A Good Book , not as good as the best book read (by me) Feb 13, 2008
I like this book because when I was 2,3,4,5,6,7 (that is how old I am now) I always had an interest in pregnancy. I like animals and I always wish in books that the author will follow the birth closely. When I grow up, I will write a book that does follow the birth closely. I hope someday, my book will be made. I hope I will become famous. Then, I will be happy.

Ramona Forever Oct 17, 2006
Ramona is a regular girl until she finds out something her mom wants to keep from her. A Beverly Cleary book, Ramona Forever is based on the troubles Ramona goes through to be considered a good girl. How hard it is to get your place taken is one of Ramona's troubles. The book is just right for children that want something entertaining, because Ramona's life can be compared to others. Ramona Forever was written for Elementary School kids. In the grades forth and over. The book has proper language for the age group. It has easy vocabulary too, and it also contains a lot of illustrations for being a chapter book. Since this part of Ramona's life is seems so real, this book is serious, anxious, and concerned. It gives much information to know how Ramona and her family are like. "Mother will you phone Mrs. Kemp know?" "Won't that upset mother?" "Ramona do you want to go to your room?" This book is filled with plenty dialogue, narrative. The book is well-organized because it's in chronological order that it's good enough to understand. It has many sad points as Ramona's life goes. This book also has illustrations that are very artistic and some fancy ones too. Young readers will love Ramona Forever. The way the book tells the hard times Ramona has is not boring. After all readers will find it fun, and interesting.
Enjoyable For All Kids Apr 12, 2005
Ramona Quimby and her sister, Beezus, stay at a neighbors' house after school. But when their neighbors' rich uncle comes for a visit, embarassing and irritating both girls, they beg their parents to stay home alone. Their parents agree, but a lot can happen when you're home alone, especially when one of the most fiesty, trouble-making eight-year-olds has to try to be obedient! And as if that isn't enough to keep Ramona busy, many more problems arise. Her father is having trouble finding a job, and her mother, who Ramona and Beezus notice is becoming unusually tired and concerned about gaining too much weight, seems to be keeping a big secret for someone, one she refuses to tell the girls. How will Ramona manage?
This book was so interesting that I read it twice. I just finished my second reading, and though it became boring in some parts because I had already read it a previous time, it was entertaining and enjoyable. Ramona is a fun character that will enchant children young and old, as well as a few children-at-heart. If you like Junie B. Jones, or have enjoyed previous Ramona books, then I guarentee you will like this book! It's a good one!
A Heartwarming Story For Readers Ages 5-105! Feb 26, 2005
This story begins with Ramona Quimby meeting Howie Kemp's rich Uncle Hobart (whom Ramona highly dislikes), Mr. Quimby's job and finacial issue, and becoming jealous because Raomona's mother and Aunt Bea are keeping secrets from her and her older sister, Beezus.
Soon, Ramona finds out that her mother is going to have a baby. I'm sorry I had to give away the ending! But there's more...and I won't tell! Now, Mrs. Quimby won't work anymore, and Ramona doesn't have to Mrs. Kemp's house after school. The problem is, is that the book is TOO old-fashoned. I know it was written years ago, but it's sort of strange that it's too expensive to buy disposible diapers and the Quimbys are stuck using washable cloth ones.
Ramona now has to show responsibility. Through all the hardships, sadness, excitment, downfalls, and uprises, Ramona will always be simply Ramona...FOREVER!!!
