100 Books in 2012: Junie B., First Grader

Book 31: Junie B., First Grader: Turkeys We Have Loved and Eaten (and Other Thankful Stuff) by Barbara Park

Over the past week, I have read this book aloud to my daughter, a chapter or two each night, and we have laughed our way through Junie B.'s ridiculous shenanigans, mispronunciations, and just all around silliness as her class comes up with their Thankful List:  not what the teacher expected, but an honest first grader attempt at truly being thankful for stuff.

At her school's book fair, we chose this book to purchase and donate to her school library.  Once it was processed and cataloged, she got to be the first student to check it out.  That was certainly a thrill for her! And she enjoyed my reading it with her each night.  On to the next one!
