Junie B.'s made it to First Grade and is having all sorts of adventures meeting new friends, becoming the boss of lunch, and creating a halftime show for the kickball game.
Dear first-grade journal,
Hooray, hooray! There’s a musical (a play all jumbled together with singing and dancing, I believe) that’s all about me, Junie B. Jones! (The B stands for Beatrice, only I do not like Beatrice. I just like B, and that's all.)
This is the bestest musical ever, I tell you! It's got loads of funny songs, and it's based on a bunch of books this lady, Barbara Park, wrote about me and the things I do in first grade.
Junie B., First Grader (at Last!)
In first grade, I meet new friends (like Herb and José, but not that tattle-tale May). But my new teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks I might need glasses!
Junie B., Boss of Lunch
I get to help my friend, the cafeteria lady! And I get to wear a real actual hair net too! Who knows... Maybe someday I'll be the boss of the whole lunch operation!
Junie B., One-Man Band
The whole entire first grade is having a kickball tournament! Only, when I practice my kicking, I stub my piggy toe so badly I can't play. But my friend Sheldon can't play either. So maybe we can do a half-time show instead!
Whew! I'm glad I can write everything down in my Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal! And you know what? I think I might like first grade after all!
Love (but not the mushy kind),
