Barbara Park (born Barbara Lynne Tidswell on April 21, 1947) spent her first two years of college at Rider University in New Jersey and earned her B. S. degree from the University of Alabama. She began writing children's books after she had children of her own, since 1981, the first of which was called "Operation: Dump the Chump". It was not her first book to be published though, that honor went to "Don't Make Me Smile". Park is best known for her Junie B. Jones series which was first published in 1992. Since then, at least two new Junie B. books have been written a year. Park also writes books for older children, such as The Kid in the Red Jacket, which deal with more in-depth issues. She has won seven Children's Choice Awards, and four Parents' Choice Awards.
Meet the World's Funniest First Grader--Junie B. Jones!
Go Room One! With over 50 million books in print, Barbara Park's New York Times bestselling chapter book series, Junie B. Jones, is a classroom favorite and has been keeping kids laughing--and reading--for over 20 years! In the 22nd Junie B. Jones book, 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?
