Read in July, 2011

I read every Beverly Cleary book I could get my hands on when I was in Junior high (what most of you see as middle school).

One of the things I most notice now is how much relates to my childhood: the constant reference to an electric coffee pot; the idea that a girl should not be kissed even after multiple dates; the idea that a boy would wait for that first kiss; parents involvement with their children; calling parents Mr. and Mrs. - for children Mother and Father. But what is most noticeable are the references to the parents growing up in the depression and how that effects their present behavior.

Still good books although seriously dated.
