Synopsis

The kids in Room 1 are invited to an easter egg hunt at Lucille's rich, expensive mansion! But Junie B. Jones must battle her classmate May and a bunny suit if she's going to win that playdate in Lucille's new heated indoor pool.

Review

The Junie B. Jones series is very popular among young readers. As the spunky protagonist moves on to first grade, the popularity continues. What the book lacks in character development, it makes up for in silly situations and approachable language. Junie B. Synopsis

Review

The Junie B. Jones series is very popular among young readers. As the spunky protagonist moves on to first grade, the popularity continues. What the book lacks in character development, it makes up for in silly situations and approachable language. Junie B. navigates a world that's familiar to children and has simple, straighforward relationships that are easy for a young reader to understand. The female main character could turn boys off of the series. This is unfortunate because it is a highly entertaining book that could encourage a child to want to read more.

This book is a great item to help transition kids from picture books to chapter books. The text sticks mainly to simple words with which younger children would be familiar. More complicated words are and repeated in different forms in close proximity to each other. Common usage mistakes are made by the children in the book and corrected by other children. These techniques could help children expand their vocabulary. Overall, this is a good book for a young reader who wants to read for pleasure without realizing that s/he's learning.

Critical Reviews

http://www.curledupkids.com/dumbunny.htm

This review is a good personal review with an opinion from the target audience. While it is not from a well known published source, it does offer the parent a good idea of what to expect.

Other established sources did not review this particular book in the series, although the other books well known and have many reviews. The series in general is well regarded and the reviews are short as it can be assumed that the target audience is already familiar with the series.

My daughter reads out loud to her brothers and me in the car to and from school. Since the beginning of the school year, I've heard about Lauren the Puppy Fairy finding lost pets, and Miss Frizzle driving her magic school bus through the laws of physics, and Jack and Annie dropping their tree-house on every time period since the dawn of creation, and Stanley becoming flat and then round again, and found all these series to be anywhere from simplistic and insipid to solidly educational and mildly My daughter reads out loud to her brothers and me in the car to and from school. Since the beginning of the school year, I've heard about Lauren the Puppy Fairy finding lost pets, and Miss Frizzle driving her magic school bus through the laws of physics, and Jack and Annie dropping their tree-house on every time period since the dawn of creation, and Stanley becoming flat and then round again, and found all these series to be anywhere from simplistic and insipid to solidly educational and mildly entertaining.

And then came Junie B.

I love this kid. I love Barbara Park for writing this kid. This series is nothing short of brilliant, reaching that deliriously sublime place where both children and adults are entertained and utterly charmed. Honestly, I could compare it to Seseme Street, which is just about the highest praise I can give.

An excerpt:

"My aunt Bunny is married to my Uncle Vern," Sheldon said. "Aunt Bunny has a lot of --"

Mr. Scary quick held up his hand.

"Yes, Sheldon, we know. You've told us many interesting things about your Aunt Bunny. But right now we don't need to hear any more about your aunt Bunny's --"

"Skull tattoos," said Sheldon.

"Please sit down," said Mr. Scary.

--end

The humor is subtle and intelligent and sweet. When we finished Dumb Bunny I went right out and bought three of the boxed sets so we'd be ready for our road-trip to Florida next month. Highly recommended to anyone with elementary school-aged children. ...more

Junie B. has become classic kit lit and a classroom staple for early readers. This impulsive sassy little girl takes me back to my classroom reading corner days where Ramona Quimby roamed free. In this book, Junie B., First Grader: Dumb Bunny, the students in room 1 have been invited to a an Easter Egg hunt at Lucille’s house with a playdate with Lucille and her heated pool as a prize. Junie has decided that she will win that prize, but competition from May and Lucille’s new “boyfriend” are proving to be serious obstacles. Add to that a big footed bunny costume and silly rules like no tackling, and this Easter party proves quite the adventure for this first grader.

