AFTERNOON KINDERGARTEN IS HAVING A FIELD DAY, AND JUNIE B. JONES IS TEAM CAPTAIN! ONLY, HERE'S THE PROBLEM. ROOM 8 KEEPS ON WINNING TOO MANY EVENTS. AND SO HOW WILL ROOM 9 EVER BECOME THE KINDERGARTEN CHAMPIONS? AS CAPTAIN FIELD DAY, WILL JUNIE B. FIND A WAY TO LEAD HER TEAM TO VICTORY? OR WILL IT BE UP TO SOMEONE ELSE TO SAVE THE DAY?
Junie B. Jones's kindergarten teacher has some strange ideas about field day: "Field Day is a day to run around in the fresh air and enjoy the sunshine. We came out here to have fun and get some exercise. And we're not going to care one little bit about who wins or who loses." Only what's so fun about losing? That's what Junie B. wants to know. In the great contest between room 8 and room 9, somehow, room 8 keeps winning all the events. As Captain Field Day of room 9, Junie B. is feeling her superpowers--and her good sportsmanship--slipping away. Can anyone save the day?
