Junie B Jones is a bad role model, sure. But what you have to think is reading a book won't change your life. If you don't want to have your kids reading incorrect grammar and having her being a bad role model because you incorrectly think it will change something, then fine! Good for you that you are SUCH A GoOd PaReNt. NOBODY CARES!!! If you don't want your kids reading the word stupid or saying it, then cool. It's a bad idea, but cool. Your kids are eventually going to say dumb or stupid and such. Shielding them from saying stupid does more harm than good. What is the point in shielding them from the word? Teach them when to use it so they don't overuse it, but don't keep them from using it so when they eventually rebel and say stupid they will use it in the wrong situations where is will actually be offensive. While Junie B. is a bad example, if your kids learn what she does and do it, then they will be punished by you and stop. They will eventually realize that what Junie B. does is bad and stop doing what she does entirely. With the grammar issue, while she also has terrible grammar, that is also the same grammar that the average 4 year old has so it doesn't really matter. Just teach them correct grammar so they know what to do. Point out how Junie B. Is doing stuff wrong, but don't just deny the reading entirely. This book has educational value to teach kids what not to do and just have comedy in general. Thanks.
