Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide To School Book Review

Title: Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide To School
Author: Barbara Park
Series: Junie B. Jones
Genres: Survival guide, diary, journal
Age range: First Graders


This is Junie B.’s hilarious guide on how to survive your first years at school. She says she wrote it with some help from Grampa Frank Miller. This survival guide/journal is based on Junie’s own experiences as someone who has been in school for over a year and a half!


Section 1: Getting Started

This section tells you all the things you need to know and buy before you go to school for the first time. It talks about backpacks and how much they can weigh, some of the feelings you may experience on your first day of school, what to wear, school supplies (boring and fun), what to say to the other kids in your class, etc.


Section 2: Getting There

Junie lists all the ways she can think of getting from home to school and back, and lets you know which method she likes best and which she detests, plus rules and etiquette for the school bus and carpools.


Section 3: Getting Bossed Around

This section gives descriptions of all the BOSSY people at school who will tell you what to do and when to do it, including the principal, the janitor, your teachers, the nurse, etc. Of course, Junie knows these people are paid to boss kids around at school, and you have to listen to them.


Section 4: Getting In Trouble

What Junie mainly talks about in this section is how to stay out of trouble, not how to get into it. She tells you about passing notes in class, calling other kids names, rules at school (and what she thinks of them, of course), etc.


Section 5: Getting Graded

Junie discusses homework, marks, tests and (gulp) report cards! She gives tons of illustrated examples in this section, so you are fully prepared for what some of this graded work will look like.


Section 6: Getting Smiley

This section is, as Junie says, “about new friends and other happy stuff.” She gives lots of good advice about not being nervous about meeting the new kids in your class – they’re all in the same boat as you, after all! There are other things Junie loves about school, and she tells you all about the bathroom, the water fountain and all the good smells at school.

    • Usually after supper.
    • In the morning, right before class starts.
    • Homework? I've never done it.

    To be completely and utterly honest, i think it's slightly young. I wouldn't go any younger that 16. Being 13 myself, i think it's hard trying to decide and put a label on something like this. If you bisexual, great! Straight, great! What i'm saying is....We have PLENTY of time in life to decide, so don't rush it just to say "Hey, i'm bi!" Or "Hey, I'm straight!"

Use ur OWN quotes or a pic or something, not a dead character from Harry Potter k?  Oh i'm so sorry if the right to have my own views has offended you, i'm just  saying that the way i see it is that at the age of thirteen a kid is now being introduced to topics such as these and their hormones are now kicking in and they should give themselves time to grow, these are my views and i'm entitled to them, just the way you are to yours. Second of all its my signature , i'll put what i want and quote what i want from who i want, and if it bothers you that much then just be the big kid you are and ignore it, K?
