Barbara Park--Junie B., First Grader (At Last!)
Title: Junie B., First Grader (At Last!)
Author: Barbara Park
File Type: Mobi
Subject:Children's Books ReviewIt had to happen. The spunkiest sass mouth in room 9 finally B. I think I have mentioned that to you before... B., B., B., B., B.)The 18th installment in Barbara Park's popular beginning chapter-book series puts our temperamental heroine into a brand-new class where she has to make brand-new friends. And as if that weren't hard enough, her brand-new teacher, Mr. Scary (He made that name up, I believe, Junie writes in a journal assignment), figures out that she needs eyeglasses. Will all the other kids laugh at her? Will that obnoxious Excellent-plus-getting May become even more obnoxious?With Park's solid track record, the appeal of Junie B. just can't be doubted-she can be a good friend to readers her age, which is a difficult grade level to find fun books for. And even kids who don't need glasses will likely still giggle along as Junie B. plays the E game (an eye test) with the nurse, and kids who do need glasses will find themselves with a strong (if a little scared at first) ally. (Ages 4 to 8) --Paul HughesFrom School Library JournalGr 1-3-While first grade offers a whole year of exciting possibilities for Junie B., things get off to a confusing start. Feeling tentative about her new teacher, she renames him Mr. Scary. Her last year's best friend now has two new best friends and her old bus pal has a new buddy. Then, Junie's teacher discovers that she needs glasses. Now that is something to worry about. What if Room One laughs their head off at me? What if I look like a goonie bird and no one wants to be my friend? However, her classmates, who already agree that twins with rhyming names, a boy with a spiky gel hairdo, and bilingual Jose are fascinating, determine that Junie B. and her purple glasses are definitely cool. As always, Park is in touch with what the kids know and how they feel. A satisfying read, especially for fans.Sharon R. Pearce, Geronimo Public School, OK 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.
