Park, Barbara Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School 144 pgs. Random House Books for Young Readers; Reprint edition, 2013. $9.35.  Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G; Violence: G.

In this book the famous first grader, Junie B, reveals all her secret school survival advice from school supplies, how to deal with teachers, how to stay out of trouble, homework, and even information about the best color clothes to wear to avoid stains from school lunch!

Students love this series, and reprints are great –since they avoid the older style covers. The glossy pages are fully color illustrated over notebook style paper that students will find very appealing. Junie B.’s quirky personality doesn't fail to come across in her eclectic advice.
