Junie B. Jones and the  Stupid Smelly Bus (Junie B. Jones, #1)Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus by Barbara Park
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

I got this book as MB was starting Kindergarten and riding the school bus. So I thought what a perfect series to start with her first year of school.

I had hopes that we would be reading this series through the year and growing up with Junie B.

Well I guess I should of read the reviews a little bit before I ordered. I was disappointed. Junie B is not well behaved. She uses worlds like stupid and hate. I found myself censoring as I read. Not what you want to be doing as you put your little one to bed after a long day.

The story was cute and deals with the some of the fears and unknowns of going to school for the first time…but could of done without showing the behaviors I don’t want in my daughter.

Now off to find another series that hopefully will do better.

Same problem! I bought the first 2 books in the series without knowing anything about it. Her behavior is terrible, and Stupid isn’t even a word we are allowed to use in my house. Boo!

have you found a good series you like? I was so disappointed….who would use stupid and hate in books geared towards 5 year olds????
