Laugh Yourself Silly with Junie B. Jones

 

About the “Laugh Yourself Silly with Junie B. Jones” School Bus Tour

The Laugh Yourself Silly with Junie B. Jones School Bus Tour brings Barbara Park’s bestselling Junie B. Jones book series to life to fans across the Northeast.

The tour features live performances by two actors playing Junie B. Jones and Mr. Woo, who travel to schools across the region in the “Laugh Yourself Silly” bus adorned with colorful graphics, incorporating the series’ brand-new look and the faces of Junie B.’s friends in the windows.

At each event, Junie B. opens her “Big Pink Trunk of Junk” and performs a show-and-tell, sharing instantly recognizable items from the series such as her stuffed elephant, Philip Johnny Bob, and the floaty ball from a toilet tank, Junie B.’s favorite “plumbing supply” with students. The events are recommended for children ages five and up, and also include an official book stamping and free Junie B. souvenirs for all kids.

Random House Children’s Books will work with you to connect your school with a local bookseller to provide book sales for the event and distribute order forms in advance of Junie’s visit. Books MUST be available for sale at these events.
