I love these books Will put a smile on your face that stays there as you continue to read So funny Yes I'm reading kid's books at work again sue me I absolutely loved Junie B as a kid and surprisingly the book holds up The writing is just as witty and funny as I remember maybe even so It captures the weird worldview kids have without sacrificing any plausibility I actually laughed out loud a few times order of events school book reportFirst Junie B came home and ran to her brother's roomNext Grandma fluffed her hair again and Junie B backed up into her roomThen she told five scary secrets about Halloween amd she said she said she wanted to be Screamy the Clown Last she went to the store and bought somethingFinally it was a creepy clown costume and came out screaming and scared her GrandmaCadee age 7 May really is a thorn in the side of Junie B after being teased about being scared of Halloween Junie B decides to be Suirty the clown because he is so scary he could scare monstersWhat follows is typical Junie B funny and rude but just being real to her nature MY 9YO SON BROUGHT THIS HOME FOR ME TO READ SAYING IT WAS HILARIOUS AND IT DIDN'T DISAPPOINT ALSO LED TO A NICE DISCUSSION OF DICTION AND WHY I DID A GROAN IS FUNNIER THAN I GROANED SO I'M A HAPPY MOM I've been hearing about Junie B books for years but my boys never seemed interested Someone told me about them again recently telling me how hilarious these books are and how much her kids love them so I picked this one up at the library to read with my daughter over Hallowe'enI'll start by saying that my daughter really liked this book She was engaged and thought it was funny and enjoyed the picturesThis was a cute story of Junie B who is scared to go out trick or treating because a boy at school has filled her head with scary stories It is fun how she tries to get out of the situation but then also comes up with a solutionHowever I had a terrible time reading it to her Junie B uses very strange grammar much of the time I don't know any kid who talks like she does I found myself correcting it for my daughter as I don't want her language to regress I am continually torn with books like this They are engaging and kids like them but the grammar I know there is something to be said for being approachable and using authentic language etc but much of language is learned from what we read I can understand wanting kids to sound like kids but I don't see how consistent strange grammar helps them at all It feels condescending like they couldn't understand the proper use of language Maybe it's just me because these books are wildly popularSo there is my rant It's possible that my daughter will seek out of these books Maybe it will be a good opportunity to talk about language I skipped uite a few books since the last one; Junie now has glasses and a baby brother But she’s still wildly inappropriate and nearly adult in her diction and funnier than ever This time around she’s afraid of Halloween so decides to dress up as the scariest thing she can think of a clown Specifically Screamy the Clown Only no one seems be scared of her it seems and she gets fruit instead of candy on her first outing even though she did not say “trick or fruit”As always I thought some of it was truly funny mostly because of Junie’s unrealistic speech patterns “I think that will cut down on my part in the conversation” But while the humor went over my kindergartener’s heads they caught all the mean words and bad behavior by all the characters There wasn’t much in the way of a moral or lesson which is I think unfortunate So far this is hysterical a clown chased Grandma Helen Miller and suirted her wseltzer water at some point and Mother can't believe Junie B wants to be that clown for Halloween But see Junie B is scared of Halloween so she is picking the scariest thing she knows to be so she can scare off others Mother scolds Junie B for being naughty in the costume shop and tells her basically to uit being mouthy to which Junie B replies well that is going to limit the rest of our conversation then I love this kid KAYLIN'S REVIEW 9 years oldI think it was great because its just a little girl who is in first grade and she wants to be a clown and scary but it is not really working out for her The things that make it great is the part when the little boy in the fishing costume drops a apple right in her clown pants Another thing that makes it great is when Junie B tries to scare her grandpa when she is in the clown costume That's why I think this book is great This is a really really funny book because Junie is a clown who is supposed to be funny but Junie tries to scare people They start to think she is a jerk They act like she is not there and they talk bad about her clothes She thought weird about it She didn't understand people were getting upset
