Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Thanksgiving Day is approaching and while others are thinking of pumpkin pie and pilgrims, Junie B. has her heart set on her class winning the school contest for making the best thankful list. Unfortunately, she's not at all clear what she should be thankful about and, of course, that bully Tattletale May isn't making it any easier. This delightful chapter book does reconfirm one thing for which we can thankful every day of the year: Barbara Park's Junie B. chapter books. Now in trade paperback and NOOK Book.

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
Here is another funny adventure with Junie B. Jones at Thanksgiving time. She is a favorite children's book character whose author knows how to tickle everyone's funny bone, and a few other giggle spots as well. This book finds Junie working hard in school to make a list of things for which she is grateful. Mr. Scary, Junie's teacher says if classmates in Room One create a good list together they may be able to win the school contest. It doesn't take long to discover that that not everyone agrees on items to be included. For example: is toilet paper a good item to be grateful for? How about a new T shirt? Each chapter brings with it new issues. Junie B. has a hard time trying to accept some decisions and the people who suggest them, especially when she feels grouchy. When the class list is completed, families of Room One children come to school to see costumed young Pilgrims and Native Americans celebrate their program version of the very first Thanksgiving together. Of course Junie can't wait to see if Room One is declared the school contest winner. Whether the book is read aloud or independently by a child, the familiar and large drawings in some chapters will clearly display the emotions of Junie and her friends. There is always plenty of excitement when Junie B. Jones is around. Even the turkey can't help but smile.
From the Publisher
From USA TODAY:
"Junie B. is the darling of the young-reader set."

From Publisher' Weekly:
"Park convinces beginning readers that Junie B.—and reading—are lots of fun."

From Kirkus Reviews:
"Junie's swarms of young fans will continue to delight in her unique take on the world....A hilarious, first-rate read- aloud."

From Booklist:
"Park, one of the funniest writers around . . . brings her refreshing humor to the beginning chapter-book set."

From Time magazine:
"Junie B. Jones is a feisty six-year-old with an endearing penchant for honesty."

From School Library Journal:
"Readers will relate instantly to the trials and tribulations of this first grader....She is always endearing and wonderfully funny."

Kirkus Reviews
It's bound to be a special Thanksgiving feast when Junie B. and her classmates are celebrating. The school is holding a Thankful Contest, and the very patient Mr. Scary thinks his class is the one to win it. He calls them, "definitely the most creative first graders I've ever had." When the class puts together a list on the board, he has second thoughts. Canned cranberry jelly, exploding biscuits, "Nipsy Doodles," rainbow sprinkles and especially item number five (toilet paper) have Mr. Scary frowning his eyebrows. While the class discussion of freedom (and why none of the first graders has it) is worth the price of admission, the rest of the story bounces from one out-of-control episode to another. While Junie B. still has her own irrepressible voice and worldview, it's hard to believe that she is still using baby talk (bestest, hottish, sweatish) after 1 1/2 years in school and even harder to believe that nemesis May would engage in rough pretend play (with a stuffed elephant, no less) in November of first grade. It would have been fun to see Junie B. debunk some of the traditional Thanksgiving rituals: the questionable friendship feast, the silly Pilgrim costumes and the use of the word "Indian" (by the teacher). Junie B. still brings a smile, but sometimes it's an uncomfortable one. (Fiction. 5-8)
