I see alot of people saying that it is not very educational and that it will produce bad grammar habits. But what people are not understanding is that these books are not fo litle children (like ages 2-5) they are for the older grades. Barbra Park (author of the series) knows very well that if these books get into the hands of little children, that they are going to pick up the bad habits and they are going to speak terribly and write terribly. I have two children. A ten year old and a five year old. But the section in our bookshelf that contains all the junie b jones books is not for my five year old. My ten year old enjoys reading these books. I hope i am not offending anyone, but this is my opinion
