Memory Lane Mar 15, 2008
This book was a trip down memory lane because i used to love these book when i was younger.
Classic Ramona! Dec 2, 2006
After her father lost his job and her mother is forced to find one, 7-year-old Ramona begins trying to take the family's finances into her own hands...literally. She spends her days reciting various TV commercials, in the hopes of being noticed by a talent scout, when she decides to crown herself with burrs, ending less than successfully.
Ramona is also concerned about her father's health. At 7, she is painfully aware of classmates without fathers, and she is afraid that she may lose her own if he does not stop smoking.
Whether in the 1950s or today, Cleary hits the worries and joys of a seven-year-old dead on every time.
Good 4 younger kids Dec 21, 2005
This boook is ok, but the reason I disliked it was because of the younger aged vocabulary. I am in 6th grade so the vocabulary bored me to death especially since I have an already higher reading level than a normal 6th grader. I suggest this book to grades 3 and 4 the most maybe advanced 2nd grader.
Good 4 Younger Kids Dec 20, 2005
I really liked Ramona and her Father but I thought it was a little boring. I thought that because the reading level is lower then what I expected w/ me being a 6th grader and the fact that my reading level is already high. That is why I advise maybe grades 3 and 4 to read it; maybe advanced 2nd graders. They will enjoy this book a lot. All together I think it is a good book, but not for my age level. I really think that the way Beverly Cleary writes is funny and that 3rd and 4th graders will really enjoy it.
If only we had a million dollars... Apr 4, 2005
Well as they say, "Money can't buy happiness". Ramona thinks it can, well it can but it doesn't have to in this case. Mr. Quimby losing his job was tough on the whole family, especially Ramona. She couldn't do anything about it if she tried. Her father let her know they're trying to be a perfect family and surely enough this reflects back to my family. When my father lost to someone else for this "government" job, it was tough on me. I wanted to get a job, raise money, anything just to see my father happy. We aren't the perfect family and neither is Ramona's. That's why I can relate so much to her.
