    Returning to my childhood, I picked up this cute piece for my current book challenge Beatrice Beezus and Ramona Quimby share an interesting sisterhood connection Ramona is that annoying four year old, seeking her own independence and annoying a much older 9 10 and mature Beezus, in this collection of short stories Ramona finds herself fixated on a certain book, the desire to join in the fun with the older children, and even to throw herself a party Beezus is left to process all that her Returning to my childhood, I picked up this cute piece for my current book challenge Beatrice Beezus and Ramona Quimby share an interesting sisterhood connection Ramona is that annoying four year old, seeking her own independence and annoying a much older 9 10 and mature Beezus, in this collection of short stories Ramona finds herself fixated on a certain book, the desire to join in the fun with the older children, and even to throw herself a party Beezus is left to process all that her sister is doing and seeks to right all the wrongs, while utilising her parents desire for a calm life to keep Ramona in line However, Beezus must come to realise that even if she does not like Ramona all the time, she loves her sister with all her being These tales pave the way for an entire collection of adventures these sisters will have, bringing a number of other friends and family members along Sure to entertain the young person in your life, Cleary shows that sibling rivalry and love surpasses the test of time Perfect for young readers who are learning to discover the passion of books.I remember reading these books and watching the associated television program in my youth While I also had a younger sister, nothing was as over the top as the antics that Ramona seems to create for those around her This first in the series is sure to open the way for many adventures that the young reader can discover, seeing how Beezus and Ramona tackle some of the issues that seemed to face young people at the time Without the aid of video games or hours of television on hundreds of channels, the Quimby girls had to find their own entertainment, which sometimes led to outlandish adventures While I would not have picked these stories up on my own, doing so has allowed me to tap into my childhood again, much as devouring stories of chocolate factories or errant Christmas pageants might as well With a young son just discovering the wonders of books, I hope to be able to pass along these types of stories to show him the wonders of books and how fun the experience can be Books open the mind and the soul, which is something that Beverly Cleary has fostered in this wonderful series.Kudos, Madam Cleary, for reminding me of the wonders of early independent reading I will pass along this passion to Neo and anyone else I can.This book fulfills Topic 5 of Equinox 2 Book Challenge The Earliest Remembered Chapter Book Read in ChildhoodLove hate the review An ever growing collection of others appears at Book for All Seasons, a different sort of Book Challenge

    Beezus could not help feeling annoyed Miss Robbins was letting Ramona stay in the class the one place where she was never allowed to tag along Miss Robbins would probably like her painting, because it would be so full of imagination Ramona s pictures, in fact, were so full of imagination that it took evenimagination to tell what they were.I ve had Beverly Cleary on my mind for a while now ever since NPR did a story about her as of this writing, she is 103 years old , so it suddenly se Beezus could not help feeling annoyed Miss Robbins was letting Ramona stay in the class the one place where she was never allowed to tag along Miss Robbins would probably like her painting, because it would be so full of imagination Ramona s pictures, in fact, were so full of imagination that it took evenimagination to tell what they were.I ve had Beverly Cleary on my mind for a while now ever since NPR did a story about her as of this writing, she is 103 years old , so it suddenly seemed ideal to take a break in the middle of the dystopian novel I m reading and turn to the gentle adventures of Ramona Quimby and her long suffering older sister, Beezus.This book is the first in the series, written in 1955, and is the only one written from Beezus point of view Beezus originated as a character in Cleary s Henry Huggins novels Cleary didn t write another Ramona book until 1968, and from then on every book was from Ramona s point of view.Ramona is four to Beezus nine in this book, and she IS pretty awful ruining two of Beezus birthday cakes in one day, inviting her friends over for a party without telling anyone, and, worst of all, defacing a library book so she can keep it.Cleary demonstrates why she s an enduring, endearing children s author here by having unshakable empathy for her characters Kids can sniff out an adult who is not one of us in a heartbeat And there s an important message in here that it s ok if you don t always love your siblings.I also like that Ramona s actions have consequences, whereas too frequently in other stories like this the older sibling is instead at fault for not having unlimited, supernatural patience to take one example, All s Faire in Middle School, a book by my beloved Victoria Jamieson that I didn t really like for that very reason, amongst others I feel a Beverly Cleary bender coming on and I m here for it

