A funny book

Junie B. Jones does not want to go on the stupid smelly bus. I liked the book because it's funny. She hides in the closet instead of going on the bus. She needs to go to the bathroom but the door's locked! Read Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus to find out more!

Favorite with transitional readers

It's mischievous Junie B. Jones's first day of kindergarten and she hates having to ride the "stupid smelly bus" back and forth from the school building. So, when it's time to leave for the day, she stows away in a storage closet to avoid the trip home. Once everyone is gone, she make the best use of her new freedom. This first book in the Jones series demonstrates why Park's books are so popular with transitional readers. Jones's irrepressible voice is reminiscent of a young child's and her experiences in kindergarten will make the transitional reader feel like a "big kid" because they're several years older and know the ropes. Technically, the sentences are longer than an easy reader but still short enough for a beginning reader to digest easily. The chapters are all less than ten pages and the story lines are simple and straightforward. A quick moving pace will hold readers' interest.
