Book # 22 Junie B., First Grader: One- Man Band







Go Room One! It’s time for the first-grade kickball tournament! Only, here’s the problem: Junie B. has hurt her big piggy toe and she can’t play on the team. So now what? She definitely doesn’t want to be a cheerleader. But wait! Maybe she could be in Sheldon’s halftime show! Then all eyes would be on her! And she would be the star! Hurray! Hurray! Junie B. . . . in the spotlight. What could possibly go wrong?

Home- To- School Connection

Junie B. is very disappointed when an injury prevents her from playing in the first-grade kickball tournament. Ask your child if he has been disappointed at one time or another. Ask him to describe what it feels like to be disappointed. Have him share individual stories about situations in which his were disappointed. Is being disappointed a permanent feeling? What might make disappointment disappear and “turn lemons into lemonade”?
