Junie B's Essential Survival Guide to School (Courtesy Random House) Junie B., that irrepressible grade schooler, is back! Barbara Park’s brand new “Junie B.’s Essential Survival Guide to School” has hilarious tips on everything from “bossy bosses who will boss you” to names you should never ever call classmates. Among them: “You stinky stinkbomb” and “You dirty rotten ratty pants.” Instead, she suggests, try “You person who I don’t want to smell at this particular time” and “You teensy little hamster pants.” In other words, invaluable back-to-school advice for the K-3 crowd! And it can be yours. Just click “comments” and tell us, does your family have a favorite back-to-school ritual? Tell us all about it, and we’ll draw a winner’s name next Monday.

(P.S. Congrats to Celia – Cecilia Bedelia blogger – who won last week’s “Petit Appetite” cookbook giveaway!)

    My children and I love getting fresh, new school supplies. Each one gets their school’s list and off we go! Then, we have lunch out and ice cream for dessert!
    That is one of our back to school rituals. We also have some of the friends over for games and pizza.
    Thanks, Cindi

    No real ritual here. We just buy things as needed.

    My daughter being left handed in a right handed world would take a trip to the left handed store and see what is new and available.We would always be sure to buy the left handed composition and spiral note books and this made school work much easier for her.