    Bottomline Started to read this to my 5year old neither of us were impressed, so we stopped.I remember reading this series when I was little and my daughter loves and very much relates to Ramona s antics in the movie remake that came out a few years ago so we were both very excited about starting this book But not very far in maybe half way through the 1st chapter , my daughter just couldn t seem to get interested for which I was thankful because it just wasn t settling right Bottomline Started to read this to my 5year old neither of us were impressed, so we stopped.I remember reading this series when I was little and my daughter loves and very much relates to Ramona s antics in the movie remake that came out a few years ago so we were both very excited about starting this book But not very far in maybe half way through the 1st chapter , my daughter just couldn t seem to get interested for which I was thankful because it just wasn t settling right with me, either See, we are very much about respect in our home no matter your size and frankly, I found myself disgusted with the way they talked treated Ramona just for being the little kid sister Now I understand kids can be challenging and push your buttons I have a very high energy, spirited, imaginative little being, that is always elbow deep in some sort of project or experiment but the overall tone of constantly being annoyed bothered by family and esp when it came to dealing with handling the antics of the littles does not fit into our family s philosophy, and is not the kind of model I need to set before my impressionable little person

    As a kid, I used to devour Beverly Cleary books and the Ramona series was no exception I recently found a copy of Beezus and Ramona at the local used bookstore, and I picked it up to relive a bit of my childhood As a child, I was drawn to the zest for life that Ramona brought to the page However, on this go around, I found myself identifying with sweet, lovable Beezus Her intelligent and quiet demeanor is such a contrast to that of Ramona s I now have a younger sister and she is a lot like As a kid, I used to devour Beverly Cleary books and the Ramona series was no exception I recently found a copy of Beezus and Ramona at the local used bookstore, and I picked it up to relive a bit of my childhood As a child, I was drawn to the zest for life that Ramona brought to the page However, on this go around, I found myself identifying with sweet, lovable Beezus Her intelligent and quiet demeanor is such a contrast to that of Ramona s I now have a younger sister and she is a lot like Ramona, so I can definitely see why Beezus gets so exasperated with her so often This is a timeless story about the differences between sisters and the love that they share even when they don t like each other This book, while heavily featuring Ramona, isabout Beezus and is told from her point of view I d recommend this book to young girls who have sisters that they feel like they just can t stand It s relatable and timeless Even though this book is over 50 years old can you believe it , it stands up to the test of time and is a standout volume of children s literature

    My own once annoying little sister ran her first 5K this morning and texted me afterward to tell me she had done it, how happy and accomplished she was feeling This is the perfect book to read on a day when I am thinking about her, since we certainly weren t always the sort of friends we are now I can t believe this book has been around since the 50 s aside from the fact that 9 year old Beezus spends her time playing checkers and making potholders Its wisdom is contemporary and, dare I say My own once annoying little sister ran her first 5K this morning and texted me afterward to tell me she had done it, how happy and accomplished she was feeling This is the perfect book to read on a day when I am thinking about her, since we certainly weren t always the sort of friends we are now I can t believe this book has been around since the 50 s aside from the fact that 9 year old Beezus spends her time playing checkers and making potholders Its wisdom is contemporary and, dare I say it, healthy You won t always love your family members in every moment It s OK to admit that.These books are good stuff

    I read this as a kid, and I loved the book and the story As a older sibling, I had several younger sibs to deal with although I don t remember any of them being as quite annoying as Ramona Some of the things she did actually made me chuckle as I read them although now as an adult I can not help but think of how absolutely aggravating it might have been to be Ramona s parents sometimes, especially with the apple bit.Even though this book would be quite dated now this happened in my grand a I read this as a kid, and I loved the book and the story As a older sibling, I had several younger sibs to deal with although I don t remember any of them being as quite annoying as Ramona Some of the things she did actually made me chuckle as I read them although now as an adult I can not help but think of how absolutely aggravating it might have been to be Ramona s parents sometimes, especially with the apple bit.Even though this book would be quite dated now this happened in my grand and great grandparents time even as a kid I enjoyed it nonetheless because of the quality storytelling, and still think it would be a fun read for kids today, showing how things were back then before video games or smartphones were even a distant possibility

    As a read aloud, young children will relate to Ramona, and older, independent readers will feel Beezus s pain This is my favorite Ramona book, because of the episode with the library book I m a librarian, see Ramona, being only four, colors in the steamshovel book Beezus checked out for her from the library, and they have to pay for it When the librarian stamps the book Discarded, and prepares to hand it back to the girls, Beezus sees the danger just in time If they give the book to Ramo As a read aloud, young children will relate to Ramona, and older, independent readers will feel Beezus s pain This is my favorite Ramona book, because of the episode with the library book I m a librarian, see Ramona, being only four, colors in the steamshovel book Beezus checked out for her from the library, and they have to pay for it When the librarian stamps the book Discarded, and prepares to hand it back to the girls, Beezus sees the danger just in time If they give the book to Ramona, she will learn the lesson that any book you want to keep from the library, all you have to do is color in it The book is given to Beezus, not Ramona, and a crisis is narrowly averted
