But either way, she’s gone out into the world and made more friends than I ever dreamed possible.”

Barbara Park is also the author of award-winning middle grade novels and bestselling picture books, including Skinnybones, Mick Harte Was Here, and Ma! There’s Nothing to Do Here!

    We had to stop the party and read the book!!

    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.

    Not Much More Than a Sample

    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

    Junie B Jones cracks us up!

    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.

    From the point of view of a Nine Year old.

    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''.

    My 2nd grader loved it!

    My daughter loves Junie B and read this book within a week. Her 2nd grade teacher was also reading it so they had a little contest to finish it and discuss it before Valentine's Day. Very cute and enjoyable. That Junie B is something else!
