Except I don’t like Beatrice. I just like B and that’s all”) as she enters first grade and all of the trials and tribulations that come with that.
About ‘Junie B. Jones: The Musical’
Change is in the air for Junie B. – she’s starting first grade, and her best friend from kindergarten doesn’t want to be friends anymore, but she’s made friends with the new kid, Herb, on the bus. Plus, Junie is having trouble reading the blackboard, and her new teacher, Mr. Scary, thinks she may need glasses – oh no! With a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament, and Junie’s “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal,” you’ve never seen such an exciting first-grade year!
