About "Beverly Cleary Louis Darling"

  1. Beverly Cleary Louis Darling

    Beverly Cleary born April 12, 1916 is the author of over 30 books for young adults and children Her characters are normal children facing challenges that many of us face growing up, and her stories are liberally laced with humour Some of her best known and loved characters are Ramona Quimby and her sister Beatrice Beezus , Henry Huggins, and Ralph S Mouse.Beverly Cleary was born Beverly Atlee Bunn in McMinnville, Oregon When she was 6, her family moved to Portland, Oregon, where she went to grammar and high school She was slow in learning to read, due partly to her dissatisfaction with the books she was required to read and partly to an unpleasant first grade teacher It wasn t until she was in third grade that she found enjoyment from books, when she started reading The Dutch Twins by Lucy Fitch Perkins Thereafter, she was a frequent visitor to the library, though she rarely found the books she most wanted to read those about children like herself.She moved to California to attend the University of California, Berkeley, and after graduation with a B.A in English in 1938, studied at the School of Librarianship at the University of Washington in Seattle, where she earned a degree in librarianship in 1939 Her first job was as a librarian in Yakima, Washington, where she met many children who were searching for the same books that she had always hoped to find as a child herself In response, she wrote her first book, Henry Huggins, which was published in 1950 Beezus and Ramona, Cleary s first novel to feature the Quimby sisters as the central focus of the story, was published in 1955, although Beezus and Ramona made frequent appearances in the Henry Huggins series as supporting characters.In 1940 she married Clarence T Cleary and they moved to Oakland, California The Clearys became parents to a set of twins, Marianne Elisabeth and Malcolm James, in 1955 Clarence Cleary died in 2004 Beverly Cleary currently lives in Carmel, California.She has also written two autobiographies, A Girl from Yamhill and My Own Two Feet.

  2. 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 of how good it would be For many years Beverly Cleary has proven herself to have a striking understanding of exactly what it means to be a kid, and she succeeds with perhaps or at least equal stunning skill in the pa [...]



  3. 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 seemed so 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 scho [...]


  4. In Margaret Donaldson s quintessential Children s Minds, she discusses the importance of decentering in the language we use with children Teachers know than students, and thus often make false assumptions about shared knowledge The better you know something, the risk 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 tell [...]



  5. Oh the dawnzer lee light I literally laughed the entire first chapter, remembering it being read to me as a kid at some point Then I wondered the entire last chapter how it was that Ramona got away with not going to school Her mom must have really had an interesting conversation with someone to make that happen Still holds up Again, a few cultural gender norm issues, but nothing that s beyond what you d expect for a book of this era boys do this and wear that, the gypsy costume mention for Hallo [...]


  6. I just reread this as part of an informal Ramona will save us, as she always has book group with a friend It is, by no accident, the one I reread most as a kid, in which Ramona begins school, has an actually lovable teacher, and decides to drop out after determining said teacher doesn t love her Somebody please, like, knight Beverly Cleary The woman aspires to sainthood.Although I should probably regret the fact that I relate this much to a five year old, I continue to take comfort in the common [...]


  7. Ramona the Pest is the first of the Ramona series written by Beverly Cleary This book introduces the lovable character, Ramona In this particular book, Ramona is beginning her first year of school, Kindergarten You soon learn about what kind of character Ramona is, a wild child She loves horsing around, joking around, and being the typical playful kid Her older sister Beezus, easily gets annoyed by Ramona and refers to her as a pest In school, Ramona has trouble paying attention and listening to [...]


  8. A few weeks ago, I made a list of books that my 8 year old niece might like based on books I read when I was her age When I picked up the books from the library, I had a sudden urge to reread them for myself or in some cases, read some children s classics for the first time I m going to be a party pooper and say that I m not sure if I should give this a two or three star review, in spite of other glowing reviews It was a nostalgic read I remember the characters well However, I do not like some o [...]


