Ramona and Her Mother (Ramona Quimby #5)
Ramona feels this is the awkward agetoo little to stay by herself after school when her mother is at work, but too big to enjoy playing with pesty Willa Jean at her sitter's house. These days, all Ramona really wants is to twitch her nose and be her mother's little rabbit like she used to be. Can't she be her mother's little girl forever?...more
A nice enough memory to be sure, but more so in light of the fact that things were frequently less than ideal at home. I have a friend that can rattle of pleasant memory after pleasant memory of her childhood while mine frequently ...more
Our youngest was given the book Ramona the Pest (Ramona Quimby to read by her second grade teacher to practice her reading comprehension and I thought we'd give the series another try.
We listened to this book narrated by Stockard Channing on audio CD on a family road trip to Williamsburg. ...more
I think what I didn't like about this book so much is that its real - the bad haircut, the struggle to be understood, the per ...more
خیلی خیلی از خوندنشون لذت بردم. کتابها با اینکه در غالب داستان برای بچهها نوشته شده بود ولی در اصل روانشناسی کودک بود. بعد از خوندن این سری کتابها دیدم نسبت به دنیای بچهها و کارهایی که میکنند عوض شد. فکر میکنم از بعد از اون روابطم هم با بچهها بهتر شده. از سری کتابهایی هستند که حتما باز هم میخونمشون. ...more
This is the 5th book of a series of books called Ramona & Beezus. This book doesn't have a really interesting plot, because it talks about a little girl named Ramona' life.

In this book you will read some of the sill ...more

This is a book that tackles growing pains children will have from realizing they have more responsibility and different expectations as they grow. Ramona acting out in various ways is a symptom of her difficulty figuring out how to transition into "big-girl-hood, ...more
The "quarrel" chapter seemed unbelievable to me as a kid and still seems unbelievable as an adult. The quarrel seemed really pretty tame, and it is hard to believe that Beezus and Ramona have not seen or heard their parents ...more
"'Some grandmother,' said Mr. Quimby, 'spitting on her stockings.'"
As a kid, I didn't own a copy of this, so I didn't read it quite as much as Ramona and Her Father, but I loved it just the same. A comments discussion from a Jezebel.com book review mentions the infamous pancake turner incident with Mr. and Mrs. Quimby. Cleary simply titles that chapter "The Quarrel," but oh man, she remembers how seriously kids take their parents' ar ...more
This book in particular is a perfect blend of wacky situations and reflections on the tender anxieties of being a young person who just wants to be SEEN by her family.
