Reception of Junie B. Jones books

I agree in that these books can be entertaining for adults and children. However, after my daughter brought one home and she read it me, I was a little horrified. As college educated parents, regularly encouraging proper grammar, I found this book encouraging of poor grammar. Also, my child's school (as do we) discourages the use of words such as "stupid" and "dumb." My daughter actually stopped reading when those words came up and said she didn't want to say them. The particular Junie B. Jones book she brought home presented Junie spying and humiliating her teacher. There did not appear to be any consequence or repercussion of her actions. My daughter was instructed not to bring home any more Junie B. Jones books.

Poor grammar, disrespectful attitude

Someone gave me one of these for my daughter and I was not impressed. The child uses shockingly poor grammar and she is rude and disrespectful to the adults in the story. I'd much prefer my daughter read books with role models to emulate rather than pick up bad habits.
