We love it!,
This review is from: Junie B. Jones's First Boxed Set Ever! (Paperback)
My 4 year old and 12 year old daughters, my husband and I all love Junie B Jones books. They are really funny. However, as a role model, she is rather naughty and there is an element of incorrect pronunciation which is a bit confusing for children learning words. That didn't stop my 12 year old, my husband and myself all arguing about who was going to read the stories to my other daughter, as we all like them so much. In fact, I re-read to my daughter anything anyone else read to her, as I don't like missing out on the story!
We found the first Junie B Jones books in a bookshop about 6 months ago. The books are american but have been re-printed and in sale in UK and some are on sale in UK bookshops. I bought the first four from book shops and we really liked them.
After the first 4 had been read, I wanted to buy more but they were quite expensive in book shops to buy individually. I noticed Amazon selling them in boxed sets at a lot less. I ordered the next three box sets for Christmas and was a bit concerned that they were the same books as in the book shops as (a) the UK book shops didn't sell books that far on in the series (b) the covers were different.
When I received them, I was very pleased with them. I think they are the USA books and therefore has all USA terminology e.g. principal instead of head master. This makes no difference to them at all and they are absolutely brilliant.
I would say, these books are great for children between about 4 and 6 and to buy the boxed sets as they are better value for money.
