Junie B., First Grader: Boss of Lunch by Barbara Park

Something very wonderful is happening to Junie B. Jones. And it’s called—hurray, hurray!—she’s getting to be a professional lunch lady! And that means hanging out with Mrs. Gutzman in the cafeteria. And standing behind the counter. And even wearing a real actual hair net! Who knows? Pretty soon she could be the boss of the whole entire lunch operation!
My thoughts: I love Junie B. Jones, I love reading these books to my class of second graders and they love to hear them. Junie B. (never just Junie) is charming, funny and irrepressible. She is also a hand full at school and at home. I suggest you read some of these books to your kids. If your kids are grown up, read them to yourself, you won't be sorry. Boss of Lunch will probably rank up there with my favorites in the Junie B. series.

This does look like a cute book! Things have really changed from when I was a kid. :)

I love Junie B.! In our book, she ranks way up there with Ramona Quimby!

Both my 18 and 8 y.o. daughters started out with these early chapter books. My youngest and I have read the entire series together (hope there is more to come!).
