in print, Barbara Park’s New York Times bestselling chapter book series, Junie B. Jones, is a classroom favorite and has been keeping kids laughing—and reading—for over 20 years! In the 26th Junie B. Jones book, Junie B. and her family are going on a vacation to Hawaii! And ha! Mr. Scary is giving Junie a real, actual camera to keep a photo journal of her trip! But taking good vacation pictures is not always easy. ’Cause what if there is an unfortunate inner tube incident at the swimming pool? (And, oh my! Let's not even mention what happens if a tropical bird gets tangled in your hair!) Will Junie B.’s vacation end up picture perfect? Or will her trip to Hawaii be aloha-horrible?

USA TODAY:

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
On her family's vacation to Hawaii, little Junie B. yearns for a picture-perfect day, an afternoon when she can take flawless photos with her fancy new camera. But the entire world (especially those grouchy women on the plane) seems to be conspiring against our budding first-grade Dorothea Lange.
Children's Literature
The unique and adorable voice of Junie B. delights her audience as she bubbles over with excitement about going on a vacation. She finds herself in quite the pickle when her teacher asks her to keep a picture journal of her trip to Hawaii. It seems simple to Junie B. She clicks off pictures and puts them in the picture diary. Well, Mr. Scary makes it a little complicated when he expects her to write simple captions under the pictures. Junie B. can handle that until her adventure in Hawaii starts with her being stuck between two grouchy ladies on the airplane. It has to get better, but it doesn't. One picture after another and Junie B. still is not having her dream vacation, until her new friend, Don, takes her family into the wilds of Hawaii where Junie B. becomes everyone's hero. Again Barbara Park takes her wonderful Junie B. character and shows her young readers how to make a vacation fun and educational. Junie B. may be creating her own travel guides before long. As an educator, I wonder if the voice of Junie B. is more of a misplaced kindergartner then an actual 1st grader. I love Junie B., but she needs to mature a little more to keep up with her readers. My trip to Hawaii through Junie B's eyes still makes me smile and I can't wait to have a student read her next adventure to me. Aloha! 2006, Random House, and Ages 5 to 7.
—Julia Beiker
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-Readers will happily board the plane with precocious Junie B. as she sets off for Hawaii with her parents. Her school assignment is to complete a photo journal documenting her vacation, but from the start it's clear that her adventures are really misadventures. Her first photo captures two "grouchpots," one in the seat in front of Junie B., and the other behind. Clearly, neither passenger is pleased with the girl's seat kicking, endless chatter, or imaginative games with stuffed elephant Philip Johnny Bob and Barbie doll Delores. In the hotel gift shop, Junie insists on purchasing a parrot swim ring that proves much too small and gets stuck on her body for the entire trip. Later episodes include an unfortunate encounter with eels and jellyfish while snorkeling, and a bird that nests in Junie B.'s hair when she adorns herself with exotic flowers. Clever language and outrageous antics make this irrepressible youngster a standout character. Brunkus's delightful black-and-white illustrations are a delight.-Gloria Koster, West School, New Canaan, CT Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

    I read them myself?

    My daughter joined a book club and began reading this series. I must admit that I enjoy reading them myself. Junie B. is so refreshing and true to what little people think and say. I so enjoy hearing the girls at book club discuss and laugh. One night I sat in bed trying to catch up and laughed the whole time. My husband thought I was crazy but I had a ball reading this children's book. Must have for all little girls ages 5 - 8

    Junie B. Jones (and Barbara Parks) does it again!!

    Junie B. Jones is set for another adventure. Junie B. is her usual excited self when she finds out her family is taking a trip to Hawaii. She is even more excited when Mr. Scary gives her a project! He expects her to take pictures and make a journal of her trip to share. Junie thinks this will be a piece of cake but she quickly learns it will not be so simple. Her perfect vacation starts out to be not so perfect as one typical Junie B. situation after another presents itself, starting with grouchy ladies on the plane. Luckily the trip shapes up eventually but not after some hilarious encounters and experiences. This story is yet another gem from author Barbara Parks. She writes Junie B. with such an original voice and personality that makes every book seem new and fresh. As your are reading her stories you can easily picture a first grader you know saying some of the same things that Junie B. says. I highly recommnend this book, and any others in the Junie B. series to parents, children and educators. I read Junie B. aloud to my kindergarteners and they cannot wait for each new book. I find myself enjoying them as much as the students. These books are honestly laugh out loud funny. I highly recommend 'Aloha-ha-ha' and all other Junie B. titles to anyone who needs a book that will entertain both children and adults.
