Fan of the books disappointed

As a huge fan of the book series I was let down by the site. Perhaps thats a bit strong, but none of the playfulness or personality of Junie B translates to the site. There is a fairly simple paper doll flash game that may keep kids interested for a few minutes, but past that its just a standard collection of downloadable print-outs with Junie Bs face.

just not for kids

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (14 ):

Junie B. Jones fans will like this supplement to the popular early reading chapter books. The interactive games on the site encourage families to read together and are a fun approach to improving listening and reading skills. Junie B. includes a list of her favorite books so that kids will become interested in expanding their libraries. Also, fans of the series will like creating their own stories with the paper dolls and clothes that kids can print, color, and cut out. There's a hidden gem for parents too, in the "Teachers" section, which includes lesson plans based on the books.

The downside? Although the activities are fun, besides a couple of games and some printouts, there is not much more for kids to enjoy while they're actually on the site. And then there's the issue that the books themselves include Junie's inventive spellings and sometimes smart mouth. However, true fans of the series should have no problem finding something they'll enjoy.

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.
