Beverly resolved to become a librarian and to write when she grew up.

Beverly has won many prestigious awards including the American Librarians' Association Laura Ingalls Wilder award.

Product Description

About the Author

Beverly Cleary was born in McMinnville, Oregon, and until she was old enough to attend school she lived on a farm in Yamhill, a town so small it had no library. Her mother arranged to have books sent to their tiny town from the state library and acted as a librarian in a room over a bank. It was there that Mrs. Cleary learned to love books. Generations of children have grown up with Ramona Quimby, Henry Huggins, Ralph Mouse, and all of their friends, families, and assorted pets. Beverly Cleary continues to capture the hearts and imaginations of children of all ages throughout the world.

My daughter has enjoyed listening to the Ramona stories as much as I did when I was little. Fabulous stories about 4 year old Ramona and her exasperated sister Beezus.

A basic for every child's bookshelf 9 Jan. 2007
By M. Riegler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I remeber reading the Ramona books as a child and recently purchased the collection for my 8 yr. old and 5 yr. old daughters. They beg every night to hear another chapter read to them. The stories and situations are timeless and they can easily identify with Ramona and Beezus. The stories are told from a child's point of view, which can be sometimes enlightening for us grownups who have forgotten what it's like to be 4 or 5 years old. My girls delight in hearing about Ramona's occaisional "wickedness" and very stubborn nature.

I find myself giggling when I recognize things from the era that it was written (my childhood!) like putting plastic bread bags over your shoes and then stuffing them into rubber boots! I highly recommend this collection of books. The word wholesome comes to mind.

Still great stories! 28 Sept. 2007
By ShopsLot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I loved these books as a kid and now my daughter's love the stories too. The illustrations inside are enough to help give the kids a little idea and then they picture the rest inside their heads as we read along! I really do prefer these Ramona stories compared to the Junie B Jones stories. Ramona seems to be alot more wholesome where I do find that Junie B Jones can be quite the rude little girl often. Very nice to be able to share with my girls and they are always trying to tell the stories to their friend that see the books too. Very cute!

My daughter is 7 and devoured the Ramona books. She was able to relate to the character and found these books easy to read. They were her first page turners!

They Hold Up Amazingly Well (My Theories on Youth) 2 Aug. 2010
By Timothy P. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I hold a personal belief that every so often we should go back and revisit those things that were important to us in our youth. Whether it's picking up a copy of an album you haven't heard since high school or watching "The Breakfast Club" for the first time in 20 years, I think it's important to put yourself in touch with who we were.

So, when I heard about the Ramona movie coming out, I decided it was high time to revisit some of these books, which were favorites of mine from grades 2-5. Not only was I surprised at how much of these books I remembered, I was also very pleased with Cleary's writing and the universality of the situations in these books. In many ways, they serve as a window into how kids deal with things from the perils of having a younger sibling to take care of to parental unemployment. The great thing about these books is that the messages are never heavy-handed. Cleary lets them unfold naturally through the characters, in particular Ramona Quimby and her sister Beezus (in this set, anyway).

Some people may feel it's a waste of time to look backward at what made us who we are. I can't think of anything better to ground myself. And even more so, I'm incredibly pleased to find what good taste I had as a child. Highly recommended for those of us looking back and those looking to introduce their grade schoolers to reading.

I'm glad I took the time. If you haven't read these since grade school, you should, too.

The Wonderful World of Ramona Quimby 18 April 2011
By Z Hayes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
After plowing through the Junie B. Jones' series of books (which I personally did not care for), followed by the Ivy and Bean series of books (a favorite of mine), I was wondering which chapter books to get my six-year-old reader. She is reading independently and has shown a great interest in reading chapter books. Luckily, I came across positive reviews of the Ramona Quimby series here on Amazon and decided to get her the first four books.

They have been a great hit. My daughter loves the antics of kindergartener Ramona Quimby as she goes through one adventure after another. This boxed set proved to be value for money, with four books in the collection. The boxed set contains Beezus and Ramona, Ramona the Pest, Ramona the Brave, and Ramona and Her Father. The stories are well-plotted, and unlike the Junie B. Jones series, Ramona is not quite as bratty or rude as Junie B. The language is well-written, and is actually enough of a challenge for young readers venturing into chapter books. The chapters are much longer than both the Junie B. series and Ivy and Bean series, so patience is a necessity. Though there are illustrations, they are few and far between, so that is something to take note of, especially if your young reader is a visual learner and needs to see lots of pictures. Other than that, this is an excellent chapter book series for young, independent readers.