  9. Adorable How had I not read the Ramona books as a kid It s fun reading these to the kids talking about how things were in the olden days but not as old as Little House, right mom


  10. My mother read me every Ramona Quimby and Henry Higgins book growing up and I read them again when I was old enough to read This rainy Sunday afternoon seemed like a good time to read a Ramona book and it was like visiting an old friend



  11. Oh, Ramona Kindergarten drop out with a doll named Chevrolet and singing about the dawnzer lee light, you hold up to my memories I cannot believe how long ago this was written because it really does not feel dated, other than in a few small instances that are easily forgiven Beverly Cleary was ahead of her time, and Ramona is a timeless character.


  12. This cute and funny little book really shows the trials and perils of starting kindergarten, along with the huge desire to be grown up I especially enjoyed it because of the 4 and 5 year olds that I know and love.



  13. This is a fun book to read aloud with your children I don t remember reading the Ramona Quimby books when I was young, but I did love The Mouse and the Motorcycle So when our oldest daughter brought this book home from her school library, we were very excited to read it I had no idea when it was originally published, although there were several parts of the book that harkened back to an earlier time I was a bit surprised that Ramona was allowed to be at home by herself and walk alone to school a [...]


  14. I didn t realize until after I had finished the book just how old this book is 1968 Geez I noticed some things were a bit dated like singing the Dawnzer song Star Spangled Banner every morning at school Also, Mrs Quimby shopping for fabric and patterns to make clothing for her family On this same shopping trip she bought a replacement cord for the toaster Ha Ha Today, mom would probably just buy a new toaster and would not be making her own clothes I knew it was old but I didn t know it was 42 y [...]


  15. Beverly Cleary has a real gift Although her books span a period of decades, they all read as though they were written today There s a few odd details in some of them, but mostly they rely on good storytelling and well, very real seeming children.This is the story of Ramona s kindergarten year It can be hard to find chapter books that are worth reading to kindergarteners, but this is it Ramona actually seems like an actual child who is actually, really, truly in kindergarten When she s told to si [...]


  16. What do I like about Ramona I like that she s innocent She s terribly curious and interested in the world around her She s definitely stubborn and tries too hard for attention, but she s not mischievous.That mischievousness is a problem I have with Junie B Jones and her ilk The messages from those books seem to be that being sneaky, mouthy, disrespectful long as you re clever about it, is a great way to be.What I like particularly about Ramona the Pest is the way Beverly Cleary explores the emot [...]


  17. Not much to say about the amazing Ramona series that has not already been said, we all know that they are classics These are my favorite read alound books because they remind adults of the pace and significance of a day s event for a child Although I did not read this in the French I wanted to have the cover image of my favorite illistration Get your hands on an used copy the current edition has horrible, cutesy pictures Ramona is a scrapper, not a sweet little girl who keeps her clothes nice Sh [...]


  18. Ramona the Pest is Ramona s misadventures of Kindergarten told in her own point of view Now that I could actually listen while Ramona was narrating rather than Beezus, I could like Ramona than I thought I would Although Ramona is very dramatic, I thought her kindergarten tales were cute and her reasoning throughout the story entertaining I feel like I ll be able to see Ramona grow throughout her books which would be really fun for younger readers to grow up with.


  19. Ramona is starting kindergarten and learning how hard it is not to be a pest, especially when she s continually misunderstood.I didn t remember Ramona being such a wonderful character She s worshipful of her teacher barely tolerant of Howie, the son of her mother s friend and alternately lovable and trying to her family Ramona has a zest for life that can hardly be squelched, even when it gets her in trouble for pulling Susan s irresistible curls Boing


  20. Super delightful Beverly Cleary hits being a five year old right out of the ball park I had a few Lol moments and was nice evening spent with Ramona and her escapades.


  21. So, here I am Just a single girl, at home by herself on a Saturday night, reading Beverly Cleary Perfectly Normal.



  22. Book 2 in the Ramona series, bigger imagination yet Another year older and now on to school for real this time She falls in love with her teacher but yet she does not want to behave the way everyone wants her to Ramona states no one understands her and how she feels Putting it simply she beats to her own drum There are many incidents that Ramona wants to give up simply there no reason to go back into school She looses a tooth , she makes new friends and some not so much A spunky kindergartner wh [...]


  23. My daughter and I love to read Ramona books together We can t believe all the trouble she makes I love having read these books as a child and getting to read them with my daughter.
