Hello, school children! Hello! It's me . . . Junie B., First Grader!
I have been going to school for over one and a half entire years now. And I have learned a jillion things that will help you survive at that place. And guess what? NOW I AM GOING TO PASS THIS INFORMATION ON TO Y-O-U!!! I wrote it all down here in Junie B.'s Essential Survival Guide to School! Here is some of the stuff I wrote about: * Bus Rules * Teachers (and other bosses) * Carpools * How to Stay Out of Trouble (Possibly) * Homework * Funwork * Friends (Plus Children You May Not Actually Care For). And that is just the tip of the ice cube! 'Cause I drew all the pictures myself. Plus also, there are pages where Y-O-U can write and draw, too! So open it up and get started. You will have fun, I think!
