Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cute! A hilarious read that takes place during Valentine's Day, Junie B. Jones gets this huge valentine from a secret admirer, and of course that causes lots of drama and speculation to occur. The author does a great job at showing development in the characters and relationships surrounding Junie B. and I found this to be entertaining and enjoyable.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Junie B. Jones and the Mushy Gushy Valentime (Junie B. Jones #14) by Barbara Park, Denise Brunkus (Illustrator) I'm surprised/impressed kids can read this and do well with it. Or either that, the particular 7 year old I am with is a better reader than most. The author tries to write as if Junie is talking/thinking, so it jumps around quite a bit, as an easily distracted five-year-old would. Not only that, but many of the words are spelled wrong (valentime, nouncement) and the sentence grammar is wrong and the sentences go on and on (like, well, a five-year old). I think it would be a great, funny book to read aloud to a small child, but I would think these intentional errors would make it more difficult for someone who is just getting to the chapter book stage of reading.