The author has done a fantastic job of capturing the voices of these young characters, as any elementary teacher can tell you. She has also laced the book with learning opportunities, social cues, and new vocabulary well hidden in a giggle inducing story. Kids will love it and never know that they are learning something new.

This book, as well the entire series, is an excellent addition to any classroom or homeschool library and will make a fun accessory in any Easter Basket. Though the female protagonist appeal mostly to girls, boys will also enjoy Junie’s adventures, mine did at that age, and it makes a great read-out-loud for storytime groups.

My son James, who just started second grade, just finished reading this and said he liked it so I checked it out. The cover is adorable and I was kind of psyched. But all the characters are a bunch of mean conniving first-grade children. They make all the New York children I knew look like little angels.

There's also quite a bit of class warfare in the book, not that I actually object to that, but if you do, you might want to know.

There's also quite a bit of class warfare in the book, not that I actually object to that, but if you do, you might want to know.

And did they change the egg hunt prize that all the kids had been plotting for- a swimming playdate- at the last minute to flowers for their mother, and none of the kids cared? I was so confused. ...more

My 6 year old really enjoyed this book. She couldn't wait to read it each night, and we finished it quickly because she never wanted me to stop reading. I have several critiques of the book, but what really matters is how the age group in which is meant for responds to it, right? ;) Tip: You're going to need to be a very dramatic/theatrical reader to get through this one!

Grandson loved it.

Funny with lots of giggles. Spoken from a kid's point of view with the concrete and egocentric thoughts and words of a 7 year-old.

Genre: Contemporary Realistic
Recommended Grade Level: Primary

Junie B. was my favorite series growing up, but I hadn't read any of the First Grader books yet, so naturally I had to take advantage of this opportunity. Junie B. still carries that same spunk in this book that I remember her having in the earlier ones. This is a funny book that many students may be able to relate to in some way, but it doesn't have much take away except for a little bit at the very end about selflessness and being a Genre: Contemporary Realistic

Junie B. Jones and her class get invited to richie Lucille's house for an Easter party. Junie has all sorts of adventures (and calamities) while at the party - like willing the jelly bean contest but not really enjoying the prize for winning. The highlight of the party is the egg hunt, particularly obtaining the golden egg, which has a huge prize to go with it. I enjoyed this Junie B. Jones book though it's not one of the most humorous books of the series.

While this was entertaining, I was hesitant to let my 2nd grade granddaughter hear so much about kids misbehaving!

Junie B. Jones goes to a rich friend's house at a mansion for an Easter Egg hunt. The person who finds a special; golden egg gets to swim in Lucille's heated pool. Junie B. ends up wearing a bunny suit for the Easter Bunny who is a no-show, which makes it pretty hard to run and find the eggs. Will Junie B. do well hunting the eggs?

I thought this book was fine to read to the class when we read it to our K-1 group for latchkey. I felt that the words used in the book, their parents consider cuss words now (dumb, stupid, etc.) I think that it cause conflict for them to continue to listen to the book when they heard those words. I loved Junie B. Jones as a kid because of her sassiness, but it has changed in the couple years for children to like and get.

The Junie B. series is not on my top series books for children, but my 6 yr seems to like them. And as long as she is willing to practice reading, I will indulge her taste in this series, although I find Junie B. too smart-mouthed and attitudinal for my taste. The plot is typical - June B. gets in trouble and finds a way out of it. Dumb Bunny made a nice Easter basket surprise.

This was my first Junie B. Jones book. I read it out loud to my 8 and 5 year old. They loved it! I loved it! I would totally read these books for myself. Some of the jokes I felt were over my kids heads, and more on adult level. I would start laughing, and my kids didn't know why!!
But we will definitely be adding more of Junie B to our library!

It was good because it was talking about a dumb bunny at first but at the end it said a smart bunny instead of a dumb bunny.

I think the funniest thing in this is the adults reactions to the kids actions (as related by Junie B). Hilarious! Theres a lot of subtle head banging. Been there.
