Cute little children's book--I don't read a lot of early reader stuff, but this one made me smile. Jules loves digging for worms, making up jingles, and learning new words--and she also has a hard time paying attention. She's much younger than the narrators I'm used to (she's about to turn 8), but the book still deals with some important issues: changing friendships, overcoming fear, and realizing when you're wrong.
A grade 4 teacher bopped into my office and asked for books on peer pressure that were easy to read. Perhaps a picture book? she asked hopefully. I looked at her slack jawed and mumbled, "Er.ah.um." She laughed as I pointed to my head and sputtered, "Brain dead." Seems to happen quite a bit this time of year. Today I grabbed this book and HOORAH! it is exactly what she was asking for - okay it's not a picture book - but I read it in 1 hour. Yepperoo, I think it might work! Do you know what I lov [...]
Seven-going-on-eight year old Jules Bloom has been offered a opportunity of a lifetime. She's been invited by Ms. Kingston, a beautiful lady that randomly came up to her when she was eating in a restaurant with her family, to attend an T.V. commercial audition.Jules will be competing for the role in a orange mouthwash commercial. There's just one problem. Jules Bloom doesn't do oranges. No, like seriously. Since the throw-up incident from a orange sherbet a long, long time ago, Jules has refused [...]
Funny, quirky characters mixed with a good story about Jules going for a commercial and finding a new best friend. I love book characters that revolve around artistic endeavors. For the beginning chapter book kids.
I enjoyed this book and thought that the main character, Jules, was fun and creative. I liked how she makes lists and organizes her friends into the "ABC group." My one drawback was the inclusion of astrology in the book though it was a good opportunity to discuss what this means. It's just not a topic I expected to hearOverall, it was a good book though.
It was hilariously loved how it started

A fun, spunky chapter book. This 140 page book is a quick read due to the large, easy to-read-print and lightly illustrated text, making it accessible for voracious young elementary students who are itching to read longer books. The plot and the irresistible main character are complex enough to make the book appealing to reluctant 3rd-4th grade readers as well.
- Gnome and I had opposing opinions on this one. She loved it, and I was bored. - Gnome liked all the silly girly stuff, and she liked the drama with the girls.- I was not so amused with the silly drama stuff. - Sadly, this is a series, and Gnome wants to read more. Hopefully the next book is better.
Seven-year-old Jules Bloom is the kind of girl who wears light-up high-top sneakers, striped shirts, floral-print corduroy shorts, navy tights with turquoise polka dots, and argyle kneesocks - all at the same time. Jules is an individual, that’s for sure, and it seems to run in her family: Her mother uses bright red paint on the living room wall to brainstorm a list of names for dad’s new restaurant, and her brother always announces himself upon entering a room by shouting “Big Henry!” R [...]
Almost-Eight-Years-Old Jules Bloom doesn’t expect anything special to happen on the day she sings her very own, made-up-for-fun Fizzy Ice Cream Cone song at the dinner table at the local diner. Well, maybe she expects her artist mother, chef father, and not-so-good-at-standing-still little brother Henry to clap and cheer. But she certainly doesn’t expect a casting director, the effortlessly cool Colby Kingston, to invite her to audition for a mouthwash commercial! The audition is on Friday, [...]

I look up and the waitress has walked away from us. I think she thought I couldn't take care of my little brother all by myself while my mom was in the restroom, but she was wrong. I can take care of him just fine.Jules is mature and capable, a free-spirit, a spacey daydreamer, a bit of a tomboy, and an aspiring actress with pizzazz--the last according to a talent scout who overhears Jules' family at a cafe and asks her to audition for a commercial. Jules has many dimensions, which makes her an [...]

One day, while at a diner with her family, a woman in the next booth starts talking to her--turns out she is shooting a commercial and wants Jules to audition because she has "pizzazz." Jules is excited to audition, but also nervous. It doesn't help that her best friend is no longer her friend, she spends all of her time with Teddy, and she's hoping that [...]
I'm always on the lookout for fun early chapter books that I can recommend to readers. Starring Jules is just such a book. Delightful characters? Check. Interesting plot? Check. Appealing setting? Check. Jules reminds me a great deal of some other great early chapter book characters: Clementine, Judy Moody, Junie B etc. Yet she is also unique in her love of making up and singing jingles. I like the fact that despite her entrance into the acting world, she is still very much a kid with a kid's wo [...]
Starring Jules(Third Grade Debut) Jules Bloom is entering the third grade, and, unlike most kids, she is not excited. Jules thinks her teacher, Mr. Santorini is a little strange. He even makes them do jumping jacks. Who thinks that is a good idea? Not Jules. On top of stressing over her third grade teacher, and his behavior chart, Jules also has to worry about the sitcom she is acting in, “Look at Us Now.” With all the pressure on her and the stress of not wanting to be moved to yellow on he [...]
This was a very cute book. Jules was a great quirky character with some typical friendship issues. It was nice to see during the course of the book that some of the friendship issues were resolved. I loved the tryout Jules did for the commercial and her reaction to the orange mouthwash - very funny. The story left the reader hanging as Jules got an offer to do a movie. As part of the committee I am on I am looking for books for grades 4 - 8. When I finished reading this I was left thinking it wa [...]
Eight-year-old Jules Bloom does things her own way, including dressing, hanging out with her friend Teddy (considered weird by her former best friend Charlotte). Her exuberant personality earns her a shot at a commercial as well as the attention of Elinor, a new girl at school who just might be a good friend. Despite her excitement about the audition, she worries because the product she has to swish in her mouth is orange, her least favorite taste in the world. Readers will find Jules quite refr [...]

This is such a cute read. It reminds me a lot of my daughter, and I know she will enjoy this series, not only now but later. I love the fact that Jules keeps lists, as even being an adult I keep lists too. I thought this was normal? No?Starring Jules reminds me of Junie B with a mix of Fancy Nancy. I absolutely adore it.I loved it when Beth wrote out how the new student sounds with her accent, brilliant! I can not wait for the rest of this series, I mean, who could totally pass up on a sparking, [...]

I think my younger grade chapter book reading girls in 2nd and 3rd will love this series about a New York second grader whose irrepressible personality catches the eye of a casting agent. Before you know it, Jules is enlisting the help of the new girl, good friend Teddy and even ex-best friend Charlotte to try to get over her aversion to orange flavored foods and drinks to try to land a role in a commercial. Jules reminds me a bit of Clementine (one of my favorite little girls in all of kid lit) [...]
Originally posted here: nothingbetterthanabookspoThis is a great chapter book for young readers. It was short, easy to read, and very entertaining! I found myself laughing as I read this book that is meant for kids! It was so fun! Jules was such a fun character. She was so spunky! The storyline was great. It was not really relatable in the sense that most kids don't get to actually audition to be an actor. However, what kid doesn't dream of that? It was a great idea, and something that I would h [...]
