Beverly Cleary Beverly Cleary is one of America's most popular authors. Born in McMinnville, Oregon, she lived on a farm in Yamhill until she was six and then moved to Portland. After college, as the children's librarian in Yakima, Washington, she was challenged to find stories for non-readers.

Mrs. Cleary's books have earned her many prestigious awards, including the Amercan Library Association's Laura Ingalls Wilder Award, presented in recognition of her lasting contribution to children's literature.

Her Dear Mr. Henshaw was awarded the 1984 John Newbery Medal, and both Ramona Quimby, Age 8 and Ramona and Her Father have been named Newbery Honor Books. In addition, her books have won more than thirty-five statewide awards based on the votes of her young readers. Her characters, including Henry Huggins, Ellen Tebbits, Otis Spofford, and Beezus and Ramona Quimby, as well as Ribsy, Socks, and Ralph S. Mouse, have delighted children for generations. Mrs. Cleary lives in coastal California.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Growing-Up Feet?

A great read-aloud!  Jul 30, 2001
My children loved reading this story about twin 4-year olds over and over again. Beverly Cleary is always great and the illustrations are cute.
New Boots  Jul 9, 2000
Brief Synopsis: Jimmy and Janet are anxious to grow up. They tell their mother that they think that their feet are growing, so she takes them for new shoes. At the shoe store, Mr. Markle says that they haven't outgrown their shoes. This makes Mr. Markle very sad, because he's afraid that he won't be able to sell Jimmy and Janet's mother any shoes for the children. He ends up talking her into buying boots to go over their old shoes. They get bright red boots that will stretch. These boots are just right for their growing feet.

Note to Teachers: This book would be good to read when studying a unit that involves measuring growth in inches or pounds. It is also good to read when talking about going shopping. The book contains beautiful pictures. Grades K-3 would enjoy this book by Beverly Cleary.
