Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Kasey Giard
Lovable Junie B. Jones shares her thoughts on Valentine's Day by writing a description based on each letter of the holiday name. Her quirky, stream-of-consciousness style is entertaining and fun. As many children may be prone to do, she misspells Valentine, placing an "m" where the second "n" belongs. Though spelling it this way may confuse readers, Junie addresses the issue and why she prefers her own creative spelling. The story pages contain spaces for readers to add their own doodles or to complete the drawings. The first and last few pages of the book contain thirty Valentine cards, most of which are perforated for easy removal from the pages. Two pages show shaded outlines, offering space for children to paste Valentine cards they have received, transforming the book into a clever keepsake. The Valentine cards show colorful cartoon pictures and often bear silly jokes. The book also contains over forty stickers and a listing of books about Junie B. Jones. Reviewer: Kasey Giard
