    No matter what others said, she never thought she was a pest The people who called her a pest were always bigger and so they could be unfair Ramona the Pest, P 10 Things had such an unexpected way of turning out all wrong Ramona the Pest, P 79 This book far exceeded my expectations For many years Beverly Cleary has proven herself to have a unique understanding of what it means to be a kid, and she succeeds with perhapsstunning skill in this book than any other she has written No matter what others said, she never thought she was a pest The people who called her a pest were always bigger and so they could be unfair Ramona the Pest, P 10 Things had such an unexpected way of turning out all wrong Ramona the Pest, P 79 This book far exceeded my expectations For many years Beverly Cleary has proven herself to have a unique understanding of what it means to be a kid, and she succeeds with perhapsstunning skill in this book than any other she has written I have never been a kindergarten girl, but I identified with Ramona s problems and joys just as closely as if I not only had been a kindergarten girl at one time, but still was one Beverly Cleary has a rare and special ability to bring the emotions of her characters home to the reader, no matter who that reader might be, because anyone who has feelings will recognize their own misunderstood parts in Ramona s personality Ramona the Pest is quite funny, and touching, as well, and the story is constructed so deftly and with such heart that it is hard to imagine a reader who would not be won over by Beverly Cleary and Ramona I might slightly favor Ramona Quimby, Age 8, but this book is right there on the same level Ramona the Pest is a nice, easy flowing read, and a book that I will remember fondly for a long time As the tagline says on the cover, Anyone who calls Ramona a pest just doesn t understand Ramona I am happy to say I think I do understand Ramona, and I wouldn t think of calling her a pest People who called her a pest did not understand that a littler person sometimes had to be a little bit noisier and a little bitstubborn in order to be noticed at all Ramona the Pest, P 162

    Miss Binney, I want to know how did Mike Mulligan go to the bathroom when he was digging the basement of the town hall Miss Binney s smile seemed to last longer than smiles usually last Ramona glanced uneasily around and saw that others were waiting with interest for the answer Everybody wanted to know how Mike Mulligan went to the bathroom Boys and girls, she began and spoke in her clear and distinct way The reason the book doesn t tell us how Mike Mulligan went to the bathroom is Miss Binney, I want to know how did Mike Mulligan go to the bathroom when he was digging the basement of the town hall Miss Binney s smile seemed to last longer than smiles usually last Ramona glanced uneasily around and saw that others were waiting with interest for the answer Everybody wanted to know how Mike Mulligan went to the bathroom Boys and girls, she began and spoke in her clear and distinct way The reason the book doesn t tell us how Mike Mulligan went to the bathroom is that it is not an important part of the story.Miss Binney spoke as if this explanation ended the matter, but the kindergarten was not convinced Ramona knew and the rest of the class knew that knowing how to go to the bathroom was important They were surprised Miss Binney did not understand, because she had showed them the bathroom the very first thing.This book is the second in Cleary s series about the indefatigable young Ramona Quimby, and the first to be written from Ramona s point of view A point of view so undeniable that Cleary wrote sixbooks about her.In this installment, Ramona begins Kindergarten She learns to write her name She gets new boots She finds a boy she wants to marry Or, a few She has an existential crisis about Halloween And she loses her first tooth and learns just because someone is mad or disappointed in you doesn t mean they hate you.Adorable, funny, and the next best thing to being five again

    Me 4 starsDaughter age 6 4 starsThis was a winner for my 6 year old daughter Normally we read picture books before bed each night, but I started this chapter book as a change of pace now that school has started up again She s always excited to read at night, but seemedso with this book waiting for her as she was excited to see what would happen to Ramona next Her favorite part was the ending where Ramona read the letter she received from her kindergarten teacher asking her to come b Me 4 starsDaughter age 6 4 starsThis was a winner for my 6 year old daughter Normally we read picture books before bed each night, but I started this chapter book as a change of pace now that school has started up again She s always excited to read at night, but seemedso with this book waiting for her as she was excited to see what would happen to Ramona next Her favorite part was the ending where Ramona read the letter she received from her kindergarten teacher asking her to come back to school because she was missed.My favorite parts were the pulling of Susan s springy curls and how Ramona admitted that she would not be able to not pull Susan s curls.My son s favorite part, remembering back when he read this same book, was Ramona making an engagement ring out of a slimy worm by wrapping the worm around her finger I think we will continue with some library picture books this week, then maybe start the other Ramona book we have next week

    True confession I thought a lot of Ramona s pest behavior was horrible, even while I strongly suspected that I was guilty of the same thing

    In Margaret Donaldson s quintessential Children s Minds, she discusses the importance of decentering in the language we use with children Teachers knowthan students, and thus often make false assumptions about shared knowledge The better you know something, therisk there is of behaving egocentrically in relation to your knowledge Donaldson finds an example of such egocentric behavior in a story from Laurie Lee s autobiography Cider with Rosie After his first day at school In Margaret Donaldson s quintessential Children s Minds, she discusses the importance of decentering in the language we use with children Teachers knowthan students, and thus often make false assumptions about shared knowledge The better you know something, therisk there is of behaving egocentrically in relation to your knowledge Donaldson finds an example of such egocentric behavior in a story from Laurie Lee s autobiography Cider with Rosie After his first day at school, Lee furiously tells his mother that he had been cheated He was told to sit there for the present Yet he never received his present I sat there all day but I never got it I ain t going back there again Where Piaget claims young children s inability to communicate well is a result of their inability to decenter, Donaldson turns that premise around in citing Lee We sometimes miss children s true potential because we assume they understand our language We could get better responses and better learning if we really listened and thought about how we are saying what we are saying.Donaldson s use of Laurie Lee s anecdote had a powerful effect on me Then, at a talk by Marcia Henry, the author of the indispensable Unlocking Literacy, Henry brought up the impact Donaldson s citing of Cider with Rosie had on her Donaldson, Henry and I could have found the same example of egocentric language in Beverly Cleary s Ramona the Pest, in which Miss Binney tells Ramona on her first day of kindergarten to sit here for the present The difference is that Miss Binney realizes the source of confusion, and shocks Ramona by apologizing to her in front of the class I m sorry.It s all my fault I should have used different words Miss Binney is a cool teacher, unlike Laurie Lee s, and for that matter Ramona s first grade teacher, Mrs Griggs, whom we meet in Ramona the Brave All of the above leads to my conclusion that the Ramona books, which follow Ramona Quimby from preschool into fourth grade, are just as valuable as texts for early education and child psychology as any other work Cleary lets us in on the way children think and how their thinking develops with great insight, and of course, great humor.Consider Cleary s treatment of this novel s eponymous moniker, despised by Ramona Ramona did not consider herself a pest People who called her a pest did not understand that a littler person sometimes had to be a little bit noisier and a little bitstubborn in order to be noticed at all Highly recommended
