I awoke this morning to sad news. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones books, passed away after battling cancer. We are all huge fans of Park and her books in our home, and I can think of many of my son's friends who first cut their chapter-reading teeth on her books. We are sad to see her go.
However, I am so grateful for Barbara Park's amazing books, and I feel like there may be a Junie B. Marathon coming on in our home soon!
