The was a kickball game for the class. Junie B was practicing in her back yard when the ball went over the the fence she kick her mothers watering can and hurt her pinkie toe. Junie is going to be in the half time show instead of the game , she is playing symbols.

Junie B. is so excited about the kickball tournament, but when she practices, she hurts her toe on her mother's watering can and cannot play. She tries to find new ways to participate. She says "no" to cheer-leading, but then she decides she would be perfect for the halftime show! Junie B. learns to not let the mean kids affect her, so she becomes the bigger person and juggles the food they threw at her. This is a very relate-able, inspiring book for first or second graders. I would recommend this book to kids of that age group because they are quick and easy reads. Also, the children will naturally begin noticing grammar mistakes--great learning tool (serves an educational purpose).

Junie B. can't wait to play in the schools kickball tournament that she practices every day after school. One day she is practicing and kicks the can over the fence, but she doesn't want to go get it so she decided to kick her mom's cow watering can. When she kicks it she hurts her toe. Because she hurt her toe she couldn't participate in the Kickball Tournament and instead did a half time show. She wasn't happy but then her father showed her how to juggle and thats what she wanted to learn for the show. When she went to perform with one other class mate named Sheldon, Sheldon got so nervous that he ran away and didn't perform and Junie started getting laughed at and they started throwing biscuits at her. She picked up the biscuits and began to juggle them. She wasn't sure if she was going to be able to but she gave it her all and she did a great job. This book can teach children that if they want to do something to put their minds to it and it can be done with practice.
