Junie B. Jones is almost six years old. She licks her black shoes to make them shine and hates it when people call her Junie instead of Junie B. After bullies push her down on her first school bus ride, she's afraid to ride the bus home, so she doesn't. Instead, she hides in the supply closet in her classroom. Having the whole school to herself is fun at first-until she has an emergency. Young listeners will revel in the antics of this very precocious, outspoken, and endearing five-year-old. This award-winning author tackles a young child's first day-of-school fears with a humor and insight that will tickle the funny bones of any listener. Christina Moore's spirited narration captures all the exuberant and innocent irreverence that make little Junie B. a delight to the ears.

"Junie B.'s first day of kindergarten is fraught with calamity. Bullies push her down on the bus ride to school. People call her simply "Junie." To avoid the ride home on the "stupid smelly bus," she hides in a supply closet. Having the building to herself after school is lots of fun--until Junie B. has an emergency. Christina Moore brings this feisty 5-year-old to life with spirited narration. Her voice has the right amount of anxiety in it, especially when it edges toward hysteria. She keeps a steady pace and does a good job in the few instances when she needs to switch from child to adult voice. P.B.J. (c) AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine"
