Beverly Cleary and Ramona Quimby

Currently I am taking a Children's Literature class and was assigned to read Ramona and Her Father. Growing up I absolutely loved the Ramona series by Beverly Cleary and I especially like the early illustrations of some of her books done by Louis Darling.

This assignment led me to my nearby library to check out several more Ramona books that I remember liking so well from my childhood. I feel a little funny checking out so many children books, but the assigned reading caused me to remember just how much I really like Beverly Cleary.

I decided to write her a letter thanking her for her contribution to children's literature.

The original Ramona, she has since gone through a few makeovers to keep up with the times, but this original version will always be my favorite.

I am doing a presentation on this book. You could say I'm going through my childhood Ramona craze all over again. And that's okay with me.

  1. I LOVED Ramona and Beezus. I think I related more to Beezus being the oldest, I should read them again.
