Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Junie B Jones is so much fun!

Here’s some common sense for ya, if you don’t want your kid to read it, don’t read it to them. These books are hilarious. I think it is best to read the first book together, so you can set the mindset for your child. We often stop and reflect on a choice Junie B Jones made in the book. We also agree, that the word stupid is just a word. It is not nice to say. But everyone’s grownups have different rules. Some people can say it and others do not. And there is nothing upsetting in that. Do not blame an educator for your child’s interest in these books. Do not blame an educator for reading these books to your children. Instead, reflect on the foundation you have laid with your child and their mental capacity. If you are more concerned about the word stupid, than the fact that you still wipe for your 5 year old after they poop…just do not say anything at all. You do not have the literary knowledge to make these choices.

Love it!

I've been reading this since I was 6 or 7 and it's really funny! Junie B. is always getting into mischief. She is always saying funny things and....that's all I have to say right now. If you're looking into this for your kid, I definitely recommend it. (Also I am 9 years old I don't know why it doesn't say that.)
