Junie B. Jones and the Mushy Gushy Valentine 4.3 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 152 reviews.

My 5 year old grand daughter requested Junie B. books for her birthday. When she opened her package she exclaimed 'My Junie B. books'. She asked her dad to read the 'Mushy Gushy Valentime' right then. He did and the adults roared with laughter, reconizing themselves as children. The kids love the fact that the adults love the books too.

I was very disappointed that this book was only 33 pages and still cost the same as full length books. My daughter read this in a matter of 30 minutes and enjoyed the story - but not a good buy

Barbara Park has a wonderful understanding of a child's daily life and "strife." She has engaged entire classrooms in eagerness to read!!

My daughter loves Junie B Jones, and her antics are sometimes just crass enough to make my daughter question her motives (making her think about her own behavior) and laugh at choices other kids might make in a social situation. Good for discussion as well as family reading time where everyone can laugh and take turns reading aloud.

I thought that this book was so good because Junie B.Jones was trying to find her secret admire and he was right behind her. My favorit part was when Junie B.Jones looked for her secret admire and one of her best friend said ''every boy liked her''.
